Re: 4 speakers with games
For the rear surround speakers to work, the sound must be encoded in surround sound, and most games, if any, are not. The amp doesn't 'see' and information encoded in the sound signal for the rear speakers, therefore you get no sound.
Hope this helps, and please rate my advice.
Thank you, and good luck!!

I'm not familiar with your unit. However, this is normal, since the "sub" is encoded separately in movies. I have a separate sub for my front speakers. Or if you know what you're doing you can redirect the front signal to your sub by using a switcher when you're listening to cds, then switch back to surround when watching movies. But again, you have to be experienced in the principle of A/V configuration.
if you having this problem when playing music, this is perfectly normal 'cos music only gets played through 2 speakers (2.0 audio format)..if this happens when playing a movie, you have to check if the movie (through the disc menu) is in 5.1 audio format which is surround sound through all the speakers..
I have a avr 520 and had put it away for about 6 months to reno the theater room when it was done I hooked it all back up and it started to shut down. Not when the radio was on but when I was playing a blue ray movie after reading all the pages of info there was on this subject I went home and disconnected the speakers and sub and then played the movie with no sound for 30 minutes. Then hooked up one rear at a time let that run for 20 minutes each then the other rear. Restarted movie moved to sub then right front center then left front and it went off. Unhooked left speaker and it ran fine. ran new speaker wire to left front and it ran fine ran 2 full movies through it. The speaker wire I use is not cheap either 12 gauge 99 percent oxygen free wire. Somewhere in the reno it was snagged or pinched and was grounding out causing the unit to overheat and turn the unit off. Thanks everyone for their input that info help a lot. hopefully these helps someone
In a surround sound system, the correct way to listen to music is in stereo mode which will play out of your left and right channels and your subwoofer. When viewing a movie with surround sound, then you should use your rear speakers. The key element to remember is that rear speakers are only intended to play your sound effects, and will not play full range audio. Thats what your fronts and center are for. If you simply want to override this, than you will need to select the direct sound field on your receiver and than it will send full range audio to all speakers connected. Most likely, its not going to sound that good. If you dont know what each sound field does, here is a list and function of the most commonly used ones.
Stereo-Front Left and Right speakers including subwoofer
Dolby Digital or PLII Movie-these are the bost options for your surround sound
Direct-All speakers connected get full range signal
THe rear speakers are usually for the surround sound experience. What kind of movies do you watch? Usually the action movies have a lot of surround sound, calm movies not so much. And for the music, the same thing applies. Atleast for my system.
Look on your manual, page E16. Go into your speaker setup. Select your speakers (Front,C,Surround, Sub) and make sure each are selected as "small" (make sure you go through each one). If the surrounds are selected as "none" the rear will not activate and will light up as red on the display. Let me know if this helps.
Select different modes on the remote or front panel and make sure all speaker that you have hooked up are showing on display. Are the Lt & Rt channels at least playing audio? If you want, i can step you thur some steps to try in live chat if you want today. Let me know as i have experience in this area! Sincerely Guru Jay
My connection dropped for a second and lost you on the live session. Thereafter I keep on getting errors.
In any case, have you tried: 1. disabling the built-in sound in your CMOS/BIOS? 2. Verify that your Creative drivers are all installed correctly with no red or yellow marks in your Device Manager under Sound, video and game controllers; 3. Are all the connectors/plugs wired to the right jacks. Iknow the sub operates wirelessly but all others are still wired.
Post back pls how things are so we can figure other things out.
