Had system for many years with no problem. Just got a Topfield PVR and decided to use the coax digital input for the audio (as it was not being used). Connected it up and assigned coax to spare channel on denon 1602. No Sound.
Checked that coax output on Topfield was working - it was.
Tried a different spare channel on Receiver - no sound.
Tried an already used channel (DVD) with coax input - no sound.
Changed DVD input back to optical and now it will not work.
Reset the microprocessor as detailed in manual - this is where it gets interesting. The default setting both the optical and coax worked with the default setting (ie optical assigned to the TV input and the coax assigned to the DVD input). However the sound out was only Dolby Pro-logic, not DTS or Dolby digital.

Do you have a optical/coaxial input on your system? Eg: cable, TV.I use a optical input on my Yamaha ( cable, satellite ). Look to see if there is a optical/coaxial output on your pvr, there should be. Use ether the optical or coaxial output from your pvr and connect it to the cable (satellite ) optical/coaxial input on your receiver. The manual that came with your Shaw PVR should explain how. You will get 5.1 surround if available on certain channels.I prefer optical over coaxial myself, but they both work well.If you don't have optical/coaxial inputs on your receiver, you will have to use RCA cables, analogue out on cable box, to tape input or aux on your receiver. You will not get surround sound, just stereo. But it's better than nothing.
just bought a Topfield trf-2460 PVR and I have got everything working except the remote control (that came with pvr) sound funtion. I can record and playback with the audio working fine but even after setting the TF remote control to work on the TV funtion, it just doesn't like it, except for the mute button, that and the off function. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Joe
Once you have installed all the cables to the system, you will need to go in to the Yamaha's system settings (see owner's manual) and assign the audio inputs accordingly. The DVD input will need to be set to the optical input # you have selected. Optical and digital coax are not preset in most cases. Once you get to the input selection assign the digital # for DVD and then exit out. You should begin to hear the audio immediately. If not you missed a step. I do this for a living and every unit has its own routine you need to learn.
Enjoy the system
Do you have your TV hooked up, so you can see the AVR-4800 system menu on its screen (if not, see the manual). You need to go down to the digital input menu item where you associate each component with its input source, whether it is coax, optical 1, optical 2, ..., etc.
