RX-D301 Surround problem

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.

SOURCE: Digital surround mode not putting out bass-RX-6022V

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.

SOURCE: can i plug in my i-pod and listen to it?

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.

SOURCE: Jvc RX 8020 receiver won't

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.

Can't get my center spkr.to work on my jvc rx 807v receiver


Make sure the speaker is good by connecting it to a known good working site. If speaker is good, make sure it is properly connected to center speaker terminals. Then if it is a surround receiver make sure that the sound mode is one where the middle channel works such as 5.1 DTS, etc. If the center channel still does not work then the problem lies with the decoder chip that is not working properly and sending the center channel info to that specific amplifier.

you don't need a remote. to me sounds like you might have a connection problem. try and do a test tone which will send a test signal to all the speakers. starts from left to right etc. if you cant hear all the speakers you need to check all connection wires etc. hope this helps

Speakers not playing


The problem can be the cable or speakers or RX-V463 or settings. Need to check one by one.
Set the RX-V on DTS or Dolby Digital
1) Check Cables - connect the 2 (surround) cables from RXV's Centre Out to Centre speaker. If the Centre speaker works, then cables are ok.
2) Check speakers - Connect each Surround speaker to RXV's Centre out. If it works Speakers are ok.
3) Check RXV - Set it on DTS or Dolby Digital
Connect RXV's surround out (one at a time) L and R to the Centre speaker. If there is no sound, the problem could be RXV's settings (I need to read the manual).

Hope this helps.

I imagine your FM and any other sources suffer from the same lack of a front speaker function.

Page 43: "Press the A Speakers on the front panel repeatedly to turn on or off the set of front speakers...."

I have a Yamaha RX - V665 and the right rear surround works only part of the time.


Start by using an old test speaker and connect it directly to the right surround output with a short wire and monitor it.

If it sems to work with no issues, you either have a bad connection at receiver or speaker, or a break in the speaker wire somewhere.

If you have the same problem with the test speaker, you have a rgt. rear output issue in the receiver and it needs repair.

Hope this helps

My surround sound speakers don't work. No power


LCD will display which speakers are active. And this depends on 2 things: the source signal and decoder mode.
If source signal is stereo, only front L+R speakers are used. For 5.1 signal (for example DVD over HDMI / optical/coax spdif) all speakers installed (which are not set to None) are used.
To listen to stereo input signal using all speakers, switch decoder to enhancer mode.

Center speaker still not working :(


all your speaker channels are working so your problem lies with a setup fault. when you watch tv you are only feeding a stereo signal into the amp. you need to select the internal surround sound generator. you need to select either the movie or surround function. the unit will convert the stereo signal to 5.1 channel surround.
