    I just got a monster cable on sale for 10 bucks of 6 ft. (pretty good value) I connected it to the digital out in my DVD player and the input of my reciever.blah..blah.. But I popped in Die Hard With A Vengance SE.. The signal didn't pick up nor did my front speakers on the LCD screen.. I set it to auto which shows up as Digital Auto. The other option is analog..I don't want that. Can someone help me out.
    Thanks in advance

    If you haven't taken it back yet, did you enable "digital all" or "bitstream on" in your DVD player?? Sometimes connection jacks get loose but does not necessarily mean they don't work.
    But if it's loose you better take it back.
    When you get your new player make sure you go into the audio set up menu on your new DVD player and enable the bitstream.
    If you already did this/know about this, then disregard.
    Good Luck!
