Cant select coaxial output

Hi, I have the HE90 given to me and im wondering if its broken in some way as i cant seem to select coaxial, i have an Xbox360 and PS3 in the optical but my dvd player only has 1 coaxial and the AMP doesnt seem to let me select it, meaning no sound. I didnt get a manual with it and i have already downloaded one from Panasonics site but that doesnt seem to help and it mostly goes on about the HE70 model. Do you have any ideas? Thanks

Re: Cant select coaxial output

Managed to sort this out, for anyone else intrested you need to do the following: Hold Speakers A and B buttons down until SIZE flashs on the display, then press speaker A until it gets to D-INPUT and then press Speaker B to select optical 1, then use input selector to change it to coaxial.

Hi, my mother has a TEAC CX-200idab micro hi-fi system and some how miss-aligned the din cable when plugging it in to the subwoofer and bent some pins on the lead. The pins were straightened and...

Why don't you stick with the original problem - the cable. Get an ohmmeter and test each lead for continuity end-to-end. Bent sometimes equals broken.

I cant get all 5 speakers to work without turning it to 5 stereo enhanced

Tv and Radio is usually only 2channel stereo. Try a dvd with optical or coaxial output.

Hi. I write from spain. I have the blu-ray LG

Have you tried the another optical cable? They don't tolerate dirty connections or small-radius bends in their routing. THAT (and the expense of optical cables) is why I always choose coaxial connections when possible.

I have an avr 3200 can it use 2 coaxial inputs and how good is the sound quality compared to newer avrs

Denon being one of the best names in the biz and this being an upper-crust modfel, I'd say anyone without a 'golden-ear' would be hard pressed to t\distinguish its sound from any other amplifier in existence.

The Denon site doesn't list and AVR-3200, but the AVR-3300 has 1 coaxial digital audio and 3 optical digital audio inputs.

If you're looking to run multiple coaxial devices and there aren't enough inputs this is what I do...

Helpful hint: Coaxial digital audio cables can be joined using an RCA cable splitter so they can share a given input or distribute a given output to multiple places. You just have to remember to have only the DESIRED units turned on when sharing or there will be digital confusion on the buss and it will result in silence or horrendous noise.

I cant make the coaxial cable work with surround sound

Coaxial cable does not support 5.1 dolby surround sound. You could try setting the unit to Stereo Output instead. Also you could use RCA cables instead.

My receiver will not change to digital play ? the text on the receiver is ''analog only''


A little more information about the make and model of your amplifier would make it much easier to tell you exactly what button where to press on your amplifier.

But I am sure I can point you in the right direction.

Analog only means that although you have connected your DVD player or Settop box to your amplifier on the digital coaxial input you have not yet setup all that needs to be setup.

Start by checking that you have enabled the digital coaxial output on you DVD player. You can set the following if it is available:
1: Select your Digital output to ON
2: Dolby Digital setting must be Dolby digital
3: MPEG switched to MPEG, not PCM
4: Select 96Khz/24bit or higher data transfer on coaxial cable.
Note - all these setting might not be available depending on the manufacturer.

Now you will already know the input switching on the amplifier - so select DVD.

Now to activate the coaxial port you must look for a button named "input mode" either on the amplifier itself or on the remote.

Press this until the amplifier says Digital.

Now get ready for great sound.

Hope this helps!

Pioneer vsa e06

depends what audio outputs you have on the sky box,analogue (two phono usually red for right channel and white left channel)in which case just use phono leads to the phono inputs,Optical(toslink),connect an optical cable from the output to the optical input on the dvd channel of the pioneer,coaxial (spdif)connect to spdif input on the laser disk input of the pioneer,dont connect to the attenuated spdif.In the unlikeley event of the sky box not having any audio outputs,just use the outputs from the tv to the pioneer.The optical digital input gives the best quality on the vsa eo6

If the sub has a volume control, turn it down then turn up the volume on the amp to the very high volume you mentioned. If it still has very low muffled sound, then we know the problem is about the amp.
