    I have a very basic home theatre set up. 35" TV, Sony DVD, Sony Home Theatre (500 watt). I had everything working great, digital cable was hooked up to my receive correctly, same with the DVD to Receiver, surround sound the whole works...
    I had to take everything apart to put into my new entertainment center. I thought I was doing everything correctly, but my DVD to Receiver "digital out" (audio)connection isn't hooked up properly and I don't have a clue why? I've been throught the directions three times and I could swear I have done everything to the "t". Everytime I unplug the digital out cable (regular coaxial monster) that runs from the receiver to DVD the analog connection works (you can hear sound as it's meant to be). Everytime I plug the digital connection it cuts off (no sound). Any clue on what I've done wrong?

    I'm not familiar with your receiver BUT, maybe you have to switch the receivers setting to recognize the digital input so that it isn't looking for an analog signal for that particular componant. I hope this helps.

    This might be silly, but the cable needs to go to the digital in of the receiver, and the digital out of the DVD player. That's what you're doing, right?

    Yes, I've done all that correctly, it's still a mystery. I'm really not an idiot. [​IMG]

    OK, that's good [​IMG] It's not about being an idiot... when you do figure it out, it'll almost certainly be something that'll make you slap your forehead and go DUH! [​IMG]

    You probably hv to go back into the DVD players menu and open up the digital stream.
