Onkyo 606 and 7.1 surround


Standard Member
I am having a little difficulty with 7.1 surround sound.

I bought a couple of extra speakers to get the full surround effect when playing blu-rays through my ps3. I then discovered the rather annoying fact that hardly any blu-rays are actually in 7.1!!

Never mind, I thought, I'm sure my slick new onkyo 606 receiver will be able to compensate and just mimic the surround sound in the extra 2 speakers. Unfortunately, this doesn't seem to be the case, so while watching a movie I have 2 speakers behind me that produce no sound at all.

Is there a way around this or is 7.1 surround just a huge waste of money!!!

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
