Rear speakers can't get working
Only have 2 front and 2 back speakers, doing the auto test function all speakers work fine. Go to TV etc and only front 2 speakers work?

Rear speakers are plugged in to rear surround sound, second group from the left.
I'm sure I'm missing something but can't figure it out. Go to info (i think) and indicates front speakers highlighted but not the rear sound sound. How do I turn this on? Strange, as the test mode picked up on all 4 speakers
Anyone, any suggestions please.Thanks Mike

Awesome Receiver
Had to replace my old faithful 9 year old Denon receiver when I up graded to an LG OLED TV that had all the newest technology. I’m very impressed with how this AVR has brought my entertainment system together. I have a 4k UHD blue ray player, PS4 pro and 4k Roku connected to the Denon and everything works flawlessly. With eARC sound and picture look amazing. I especially like that I do not have to manually change inputs for each device. Something that I had to program my no longer needed Harmony remote to do. Just turn on the component you want and the receiver automatically switches to that input. You will not be disappointed with this receiver.

Love my Denon receiver!
This receiver was easy to set up and sounds great! The on screen setup app was easy to follow and I had no issues getting everything to work. I am using the pre-amp out to a multi-zone amp for whole house sound, and it too was easy to set up and make everything work. So far, everything has been great!
