using the Y adapter method (i am guessing you are using just a single stereo mini-jack cable with a mini-jack to RCA adapter) you are only sending a standard Stereo signal to the receiver. Setting 5.1 in windows is just simulating (if using Stereo) or actually mixing 5.1 if you are using analog 5.1 (3 stereo mini-jack cables going to 3 mini-jack to RCA adapters using a 6 channel DVD input). if you have a surround sound audio card i suggest using the Analog 6 channel input by using 3 stereo cables each with their only adapter.
or, if you have a Digital output (Coaxial or TOSlink [optical]) try using that.

Make sure that your sound aka dvd or whatever is set for a DTS (5.1) set your dvd at bitstreem and your receiver to automatic detection. When your movie will start you will heard your Receiver Relay//Mosfet clicking and a Red led will say DTS once you get there you will be able to select your Doldy digital surround the real one.
Ps: if you want to reset your VR-309 to default HOLD the POWER button for 5 sec unplug it from the wall hold it for 5sec while unplugged and replug it will be rested to default.

The problem is not likely to be the switch itself. The unit is rpobably going into "protect" mode because of a problem internally. Try removing all the cables and try to turn on the unit. If the behavior remains the same, the output section requires repair. The most common failure is the output transistors. Expect a parts cost in the $40-$60 range.

You have a component (probably a transistor) that is overheating, or possibly a capacitor going bad. The circuit board will have to be troubleshot, and the bad component identified. Fortunately, heat problems can be figured out by buying some Freeze Spray (Freon), and when the unit acts up, you spray suspected components, slowly...until it works again. This will identify which component you need to replace by unsoldering, etc. I would start in the power supply area, if you can identify it...chances are that's where your problem is. Good luck, hope this helps.
