WOW disc/5.1 speaker test fail


Novice Member
Hi there I've recently installed my first dedicated home theater:

Receiver: Yamaha RX-V375
Projector: ViewSonic PJD7820HD (projecting onto painted white wall 130")
Speakers: Yamaha NS-SP1800 5.1-channel speaker package

Probably a baby system compared to most on the forums lol.
Anyways, I was using the Disney WOW: World of Wonder to do audio testing....

I tried 5.1 speaker test on the WOW disc and the rears were barely audible and nothing coming out of the LFE/Sub.
Yet when I try Yamaha's built in testing the 5.1 channels are very distinct and all sound fine.
Movies are also playing fine.

What gives? Am I missing some setting that the WOW disc needs? I've tried playing around with surround sound settings too... changing to DLPII and other settings. No change.
