No digtal audio with fiber optic jack

I tried swaping the fibe cables in the back and still no audio. there is no red light out of the cable from the amp. I looked in the back of the amp and noticed there was no red light. I have audio in analog mode just not in digital. I also tried several devices (DVD and X-box) and different cables. It was working and just stopped one day. I have a feeling that the fibre transciever is gone. any ideas? anyone have a schematic with parts list? thanks for your time Richard

Hook up a digital audio coaxial cable to it (not the old ones with the pin in the middle that always bends, the new one that looks like an rca cable except its orange instead of red/white/yellow). If it still doesnt play sound then your receiver is probably in analog mode. If it does play sound then its the fiber optic input.

Fault finding

Are you connecting the computer through regular RCA ( the ones that are red and white) cables? Do you have in the computer an audio output with a little red light that says "optical"?, try the optical output with the corrsponding (optical fiber) cable.

How can I connect my TV on an audio tuner?

Depending on the make and model, you probably have several options. Check the connection sockets on the back of the TV, and look for one of the following:

1. "Audio Out" may have two RCA plugs labeled L and R, for basic stereo sound. These may be colored red and white, and have corresponding plugs on the back or your audio tuner, labeled "In." Use a red and white plugged audio RCA cable to connect them.

2. Alternately "Audio Out" may have what appears to be a headphone jack. Audio cables are available that have the 3.5mm plug on one end and RCA plugs on the other (called a Y-splitter:1 mini-plug/2 RCA plugs.) The RCA plugs will connect to the back of your audio tuner.

3. "Digital Audio Out Optical" is a conection that uses a fiber optic cable. If you have an optical connection on both the TV and tuner, you can use an optical audio cable to connect them.

If you need to buy an audio cable, they are available at your local electronics store, or online at sites like Amazon, here:

Any one of these options will work. The optical cable solution provides higher quality sound, but is more expensive, and unless you have the proper peripheral equipment (like speakers positioned for surround sound) you might not notice the difference anyway. Good luck!

Yamaha rx-v365 plugged in the hdmi from cable box

You have to configure your DTV input to use optical audio instead of analog dtv audio (red/white plugs). Input assignment should be described in the manual. Come back to me if you have still problems with it.

Im having an issue with my Apple Macbook's audio

why use windows7? you paid for your macosx that comes with your macbook and mind you that macosx is a very powerful operating system and way better than windows. i suggest you use the macosx. you'd be amazed on how easy it is to use. i myself am a mac user and i assure you you'll never have to worry with viruses again. anyway, if you insist to use the windows7 i think the problem there is the driver for your audio. you might need the bootcamp driver on the cd that came with your macbook. try installing the audio driver and i am almost certain this will work. the red light shining in it is the laser used with fiber optic cables. your macbook is equipped with an optical audio port if you wanted a digital output going to your sound system (if it supports optical inputs).

I want to set up my surround sound i need to know what the cable looks like for digital in and video in looks like is it a fiber optic

That is called a TOSLink cable, it is indeed fiber optic. It is for digital audio only, video is carried by HDMI (which also carries digital audio), component video cables, S-video cable, coaxial cable, or RCA jacks.

For your surround sound from a DVD player, connect your digital audio from the DVD to the receiver's input, then the video out from the DVD to the receiver's input. Now the video out from the receiver goes to the TV and the surround sound should now be coming through your speakers. Post again in this thread if you need more help or explanation.

KS3102 Digital Optical Input Problem

What I did was turn on the system, don't put in any dvd in, or select an output 1 or 2. Press Menu on the remote, the display on the system display, not on tv should show Speaker, and other options. Select Input, select the one you want to use as the Optical Sound by press enter, then it will ask you on the system display input or optical sound input. Select optical input and press enter it will then say saved. You can then hit exit til goes back to where the display is back on main screen, or just wait til it exit by itself.
