Hello, I'm new as you can tell. Not quite so as far as audiophile knowledge goes, but to the forum. I bought this kenwood 1060vr unit at a yard sale a while ago, good deal, $20. Well what did you know, I get it home and hooked up and realize I can't use the surround channels (other than the center channel, it seems to be always on). After looking into it, you need the remote (I never got one when I bought it sadly) to turn on the rear channels (they're off by default apparently) and the subwoofer out (using high level inputs atm). It's a nice unit, 110 watts per channel, traitr amplifier, sounds great. I figure tho, there's always a equivilent pin on the circuit board for each button push on the remote right? Is there a chance of rigging something like switches up or the such? I have some sony 120watt rear speakers I have setup, just need this.. Any ideas would be appreciated.
