    try'd a DVD still only 2 speakers...if i could just see how my speakers should be hooked up that would help so much 5 surround + subwoofer and 2 bookshelf that i would like to use to play music...when i do the "test" in the basic set up all the speakers work...then when finished it always returns to 2 speakers when i transfered wires..i disconnected from the old receiver and then connected to the new...like i said before...i'm gonna start over but the speaker wire'n would really help thanx Linda

    I also can't get it to work in 5+1 and I am shure that the source has Dolby 5+1audio signal
    Only thing how I get it to work is when I put it to PURE DIRECT, then it decodes dolby correctly but I cant get picture out from it.
    I can't belive that it was ment to work this way???

Hi Linda,

It is showing two because the source of the sound that you are listening is probably stereo only thus only two sound comes out. You could try to change the mode to 5 channel stereo or prologic or dts-6channel mode in the surround mode to hear your sound in all 5 speakers. best thing to do is watch a dvd which would use all 5.

Regarding a/b yes if your receiver supports it which i think it does there should be place for it in the back of the receiver.

good luck

smeags.

Yamaha RX-V361 cuts off: check SP cable


Disconnect the speakers and turn on. If your receiver is ok, it will not go into protection "check spkrs" Then connect speakers, one by one, each time make sure the receiver is off, then turn it on. When you find the speaker that's causing the problem it will go into protection. At this time, disconnect the speaker at the speaker, then turn on again, if it still goes into protection, you have a speaker wire problem. If it stays on, you have a problem with the speaker. If you have a multimeter and know how to read it, check the impedance and the resistance. Check the internal workings of the speaker, bad surround from dryrot or smoked crossovers, etc. look for the obvious first. Hope this helps

Yamaha RX-V361 DVD cuts off w/ check SP cable message


This message means that speakers are not connected properly. What is their impedance? What is the impedance set on the receiver via Advanced Setup menu (see manual)? Check if it is not short-circuited.
Try the receiver without speakers connected. If the message goes away, receiver is OK and problem is in the connection to the speakers.

Surround sound from Sky +


To upmix 2-channel sound (such as that in a TV broadcast) into 5.1 sound, press AMP and then SUR. DECODE until "PL II Movie" is displayed. This will give you "cinema-like" surround sound from a 2-channel source.

You can also assign this to one of your "Scenes" by following the procedure for scene assignment on page 26 of your manual.
