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

This might somewhat help. Today I went back .. I went HDMI out of the Cable box and DVD player into 2 of the TVs HDMI ins. The digital audio out from each, straight to the receiver and things are working ok. All speakers are working OK. Sound isnt as loud or crisp but unfortunately I found no other solution.

Greg- Powered subs are better than non-powered subs (also known as passive subs), anyway I see the TX-8511 has no sub pre-out on the back panel, so you need to decide what sub you will use and run from the receivers left and right speakers output into a subwoofers speaker in from speakers then back out to speakers, look at the back of a subwoofer and you will see like 4 sets of speaker hookups 2 in and 2 out, what this does is takes the low end or bass and drops the signal to the subwoofer then takes the mids and highs out to your left and right speakers, unless your regular left and right stereo speakers have large woofers a sub is the way to go.

I had the very same problem tonight (no speaker setup menu (2)) and was about to do the reset as suggested by other poster... but then I noticed that the front of the amp was showing DIRECT just below the DD sign... this got me thinking that there must be a correlation between the DIRECT sound setting and the lack of speaker setup... (sound was only coming out of the FR and FL speakers - no surround and no Sub)
Essentially to fix this I had to review all my settings for the inputs and (iirc) the audio settings....
Long and short of it is that I was able to sort the problem without resorting to a full reset... I am a total newbie to all the AV amps and settings etc ... so am still playing with it so-to-speak
Hope this helps

You need to tell it you have surround speakers. Page 30.
