It is now 10pm. I have been on since 6pm trying to get this reciever to setup. My problem appears to be my rear speakers. A very silly question.. Do I connect them on the reciever to Surround Speakers OR Surround Back speakers?

This is doing my head in as I have little space to work in.

Also as my rears are 4 ohms and the rest is 8 ohms would this be why I get an error reading?

Anastie,
If you are running a 5.1 setup then you connect them to the surrounds.

Can you expand a bot on what you mean by "error reading"?

When i connected them to surround back reading the autoset up gave an overload message and shut down. Disconnected the rears from surround backs and all ok. Will go and connect the rears to surrouns speakers connections. Thanks and yes it is 5.1

The problem could lie with your rears only being 4 ohms. It tells you on page 9 of the manual to use speakers with an impendence of 8 - 16 ohms. The amp may be getting driven too hard to cope with the low impendence rating of your rears. I could be wrong though because I was using 6 ohm speakers all round before I upgraded to 8 ohm speakers all round. Possibly too much of a rating difference between your rears and the rest of your speakers? As you pointed out, the amp works fine when you disconnect them. Sounds like it's time to upgrade your rears. Saying that, it could be a simple connection problem. Check all your connections making sure that positives and negatives are all hooked up correctly. And yes, the rears connect to the surround L and R on the amp as mentioned on page 9 also. And in the above post :)

EDIT
Have you tried setting up your speakers manually rather than using the MCACC set up to see if there's any difference?

Thanks folks. At this point in time it appears to have been a connection problem. If not I will upgrade the rears, How sad :) :)
Will keep you all posted with a review soon as I get it setup right.

Well I can see why you thought that :). Its this home cinema lark once you start you dont rest until its sorted.
Finally I think it is now. Just need a few more tweaks to make sure my sub is being picked up by the reciever as it appears low on bass in movies:(
But last night it sounded fine:clap:
Will review in a few days.
