Since you're buying a $5400 receiver, You should head down to an audio shop and sample some speakers for yourself.
Speakers that sound wonderful to one person, may sound bad to another. Your ears are unique. Go to a local audio shop and take a CD with some of your favorite music and start listening to them. Energy speakers go well with Yamaha receivers, so I'd recommend you check those out. (The Energy RC Series is a little higher end than their Connoisseur series, but also cost a bit more.)
Again, When you're paying $5400 for a Receiver, you'll want to do some research on your own, and sample some speakers that YOUR ears like.

The Yamaha RXZ-11 does not come with any set of speakers. Infact there are no "recommended 11.2ch speaker kits". You are advised to purchase top quality Yamaha speakers. Better yet, build your own 11.2 kit. Its not too hard (internet helps) and its tremendously fun!

The signal that comes from most tv's via the optical output is a stereo signal only. That is what your receiver is reading. You would have to manually set your receiver to decode the signal into surround,.
Unfortunatly there is not any firmware to upgrade your unit to a higher HDMI format. There is a firmware though that corrects the following symptoms.
1. In case of playback of some DTS-HD Master Audio stream, pop noise may be generated. 2. Test tone may not be output under specific YPAO condition. 3. When test tone is output from presence channel, surround R channel is simultaneously output when speaker settings are PRESENCE SP "EXIST" and SWFR "NONE". 4. Multi channel input setting will be reset after power off the unit, in case of setting "INPUT CH" to "8CH" and "FRONT" to "VCR" or "V-AUX".

Connect the audio outputs jacks from the TV to any available audio input terminals on the Yamaha receiver, other than the phono input. You can use any analog audio Left (White) and Right (Red) inputs on your receiver such as the DTV/CBL, SAT or VCR input. There are no special settings needed on the receiver, other than selecting the correct input. There may be some settings that will need to be changed on the TV. Consult the TV ownersEmanual for setting up the TV to output audio to an external source. If youre TV has a digital output (Optical or Coaxial) it can also be run to one of the digital inputs on the Yamaha receiver, such as DTV/CBL or DVD. There may be some settings that will need to be changed on your TV. As always, consult the TV ownersEmanual for setting up the TV to output digital audio to an external source.
NOTE: When the source of the audio signal is coming from an HDMI device connected to the TV, the TV may not output in 5.1 surround sound.
With what signal did you try? Maybe your signal source (DVD/TV or radio) didn't contain any sounds for the center channel. Go to the Setup menu, Speaker setup / Manual setup and find there item called "Test tone". It will output a test tone to each speaker individually (you will see on LCD which speaker is being tested at each moment). If you will hear a sound from the center now, there is no issue and center is working fine, just your source didn't contain any sound for the center.
If it doesn't work, then either you have faulty cable, faulty speaker or faulty center output of the receiver. - Try connecting the center speaker to different output of receiver (this will test if speaker is OK). - Try connecting working LEFT speaker to left output with CENTER cable (this will test if cable is OK). - Try connecting working LEFT speaker with working cable to the CENTER output (this will test the output of receiver if OK - but use the Test Tone from Setup).
configure ur PC (both OS audio and third party sound driver) for surround sounds. control panel- sounds and audio devices - speaker settings - advanced - speker settings. so this done. make sure u select the 6 input channel - the button is on the right edge near the volume knob. near the vol button there are two buttons for selecting input type with up down arrow. from that u can select the input type this will be indicated on the top front indicator. but with the 6 input channel selected all selections are preceeded. if u select stereo mode u will have left/ right audio only. make sure u connect the input right. connect from computer to 6 channel input. main, surround, center and sub-woofer. connect the spekers to main (L/R), rear(surround) (L/R), center and sub woofer to terminal marked sub woofer ouput. this done select like i said before the 6 channel button. that should do it.
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.
Is Yamaha HTR-640 a receiver? Try HDMI from PS3 to receiver or Sony HDTV. If HDMI from PS3 to receiver the you need and HDMI from receiver to out Sony HDTV. You could connect everything to receiver and HDMI out to HDTV. You can not have an HDMI cable AND an optical cable coming out of the PS3, only one or the other.
If you know anything about testing IC's and transistors, you should not have a problem repairing this amp. I can tell you to look in the output section of the amp, and theres several things in there that can cause this. No boards to replace, only componets soldered into place. The correct way to trouble shoot this reciver would be to hook up some load resistors to where the speakers go. Then insert a 400 to 1000 hz signal at .775mv, then hook up a scope on the amp output or in differant stages to see where its clipping or breaking down. You may also be able to use a componet cooler or heater to make certain parts act up if they are intermittant. Remember though, if you have no training in electronics, your much better off taking the receiver to an expert repair depot or buying a new one, because you can't look at it and say theres the bad part unless its cooked.
