The indicator is telling you you have a 2-channel input. You may have the Blu-Ray connected wrong. Or the source is only Stereo. I need more details to assess that.

The sound coming from all speakers is normal if you have any surround mode selected, regardless of the characteristics of the source

I imagine if you experiment you might find all speakers playing for any number of 2-channel sources, not just Blu-Ray. Besides actual Pro Logic decoding, the various surround modes can provide some interesting effects on non Dolby Surround material.

I recommend that you try them all on various recordings and you may find one or another of them preferable over vanilla stereo. I find that any given artist or music type, even within a given CD, may sound 'better' with different surround settings.

Hi there,

If you only have sound from the front left and right speakers when it's set to STRAIGHT, it means the audio source is only 2 channel stereo. As the audio source is from Blu-Ray, the audio should be HD if you are using the correct type of audio cable.

I really need more information from you to give a definitive answer. If you are only using a RCA type audio cable (red/white plugs) from the Blu-Ray to the Yamaha receiver then you will only get left and right front channels on the STRAIGHT setting. This receiver does not have HDMI, so you really need to be using a digital optical audio cable to get true 5.1.

Please can you let me know how the BD player is connected to the Yamaha receiver if you need further assistance.

Thanks,
BElectric

Check that the Blueray isn't set to downsample to stereo. Your receiver could also be set on stereo. Do you have a "sound" button where you can cycle through different modes?

Hooking up multiple components to HTR 6030


Once you have installed all the cables to the system, you will need to go in to the Yamaha's system settings (see owner's manual) and assign the audio inputs accordingly. The DVD input will need to be set to the optical input # you have selected. Optical and digital coax are not preset in most cases. Once you get to the input selection assign the digital # for DVD and then exit out. You should begin to hear the audio immediately. If not you missed a step. I do this for a living and every unit has its own routine you need to learn.  Enjoy the system Rob
