Hi @bayleighthomass ,

Just verifying that you have double checked that all the settings highlighted in the image below, especially the setting for switching the rear speaker output are correct.

Hi @bayleighthomass ,

Seems too coincidental to have 2 faulty units.

When you say "the amp light is on" assume that you mean that you have an external power amp for the unit. Is this correct?

To me this means that your connections should be as per the "without internal amp" connections found on p.34 of the guide. Is this how you have it connected?
