Why can't I hear any audio even though everything is hooked up correctly?
Sometimes you just can't hear any audio even when things are correctly connected. Here are some things to check:

Power Check: As silly as it sounds, make sure the receiver is plugged in and turned on.

Volume Check: Make sure you have the volume control turned up enough. If you don't hear anything, though, be sure to turn it back down so you won't get thrown across the room when you do find the cause.

Speaker Selection: make sure the proper set of speakers (A or B) is selected.

Mute Control: Check to be sure the receiver isn't muted.
