Occassionally I get no sound from my surround right channel. It works for months at a time and then stops for months at a time. It doesn't matter what input I am using (haven't tried direct input channels). When it isn't working, the static builds in volume until it pops and then goes quiet. It repeats until I shut off the unit for the day or unplug the speaker. I have tried changing speakers and even houses and couldn't lose the problem.
I'm not sure how to diagnos if the channel was always dead, and it is even harder to troubleshoot when it isn't broke.

Surround Sound System Settings ---- Correct Time Delay Setting in Multi-channel Audio
A correctly set surround sound system can yield dramatic improvements to your home theater sound or multi-channel music listening experience. In particular, a correctly set time delay setting between the different channels is essential for a realistic and unified surround soundfield. Luckily, most of today's surround processors make setting the time delays between the rear and the fronts a matter of a few entries in the setup menu. Yet having a proper understanding of the principles behind correct time delay settings is essential for the best results. In this guide, we explain the principles behind time delay settings in surround sound and show you how to adjust your surround processor or AV receiver for the best surround sound field.
Time Delay Setting in Multi-channel Surround Sound Systems
Correct home theater speaker placement and properly balanced sound levels between the different channels in multi-channel audio, while crucial, are not enough to sustain a unified soundfield in a surround sound setup. A correctly set surround sound system requires that sound from all the different speakers reach the listener at exactly the same instant. This explains why all fronts, left, right and center channel speakers, should be set at exactly the same distance from the listening position. At the same time, in a typical home theater setup, the surround speakers are closer to the viewer than the fronts.
To compensate for this distance discrepancy, surround sound playback systems apply a split-second delay to the surround sound channels. ----------------------------
You have to configure it first. Make sure you follow the instructions on page 5 of your manual to run Auto MCACC Setup which tests the acoustics of your room, speaker size, power level, etc. This is necessary before it will enable you to use surround sound.
6.1 stands for six speakers and one sub-woofer - a total of seven actual speakers giving you the surround sound effect. Before it can play a surround sound environment, the media - a CD or DVD must have it encoded on the disc, like a movie that has 6.1 surround sound recorded on it or a music CD with recorded surround sound. Otherwise, it will just play stereo audio - two speakers and the others are redundant. And yes, it does sound better as if you are in the actual area it was produced - like if you were there.
I had this problem too. Finally, after using the MCACC setup and making sure all the speakers worked, I found I had to set the source to FM, TV or whatever from the remote control and set the mode to advanced surround sound using the front panal button on the upper right. Had to fool with them a lot. Good luck.
the problem you have seems to be on programing the master effects to get to it go to main menu and see the distribution and effects you want to hear on you home theather.remember that home surround needs some decoders to send the sound where the images come and its right built in....
