Put it on dolby and make sure all the speaker outlines light up. I can't get a subwoofer to work, these things are lemons, had it 7 yrs now, and never has worked entirely as it should. I'm looking to replace it now.

I realize this may sound silly but it could be the disc your are playing. Some DVDs are not mixed for surround sound and thoes that are produce very little sound from the rears.
Rear speakers were meant for effect, not meant to distract you from the picture.
Give this a try, get a movie playing that is 5.1 surround sound. Check that the home theatre is not set to stereo mode, if it is change the surround mode on the unit. Now that you are in the middle of an action scene disconnect the front speakers and see if there is background noise comming out of the rears.
If its still dead let me know more details about the system and I will work on a solution.
sounds like you need to surround modes. There is usually a Stereo, Dolby, DTS, "virtual surround", 4-speaker mode etc.. When you play a CD or connect to TV it likely defaults to playing stereo or virtual surround.
With real surround, almost all of the voices are coming from the center-channel speaker (normally placed closest to the TV).
Also, check to make sure the center channel is connected properly.
for your dvd player you just go from audio out on the back of the dvd played to the audio in on the surround sound. and you would do the same for the tv if it has an audio out. your surround sound shoud have more than 1 audio in. and then when you swicht from tv to dvd you might have change the channle, setting, source, or what ever it might be called on the surround sound. and if your tv does not have a audio out contact me at [email protected] and i try to help you. hope that works :)
It sounds like you don't have your surround sound source set up properly (your DVD player is not set up for PCM sound).
the best quality audio will be to set up either digital or optical audio between the DVD and the receiver.
Once you have connected the optical or digital audio cable between the DVD and receiver, you have to go into the DVD player audio setup and change it to PCM digital audio or you will not get surround sound. DVD players are not set up by default to output surround sound.
To upmix 2-channel sound (such as that in a TV broadcast) into 5.1 sound, press AMP and then SUR. DECODE until "PL II Movie" is displayed. This will give you "cinema-like" surround sound from a 2-channel source.
You can also assign this to one of your "Scenes" by following the procedure for scene assignment on page 26 of your manual.
The rear speakers sound far away when playing dts soundtracks - is this a setting issue? The dts track in question is a reference disc
