Don't know, but some things to check:

1. Your system has two zones for speakers (A and B). If you have the speakers set to zone "B" no sound is sent to the subwoofer.

2. On page 52 of the owner's manual (I looked online) it shows how to tell your receiver that the sub is connected. Maybe out of the box it is set to "No" for sub not connected.

Some receivers also have a "night" mode as well, you might want to check to see if that is turned on. Do you have any THX dvd's? I believe they have audio tests that will test the sub.

Digital Video Essentials. Also has a Bluray version if that works for you.

my settings on the receiver were all wrong.. so i reset the system then used the Digital Video Essentials and got the system setup right... i also bought new speaker wire that was thicker then what i had... as i heard that can also make a difference....
