    I have that receiver in my shed powering my outdoor speakers. I have all 4 wired up but cannot for the life of me figure out how to get the rears to work. I have a coax feed from the dvd player to the receiver. The receiver says it's in prologic mode but the rears will not work. I am at a loss as I do not have the manuel.

    So you have two plugged into the "A" "Front" speaker input, and two plugged into the "Rear" inputs...correct?

    Thanks Alfer. I found out, via the manual, how to clear the memory, that did the trick, they work now.

    I think I'll swap the rock speakers to make them the mains and then the ones under the eves make them the surrounds. The surrounds out in the yard, even at max +10 are not very loud and the ones under the eves I cannot control the volume of so if I swap them I can better control the volume of the ones close to the house and crank the ones out in the yard to get a better balance.
