Question about Onkyo TX-SR500 Receiver
I just purchaced a used Onkyo TX-SR500 Recevier. I connected 5 speakers, front R&L, surround R&L, a center, no sub), a dvd player and my high-def 5.1 surround cable box to it. The Onkyo only is producing sound in the front and center speakers, not in the rear channels. The display shows "Dolby D 3/2.1" when I press dispay, even though I know the sources I am using are Dolby Digital 5.1. When I do the speaker test I do get sound out of all 5 speakers. Any ideas? Thanks all!
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. Radiotech
