Hey everyone, kind of new to home theatre in a way. I have had a/v receivers in the past, but never have paid much attention to tweaking and using them properly. Basically turned them on and watched a movie. I am finding out now (thanks to this forum) how much there is to learn, and how enjoyable it CAN all be when operating properly. I have upgraded to Yamaha RX-V800, and Energy Encore satellites combined with a Sound Dynamics THS-1000 sub that my wife has had in a closet for a few years. We also have a Sony s570D dvd player and a plain jane 32 inch Sony Trinitron which has a great picture (we think), but lousy inputs. I hope this will be a decent system for a newbie for at least a couple years, and am interested to hear what others would think of it. I gotta say though that all of the info. is very intimidating for someone relatively new to all this. So in the coming weeks I am going to have some pretty dumb questions I'm sure! Anyway, first dumb question: I have everything hooked up and running the way I think it's supposed to be, but my bass and treble controls on the front panel of receiver dont seem to have any effect. I have tried them under different dsp modes and without any dsp at all, and still nothing. Can someone tell me what might be wrong? Thanks for all the helpful info.
