A friend of mine gave me this receiver and I like it, no real problems so far. If you have 2ch hooked up...5.1 or whatever, you should get 2ch out? If you can get to a remote or use the onscreen display, maybe you have a 'synthesized' surround sound mode from stereo. The optical cable is dirt cheap.....maybe 15$ at Walmart, which will certainly do for tests. CD's and tapes, MP3's, TV's, computers and phono will not produce - and therefore do not require - a multi-channel input.
But I was given this with no manual (and no remote) and I hooked up everything, including two sets of working speakers ('front' speakers and then the other pair into rear). Do I need to run things through the DVD/5.1 inputs? If the back speakers don't work then, you may actually have a problem. Play a movie and make sure the DVD player is setup for 5.1 output...... (The exception would be a computer with a multi-channel output which is unlikely to exist here.) Just plug the interconnect cables from each component into the inputs as labelled and, if there's no label for "computer", use something like "aux" instead.

And if I have multiple inputs (tv, computer, etc), how do I get them to work also? You are trying to get sound from the rear speakers. However, you can't expect two channel sources to play in all channels.

Does it matter that I don't have a center channel speaker hooked up at the moment? If the receiver is less than five yrs old, you should be able to download the manual. Having a ctr spkr is a good idea and you probably need to have some sort of surround on to get sound from the rear speakers. If there are preamp outs on the receiver, they are probably your zone 2 & 3 outputs for listening to music in another room. If you play a CD for example the receiver will detect a two channel source and automatiy switch to two channel output which would not include the rear speakers.
