Optical Audio Problems

I'm having issues with my optical audio inputs. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don't work at all. Sometimes they cut in and out. I have tried different cables, and all three optical inputs. I have also tried using 2 different devices (PC and PS3). Everything was fine until one day the sound kept cutting in and out for no reason. Analog inputs work just fine. Do you have any suggestions?

Make sure the cables are not KINKED in any way or twisted up with any other cables or near any HEAT Source.

Yes, you can switch between Coax and Optical inputs, but not using the remote. Press the button "Input" on your HT-R430

SOURCE: mv 8000 input does not switch from optical to analog

U need to reset your parameters.....Goto the  System button and then  press F5.  This will lead you to where you need to press initialize to reset the parameters.  Don't worry it wont delete any of your sounds etc.  I had the same problems.....u will probably have to do it every-time you turn it back on and off.  I think the cause of this is due to it having a previous expansion on it......

SOURCE: Digital Audio Input

On many ht receivers you must enter setup mode and tell it which digital input you are using for each digital source. i.e. you can choose optical for the DVD input and coaxial for CD, and vice versa.

Good Luck,

SOURCE: Wireless headphone connection to multiple components?

Cat,    Splitting an optical output is not recommended.  In fact it would require an optical patch bay, which would be overkill. You could use the headphone output on the front of the Denon AVR3805.    Because this output is behind a door it might be a cleaner looking set up to use the optical output on the top left looking at the back of the unit.  Because those two optical outputs are labeled "optical 3 and 4" they are zone outputs, they should work without having to "map" or patch them internally. The outputs here will be controlled independently as zones from the receiver's remote.      The easiest option looks to be the analog "pre output" located in the middle of the back of the receiver.  The left-most two rca jacks you want to use are labeled "front" and are white over red.  This output will work fine.  Control of the volume will be from the headphone unit and not the receiver.

Try this, although recivers have video pass through, it is not the best option for video to your monitor. Depending on what you have for input/output on your TV/monitor, and, if you can, you should run all your video components directly to TV via(best)HDMI(video and sound) or, component and digital optical(best) or RCA, Then run digital optical out from you TV out to receiver in. You can use your monitors menu to chosse what you view and only have the onr input to you reciever. ASll you have to do then is go through you recievers menu to get the audio. Less connections less hassle. In other words, you would run your sat tuner to tv inputsat or cable, then dvd to dvd, PS3 to video 1 etc., on TV/monitor, then the single audio output to reciever.

Most of the old Sony TVs released before 2007 has an issue with its optical output. only when you use a direct cable connection to its VHF/UHF input, the optical outputs audio. Otherwise, you have to stick on the A/V connection to receive the TV audio though sound system. Please get back to me with the model # of the TV so that I can check whether the TV comes under the category.
Thanks for understanding.

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.

sometimes with cable, satellite, or any dvr, the digital signal actually is intermittent and there is little we can do about it but add an analog audio connection for each device as a backup. per se, and put the receiver in auto input mode. the receiver will utilize the analog signal to fill in where the digital signal fails

Optical audio from cable box to receiver


Do you mean the optical digital audio output from the cable box? This is so you can listen to Digital sound from cable tv broadcast, First go to the cable box remote control, select setup or menu to find audio, then select audio output, check digital audio, not mts or stereo, this should enable to optical output instead of the typical 2 channel red and white left and right RCA analog audio outputs, sometimes different cable boxes vary, but most require you to enable the optical output via the method listed above.

How to Hook up HDMI from Comcast Motarola Cable Box


Connect the HDMI outputs on your various components to the HDMI inputs on your receiver. Connect the HDMI output on the receiver to the input on your TV. HDMI incorporates digital audio, so no need to buy optical audio cables. If your receiver does not have HDMI inputs for all your components, you will need to make a choice. HDMI = Best, component video + optical audio = second best, S-video+ optical audio = third best
