Help with Pioneer Receiver?!

I just hooked up my Pioneer VSX-815k and whenever there's a 5.1 being output the words OVERLOAD flash on the receiver screen and it powers off. What is most likely causing this overload? The speakers are 8ohms and can handle 120watts and the receiver puts out 100 per channel.

Have you tried connecting one speaker at a time? There could be a short in a surround speaker.

I'll try that. Because it did work fine when I had the center and the two fronts hooked up. So maybe there's a problem with the surrounds.
