How can I get all 5 of my speakers to work with no remote???
Just trying to setup my surround sound. I have the manual but no remote. The manual says to select "reciever" then press the "@" or "#" button to select the option to play through all the speakers. Any way to do this with no remote.....Thanks

Most problems are menu settings, because surround modes can be complex and confusing. Verify what surround input type you are using. FM tuner will not play center spkr unless put into a simulate or expand stereo mode. Do other surround speakers work other than normal L/R stereo mode? You can try redoing your auto surround setup (MCACC) or going to the manual speaker setup and verifying speaker is turned on in menu system. Rechech you listening mode setups at Pages 33,38,39 in your manual. Try another speaker and wiring on center output. Try Different surround inputs, some manufactuers have had problems with their DTS and HDMI boards. Otherwise take to repair.
If everything is connected correct, the only thing I can think of, is you don't put in a surround signal. If you only feed 2 way stereo, only two speaker will work. Also if you switch to stereo, the other channels will stop working. Check the cables, the settings and the input.
Assuming that you mean Dolby digital 5.1, confirm that you have a center channel properly connected and perform the following;
Using the remote, enter the menu on the receiver and navigate to the selection labeled "LEVEL." Toggle through the selections until you reach the "CENTER CHANNEL". You will be able to use the remote to increase the volume of that channel in .5dB increments.
There are a few things required for the rear surround channels to operate;
1. The surround back channels must be enabled in the surround setup menu.
2. The media being played through the receiver must have audio encoded for the rear surround channels. There are only a few exceptions to this but I'll exclude the explanation for simplicity.
3. The audio level of the speaker channels must be set high enough to be audible.
Enter the surround setup menu with your remote. Use the center button on the remote to toggle through the selections, press down on it to enter the selection. You will navigate to a selection in the surround setup menu that says "surround back" or S/B with a selectable yes or no indication. Press on the center button to enable them.
Media like DVD or Blu-ray that has 6.1 or 7.1 channel audio has separate, or often referred to as "discrete" or "matrixed" audio intended for playback through surround rear speakers, depending on the music or movie. If your media is encoded for 5.1, then there will be no audio sent to these speakers. However, with the different modes of on-board digital processing of this receiver you can still have audio through these speakers.
Last but not least is the actual playing level of these rear surround channels. They may simply be adjusted to quietly. Enter the setup menu with remote, choose "level" and navigate to the rear surround channels. You can adjust the level up or down in 1/2 dB level increments by toggling left or right with the center button. Each surround channel can and should be adjusted independently and equally.
Check your "Setup" in the main menu of the receiver. Press "Menu" or "GUI" whichever you have on the remote and go to "Manual Setup" then toggle to "Audio" then "Speakers" then toggle to "Center Channel" and make sure it's on "Large" or "Small" instead of "None". If you still don't have audio, post a comment with the model # of your receiver, I'll pull the book and help you further. Hope this helps.
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.
You may also need to change the speaker set up. Go to DISC setting (one of the top selections on the remote) make sure you have no Disc in the DVD player. When in this mode press setup on the remote. On this menu you will have a option to adjust the speaker volume.
I had to increase my speaker volumes to get better sound. This setting is not accessible if you try to do the set up in other than DISC setting. Be sure to check the SURROUND setting. The SURROUND button on the remote will toggle between stereo and surround as stated in a previous post.
