    Yamaha RX-A3060 YPAO not doing angle measurement for rear surrounds

    I recently added a pair of rear surrounds to my system. They work, and YPAO detects them when I do the auto-setup, but when I use the "boomerang" to do the speaker angle measurements, it misses them out. Is this intentional, does anyone know? I can't find any mention of this in the manual or online.
