Sorry to burst your bubble my freind but things do wear out as you had plenty of life out of this unit.. Your problem is a transistor or a driver IC is breaking down under a load and heat and will get worse to where you wont be able to use the unit.. It will probable cost you in a range of 200 bucks or .more!as there is no quick fix for a solid state unit that has no user serviceable parts inside. Its just not replacing the bad part , its the hooking up to the load resistors then seeing that several other parts are not up par and having to start rebuilding the amp statges of your reciver.. If its more then 8 years old Time to landfill it and get a new one .. Put it to rest. It dosent owe you anything as its been loyal to you all these years!! Good Luck

1. make sure you are sending a 5.1 signal to the receiver (my DVD player was configured to only send stereo even if I picked the 5.1 soundtrack, i had to fix that). Read the manual to see the indicator lights that would light up if you are sending a DTS signal or Dolby Digital.
2. Use the 'surround modes' to at least get pseudo surround

Make sure that the sound field/programme you have selected is dolby digital not stereo.(On the amp)
You also need to check on the display that is says DIGITAL not ANOLOUGE, as only a digital input, Optical fibre cable, HDMI, COAX will be a digital signal.
If you are using red and white rca connectors, it is not going to work, as this is an Anolouge signal.
