Question about Onkyo HT-S790S System
I have recently bought a 7.1 HTS . I want to use only 5.1 in the main room and put 2 speakers in another room. My question is which 2 speakers should I use for the other room ? The ones meant for the side or the rear ones ? Also if I play my HT in 7.1 mode with only 5.1 speakers, will it cause a problem ? Thanks in advance
Set it at 7.1 and just take the rear speakers in the other room with enough speaker wire 16G preferred and set your AUDIO out put to 7.1 all channel stereo only catch is that you won't be able to get a good sound in the second room in any other audio format good luck my friend

You might want to take a look at your workmanship and back it off or just disconnect the speakers to see if it is the cause.

also, you might have to search through the menu of the receiver, and set the surround back speakers to be zone 2 instead of using the 7.1 configuration that is probably default.
i think zone 2 will only play sources that are hooked up with analog connects, ie. red/white cables. try using the radio to see if it works. you might have to hook up your cable/sat box, cd player, dvd player, whatever you have that you want to listen to with both digital and analog cables to get everything to work right.

That would mean you're trying to run two rooms with paired mono speakers and a different channel in each room. MMmm, okay.
It's a 2-channel power amp and it isn't really designed for the probable very low imedance you're providing with paired speakers on each terminal. And it has no ability to turn either channel on or off short of denying it a program input on either channel.
Perhaps if you ran one speaker from each channel into each room (impedance permitting), you would have two rooms with traditional 2-channel audio.

meter away from the TV."
You might experiment with moving the sub around.
