Question about JVC RX-D301S Receiver
I have the same problem with my Rx-D301 except I can't even get anything out of the surround speakers even in the test mode. Only L & R channels. Have you figured out a solution for your posted problem? I'm beginning to think I've got a defective one.
SOURCE: Rear Surround speakers
Best thing to do is to put the unit in 5 channel or 7 channel mode. That will send left ch information to the front left and rear left speakers ( both will get the same information). Ditto with the right channel. The center channel will get centre channel information.
If all the speakers work, go out and rent TOP GUN. ( yes its old), BUT there are a few extreme scenes , one of which is the elevator scene, where the camera changes perspective and suddenly you hear the elevator doors close BEHIND you through only the surround speakers ( have the unit in surround mode....NOT 5 or 7 ch mode ). If this works ok, then you have no problems.
Remember, surround sound only produces information in the rear channels when the information is there. To check out the digital and DTS decoders, get an action flick. If you can, get a remote too, because that will unlock many features about the receiver that you cant get to with the front panel controls. Also go to yamaha and download the owners manual ( its free !!).....that should get you going.....
best of luck...

SOURCE: PS3 with this receiver.
I dont know your reciver but if it has a hdmi input plug ps3 into it and set audio on ps3 to pcm,this will give you digital surround eg multichannel,if not you must use a optical cable from ps3 to reciver and set ps3 audio to digital.
hope this helps.

On the unit, just left of the volume control there a "adjust setting", cycle through the modes until you SUBWOOFFER and then press CONTROL UP or DOWN to make it say YES. I have no idea how it switched to NO. Probably with my remote, but some time did pass and I'm happy I got my Bass back. Quantum of Solace sounds great.

All you need is either a dock, which will keep the I-Pod powered up, or a 3.5mm plug to two RCA phono leads, which will also be needed for the dock, this plugs into your headphone socket of your I-Pod and the two RCA's into an aux socket on the JVC. You can then listen to it in Dolby Pro-Logic. You won't be able to listen in Dolby Digital, unless the I-Pod has Dolby Digital output, which will require a different lead.
Of course the sound source (music) would have to be recorded with Dolby Surround, to get the full benefit, but many are, they just don't say in the imformation given.

I'd suspect one of the controls that would be overriden by analog direct is unknowingly activated. LOOK at the front panel and interpret every indicator for how it could cause silence. Refer to the manual for those you don't understand.
Any Tape Monitor activation would disable digital sources completely.
See page 14 for how Line Direct affects DSP modes.
