I have a good link with rear speakers. I am connected by s/pdif cable from cable box to theater. I can only hear sound from front and center speakers. I do not hear sound from sub-woofer or rear speakers.
My remote control no longer works. I have replaced the batteries. I am making sure that I select the DVD Receiver/TV mode on the remote. The only way to turn on the receiver, turn up or down the volume, or change the video source if from the front panel of the receiver.
