Question about Pioneer VSX-818V-K Receiver
My pioneer reciever will not play all 5 of my surround sound speakers. It only allows 2 channels at a time, these 2 channels are the left and right front speakers, the center and two back speakers will not produce any sound at all. I know that my speakers are working because they were fine with my last reciever.
1. make sure you are sending a 5.1 signal to the receiver (my DVD player was configured to only send stereo even if I picked the 5.1 soundtrack, i had to fix that). Read the manual to see the indicator lights that would light up if you are sending a DTS signal or Dolby Digital.
2. Use the 'surround modes' to at least get pseudo surround

I had this problem too. Finally, after using the MCACC setup and making sure all the speakers worked, I found I had to set the source to FM, TV or whatever from the remote control and set the mode to advanced surround sound using the front panal button on the upper right. Had to fool with them a lot. Good luck.
