Question about Sony STR-DG510 Receiver
I have an optical connection cord from the cable set top box to the DG 510 but get no surround sound out of the system when the input is set at "opt in" from the "input mode". Any suggestions. Thanks.
Did you try it on BOTH the SAT and Video 2 optical ports? Still not working? Could be the Optical cable is bad.
Does your Cable Box also have a coaxial digital ouput? It looks just like a standard RCA connector but says Digital somewhere near it. Try one conductor of a standard audio cable from it to the "DVD" coax connector. Select DVD to hear it.
If it still doesn't work jump into the Cable Box setup to make sure it's output is set up properly.
I would recommend using the coaxial digital option if you have it.
1) The cable isn't special or expensive like the optical cable is; a garden-variety RCA cable works just fine.
2) You have virtually unlimited distance to work with in the house.
3) You don't have to be so darned careful with it as with optical.
