Speaker setup without a remote

To my dismay, my remote control has broken and I am strugling to get a replacement. As I am trying to set up my speaker distnces on the amp, how can I set this up without a remote control? Aditionally, how can get a replacement remote, as a local retail store in South Africa stated to me that they cannot get such a remote anymore.

Receiver channel volume not identical

Remote controls normally do not adjust stereo volume levels independently, and I will assume that the problem is present on ALL input settings (tuner, CD, etc.). Check "balance" control settings, speakers and speaker wires for possible problems. Balance control at 12:00? Inspecting speaker wires and speakers do not reveal problems? Have you swapped speakers to see if problem reverses? Try this "process of elimination" and hopefully you'll ID the problem.

No surround sound on rear speakers and cant access speaker set up functions. left front channel not working when rears set up without surround

from the problem description, it sounds like a wiring/setup problem with the speakers. check to make sure you are only using the main 'a' front r & l speaker connectors. if you select speaker set a + b on the front, you will not have the rear channels. please see the speaker connection guidelines in the manual on page 13-15. make sure the audessey mike and/or headphones are not plugged in when trying to use the speaker set up function.

Hi, I have a Denon AVR-1709 & recently set up Zone 2 to operate my outdoor speakers via AMP Assign. The system is working but I''m only getting limited volume through the outdoor spears and the...

My onkyo reciever working very well but last 2 days subwoofer out put off from receiver .... subwoofer is ok

Hi, If you have remote to receiver try hitting the speaker setup selection. I am thinking perhaps a speaker setting was inadvertantly taqmpered with. In speaker settings you will have such things as distance setting-speaker size-delay etc..then you should come to a selection for whether or not a subwoofer is used ie: subwoofer : on, off.. I hope this has been of some use and thank you for choosing FixYa,Good luck, Prodzilla

I have a Yamaha RX V665 and I am unable to change the volume

The volume keys should be working by default, but you may have volume punch through turned on (meaning the remote is sending signals for TV or CABLE volume function no matter what mode you are actually on). To unlock volume control for AUX mode, do the following:
1. Press and release AUX
2. Press and hold SETUP until the remote blinks twice
3. Type 993
4. Press and release VOL-
The remote should blink four times to confirm unlock.

How do I use the remote to cont bass & treble for rxv-657 reeiver

No, Tone controls are on the front of the unit only. If your passing video thru the unit you can go into the setup menu from the harmony and adjust all the sound parameters that way "on screen" The only "EQ" capabilities are for the Center channel only. You can adjust "speaker size". "Large" setting will give you a little lower response. "Small" will crossover the speaker at "100hz" That's about as far as tone adjustment goes on this unit. Hope this helps

Trying to hook up Zone B stereo speakers in two additional rooms.

The infrared mentioned by the manual is most likely an extension possibility to use the remote control in each room, forget that part.
What you need to do is quite simpel, after connecting all speakers, you should indicate in the setup menu of each zone which speakers are connected and do as follows:
in main room select 5.1 setup, for the other zone select only the left and right front speakers.
Your EXTRA SP indicates the extra speakers for 7.1 setup and when set to zone B it recognises only 1 speaker.

So read carefully the manual how to connect Zone 2 speakers and connect that way, than carefully walk through the setup menu to setup the zone 2 correctly.
