Hi all, I just replaced my cheapo Logitech gaming 5.1 surround system in a box with a proper a/v receiver (Yamaha RX-V483) and proper 5.1 speakers... I'm all grown up....

But... It's day one with the new receiver and I am bummed that I don't have a couple features that my cheapo Logitech htib had. Maybe someone can cheer me up:

(1) How do I do "Stereo x 2" mode? On my Logitech speakers this would make normal 2 channel stereo, but then mirror it out the rear speakers. I see all kinds of settings here like "Concert Hall" and "Sci-Fi" but how do I do Stereo x 2 ?

(2) How do I quickly adjust the volume of the center and the rear speakers? On my Logitech's remote I had a separate little volume controls for "Center" and "Surround". Does the Yamaha 483 not have a similar feature? Is the only way to go into the settings and play with the "distance" of each speaker? :(

If anyone has any suggestions they would be welcomed, thanks in advance.
 
1. You want the sound program called 5ch stereo. Check the manual page 48

2. Distance changes the delay to each channel so the sound arrives at your listening position in sync from each speaker.
It doesn't change the level of the channel. There may not be a way to adjust levels on the fly. You may have to go into the speaker set up menu. They don't expect you to have to make constant adjustment to the speaker levels.

Thanks for the response... one more stupid question: I know this receiver only has one "Subwoofer Pre Out" jack, but is it possible to somehow use two subwoofers? Is there some way to send a signal to a second sub?
