Re: 2.1 to 5.1

First, stop the DVD that is playing.  Pausing it wont work, you must press "Stop", then you can switch from 2.1 to 5.1 or back.

My sound on Onkyo HT R 548 stopped working

If this is a Surround Sound System you can check channel and audio tone levels using the remote. Check remote for a receiver button followed by Test button. Check manual for test instructions.

I can't control the HT-C6530 unit with the remote. The remote is controlling the TV instead of the samsung HTS and i can't seem to switch it back. Seems to be something to do with the BDReceiver/TV button...

press bd receiver / tv button to select the remote for any one. u can use the same remote for tv and blue ray receiver. when u want to control blue ray with the remote, select remote for the same by pressing bd receiver / tv button and wise versa.

YAMAHA AV receiver RX-V861 I have the message 'Vol-fix' appearing on Zone 2 and no sound. This was working fine until then

Setting the RX-V861 remote control to operate Zone 2:
  1. Using a ballpoint pen or similar object and press the [CODE SET] button RX-V861 remote control. The[TRANSMIT INDICATOR]on the remote should flash twice.
  2. Using the [NUMERICAL KEY PAD] on the remote and key in 9992, the [TRANSMIT INDICATOR] should flash.
Assigning the receivers internal amp for Zone 2:
  1. Set the remote control selector to [AMP]. (Located to the right of the volume buttons on the Remote.).
  2. Press the [SET MENU]button on the remote control.
  3. Arrow down to Manual Setup and press the Enter button on the remote control.
  4. Arrow to the [SOUND MENU] option and press the [ENTER] button on the remote control.
  5. Arrow to Speaker Set and press the [ENTER] button on the remote control.
  6. Arrow to the EXTRA SP ASSIGN and select ZONE2
  7. Press the [RETURN] button on the remote control to exit out and return to the Manual Setup.
NOTES: There is an option for setting the Maximum Volume and Initial Volume in the Zone Set menu.
  • Max Volume: This is an optional feature but isrecommended to prevent the accidental change in volume levels thatcould damage the speakers and receiver.
  • Initial Volume: This is also a great feature that would seamlessly start the volume level for the second or third zone at the desired level.
We do not recommend using any Speaker Selector boxes to enable more than the recommended number of speakers per terminal.
Controlling Zone 2 using the RX-V861 remote control:
  1. If the Main Zone on the receiver is on, press the [POWER BUTTON]down and while holding that button down press the [PHONO]/[**] button on the remote. The [TRANSMIT INDICATOR] will light up.
  2. You will not be able to use the following buttons on the remote: (Pressing any other button will cause the remote to exit Zone 2 mode. [POWER], [STANDBY], [VOLUME], [MUTE] and the [INPUT SELECTOR] buttons [DVD], [CD], etc.)

There are the instructions as written straight from yamaha. If you need any further assistance please let me know.
Thank you,

HTS9800 Wireless receiver not working

I have just bought one of these today and have had the exact same problem. No rear sound and no blue light on the receiver box.

What philips don't tell you in the manual and on the support site is that the receiver box has a switch hidden under a white sticker; next to the left of the right speaker connection. The switch has 3 positions which can be selected. I had tried each switch position and power cycled the subwoofer each time until eventually i got a blue light on the receiver box.

You may also need to select the correct channel on the control box by pressing the "sound" button for 5 seconds on the remote control.

It took me quite a while to try the different combinations until it finally worked. I can't imagine that Philips would have sent the system out without testing the wireless partnership first, so I am guessing my wireless network could have had something to do with it. (forever the optimist).

I did expect the subwoofer standby light to have gone off or changed colour once operational, but this just seems to stay on no matter what state it is in.

The first step is to make sure that all of your speakers are functioning properly and are wired in the correct place. To do this, turn on your TV and receiver, and hit "SETUP" on your remote. Step down and select "Audio" from the list on the left, and select "5.1 Speaker Setup" from the menu on the right. Scroll down to "TEST" and step through each speaker using the right and left arrow keys on your remote, ensuring that each speaker is functioning properly. Exit out of the "SETUP" menu when finished.

Now, when you have a source that you would like to hear on 5.1 channels, but is encoded in 2.1, hit the "SOUND" button on your remote until "PL II MOVIE" or "PL II MUSIC" is displayed on your screen. This stands for Dolby Pro Logic II, and is the way that your receiver multiplexes a 2-channel signal.
