Even The Back Speakers(Rear). All working fine. Then i put a dvd in to try if it works. The dvd was working but the Rear Speakers(Back) Were not working at all. Only the Woofer,2 Front Speakers and the small one was working. I Know its not a biggy deal but is there any possible way to fix this? like a solution? Thank You Very Much -Patel

First, welcome to HTF! It is entirely possible that your DVD is not encoded for surround sound.

Hi Amitabh, 

The surrounds will not be used all the time with movies.  Most of the sound will come from the center speaker, followed by the left and right fronts.  The surrounds only get used when there is something directed to them (each movie is different - some will have lots of sound from the surrounds, some will have almost nothing).

I searched and could not find a manual for your receiver.  I'm guessing that '3D' sound is some sort of matrix that sends sound to all the speakers.  Ideally, you would not want that.  You want plain old Dolby Digital or DTS.   If you have a link to the manual please post it.

Also, here's a guide for how the speakers should be arranged for 5.1.  I wouldn't suggest putting them in the corners of your room....
