    Hopefully, this is a quick one.
    I got a T60 about a month ago and all is find and dandy. I had it hooked up using the standard stereo RCA's until the toslink cable I order came in. So then I (thought I) set everything up correctly and indeed I'm getting signal to my receiver and it's even detecting DD on the broadcasts that claim to be so.
    The only strange thing is that I no longer get any of the audio from the Tivo operating system itself (the bing and bong noises when you navigate the menus). Is this a normal by-product of swithing between the two different outputs or is there a menu option that I missed somewhere.
    Mind you, I'm not complaining about the situation, just wondering.
    Thanks,
    -Kelly

    Kelly,
    It's normal. My Philips DSR6000 does/did the same thing after hooking up the TOSLink cable. It's mentioned in my TiVo manual that the TiVo sound effects go away when using this output.

    I believe that if you have both the Optical and the Analog cables connected to your receiver at the same time that you will still get the TiVo sounds via the analog cable - and still also be able to receive any Dolby Digital sound from the Optical cable.
    You may have to select "Auto Input" on your receiver versus having it strictly in "Analog" or "Digital" if your receiver supports this anyway.
    Hopefully I have helped....this is how I have mine connected anyway and I get both the TiVo sounds and DD sounds when needed.
