    It would help if you specified the makes and models of the various pieces of equipment. Cable boxes and receivers vary widely.

    Also, I'm moving this to the Basics forum.

    Tim,

    Digital cable may or may not have an actual digital output. If not, analog sound is all you will get.

    Look for a coaxial digital output on the back of the cable box. If there is one, connect it to a digital input on your receiver, and configure it per the instructions in your receiver’s manual.
