Onkyo TR-SR 605 set up problem

by rschlanesq / June 4, 2008 2:38 AM PDT

I have a analog tv. Attached my cable directly to receiver. Attached receiver to tv. I have 4 speakers, two in front and two in rear. When I use cable, I only get sound out of one front speaker in all modes except mono where I get sound out of all speakers. For instance, I know that the cable stations broadcast in stereo, but if I try to put receiver in stereo, it only comes out of one front speaker. I used the receiver to test all speakers and they are all operational. What gives

How do you have your cable box connected to your receiver? 2-Channel RCA's for audio and 1 RCA for video?

however, my instinct tells me that your receiver is wack. Assuming setup is fine (which is hard to mess up)... maybe a reset to the receiver. You will lose all settings, but its a small pain, well worth it.

if that doesn't work, exchange it before 30 days are up or whatever. good luck, sorry.

oh.. if using analogs, sometimes using a digital connection will bypass this problem. THIS IS NOT AN Excuse, as your receiver will technically still have issue. This is a recourse in case you cannot return the item. try it out.
