ONKYO SR505 - Surround Sound Auto-Setup Not Working

Hello -

SR505 has the Audyssey, self adjusting surround-sound. You set the microphone in the "middle" of the room and the system self-adjusts the speaker balance by producing sounds from each speaker.

Mine runs through the process for all speakers but then a message that says something like "unable to complete process". No other info and no helpful info in the manual.

If I could manually adjust the speakers that would be fine, I'm not that much of a audiophile. But I would like to have more control over the rear and left/right speakers. The manual control seems to make little volume difference - perhaps I'm doing it wrong.

Any guidance is appreciated.

Bill

SOURCE: no surround sound

So your saying that you have no rear channel. Some recivers use a single stereo output ic for both sides on the rear speakers. you could have a defect with this IC . Anther thing Im sure you check3ed the obvious ie : the switch is on suround sound? If there is a front to rear fader is it in the middle? Good Luck

SOURCE: Onkyo TX-SR500 Dolby Digital problem

I just read over the problem you were having with your Onkyo TX-SR500 receiver. It sound like the unit needs to be setup for all five channels.Sence your symptom says the diplay shows Dolby D3/2.1. According to the owners manual with the remote control look for speaker setup whin the button is pressed the current speaker setup will be shown in the display. Press the preset/adjustment<> to change the current setting to five speakers. the listening mode will automatically change according to the number of channels you selected. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: remote code for sony playstation 3

you cannot control a ps3 with that remote because the playstation 3 only works with bluetooth. I'm sorry to have to tell you. you can purchase a remote that works with your system at any that sells your system.

SOURCE: Rear surround speakers quit working from my Onkyo

It looks like the audio output was changed on the player so that it doesn't output 5.1. Enter the setup menu on the player and change DTS to output DTS instead of what be labled as stereo or L/R and Dolby Digital to output Dolby Digital instead of whatever else it is set to.

How do I connect the audio from a Panasonic to p50-s1 to a marantz nr1403 so that I get surround sound audio?


The Audyssey setup does not use any audio from the TV. Audyssey is started automatically when you plug in the calibration microphone. Once you start the setup, it will output a calibration tone to each speaker. (Read the Audyssey setup instructions.) There is 1 digital audio optical input on the back of the NR1403. You will need a optical digital cable for the connection. Once connected, you'll need to use the input setup menus to select that digital sound input to go with the video input you are watching. Check page 15 of the manual.

Surround Speakers will not work


Perhaps you have the live wire in the wrong connector from the speakers? They should be color coded. I would check that first. And if you have moved, they are most likely in different positions, you'll have to rerun the audio setup for the surround sound. You should have a separate microphone to use for that that plugs in to the system.

7.1 speaker setup: no sound coming from right front/surr speakers


Solution to having no sound coming from certain speakers in a 7.1 speaker setup for TX-SR606 receiver when playing a DVD.

Review the cable setup for the DVD player since it was identified as the source of the problem. Best to unplug and plug in the cables to ensure they contact the back of the receiver's RCA jacks. Redo the microphone setup for Audyssey 2EQ calibration. A good chance that it is the cable that may have caused the malfunction and loss of sound from the speakers. The cables can come loose during setup and not plugged all the way to the back of the RCA jacks or a defective cable causing signal loss.

No sound playing through microphone


The microphone included with this receiver is for audio adjustments only. That's the "Audyssey Laboratories' MultEQ® six-point auto setup and room calibration system". You cannot hear yourself speaking through the microphone.

No sound back two speakers


After using the method of last resort (RTFM) I discovered that Yamaha 7.1 amps assign an order of priority to the speakers. The surround speakers have higher priority than the surround-back speakers. I had connected the rear speakers (in a 5.1 configuration) to the surround-back speaker terminals and since nothing was connected to the surround terminals the E-6 error happed on auto-setup.

I eventually fixed this by connecting the rear speakers to the Surround L/R terminals and then, via the manual setup menu, set rear surround = NONE. This causes the amp to route the rear-surround signals to the Surround L/R terminals. The auto-configure then completed successfully.
