Question about Onkyo Audio Players & Recorders
You get sound out of the center speaker depending on what you have connected to the receiver and with what cables, what type of signal is being fed to the receiver, and what settings are available on whatever is connected to the receiver.
Let me paint you a picture. You can connect a television to an Xbox with an hdmi cable. Then you connect the Onkyo to the television with a fiber optic cable. The sound coming from the television depending on the television--the signal that is being fed to the receiver is normally "watered down" and therefore you will not get sound out of more than two of your speakers. If you connect the Xbox or whatever to the receiver directly with a fiber optic cable or even better if you have hdmi outputs on your device and connect it to the receiver with an hdmi cable AND you have the device set to output bitstream audio THEN you will be able to get sound out of all of your speakers depending on what the device is outputting i.e. dolby 5.1, 7.1, true hd and etc.
