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.

Sony STR-DG510 hook up with BDP-S560 no sound


The Sony manual for this receiver is not wrong, it is just a little misleading.
It does in fact use HDMI but ONLY for the HIGH DEFINITION video portion of the signal, as output from the receiver to your television. High Definition Multimedia interface carries both audio and video, however, your receiver is not decoding the high definition AUDIO portion of it and passing it through the HDMI, nor is it passing any form of multichannel audio through HDMI. So you can see why the receiver is no longer available for sale from the Sony website. The HDMI connection on your receiver is redundant unless you are not using a multichannel audio format, in which case you would be using either the TV speakers or connect an additional audio cable from the TV's "audio out" back into the receiver for external speakers.
All that should be done is use the HDMI cable from your blu-ray player connected directly to your TV. That will give you your picture, and possibly a better one since the receiver will no longer be in the signal path.
Then connect either a coaxial or optical cable from the blu ray player to the receiver for your audio. You will then be able to have Dolby Digital and DTS surround formats.
Your service person was wrong.

No sound coming from Sony Receiver STR-DG510?


Sounds like you are pretty close with this one. If you select fm tuner do you get audio. If not you may have the speakers on the wrong a-b setting. Make sure the audio from your cable box is not muted or turned down.

No surround sound when attaching hdmi to TV


Try running the optical TOSLINK cable from the TV to the receiver. If the TV doen't have a digital optical output, then try going into the menu on your cable box and setting the audio output to the digital optical out. Also check your TV menu and make sure NETCOMMAND is diabled. Some of your newer HDTV have Netcommand that allows the TV to control other devices through the HDMI cable.

Sony Bravia Dav-HDX279W and comcast HDTV Cable box connection.


Like above, use an optical connection (need fiber optic cable) or a coaxial connection (single RCA cable). HDMI might also work, but I personally haven't checked. Connect the audio outs from the cable box to the audio ins on the home theater. The TV will only need a video connection from the cable box, as well as one from the home theater (for DVDs, onscreen menus).

This discussion can help you set up the universal remote.

I think you have to run a separate audio line from the dvd to the 510, because the HDMI is only passive

What port do you have the HDMI from you BD player into on the 510. If you have it on the DVD port then fiber optic will do you no good, the DVD HDMI only supports digital coax, the Video2 HDMI only accepts fiber optic, and there is an extra fiber optic for the Sat input. If your BD player does not have digital coax out, or if you dont want to buy another cable, just move the HDMI from DVD to Video2 on the 510. I am willing to bet you have the BD player plugged into the DVD HDMI port and the fiber optic cable from you BD player to the Video2 fiber input.
