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.

How do I hook up a Pioneer VSX-918V receiver to Sat.Dish box?


For the audio portion, you must have either a digital coax, optical connection or analog L/R composite RCA jacks plugged into the "Sat.audio in" on the rear panel of the chassis. The other end of THAT connection must come from the "audio out/ variable out" from the T.V. or from the Sat.Dish box.

Optical In


There is a control on the receiver for digital input - make sure it is set that way and not in the analog position.

You don't name the model but if there's asettign for audtomatically selecting digital vs analog when both are attached it's losing the digital signal and automatically switching to the analog feed. Find it in the manual. lacking a setting, it prefers digital over analog and will switch to analog on digital signal loss.

Analyze what source(s) are involved and investigate WHY you're losing the bitstream. Optical cables must be run with smooth loose bends so the light strength is not compromised.

Hi,
This is a common problem. Each input will default to analog. Even though you have plugged an optical cable into the inputs of the Receiver, you have to change that input to digital.
For example, if you connect a CD player RCA cables to the Receiver. The receiver will recognize the Analog signal at the CD input. If you unplug the Analog RCA Cables and plug in the Digital optical, the receiver will still be at it's normal default input for the CD player which is Analog. You then have to switch the input, using either the remote or it may be able to be done with the buttons on the front.
As soon as it is changed to Digital, you will get nice sound.
Hope this helps,
Happy New Year,
Mark

I'm a little confused by your use of 'composite' with audio, as in "Does anyone know what would happen if I ran both composite audio and optical audio both to their respective TV/SAT IN input jacks on the STRDE935 ?". What is composite audio?

The manual claims on page 48 that you can't record digital audio out to the analog REC OUT jacks.

http://www.retrevo.com/s/Sony-STR-DE935-Receivers-review-manual/id/387dj981/t/1-2/

I say 'claims' because the engineers or manual writers clearly are not as creative as you are in trying to wring as much utility out if this unit as possible.

I can't find an answer but I would offer this - if you are recording anything though any AVR, as soon as you choose to monitor the audio the digital input is usually disabled.

And I would be curous to hear more about what you're doing and how you finally achieve it.

To output Dolby Digital or DTS audio, you must connect the PS3™ system and the audio device using a digital optical cable and switch to [Digital Out (Optical)] under [Audio Output Settings].

Optical audio not working


Two inputs on this receiver (DBS and DVD) can be either optical or analog... (e.g. RCA type stereo connectors) Use the Analog/Digital button on the remote to set the proper input type for the desired input.

It's a cable or connection.

The Denon apparently has an automatic selector to choose the digital input over the analog input if both are present (my Pioneer does this). The random switching is telling you the digital input is intermittently dropping out and coming back. You don't say if you're using the optical or coaxial digital interface. Coaxial is less prone to connection problems. If you use optical, make sure the ends are clicked in and there are no small radius bends in the cable. Tight curves reduce the optical power. Either way, check the connections and wiggle them to see if you can cause the problem to return.

Digital Audio moved from TV/SAT to DVD/LD


Using the remote control, push the left arrow until display shows Coax1 (or 2, depending on your setup), then push the up arrow to set it to TV/SAT.
Conversely, depending on your setup, you can push the left arrow to display Comp1 (or2) then push the up arrow to set the correct video setting-- DVD/LD I assume.
