Surround Back Rear Speakers

Hi all members, Having problems in setting up Rear back surround speakers from my AV / Receiver, very strange fault, whenever I do an Auto Calibration sound is heard from the back speakers, but when I have Blu-Ray, DVD, & Sky HD no sound is heard from rear speakers. Today I installed a brand new cable to both rear back speakers, by doing this the problem is still there, it makes me think that there is a fault within the Receiver. I have ckecked all the speaker connections & all connections are intact. Recently I reduced the speaker system from 7.1 to 5.1. After each test an Error 33 message  appears on the screen, I have read  and digested what the Manual is instructed me to do with Error 33, but no joy.

Looking for somebody that had a similar fault, or anybody that could assist me to rectify the problem.

Awaitining for any Response,thanking you kindly,

Regards :- FROGIT

RE: Surround Back Rear Speakers

Are you adding any post-processing to the input audio? SkyHD doesn't provide any information for rear surrounds and only EX/ES flavours of DD and DTS on DVD will do, similarly only Blu-rays that have 7.1 soundtracks will actually contain any soundtrack information for those channels, so unless you've got something that has 6 or 7 channels you're not going to hear anything out of those speakers. The fact that you hear test tones indicates it isn't a speaker cable problem.

RE: Surround Back Rear Speakers

Two things - model of AV Receiver would be useful...

But more likely is that the Blu Ray could only have a 5.1 encode, and so, unless you use a 5.1->7.1 re-mixing option om your AVR, the surround backs won't get used.

IIRC Sky HD is 5.1 only.

As for the Error 33 - did you re-set the speaker set up on the AVR to 5.1 and re-run the calibration and then you got the error?

RE: Surround Back Rear Speakers

Code 33

• None of the front speakers are connected or only one front speaker is connected.
• The optimizer microphone is not connected.
• Either the left or right surround speakers is not connected.
• Surround back speakers arc connected even though surround speakers are not connected.
Connect the surround speaker(s) to the SURROUND terminals.
• The surround back speaker is connected only to the SURROUND BACK SPEAKERS R
terminals. When you connect only one surround back speaker. connect it to the
SURROUND BACK SPEAKERS L terminals.

Probs no help. Phase ok? Else are u using a 'pure' ie no processing setting - As said there is little out there with 7-1. Warhorse is a great test for 7-1.

Cheers

Google it - you are not alone !
