Cant get rear speakers to Work AVR 745 7.2 Surround!!!

Hello all,

I am very frustrated... I have an avr 745 and have 7 speakers hooked up to it but only one sub. When i go to the source selector I can only get 5.1 surround modes and havent ever heard sound coming from the rear speakers.

I dont have the reciever hooked up to a TV just my computer and turntable. I would very much like to run the reciever at full capacity can someone help me achieve this?

    I have it again & now OSD is inop (7.1 for my system).

    Regarding your problem, are you using software version 4.16? Harman lists a 'reboot' if that doesn't work, a software
    reset of the microprocessor before going to a service center. Note, the processor reset erases all of your
    configuration settings (bummer).

Another way to solve this rear speakers problems is to go to the equalizer and have the system recognizes the sound coming out of all speakers. The AVR 745 comes with a microphone on the stick, using that to run the manual equalizer. It is the manual equalizer will set the rear speakers.

5ch/7ch stereo in 5 channel mode

Front panel button engaged for 5 or 7 channel operation? Also check front panel rear surround speakers button is engaged. Should get you back to 7.1 unless you have changed the rear surround speaker setup for a 2nd zone, also be sure you have a 7.1 DSP setting enabled.

Can n ot get rear surrround speakers to work

On this reciever you have rear surround and rear back spkrs, if your using the surr back they have to be assigned if unassigned in the settings. If using rear surr spkrs change your surr field to 5ch stereo and your rear speakers will work.
There is no 7.5 unless you have 5 subs the 7 is the total number of speakers and the .1 is the number of subs in the system

Speaker connection from Denon AVR 2105 to Wharfedale suround

The spkrs sound like they are bi-amp spkrs, meaning you have multiple terminals on the backs of each spkr, the jumpers on the spkrs should be connected as such. Now you just connect the spkrs according to the Denon spkr conection diagram. Do not use the surround back unless you have 6 or 7 pair of spkrs

Plug your rear 5.1 speakers into the surround speaker connections. Be sure to use the AVR 1908 set up menu to set rear speakers (not an amp assign). Hope this helps.

Denon AVR-2106 troubles

If the surround back is turned on,on the receiver,then the 7CH stereo will activate the 2 rear,but if it's off on the receiver the 5CH on the remote will do the same. I don't know much about the unit changing from 7CH to game,rock Arena etc.that i know will happen if u press the DSP simulation found @ the 3rd. top right button on the remote.
