Question about Pioneer VSX-D458 Receiver
Hello there. The problem I am having is that when I have my centre channel on 3CH Logic, Normal, Wide, I can only hear my centre speaker; thats it... no front speakers or rear! I have my front right and left speakers hooked up to my A channel and I have my centre channel hooked up to its centre jacks, and my rear bookshelf speakers are hooked up to my surround left and surround right. Why am I not able to hear all my speakers at the same time. When my center mode is on wide, I can hear my front speakers at a "very" low volume. Could someone please tell me if I am doing something wrong here please. Thanks in advance!!!
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.
