Question about Yamaha HTR-5990 Receiver
While adjusting the speaker levels using the onscreen menu, My receiver quit recognizing the surround speakers. Troubleshooting steps taken: Checked connections at unit. disconnected power for a few minutes and re-energized. Attempted to activate the surround speakers from the on screen menu. Switched surround wires to front terminals to confirm connections at speakers are tight. Unit is 1 year old and haven't experienced any problems.
