    At the risk of sounding incredibly stupid...

    I've got a Yamaha RXV 565, i've been using my 1010i to carry bass as i didn't have a sub..

    I've now got a sub, 1000si.

    When i'm playing a movie through my XBMC Media Center which has a 5.1 track, the sub symbol comes up and i get bass through the sub..

    When i'm playing a 2.0 movie, it doesn't..

    I realize this is because it does have the .1 - but does my amp have the ability to fake bass or something.. So it uses the sub.. Whats the best setting i should use on the amp when im playing movies which do not have a .1.

    Sorry if this is an epically stupid question, i am very much a beginner.

    Thanks chaps

    Did you re run setup when you got the sub? If so, check the settings because Yamaha setup often gets a few things wrong. If you didn't run setup, do so and check the following settings

    All speakers should be set to small and the crossover should be 80HZ. Also, make sure the setting 'LBE + BASS OUT' is set to subwoofer only.

    The settings on the sub itself before running setup should be Crossover set to max and gain (volume) set to half way.

    If you've selected pure direct to play your stereo, the sub won't be active at all as all bass management is dissabled and all speakers treated as large in pure Direct mode.
