    I just hooked up my new HK 254 yesterday. Everything seems to work, with one exception. My Xbox sends the signal through optical cable that DD is present(according to the receiver), but there is no sound!

    My other sources seem to work fine. Might this be as simple as a bad cable?

    So, you have set the Xbox to output the audio as "Bitstream", or "Raw"?
    It could be the cable. If you unplug the cable from the back of the receiver (still plugged into Xbox), can you see a red light in the end of the cable? Just a glance.........don't let the laser stay in your eyes.

    I can see a light in the cable.

    I should clarify, it is an Xbox 360, and output is set to DD in the audio settings.

    Did you configure the input on the reciever? Most digital receivers I'm familiar with don't pre-assign the digital audio inputs to AV sources, because they don't know what combination of optical and coaxial digital outputs your particular components might have. Instead they let you assign, say Digital 2 (Optical) to Video 1, and Digital 4 (coax) to Video 2, etc.

    Regards,

    Joe

    Joe -- Yep, inputs are assigned. The receiver does recognize the signal as the receiver has "dolby digital" onscreen. If it was not getting a signal, it would be in "Logic 7" mode.

    I just can't figure out why there's no sound from the speakers [​IMG]

    Could it be the cable then? Even if I see some red light from the end?
