I am normally pretty savvy technically, so I am sooo embarrassed that I am stumped before even getting started.
So I just bought a Onkyo HT-RC430 receiver to power 8 ceiling mounted Polk RC60i speakers. This is the only thing that the receiver will be used for.
Before cutting holes in my ceilings I decided to plug in the receiver and hook up one speaker just to make sure music did in fact emanate from the speaker, unfortunately everything was quiet. The name of the song is displayed on the screen however.
I have never used a receiver before so I really don't know where to start trouble-shooting. I have done all sorts of "Google's" looking for how to setup a basic home system for dummies, but just can't find anything.
Besides solving the issue of no sound, I need to understand how to hookup the speakers to a 5.1 system.
Some guidance would be greatly be appreciated.
