Question about Audio Players & Recorders
Have a look at the manual for your AV receiver, you may find that you can change the digital output format between DTS mode and PCM(audio) mode. It needs to be in PCM(audio) mode for your CD recorder to be able to record digitally. If that doesn't solve it I can only suggest recording in analogue mode, i.e. taking a stereo analogue signal from your receiver to the analogue inputs of your CD recorder.

Welcome To Fixya.
your recorder is one that requires audio blanks (and I suspect that
it is) the standard computer store blanks won't work. The audio blanks
have a pre-recorded track that the recorder looks for. However I would
expect that it wouldn't let you get far enough to try, but would
simply tell you that it wasn't a recordable blank and spit it out.
Does the manual say anything about this?
There are only a few companies that actually make recordable CD blanks
(and I-Mation isn't one of them). All the name brands buy blanks from
one of the few makers, and, given where they're sold and for what
application, they buy from the cheapest source, and may very well
change sources every few months to get the best price. So what appears
to be the same make and type of blank that you buy today that you
bought a few months ago (and which worked) may not work now.
You really just have to experiment, buy from a local dealer, and not
be afraid to return the package of blanks if you try a few and they
don't work. I've never had a problem returning an opened pack of CD-Rs
to Best Buy or Micro Center. Comp USA is a bit fussier about returns
so I don't buy anything there that I expect that I might not want to
It might be worth calling a real media supplier, telling them what
machine you have, and ask them if they know what blanks work well in
it. They may be willing to send you a couple of samples. Don't be
afraid to ask. Media Supply and Cassette House (the obvious web sites)
are friendly folks who sell enough product to have a good sense of
what works, or is likely to work, with what.
