7.1 Reciever vs 5.1 Speakers

I am in the market for a new reciever with HDMI passthrough. Most of these recievers are 6.1 or 7.1 channel recievers. Can I connect my 5.1 Bose speakers to a 7.1 channel receiver? Will I miss audio, that is split out to the 2 additional channels?

Are you gonna miss audio, well that is up to you, this is individual. 7.1 has two additional speakers - center left & right. My personal opinion is that it matters when you have your system installed in large space. Or you can by another two speakers an ad it. Good luck

When watching cable tv we are not getting any sound from the speakers. We do get sound from all the speakers when watching a dvd or listen to the stereo. I have a Yamaha HTR 5660 receiver. All the cables...


Your best bet is to hook all your video components directly to TV, using your TV's menu to choose what you want to watch, and then hooking reciever to TV via digital optical out from TV to digital optical in on reciever. From what I read, your reciever has 6 digital optical inputs. Anyway, try running, at least, your cable box to TV, best by HDMI, the run digital optical out to reciever. Make sure you go throught he recievers menu to make sure you have he right channel selected for audio.

Does reciever support hdmi and does it matter the blu ray is 7.1 and reciever is 5.1


I couldn't tell you if the model supports hdmi, apart from saying if it has got an hdmi socket it should (in theory). But I can say that if you want full 7.1 sound then though your blu ray can play them back (movies) in that sound, you won't hear them in that. It depends, if you want to experiance the full 7.1 sound, then you need a new amp and the two extra speakers.

How do I get my Panasonic sa-pt670 to play all the speaker. watching tv and with ps3


Does you Tv set have optical out? If so might I suggest running HDMI into your television set from the PS3, then run an optical audio line out from the tv into the optical line in on your HTIB

No audio from pc connected using hdmi


Are you not getting audio to the television speakers and the onkyo reciever speakers when connected HDMI thru the reciever or just the television. If it is just thru the television then it is because the reciever is grabbing the HDMI audio signal and converting it so it does not reach the TV. If it is both then try changing the HDMI signal output from PCM to DOLBY DIGITAL on the computer. Your reciever may not be able to process the PCM signal of the computer. Does the reciever show a PCM or DOBLY DIGITAL display when HDMI is hooked up to it?

XBox 360 to Reciever to TV via HDMI no sound


I recently got the same receiver and had the same problem. Here's what I was told - and it worked for me:

Even though HDMI cables carry audio and video, for whatever reason this reciever won't accept audio through hdmi. Apparently only much more expensive recievers carry audio through hdmi. What you have to do is run optical audio cables from your xbox, cable box, dvd player or other video device to the optical inputs on the back of the reciver. Then you customize the scene buttons to match your video and audio inputs.

You can get these optical cables pretty cheap on line or even at target. Don't get ripped off by Best Buy for these cables. I love best buy, but they rip off on cables!

This receiver is great - once I got it all figured out and running right I've loved it! Hope everything works out for you!

Reciever only allows 2 channels(speakers) at a time.


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.

I have a new Denon 688 7.1 CH reciever. I did a sound test on all speakers and they all worked. I hooked up Satelite rec HDMI and PS3 HDMI to reciever and then an HDMI from reciever to TV. I have Picture...


The Denon 688 does not process sound via HDMI, you have to run a seperate cable to get sound. Choices are analog audio jacks (red and white) or either a toslink (optical) cable or an rca digital audio cable.

Cheers!
