Question about Onkyo HTR500 Receiver

1 Answer

Rear surround speakers quit working from my Onkyo

My girlfriend tried to watch a dvd on my home theater system while I was out of town. Apparently she changed some setting on my Onkyo receiver because now the rear surround sound speakers won't work. I noticed the receiver says PCM on the display which I don't remember seeing before. However, I can't seem to change it to DTS or whatever I need it. I try, but no sound is produced. Any help would be appreciated.

It looks like the audio output was changed on the player so that it doesn't output 5.1. Enter the setup menu on the player and change DTS to output DTS instead of what be labled as stereo or L/R and Dolby Digital to output Dolby Digital instead of whatever else it is set to.

I have an Onkyo HT-S6100 home theater not sending picture to TV.


I just fixed mine with the same problem. Apparently, the HT-R667 and 606 receiver that comes with 6100 has a problem with the HDMI board. Onkyo wanted $500 dollars to fix it, costed me $16. Here's how to fix it. http://www.highdefforum.com/high-definition-receivers-recorders-players-tivos/121956-repairing-onkyo-htr667-aka-606-a.html

Center speaker and wireless rear speakers have no sound


I had the same issue, but apparently...it's not an issue. What I discovered is that the system was fine, but the station I was watching didn't broadcast in 5.1 surround sound. Therefore, only the front speakers will have sound. Try putting a dvd in, or listening to a gameing system through it. If you don't have sound after listening to something that puts out full surround sound, then you know you have an issue.
