Only have sound on my front speakers with my HT - AS8 home theater system
I have checked all connections multiple times, and even swapped speakers connections to ensure that all the speakers are fully functioning. I only hear out of the front 2 speakers, nothing out of the 2 rear, center or sub. I'm pretty sure it is a programming issue, but for the life of me can't seem to figure this out. I'm not a novice at this, but am quickly running out of ideas. Please help.

Re: Only have sound on my front speakers with my HT - AS8...
This is a very common complaint that new users complain about. On your system or modt folks system, they say that the DVD will work fine on the surround but the TV set and or the radio will not. The biggest problem I have found regarding this is that the TV set is not connected through the correct audio plugs and/or the suround selector switch was set to the wrong surround setting. Look on your owners manual for the correct settings when using a TV set or set the setting to differant mode while having the TV set on.

1. Connect the front left,
front right, center, and sub woofer speakers to the back of the home theater
the home theater system off, insert the TX card into the TX Card connection
(WIRELESS) on the back of the home theater. Important:
Make sure to insert the TX card with the slanted portion of the card facing
3. Connect the
rear left and the rear right speakers to the back of the SWA-3000.
4. Plug the power cord
of the SWA-3000 into an electrical wall outlet, and then switch the power
switch on the back of the SWA-3000 to [ON]
Your systemn is designed and built to perform 2.1 sound. If you want 5.1 sound you can do 2 things, connect another pair of speakers to the same speakerterminal as your front speakers, however this produces 5.1 stereo sound and not 5.1 surround sound. You can buy a new system that has the proper connections.
This set will not have the proper decoding software to produce 5.1 surroundsound. sorry.
With the home theater system off, press and hold the REMAIN button on the home theater's remote control for 5 seconds. Note: You can release the REMAIN button when the POWER LED blinks blue/Red depending on model.
With the SWA-3000 turned on, use a ball point pen to press the RESET button on the back of the SWA-3000. The POWER LED in the front of the home theater blinks two times.
