If you are unable to pair, it could be due to a loose connection or there could be too much distance between the units. Follow these steps to resolve this issue:

  1. Pull out both S-AIR transceiver cards and then push them firmly back in place until you hear a click.
  2. Turn the main unit and the wireless surround amplifier off and then back on again.
  3. Do the following programming steps:
    1. On the main unit, press SYSTEM MENU.
    2. Press the up or down arrow repeatedly until S-AIR ID appears in the display.
    3. Press the + button.
    4. Press the up or down arrow to select ID A.
    5. Press the + button.
    6. Press the SYSTEM MENU button once more to exit the menu.
  4. On the back of the wireless surround amplifier, check to see if the red light is illuminated.
    • If the red light is not illuminated, set the S-AIR ID switch to A and the Surround Selector switch to SURROUND.
    • If the red light is illuminated or blinking, change the S-AIR ID switch to a different channel and then select Channel A. The red light should go off.
  5. The units should now pair.

    NOTE: The green light on the surround amplifier should be solid.

After you have established the connection, when playing a two-channel source, such as a TV or CD, in order to get sounds from all the speakers, follow these steps:

NOTE: If the sound from a Television program is monaural, sound will output only from the center speaker.

  1. Press SYSTEM MENU.
  2. Press the up or down arrow repeatedly until DEC. MODE appears in the front display.
  3. Press the + button.
  4. Press the up or down arrow repeatedly until PRO LOGIC, PLII, or PLII MUSIC appears in the front display.
  5. Press the + button.
  6. Press the SYSTEM MENU button to exit the menu.
