We hooked it up and have no sound

From the Console Settings screen in the System area of the Xbox Dashboard, you can configure the video output of your Xbox 360 console for a widescreen, high-definition TV, determine your audio options, and check your console's serial number and Xbox Dashboard version.
Go to correct section for ... Audio

Change your audio output settings for games from this screen. These audio settings do not affect DVD movie playback. For DVD audio settings, refer to an individual DVD movie's setup screen.

Settings consist of:

  • Analog Output Settings: choose Mono to merge the left and right audio signals so that you can hear all sound through a connection to a monaural TV or monitor; choose Dolby Pro Logic II to listen in normal stereo (no audio surround receiver required) or to listen to Dolby Pro Logic or Dolby Pro Logic II soundtracks from compatible games or other media.

    Dolby Pro Logic consists of four channels of audio: front left/center/right and a monaural surround channel that is mirrored in each of your rear left/right speakers. Dolby Pro Logic II uses digital signal processing to generate 5.0 audio (front left/center/right, rear left/right) from any stereo (left/right) programming, whether from movies, music, or games. Unlike movies and music, however, games are specially encoded with Dolby Pro Logic II decoding in mind.

    To listen in either Dolby Pro Logic or Dolby Pro Logic II surround sound, you must connect your cable's left/right (white/red) RCA connectors to a compatible surround receiver. For more information, see our connection page for the cable you're using:
  • Digital Output Settings: configure this setting only if you'll be using the Toslink optical digital-audio output from a compatible Xbox 360 AV cable (optical digital-audio cable sold separately):

    The default digital-audio setting is Dolby Digital 5.1. If this is your preference, you do not have to make a selection from this screen.

Surround Sound from PS3

Are you getting any sound?

If your marantz amp is part of a home cinema system then depending how old it is will depend on if it will do it automatically.I have just bought a sony surround system and it detects the signal range ie it knows it is being transmitted in 5:1 surround.If you have an old system you may have to do this manually, this should not be diffecult there should be a sound setting.

No sound

Hello, amp-amp!

The first piece of information we need to find out is whether there is any sound from the 360 at all. When you switch menus in the dashboard, do you hear anything?

Do other games have proper sound?

Which game are you trying to play? Some games give the option to alter what sound setup you are using. If your current sound setup does not support 7.1, 5.1 surround sound, etc.. you will not hear anything.

Go to your dashboard.
Press the Right Bumper until you get to the "System" tab. Select "Console Settings".
Select "Audio".
Select "Digital Output".
Select "Dolby Digital".
Any sound now?

And, as with any audio problem, we need to make sure your audio cables are plugged into the proper jacks. What type of a/v output cables are you using on your 360 (i.e. what color are the tips?).

Thanks, reply back with any information you have, please!
