Question about JVC RX-884V Receiver

1 Answer

Speaker settings Hi tech gurus and wizs... I've got audio working from front L and R speakers... but can't get the center speaker to work at the same time... changing the Surround settings has the center speaker working w/out the L and R speakers... trying to figure out how to have all three (C, L, and R) speakers working simultaneously. I've been messing for hours... suggestions? Which settings should I use for the audio to play in C, L, and R speakers? I'm using RCA from my Tivo (video goes directly from the Tivo to the TV, bypassing the JVC receiver).

Front speakers 5.1

Turn up the volume on the left or right speakers or turn down the center channel volume to meet your preferences. There should be a setting for that in most receivers.

Yamaha rx 530 center channel cuts out

Thanks for all the suggestions guys.

I've tried using the balance for left and right speakers, and when the receiver is acting up with the right speaker having a low volume, I tried moving the balance all the way over to the right speaker. The right speaker volume will not increase in volume but the left speaker will decrease in volume.

Just to clarify, the center and the rear speakers are balanced. The issue only happens sometimes when I first power on the receiver I will have no center channel. If I leave everything alone for a few mins, the center channel will come on.

So it seems to me that something one the receiver is going. The question is, can anyone suggest a physical repair for the receiver for these symptoms?

I have a yamaha RX-V461B AV receiver. I cannot get the the right front speaker channel to work. All the surround and center speakers work. Even when I run the speaker test, no static comes out from that...

There is no setting that would choose one front speaker to work differently than the other. The amp or something in the audio path within the receiver is failing.

Can't get the subwoofer to work when the fronts are set LARGE?

The manual implies that 'subwoofer=Yes' is independent of the rest of the speaker settings, but that it would be set AFTER selecting the other speaker configuration from the list of 11 possibilities.

My RX-V490 Amp. has no audio from Centre speaker.

Is your center mode set to "Phantom" instead of "Normal" or "Wide"? That would split the mono Center channel program and mix it equally with the programs for both front speakers so your brain would believe it's in the center.
