I had recently bought an onkyo TX-SR576 7.1 receiver and have hooked up to Accusound 5.1 speakers, I run the audio setup using the Mic provided and it detects the front right then Centre then front left after that it detects the rear left then shows spk err unable to detect speaker, so I tried to do the manual setup and I can hear the speaker when I try and set the DB levels for output because it sends a kind of wave noise out. So I am convinced that sound is going out but the Mic cannot setup the speaker and when I watch movies using component Its that 1 Channel the right rear that I cannot hear. Rest all is fine...Please Help
PS: just to be sure that it wasnt a speaker issue I even interchanged the speaker outs and it works. I m not using any surround speakers at the moment. Please help
Have the same amp and speakers, had some trouble getting the imput signals sorted from the HDMI input as im using a PC with HDMI output from the mother board and Windows Media Centre. havent tryed using the mic set up yet.

This is a problem of DSP. If enter service mode, You will see a picture like this. You can do nothing Except selling this amp cheaply. This DSP ?????? Causes NO SOUND in all channels. Besides, never Buy 2nd hand onkyo from 5/6/7/805 to 5/6/7/848Series amps. You will suffer the consequences!!!!
Well,i will be the judge of that.Please tell me how do you have your system hook up?Be details...ex. TV connected to receiver with HDMI cable..DVD player connected to receiver... What component that you are having trouble with the rear speakers?EX. dvd player?Directv box?Both? solutiondoct
First off, I would like to say congrats on the receiver purchase - it's a nice one. To get true 7.1 surround sound, you will have to run another wire to another speaker. Any of these listening modes that you want to get are most likely using the capabilities of these 7 speakers. If you were to hook up one speaker to the two rear surround channels, you would be defeating the purposes of having that extra "speaker" and not really be gaining anything. If you really do want to access the 7.1 listening modes, you could always hook up another speaker and just hide it behind your TV, depending on your setup (essentially tuck it in a place where it wouldn't be heard, close to the receiver so that you don't need a long wire run).
In answer to your specific question, there would be ways of doing this, but just not all that advisable - you'd be posing a hazard to your speaker and/or the receiver. Like I mentioned, I'd recommend going through the trouble of running another wire and hooking up an additional speaker for the rear surround. If you're going to be using a Bluray or HD-DVD player, it'll be worth it. Hopefully this helps to somewhat answer your question.
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.
