Unfortunately, any response from RCA on this is not forthcoming as i have been waiting for some months from whichever support group is in place now....What I did do however, as I too wanted to utilize the Optical input for my Blueray player was purchase a Logitech harmony universal remote (or you can borrow one from someone) and setup a new device on the remote with similar function keys. I setup a new device RCA RTD316W which also has a "inputDigital" button. Once this was loaded on the Remote I was able to switch the SAT option on the RTDVD1.

    Had success switching to digital using Directv Universal remote RC64RB. I used A/V2 and tried the codes for RCA "Audio Equipment" in the Directv menu. The third or fourth worked to power it ON! The trick is that it RCA uses different codes to power on, and off, so the code will not turn it OFF, but it will turn it on...so when trying codes, the RTDVD1 needs to be in standby, then when you find the right one, it will power on. Through trial and error I found that pressing the 4, and 5 digit would change the source, then the 3 digit while in SAT mode, toggled the audio source from COAX to OPTICAL to ANALOG. I would figure any of the DIRECTV universal remotes would work this way. I figured out that the 4 changed to DVD mode, and I think 6 changed it to the tuner.

Lg soundbar says no usb


If your not using USB. Switch it to whatever input you are using. Digital ? Analog? Arc hdmi? Whatever way you are feeding your audio to your sound bar. Usually there's a input or source button on the speaker or the remote. My guess is your using digital optical cable?

HI MY XV DV55 DOES NOT SEEM TO BE RECOGNISING OPTICAL INPUT CAN YOU HELP


Have you configured A-1 or V-2 (which ever you are using) to receive optical (the default is analog stereo).
From the manual:
1) switch to A-1 (e.g.).
2) press SYS then SETUP.
3) press < or > until you see 'INPUT' is the display.
4) Use the ^ or v buttons to select input to use (INPUT OPTICAL).
5) Press ENTER to complete the setting.
I would like to do exactly this on my DV55 but I do not have an original remote. My replacement cannot do step 2.

NO OPTICAL SOUND I connected HDMI from reciever to TV, HDMI from PS3 to TV, Optical from PS3 to Receiver (PS3 Sound settings switched to Optical, with Dolby Digital 5.1CH, and Dolby DTS 5.1 selected) ...


Hello,
I think your problem might be at the digital audio setup at the receiver. To fix this, go into the setup under digital audio and make sure that the input that your connected to is set to optical, not analog or coaxial. Example if your plugged into video 1, make sure that the audio setting corresponds to the optical input where your connected. Video 1-optical-1.
Good Luck

Kenwood vrs-6100 receivers optical digital


You want to receive the optical signal from the TV's built in decoder / receiver to play through your Kenwood? Maybe you need to select the digital input. The manual says:

Use the INPUT SELECTOR key (or Input Selector keys)
to select DVD, VIDEO or FRONT AUX.

2 Press the INPUT MODE key.
Each press switches the setting as follows:

1 "F-AUTO": Auto detect
("AUTO DETECT" indicator lights up)

2 "D-MANUAL": Fixed to digital input
("DIGITAL" indicator lights up)

3 "ANALOG": Fixed to analog input *
("AUTO DETECT", "DIGITAL" indicator goes off)

Also check your TV to make sure it is outputting to the optical jack.

Hooking up home theater


Run a regular RCA type audio cable from your TV audio out to your Home Theatre audio in. That is what I have done recently with my Samsung LCD and Home Theater. You then have to put your Home Theater on Aux 1 or Aux 2 to get the sound from TV. Ensure your TV's volume is off.

Hmm. let me see if I get U correctly. you use u'r theater system with a TV and the audio is fed via optical or U have DVD player that you can feed the audio via optical or coax. I think it is the later, if it is U could be having trouble with sound decoding setting of the DVD player itself. It's like mpeg out or PCM out instead of full DTS or 5.1 dolby digital decoding. If this is the case just use u'r dvd remote and check the audio play back settings. If this does not solve u'r problem, pls state u'r set up briefly, so tht I can understand the type of connection u use. Happy troubleshooting Rifaa
