This is a copy of a Receivers/Seperates/Amps reply that I just posted. Seems to fit in this section also!! Let me share a brain fart I had the other day. Time Warner just installed a new digital box, the Scientific Atlanta Explorer 2100. The installation technician just hooked it up like the old analog box, L + R for audio, cable coax for video. Well of course I switched it to S-Video and Digital audio. The picture was vastly superior, but no sound!! I checked my connections and everything looked fine. Still no sound!! So I got on the phone to the cable company, but the gal I was talking to didn't seem to know what my problem was. As she put me on hold, I figured out what I had done wrong!! I had disconnected the analog L + R audio, assuming that the digital out carried all of the channels siginals. You know what they say when you ASSUME!! The channels under 100 are analog, over 100 are digital. I really enjoy the DD 5.1 that HBO has on some of their movies. Now for my next problem, My Pioneer Elite VSX-09TX has ran out of digital inputs...time for a new receiver!!
