Question about Pioneer VSX-D308 Receiver
Can't seem to turn up front speaker channel only rear and surround sound seem to turn up and center works as well.
Did you use to be able to turn up the front levels and now you can't?
Or is it the first time you have installed it?
If it previously did then clearly there is a fault.
However if not. Then like many receivers the front volume is simply controlled by the main volume control. If this is the case then you need to adjust the other channels to give you the best sound. The best way to do this is get one of those THX DVD discs. On the menu to the disc you will find a setting for setting up the sound THX screen. It will produce a test tone for each speaker. You then adjust it for the best sound quality. This way the sound field will sound great for your living room and Dolby movies will have you jumping out of your seat when an unexpected sound appears on the left channel and voices won't get drowned out by noises from the back.

Be sure the sound source has a center channel output ie. not a 2 channel source only, try the test tone setup for 5 or 6 channel balance, if no sound from the center channel still then it is looking like maybe the center channel is blown.

1. make sure you are sending a 5.1 signal to the receiver (my DVD player was configured to only send stereo even if I picked the 5.1 soundtrack, i had to fix that). Read the manual to see the indicator lights that would light up if you are sending a DTS signal or Dolby Digital.
2. Use the 'surround modes' to at least get pseudo surround
