I don't know if anyone else here has experienced this, but I had an optical cable just die.

I watched half of a movie, and then turned the whole system off. A few days later, I turned it all back on to watch the second half and had no sound. I checked the cable - red light was coming through. I used the same cable with two other devices (satellite and CD), and still no sound. I feared that the optical inputs on my receiver (Sony 333ES)died. So, I bought a new cable, and now it all works fine.

Weird. How can an optical cable just die? I didn't move it.

Yeah, that is weird. Was the cable bent around a really sharp corner or something? perheps the stress caused it to fracture inside. Perhaps it was in a really hot area and the internal cable melted?

If you hook up just one end to the DVD player does the red light come through the cable on the other end?
