Question about Pioneer VSX-918V Receiver
My pioneer reciever will not play all 5 of my surround sound speakers. It only allows 2 channels at a time, these 2 channels are the left and right front speakers, the center and two back speakers will not produce any sound at all. I know that my speakers are working because they were fine with my last reciever.
Same problem here--I set up the system, all 5 speakers work just fine during the MCACCC setup, but nothing but fronts and subwoofers work with my Blu-Ray, iPod, FM, TV. I tried playing with the modes forever, using the remote and the front panel buttons.
Gettin' a little frustrated here.
If the amplifier is not receiving a surround sound signal, you will get nothing from the rear speakers and probably nothing from the front centre. Play a dvd in dolby surround and it will work.

1. make sure you are sending a 5.1 signal to the receiver (my DVD player was configured to only send stereo even if I picked the 5.1 soundtrack, i had to fix that). Read the manual to see the indicator lights that would light up if you are sending a DTS signal or Dolby Digital.
2. Use the 'surround modes' to at least get pseudo surround

Possible solution: You set up your remote to run your amp from the TV control, using the AQUOS Link. Even though your amp is out of the loop, it's still recognized by the TV. You might have to reset the TV back to default and run the AQUOS Link again.

I'd run this by ATT.
If the audio output digital feed is strong enough for the receiver to accept it then the actual audio on the digital carrier is probably the problem. If there is a coaxial output on the cable box, I'd try that, too, to isolate the optical and HDMI as the problem or not.
Or shoot the cable audio into the place your Blu-Ray is connected to prove if it works the same or different.
