The signal that comes from most tv's via the optical output is a stereo signal only. That is what your receiver is reading. You would have to manually set your receiver to decode the signal into surround,.
How to reset yamaha HTR-5650 AV receiver (maybe others) to factory default settings:
1. turn power off. 2. press the 6ch input and stereo button simultaneously for 4 seconds. Then while holding down these 2 buttons, turn the power on. 3. press preset tuning to the right until option #9 is selected. 4. Then, press program button until the *RV option is selected. 5. turn power off, wait 10 seconds. 6. turn power on, settings are reset.
Please don't panic and think that there is anything wrong with your Yamaha receiver. A lot of people are having this problem with set top box reception. Time lag / phase differences caused by satellite transmission can make your Receivers digital decoders go nuts !!!.The working principal is too complex to explain on this page. I have had clients call up and say on some channels only one speaker works in a 5.1 setup !!!!.You noticed DD and DTS signals are working fine.
1 Hold down STEREO on the Front Panel
"Factory Preset" appears on the front panel
2 Press STEREO to select the desired setting.
'Reset' To reset to factory presets
'Cancel' to cancel without making changes
3 Press STANDBY/ON to confirm your selection
If the amp is out of warrenty period, open it up and follow the path from the mute channel on the circuit board. You should see if the capasitors on that path is done(Blown). You can fix this yourself if you know how, otherwise take it to a repair shop will be a cheap fix.
Otherwize check the ic on that channel. Hope this an help you.
You may need to enable the fixed audio output line level from the TV. Some TV`s require you to enter the AUDIO menu/setup selection on the TV remote controller, and then enable the AUDIO OUTPUT Jacks, this will turn off the TV built in speakers and engage the audio RCA Jacks.
Did you try going thru the setup portion of the owners manual? IF you need the manual you can get it online free. I realize sometimes people read the manuals and don't understand the technical jargon. Let me know if you need further assistance thur chat session and i can possibly step you thru it better in real time. Good luck Guru Jay
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
