Question about Kenwood VR-616 Receiver
Receiver cuts out periodically b/c it is auto detecting for dolby digital. Have it running from xbox 360 with an optical cable.
SOURCE: kenwood vr-5900 no sound
Check you settings on the receiver. get into the menu of the unit and check the "Audio" settings. if you can choose by specific input, select "Digital" otherwise, select "Auto" that should correct the problem. If you still have a problem, post a comment and I can help you troubleshoot some more.

Check the manual for "Volume offset" at the input mode. I'll pull the pdf on the unit, If I find it, I will send the instructions. Hope this helps

Make sure your source is playing something that has been recorded in dolby digital, not all dvd's and tv boxes transmit dolby digital. what is your source?

If you would like to use high definition audio decoding, connect the HDMI from the blu ray player to the receiver. If that it not an option for you due to lack of equipment such as an additional HDMI cable to go from the receiver to the television for the video portion of the signal, then connect your optical cable again. After the optical cable is connected, make sure the Dolby Digital decoding is enabled on the receiver, and that the media you are playing also has a version of 5.1 surround sound. Then, enter the setup menu of the player (which I suspect this is actually where the problem might reside in your case) and make sure that Dolby Digital and DTS are not set to "downmix." Dolby Digital should be set to output Dolby Digital and so on and so forth...hope this helped.

Sell this receiver to someone that is not a friend of yours....$50 or best offer...take $20 cuz that's all it's worth. I had one, and it's not worth much more than the box it was shipped in.
