I can not change the "sound field program" mode to other modes (music/movie/sports/game). Also the DEC. MODE button doesn't work. It worked when I first hooked up the system. All other buttons work. What have I done wrong and how do I fix it.

Some/most Sub Woofers have a Switch that turns them Off/On/ or Auto. On Auto, the Sub only turns on when there is a signal present. ( sound coming into the Sub ) When there is no signal, the sub goes into standby mode. Wireless subs may be made to be in standby mode as the default.
In a surround sound system, the correct way to listen to music is in stereo mode which will play out of your left and right channels and your subwoofer. When viewing a movie with surround sound, then you should use your rear speakers. The key element to remember is that rear speakers are only intended to play your sound effects, and will not play full range audio. Thats what your fronts and center are for. If you simply want to override this, than you will need to select the direct sound field on your receiver and than it will send full range audio to all speakers connected. Most likely, its not going to sound that good. If you dont know what each sound field does, here is a list and function of the most commonly used ones.
Stereo-Front Left and Right speakers including subwoofer
Dolby Digital or PLII Movie-these are the bost options for your surround sound
Direct-All speakers connected get full range signal
You can try starting the music on your computer before trying to change the input on the receiver, maybe it needs to recognize some input before it will change if this doesn't help double check your connections & settings ?
I am assuming that you want to have a normal stereo ( 2 channel ) from, CDs, Radio Etc..To be able to play from all of your speakers for a more surrounding sound experience, for parties or just more sound.I am also assuming you currently have your speakers wired like standard 5.1 in the bottom diagram on page 19 of your receiver manual.To change the way the sound is coming from your speakers you will need to refer to the “Sound Field Programs” part of your manual starting on page 52.You will want to be in the input source you would like to change “ie: radio”Let assume you want to change radio, once the radio is on;Rotate the “N” Program selector, (or press “5” and then “12” Prog < /> repeatedly ).You will want to change to program, “7ch Stereo”this should take your 2ch signal and send it to all connected speakers.If this does not work, please let me know.
i have the same moviestars 70+ plus a yamaha rx-v750 put the crossover on the sub to maximum (left knob) volume (right knob) about 2/3 clockwise. change the crossover on the yamaha to anywhere from 80-120 ( the 120 will put more bass to the sub) if your yamaha has sub level/volume control set it higher, also if it has LFE/sub out set it to sub only.
