All settings in speaker setup.ive played transformers dolby atmos. the sound is brilliant ,but cant get anything out off atmos speakers whitch ive got at front near front speakers.ive also done room calibration
The other part of the equation is your source; which is not mentioned in your question.
Your player must also be able to decode Dolby TrueHD and the audio output on it set to Bitstream.

SOURCE: no surround sound
So your saying that you have no rear channel. Some recivers use a single stereo output ic for both sides on the rear speakers. you could have a defect with this IC . Anther thing Im sure you check3ed the obvious ie : the switch is on suround sound? If there is a front to rear fader is it in the middle? Good Luck

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

it is highly likely that you're TV is outputting mono sound, hence the left channel only. check your physical connections to the TV and the balance / channel volume on the television as well.

I have the Samsung 61" DLP HDTV and the Samsung Blu-ray BD-P1500 and the Onkyo HT-R500 receiver. I have the TV connected via HDMI (HDMI 3/DVI) to my HD DVR from my cable company and the Blu-ray player connected to the TV as well (HDMI 1). I have a fiber optic connection from the receiver to the Blu-ray (since the P1500) does not have digial coax ouput for connection to the receiver. With Speaker A button pushed, and all my speakers are wired, the only sound I get from my 5.1 channel system is static from the front right and front left speakers so I know there is a connection. When I try to listen to the DVD Player (which was working without the receiver as a Stereo only-mode), I had sound but now that the 5.1 channel system is connected, there's no sound while watching a DVD nor can I hear anything with my CD Player which is connected with standard red/white RCA cables.
Any advice on how to get the sound or what "settings" I am missing?

I have the same reciever, and had the same problem. Contact Onkyo, this is a known issue where defective DSP chips were used and manifest problems with a popping / clicking sound when using surround settings. These receivers also have a Dolby Digital input issue that can cause audio dropouts when watching cable or SAT broadcasts that encode DD using a 'newer' broadcast encoding methods. Onkyo is covering the cost of that repair for me now, even though the receiver is 5 years old now....
