So I just bought some new speakers:
Center - CSi3
Sub - PSW 10
Fronts - RTi6
I kept my last front channel speakers (Infinity) for use as my rear L/R.
I own a Sony STR-DE597 receiver. This displays the speakers that are reproducing sound. It will display the letter of the specific speakers enclosed in a box. So for example. I have my Center, Front L/R, Sub, and Rear L/R but the receiver does not enclose the RL or RR as it does the others.
When I was running the wires for the rears, I had to staple them to the wall, so as to keep them low profile. I mistakenly drove a staple into the wires, both. Do you think that as a result of that the receiver is not reading those speakers.
I must add this though. The speakers are reproducing sound. The receiver is simply not displaying them on its screen. I think it might be a problem with the receiver but I figure I'd try this out first.
I will also add that this is the first time hooking up rears to that receiver.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
