so tried to upload pics no luck bit it's a Yamaha rxv671

Jordan, that reciever has surround sound decoding built in but it does not have analog line outputs for all those channels.. just the main stereo pair, so you will only get processed surround sound from the speakers connected to the reciever. You can however connect the stereo line or Zone outputs from it to your powerd mixer and get sound to those speakers that way, this makes the reciever the main hub of the system... all A/V sources should connect to it and not the mixer.

ok cool thank you for that information.!I guess thatís what I was asking how do I make it my hub of my whole system? Iíve tried connecting pc to it and have the mixer connected to both outputs for analog on the receiver and no luck. Iím doing something wrong

You cannot get anything but left, right, and sub out of this receiver at line level.  Surround is only available at speaker level

Can you explain that in more detail, exactly how are you connecting the PC to the reciever... via USB or analog patch cables? There are a LOT of settings available inside an AVR so you will have to sit down with the user manual and make sure everything is correctly enabled before you get audio where you want it... it won't just happen after the cables are connected.
