    im looking now for you what you need to do is turn the surround sound on as it looks like it is just in stereo sound mode bare with me foe few minutes ok

  • paul proctor Feb 05, 2008

    Hi What you need to do is enter setup mode then goto audio setup then in this menu select suround sound or 5.1 or 6.1.
    If you dont have this menu option on your model then its going to be on a button on cotroll you will either have an audio buton try pressing this whilst playing a film or you might have a different button depending on your model it might have a button with a circle and half circle on the button press this this should then tell you what sound mode your in keep pressing untill you get the surround sound option.
    If you still have the manual it will be in their just look under the remote section as it will tell you what the surround sound button is. ive tried looking for your manual online and cant find one but ill look again if this has given you no help just let me know ok ill look now again for you ok

  • paul proctor Feb 05, 2008

    im still looking for manual cant find one anywhere have you got yours or not do you have an audio button.
    When you enter audio setup and the first menu speaker setup is this where they are greyed out tell me if im wrong.
    The next menu whats under dolby digital setup whats listed under this menu.
    Also under equalizer does this only cover the bass and treble or is their option in their other than these im asking this as im struggling to find manual whilst waiting for answer ill look again

  • paul proctor Feb 05, 2008

Hi there

when playing radio, the rear speakers do work because you have configured that. in your dvd player however, you may not have configured it yet.

Correctly insert the jacks at the back of the dvd player and at the same time, check the menu of your dvd player and check the audio settings. Under the audio settings of your dvd player menu, select the 5.1 or 6.1 audio profile.

hope this helps.

    be sure also that the dvd/cd youve insert supports the type of audio setup you want it to. because some dvd formats does not have surround sound but only stereo sounds.

    under audio setup, i have speaker setup,dolby digital setup,channel delay,channel trim,equalizer





    hi larry12



    youve mention here that under audio setup, you can see "speaker setup,dolby digital setup."



    heres what you can do,



    under the speaker setup, be sure that you pre selected stereo as this will determine the sound quality of your shows.



    under dolby, look for any settings there that requires you to identify surround sound which has a rear speakers, mid...etc..



    in essense, all you need to do is identify which audio setup you want to use since you already have a surround sound hardware. the only thing thats left is to manually setup the surround sound settings which you can do in audio settings.



    so just try and try because its all there.



    hope this helps. :)

I have a sony STR-DE897 and my rear speakers dont get sound when plugged into the surround back ports..Is there a certain setting in order for the rear surround spreakers to work? or does that mean the...


There are a few things required for the rear surround channels to operate;

1. The surround back channels must be enabled in the surround setup menu.

2. The media being played through the receiver must have audio encoded for the rear surround
channels. There are only a few exceptions to this but I'll exclude the explanation for simplicity.

3. The audio level of the speaker channels must be set high enough to be audible.


Enter the surround setup menu with your remote. Use the center button on the remote to toggle through the selections, press down on it to enter the selection.
You will navigate to a selection in the surround setup menu that says "surround back" or S/B with a selectable yes or no indication. Press on the center button to enable them.

Media like DVD or Blu-ray that has 6.1 or 7.1 channel audio has separate, or often referred to as "discrete" or "matrixed" audio intended for playback through surround rear speakers, depending on the music or movie. If your media is encoded for 5.1, then there will be no audio sent to these speakers. However, with the different modes of on-board digital processing of this receiver you can still have audio through these speakers.

Last but not least is the actual playing level of these rear surround channels. They may simply be adjusted to quietly. Enter the setup menu with remote, choose "level" and navigate to the rear surround channels. You can adjust the level up or down in 1/2 dB level increments by toggling left or right with the center button. Each surround channel can and should be adjusted independently and equally.
