Hardware:
Cisco 9865HDC cable box
Yamaha RX-a810 receiver
Xbox One
DefTech 600 series 5.1 speakers

Configuration:
Cisco HDMI out to Xbox One HDMI in
Xbox HDMI out to Yamaha HDMI in
5 speakers are connected directly to receiver and sub connected via LFE

Settings:
Cisco has Surround Sound option enabled
Xbox set to 5.1 uncompressed and beta enabled for TV surround passthrough
Yamaha set to Direct or Surround Decoder

Issue:
I have been very happy with the setup so far as I am getting what I though was good surround sound while watching cable, playing movies, and playing games. I recently picked up the Disney WoW disc and was going through the speaker settings/identifier when a strange occurrence happened. When it was identifying my front 3 speakers it worked great, but upon identifying my 2 surround speakers, I could hear the surround right sound out of both the surround right and front right and then I could hear the surround left sound out of both the surround left and front left speaker. I have tried changing the Yamaha to Direct, Pure Direct, and Surround Decoder. I have also tried changing the Xbox One to Bitstream instead of 5.1 Uncompressed. If I do the speaker identification via the Yamaha YPAO setup, there are no problems.

Does anyone have any idea as to why this is happening and a possible fix?
