Be sure you are using the DIGITAL connection to the "amplifier" or "Receiver"? This is the OPTICAL connection or the ORANGE colored coaxial connector, they will be labled digital. Be sure also on the DVD player DOLBY DIGITAL AUDIO is ENABLED. Not on the DVD software startup menu, but the DVD PLAYER unit itself. This can be found in the setup menu under AUDIO OPTIONS. If you have the DVD players manual read section Audio selections.

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


Hi

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!

No Dolby Digital through DVD player


Have you configured the digital output settings on the DVD player? You may need to set the digital output format in the DVD player setup menu. If it is set for LPCM then you won't get sound. It has to be set for bitstream and yoou may need to tell the player what output to use.

As you didn't mention the brand of DVD player, I can't really give you any detailed instructions.

Also try using the optical cable that you have connected to the cable box to test it and see if you get any output on that connector. If yyou do then it is a setting in the amp that is not configured properly,

Best of luck

In the PS3 menu, open Settings > Video Settings > BD/DVD Audio Output Format (HDMI) or (Optical Digital) depending on which one you are using. Set the type to to Bitstream (Linear PCM does not send the DD stream through).

RCA RT2280 surround sound mode button wont select 5.1 dolby digital mode.


I had the same problem and this is what I did to fix it. Assuming that all of your equipment is powered on, (tv, blu-ray/dvd, rca receiver) you'll need to go into your dvd players audio menu and select the dolby digital audio.
Once you do this, the digital signal is sent to your receiver from the dvd. The receiver should automatically set itself to the dolby digital preset. If it doesn't, press the surround button until you reach it. I found part of this information here. And the rest was personal experience.
Also, it depends on if the disc format is in dolby 5.1. I hope this helps you.

Problem with Dolby Digital mode


If it is a new DVD that may be a problem, as signal changes may be frustrating this old machine... but it is likely the cabling from the DVD player to the reciever. Are you on the right channels/settings? is the optical cable and digital cable recieving digital output from your DVD player? Try changing those settings and you should be in good shape Thanks! good luck!
