    So I finally got to setup my surround. I've been told since I get digital channels, I can use the digital audio out to just run sound to my receiver. The digital cable glows red on one so I assume that's working. Is it like always on or what? I don't really see a setting on the tv to switch to digital out. My receiver is the denon avr-1513. My tv is LE42S704.

    Is your cable using the ATSC, or do you have a STB?

    Page 33(might have been 34) of your TV's OM...Is the digital output set RAW or PCM?

    I see what I've done wrong. I have a optical cable. I thought I had the digital cable.

    Now we might get somewhere...

    It sounds like you haven't assigned the optical input on the Denon. You need to go in set-up and "attach" the optical to Cable/Sat.

    Makes no difference(been ages since I looked at the rear panel of that AVR to see its labeling, but however it is marked is irrelevant anyway) if the optical says cable/sat or not. You still have to assign it.

    And yes, that MP cable is the correct one. (toslink stands for Toshiba Link. It is their take on the SPDIF protocol. The "other" being digital coax)

    I play around with some things and it finally started worked. I'll loving it now. I guess it wasn't assigned. Gotta do some cable management now
