Audyssey won't initialize the left rear channel speaker input during set-up
In setting up my new onkyo tx-sr 606 reciever, I tried using the Onkyo Audyssey's new Dynamic EQ loudness compensation technology. i was able to set-up all the speakers, but only the back left rear channel cannot be initialized. I have new Bose speakers and I checked them and they all work. Any reason for this problem?

from the problem description, it sounds like a wiring/setup problem with the speakers. check to make sure you are only using the main 'a' front r & l speaker connectors. if you select speaker set a + b on the front, you will not have the rear channels. please see the speaker connection guidelines in the manual on page 13-15. make sure the audessey mike and/or headphones are not plugged in when trying to use the speaker set up function.
Audyssey is the licensed feature this receiver uses for room and dynamic equalization. It sounds like the Audyssey process is activated. The manual says the Audyssey indicator "flashes during automatic speaker setup".
Has this unit ever worked or are you still setting it up?
Powering off usually points to issues with speaker setup. You should read pages 42 and 96 of the 606 manual.
Page 42 covers impedence settings. Check your impedence settings for your speakers. The 606 handles speakers from 4 to 16 ohms. There are two impedence settings on the 606 - 4 ohms and 6 ohms. Set to 4 ohms if your speakers are 4 ohms or more but less than 6 ohms. Set to 6 ohms if your speakers sit between 6 and 16 ohms. Incorrect settings can result in the 606 going into power protection after prolonged use or at higher volume.
Page 96 covers testing for unexpected power protection. You should switch off your AV at source and leave for an hour. Disconnect all cables to speakers and other peripherals (TV, DVD et al). After an hour turn on AV and turn volume to MAX, If the AV remains on, turn down volume to min, switch off AV and reconnect all devices. Make sure the speaker cables are properly connected and that no bare wiring is exposed.
Once you have done this switch on the AV and turn to volume to MAX. If the AV stays on then problem solved. If the AV switches off then you should contact your supplier.
GO TO HARDWARE IN MENU SWITCH HDMI AUDIO OUT OFF, IF THIS DOSE NOT WORK MAKE SURE B SPEAKERS ARE NOT ON AS THIS PUTS THE MENU UP THE LEFT ,SOUNDS DAFT BUT IT DOES.IF YOU STILL HAVE PROBLEMS YOU HAVE A FAULT.
The problem was that some subwoofers (inluding my velodyne model) cannot process the LFE signals through the line level inputs on its amps, so the other way to run your subwoofer is to run the front left and right speaker outputs from your receiver to the speaker-level inputs on your sub, and then plug your front and left speakers into the soeaker level outputs on the sub. you have to set the onkyo receiver to "Subwoofer: No". that way the LFE signals are sent through the front speaker channels and you will get the same BASS output as if using the line-level input. O So yes it does require a bit more speaker cable, but it works fine now.
