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.

Re: Rear surround speakers quit working from my Onkyo
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 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.
and the youtube vid:
the onkyo receiver should have hdmi jacks on it labeled cbl/sat,dvd, and so forth. plug the hdmi wire into the dvd and from the dvd to the hdmi jack on the onkyo that says dvd. then run another hdmi cable from the hdmi out jack on the onkyo receiver to the tv
Check speaker wireing make sure all positive and negative connections are correct. What cable are you running from tv or DVD player.check to see that wireing is correct on receiver for sorround speakers. Run audysee sound calibrator set up. Make sure correct settings for sorround sound in bluray player/DVD player
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.
