Question about Yamaha 5.1-Ch. Surround Sound Home Theater Speaker System

1 Answer

I have an older model Yamaha HTR 5830 receiver and I want to set it up for surround sound (5.1). When I test the receiver all five speakers give back a signal, but nothing ever comes out of the center or rear speakers when I use my TV. (AN LG high def). The stereo speakers are fine. I run an optical cable from the receiver to the TV. The TV is set for surround sound and so is the receiver. Could the problem be that my receiver is too old to work with my TV (which is only 6 months old)? Thanks

The broadcaster of the TV station has to tell you they are transmitting surround sound - sometimes they are just transmitting stereo. Also, the media as in CD's and DVD movies must have surround sound embedded or recorded on it to allow surround sound.

Cant get front left and right speakers to produce sound....when i try to use the receiver remote to turn up the decibals on the front speakers it wont go past "0"...it will go into the negatives...


1. Speaker B instead of A selected??? Page 53.

2. As far as the Fronts limiting to 0 dB, they are the reference for all others. Perhaps the engineers thought it made no sense for the stake in the ground to have a moving reference level. See step 3 on Page 50.

Surround speakers work in test mode but won't come on during play


Check that you set it to Pro logic and check the speaker set-up. Set it to 5.1 Sounds like somthing is in the wrong setting.

Yamaha HTR-6130 Front right and left speakers with no sound


As simple as this sounds, try hitting the speaker a/b button on the front of the unit, next to the headphone jack. I had the same problem, and was about to package the whole thing back up and go back to Best Buy when I hit this button and then the audio test worked.
