Question about Onkyo TX-DS575 Receiver
Hooked to surround sound, two front speakers, 4 wall speakers, 1 sub woofer. Restart unit and reduce volume unit is OK but normal talking is too low.
Hello Jerry, This means that the unit is going into protection mode. The unit will only go into protection mode for 2 reasons. The first reason would be if there is a short within the unit itself. The second reason would be if one of the speaker connections is causing a short. To isolate which of the two is the issue, you would first turn the unit off and unplug all of the speakers. Turn the unit back on with no speakers connected and raise the volume up. If the unit turns off with no speakers connected then we know that the issue is internal and would have to go in for repair. If the unit stays on, that will tell us that one or more of the speaker connections was causing the issue. If that is the case I would check all of your speaker connections and possibly start with fresh copper connections. Thanks, FJD

SOURCE: no surround sound
So your saying that you have no rear channel. Some recivers use a single stereo output ic for both sides on the rear speakers. you could have a defect with this IC . Anther thing Im sure you check3ed the obvious ie : the switch is on suround sound? If there is a front to rear fader is it in the middle? Good Luck

it is highly likely that you're TV is outputting mono sound, hence the left channel only. check your physical connections to the TV and the balance / channel volume on the television as well.

SOURCE: Rear Speaker volume too low
Channel level output can be adjusted in the menu if you have the remote. Set the rear channel level volume higher and the fronts lower if need be, and then turn up the volume. Enjoy!

SOURCE: No sound in surround modes
I just connected the front main speakers and sound well, but when i connect the speakers (2 fr, 2 rear, 1 ctr) there`s no sound in any surround mode from any source.

SOURCE: I hooked up a fiber
Make sure that the place it is plugged into the TV is an output and not an input for the fiber optic cable, and the place it is plugged into the Onkyo is an input and an output for the fiber optic cable. This can be connected backwards very easy. Then you want to make sure that the Onkyo is properly set on the right function to listen to the TV. Check your owners manual on how to set up the optical input and have it assigned to the function you are trying to use. Sometimes these type of receivers have an input mode button that you can set to "optical" or "analog" or "digital" or "auto". Try changing those settings after you make sure the TV optical is an "OUTPUT" and the optical on the Onkyo is a "INPUT".
After you have these thing set right you should be able to listen to it like this.
I hope this helps, if you need more help just reply back on this post, but please give more detail about the connectors and on the TV and the Onkyo, and about the digital input settings on the Onkyo. It would also help to know the model numbers of both the TV and the receiver. There is no way to check out what each of your devices are capable of doing without knowing the model numbers to look up the specs.
