    We just got digital cable (only for the channel selection and the fact that we live in an apartment). I can get the digital audio to work on the digital channels, but not the analog channels. In order to get sound for both sources, I have to connect the digital coax and the analog RCAs to the reciever and then manually switch between them. This is a bit of a pain. Is there some way that I am missing to either get the analog soudn signal to output to the digi-coax out or a setting on the SR4200 to get it to auto switch?

    Aaron,

    With digital cable the channels below a certain number (usually 100) are still analog. Therefore you will need to have your RCA jacks and your digital coax connected at the same time.

    Unfortunately I can't comment on the auto switch feature as I'm not familiar with your receiver. Perhaps another forum member can shed some light on that.
