    I am the newest possible at this (having waited until age 51 to venture into home theater).
    I have a Denon 2106 with 7 speakers plus a sub hooked up.
    When I run the speaker test all speakers respond so I assume they are hooked up correctly and working but I can only get sound, TV or DVD, using Stereo or Direct and then I only get sound from the front speakers.
    I can't get any sound using 7ch or any other surround settings.
    I don't know if this is enough info for someone to suggest a solution but I will gladly furnish more info about my setup if someone will help.

    Thanks for any help.

    mike

    I have a button on my remote that says 7 channel.
    Put a CD and play it. Make sure your CD player is hooked up to the CD outs on your receiver. Then press the button on your remote that says 7 channel. You should get sound on all 7 speakers. If you don't press that button I believe you will only get CD music on two speakers plus the sub.

    Hope this helps

    Thanks for the reply.
    I hooked up optical cables and got sound from all speakers but it is terrible compared to the 2 speakers that work as I said above.
    I think my amp is defective. It was an open item at Best Buy. It may have been returned defective.

    Never mind. The unit was defective. I traded it back for a Yamaha 5960 that is working perfectly.
