    When watching TV with my HT the only way i get sound to come out of the rear left and right speakers is to use CS6.1 MONO. PLII, PLII movie, and PLII music only have sound coming out of the center channel and the front left and right. how do i get sound from the rears without 6.1 mono?

    It would help if you told us what receiver and TV you have and how you have it hooked up.

    Are you using a VCR as well?

    Also - check your source. I have much more difficulty getting full surround from cable than from over the air or satellite transmission.

    With most TV shows using dolby prologic, I do get sound from the rear speaker. I used to get sound from the rear speakers with my old dolby prologic reciever. This experience is now enhanced with the DPLII movie or music mode. I have watched football, movies, kids cartoons, sitcoms etc and all of them put out decent sound in the rear speakers even withour DPLII. So it it not abnormal to have rear speakers working while watching TV shows.
    Check any of these shows
