If you are using HDMI you may have to tweak your tv to use audio from other sources through the setup menu.

Technics SA-DX940 Digital optical audio input


When you say you have sound from the BD prior to disc load... where (TV and/or receiver)? Initial wake-up audio is usually 2-channel.

Describe the optical audio connection input to the receiver and any other audio paths that are attached.

Do you have other multichannel sources you could use to test this, like a cable TV box?

There's an obscure setting in the receiver called PCM Fix (on Page 21). Give that a look.

Digital optical output for technics 5.1 surround sound receiver


I went to the HDTV plasma manual. It stated the only way the digital optical audio output would work (from this TV) was to go to the menu, select audio and turn off the TV speakers. Basically, it had nothing to do with the technics receiver.

8' Optical Cable from TV to Receiver and Signal is Breaking Up


Before you buy anything try checking the AUDIO Settings in the Menu of Each Device (Mostly TV) and see if they are set to PCM or BITSTREAM. HDMI is mostly set to PCM while Optical is generally Bitstream. The TV may be set to the opposite of what it needs to be. I would try to get PCM to work first cause it is Better, If not then set what you can to Bitstream and it should pass. Also check in TV Menu for SOUND OUT or AUDIO OUT or SPEAKERS. Some TV's have a problem passing Audio through when they are already Outputting them to it's own Speakers! I Hope this Helps out!

No sound


I had the same problem on 3/21/09...I found it was the PS3 settings. I had to go into the visual settings (not sound) and change the linear sound to optic digital...but I also had to purchase a digital optical cable...plug everything into your tv instead of the receiver and then hook up the digital optical cable from your tv to the receiver. A it will work and b it is a better sound quality than that of the HDMI cable.

Technics SA-DX930. I ran digital optical cable from the TV to the receiver using the tv/dss mode. It worked well for 4 months. It stopped working. I can get sound out of the receiver and speakers using...


If the only thing not working is the optical input, it is possible that the optical converter is defective. Without seeing the actual unit and testing the IC, I can't say for sure. If you have test equipment, let me know and we will attempt to track this down.

CONNECTING MY TV TO MY STEREO


Make sure the output in your tv menu is set to external speakers. Any digital optical cable, or RCA jacks hooked up properly from the TV's out put to the receivers input should work just fine. Take your time, retrace your steps, and make sure each cable is in the correct input/output. And make sure the receiver and TV are on the proper settings. Good Luck, and thanks for using FixYa!
