panasonic xr25 - will 2 rear speakers work?

hi,

I have a panasonic xr25 receiver. It is 6.1: front, center, subwoofer,
surround left, surround right and surround rear.

It can only be configured via the front panel to turn on/off
sets of speakers. In my case, the surrounds (all 3) can be
turned on or off.

How can I use just 2 surrounds, the right and left ones? Will it
cause problems to the receiver, or will I miss sound if I do this?

I guess most DVDs are 5.1. Or must I pop for a third
surround speaker?

thanks for any ideas

Roger

  It should have the option to turn off the surround back speaker (6.1) by
itself.  I have never seen a receiver yet that didn't have this option.  Do
you still have the manual?

I own a panasonic xr50 (also 6.1) and I am able to disable only the
rear-surround. I'm assuming you can do this also via the menu. If you are
able to do this, the 5.1 input will be output via your 5 speakers. If you
are inputting 6.1 or 7.1, the extra channels will just be matrixed into the
side surrounds. You therefore won't be "missing" any sound if you do this,
but you won't get the full effect. You are right in saying that most dvds
are 5.1 though.

Thanks for input. On the xr-25 you have to use
the front panel to set the speakers. I am following
the manual.

I double checked, I push input select and band at the same
time. Then go to speakers, push band to select between
front, center, subwoofer and surround. But there is no
separate surround left, right or rear selection
possible.

So I guess the question is what happens if I just connect
the left and right surround without a rear sound. Should be
ok for 5.1? Missing a channel for 6.1?

thanks, Dan
