Good Morning Pulpy
First things first,
1) did you have a digital Sound Card?
2) did you install all drivers on Sound Card? and set to Digital Audio?
3) your speakers are analog? or Digital Input?
do a speaker test and see if center spk. work..again.
good Luck

I have connected to my 2311: HDMI 1: Oppo BDP 83 HDMI 2: Denon DVD 1740 HDMI 3: Apple Mac Mini Issue: The Mac Mini works fine and I have audio and video through the receiver, but for the BD and DVD only...

You have to check the digital audio assignment of you AVR for HDMI 1 and HDMI 2. There is three options for the digital audio for HDMI 1 and HDMI 2. You can set it as optical ,coaxil, or the HDMI itself. In you receiver the assignment may be in optical input or in coaxial input for the two HDMI inputs.

1. Go to the system setup
2. Select input setup
3.Select input assignment.
4. Select all the three input ,you are using as HDMI

How do you connect a coaxile cable wire to nec plasma tv that has no coaxile connection plug.

You need to have a decoder box from a over-the-air (DTV), cable or satellite provider that has an HDMI, "S" video, composite video, VGA or component video outputs to connect to the TV's input. The coaxial cable only plugs into the decoder box. Apparently your TV doesn't have a tuner for coaxial RF.

Hi yes i have the jvc RX-8030v and i have a issue with the digital audio in! My dvd toshiba RD-KX50 player does not have a digital coaxil out it only has digital optical out! But on the back of the jvc...

Read you manual, there is a page with a matrix of the audio in selectiosn that can be made for coaxial and optical on each input. Then you have to go into setting button on the right side of the unit and the "push set" knob to change the inputs for the digital audio.
My problem is, I had this all working and went to change the inputs around to add a optical DVD changer and now niether of my optical inputs are working any more. Analog is still fine.

Hi! It would just be easy. Just prepare RCA cables and connect the cables to the tv and satellite receiver. Link the TV and satellite audio output to the BOSE audio input. Good luck and have a good one!

On our Durabrand DVD/Vcr Combo, I get picture, but no sound..I'm using a S video as conectors!

S video connector is used only for video, you need to connect the audio separately via the RCA audio connectors or via digital coaxial or optical connector.

You can read more on S video standard here:

Also see the related topics on audio, maybe you should consult the user manuals for your dvd unit and the amplifier that you use to get more info, but normally the sound can be connected via these connectors on the rear panel of dvd units:

- main left and right analog signal out RCA connectors (2 channel stereo signal - amplifier set to analog signal)

- main left and right, sub, center, surround left and right analog signal out connectors (multichannel surround signal - amplifier set to analog signal)

- coaxial digital signal out RCA connector (a single cable that takes the stereo or surround signal to the amplifier in a coded digital form - you need to set the amplifier to the digital signal mode to enable this kind of signal)

- optical digital signal out connector (same as the coaxial digital output, the difference is that the signal is in the form of light pulses instead of electrical pulses - the amplifier should be set to the digital signal mode as well)

Hope this helps somehow - if it doesn't, post me some feedback, perhaps a brief description of the units that you want to interconnect...

Input signals Marantz SR4003

There are four digital connectors on the back of the unit: 2 optical and 2 coaxial. They are marked a s 1 2 3 4. 1 and 2 are optical, 3 and 4 - coaxial. Also you have front optical connector marked as F.
You can connect 5 digital sources to your receiver. For example, connect your DVD to input 2 (optical) by optical cable and connect your DSS to input 3 by coaxial cable. Assign DVD to digital 2 and DSS to digital 3 in input setup menu.

Lens error in S3IS

This is probably THE single most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here:

PCM 2.0

I had the same problem with my 321 system. The fix is in the cable box settings. You want to change the Digital Out on the cable choices were HDMI....Dolby Digital..and None. Choose Dolby Digital and it will show up on your Bose 321 display. I also have my cable box connected to my bose system via optical digital cable...and a digital coaxel cable from my dvr to my bose. Change that output setting on my cable box took care of the PCM 2.0 problem for me.

Digital optical from DVD player produces no audio

Hi, It sounds like your receiver is still looking for audio on the coaxial connection, rather than the optical.

1. Make sure the optical connection is between your DVD player and the LD/DVD Optical In on the back of your receiver.
2. If you have a monitor connected to the receiver to show the on-screen display, click Setup from the main menu, click Input Mode, then, next to LD/DVD choose Optical. It may be set to coaxial, analog or auto.

Alternatively, choose the input source on the front of your receiver (LD/DVD), then press Input Mode button (bottom right, near the input selector) till it displays Digital Optical.

If all else fails, reset the receiver by:
1. Turn off the receiver
2. Hold down DISPLAY and PANEL UP/DOWN buttons and press power.
3. All Clear should appear on the screen.

Use caution, however, as this will erase all the settings in your receiver.
