The calibration mic thing is to balance the sound evenly on surround sound systems, it replacles the older systems "TEST TONE" speaker setup, in other words it will balance each speaker say in a 5.1 setup to adjust the level output so the listening position is not overwhemled by say the rear surround speaker overriding the front left & right speaker or the most critical the center speaker. The calibration mic uses computer tech to make it easier for the user, no sound pressure calibration is needed as with the test tone setup mentioned earlier. The wireless speaker situation could be possibly waiting for the calibration confirmation, Read any user manual information if available.

No surrond, it wants me to connect calibration mic, what duse that mean. I put t all front on the speakers then thy all come on.


Usually the rear speakers dont have audio unless something goes from front to back. You could also try some of the different sound fields to get a simulated surround effect. Digital sources will give you the most accurate sound field. Try a bluray dvd player. Hope this helps.

Not all my speakers sound when using the audio in plug, all of them only work when using the mic caliber and when playing a movie.


Most inputs are not true 5.1 surround; with the exception of the mic and many movies. You will not have all of them working from, say an ipod or TV unless you choose a sound mode that mimics 5.1 or grater from a 2.1 source. These are modes like Pro Logic (1&2) and often "entertainment mode" or something simmilar that plays the sound out of all 6 channels.

Need to know is there is a input on the back of the sony davdx255 for the tv to recieve surround sound.


Does a TV NEED surround sound if you have a surround sound HIFI? Normal setero sound would probably suffice as the TV might not actually have electroics or speakers to do anything but mic\x it down to lo-fi stereo.

Correlary: You COULD just drag regular RCA audio out of your cable box to the TV if you want to watch the news or talk shows.

This reson you are not hearing any "TV AUDIO" through your RCA surround system would be due to your tv sound output not being connected to an audio input into your surround system. You can hear DVDs,CDs and radio possibly mp3 if connected, as these are built in to the amplifier which the speakers connect to.
If the tv has a Line out (via phono plugs) and NOT via headphone out, connect it to an audio input on the RCA surround system. If the RCA has no other available inputs, well....there ain't a lot you can do but watch CSI with the sound from the TV and then Star Wars (for example) through the TV and Surround system.
Best Of Luck

My yamaha did not come with the optomizer mic


You can, and the results might be better than not optimizing, but they might be worse.
The optimizing process listens for resonant frequencies in the room (what pitch "rings" longer in your room) as well as damped frequencies (what pitch sounds "dead" in your room)
To do this, it needs a mic that's matched to the unit.

Different mics have different frequency response curves, so your friend's mic might think (for example) that 2500hz is really hot, but the yamaha mic would think it's normal.

Certainly won't hurt to try, but if you don't like the way things sound after optimizing, then just reset your yamaha to the default EQ.

Calibration mic problems


I had the same symptom on a SONY DAV-DX375. The problem was I didn't have the mic plugged in far enough. The receptacle is very tight even though it is very tiny. Make sure to push plug in until the plastic part is against the front panel. It sounds obvious, but I was surprised how much force it took to seat the plug.
