Do you have a optical/coaxial input on your system? Eg: cable, TV.I use a optical input on my Yamaha ( cable, satellite ). Look to see if there is a optical/coaxial output on your pvr, there should be. Use ether the optical or coaxial output from your pvr and connect it to the cable (satellite ) optical/coaxial input on your receiver. The manual that came with your Shaw PVR should explain how. You will get 5.1 surround if available on certain channels.I prefer optical over coaxial myself, but they both work well.If you don't have optical/coaxial inputs on your receiver, you will have to use RCA cables, analogue out on cable box, to tape input or aux on your receiver. You will not get surround sound, just stereo. But it's better than nothing.
You need to tunr the power off at the wall socket. Leave the unit off for at least 5mins. Then whilst holding the power on button on the unit down, turn the power back on at the socket, keep the power button depressed for at least 5secs. When you release it you should see -----------------, in the display. The unit has just been reset to factory mode. All features should now be present again. Hope this helps.
Make sure that the media you are using has the surround sound...eg. if you are listening to the radio then the rear speaskers will not work as the signal is not transmitted in surround...if you put a dvd in that has the dolby digital signal encoded on it then the rears should work....the rears will only work when you have the receiver in the surround mode..make sure the receiver is in the right mode...also, you may have rear speaker volume settings in the setup menu that may need to be set up..go through the manual and see if there is a setting for the rear volume...most home theater sets have this feature and it allows you to set up the system for different size rooms
u dont need to because all most all retailers lie about power outputs of their products for Example.
If a product says 180W it cant actually physiclly do this its very hard to explain but 180W is the Equivalent to 16W RMS so when u see these amplifiers that say a 1000W take no notice of them coz there **** fake's that can Probably only hold about 2W RMS.
i dont get all of it and i did a sound Engineering course Basically in the future i advise you to only buy something that says the RMS Wattage eg. Type of brands that will be accurate watts are A brand called MISSION very good at average price's, second TEAC,QUAD,maybe DENON but not too sure on them, but all these brands make seriously powerfull amplifiers,speakers,subwoofers,ect hope this helps you my friend
I don't know if this will help, but I encountered a similar problem with my Sony system. I just found out by mistake basically because I too was looking around for all these settings the manual kept showing me that was on the remote control, but I couldn't find them. Then one day I dropped the remote control on the floor and this hidden compartment at the bottom portion of the remote control slid open and voila, all the missing buttons I never could find. Thought I was loosing my mind. If this is not the case with your system, call the place were you bought the system or contact the company. Good Luck.
