How to set up surround sound

Not sure what you are looking for

But if 5 speaker setup have your front left and right speakers on the appropriate side of the television, your center speaker in the middle of the tv, Either mounted on the wall or underneath or on the shelf, try to have the center speaker set back from the front speakers. Subwoofer usually I mount behind the entertainment center. Your rear right and left speakers optimum position is behind you on the left and right.

If its a 7 speaker setup everything is the same except side right and left speakers go in the middle somewhere between the right and left front and rear speakers

I will make a example the the cursors [] Speaker *TV
LF[] CT and TV*[] RF[] []Subwoofer behind tv
SL[] []SR
LR[] RR[]

Hopefully that helps

I don't know how to hook up the speakers

hooking up speakers is easy you if your terminals are red and black you just match them up black on speaker means hook to black on the receiver doing a wrong hookup can reverse the phase of the speaker cause a distortion and eventual damage to speaker and coil.if you are rtunning just a stereo that allows two speakers select speaker you want for left side and put that on left of the stereo and hook it up as left and same for the right and if you have a home theater you hook it all up the same but you hook up the center put it in center front of the room as far back to wall as you can but dnt cover it up it should be lower than the front left and right or the main left and right speakers.then if the5re is surround you put those like say you have a square room you put them in the corners on the back wall.if you have rear speakers you put them on the back wall.make sure all speakers excepty rthe center are level and equal distance apart

I can not hear speaker called "LS". I've run new speaker wires with no results. Is it time for a new receiver?

Well if you can hear RS then take it to your local electronics repair store if warranty has expired. If you cant hear RS aswell then you might not have the right number of speaker's or speakers setup right. if you have 7.1 then you will have LS and RS speakers if it is 5.1 setup then then rear speaks have an option on most to be a rear (behind speakers) or rear (side speakers

If the problem started when you rewired the rear speakers I'd start there and evaluate the wiring. Take care to not touch the conductors together with power on.

Name the electronics and maybe we can help out on the settings.

Speaker set up question

I generally only use 2 tower speakers but the extra 2 could be used for rear or surround speakers. Set up your home theatre like a box. Use 2 towers at the front on either side of the TV. Your surround speakers should be in the middle ground (if your couch is in the center of the room, that means to the left and to the right of your couch). Your rear speakers should be similar to your front speakers, just behind you or a little off to the side. These inputs are clearly labelled on the back which is handy. The only thing you're missing is the center speaker, which goes right under the TV. I recommend getting one because this is the speaker that outputs most of the sound for speaking. The 606 has a really handy mic setup program, which I recommend using (it configures the volume for each speaker based on the distance from your seated position). I hope that helps you out!

Yamaha RX-V463 Receiver Speaker Setup

That receiver has A and B channels. Look for the Speaker button and press it until B appears on the diplay. The other room speakers will play the same thing as in the main room.

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.

I have just completed running the automatic speaker setup program 4 times. Each time it has given a warning message that two speakers have their wires reversed. I have checked the wiring terminals and...

Check both the phase and position of the speakers. Phase is that the speaker wires are positive is to positive and negative is to negative from the receiver to the speaker. Then check that the speakers are in the proper place in the room,( front left is in the front on the left side when facing the TV).
