Question about Denon AVR-4306 Receiver
Whenever I connect a device such as a TV or Media Center PC to the Optical In ports they do not produce any sound. The other ports seem to work fine. I have tried connecting to 3-4 different optical in ports using a Toslink cable from multiple devices and have no luck. I am setting the Audio In - Digital In Assign to Optical 1 and am attaching the cable correctly. The video from my Media Centre PC comes through the HDMI cable fine and works with RCA jacks. Is there another setting besides Digital In assign I need to make or do you think it is a hardware problem?
If your TV has an HDMI input, hook up the PS3 w/an
HDMI cable to the TV. This will give you a high def picture (set up the
PS3 to output the max resolution your TV displays). That will take care
of the video side.
Next hook up an optical cable from the PS3 to the receiver. In the PS3 menu, you have to change the audio settings to output the sound via the optical cable.
Finally to get sound out of the receiver to the speakers, you have to setup the receiver source input. For example if you setup the PS3 to play thru "VCR" input, then you have to make sure the VCR input is setup to use either optical 1 or optical 2 for sound (whichever one you have the optical cable plugged in from the PS3).

It won't let you assign the same input twice. Check to see that DVD is not already assigned to any other In(x) function.
From the manual:
• You cannot select a specific item more than once.
• You cannot assign the same input source to both “IN (2)” and
“IN (3)”. For example, you assign “CD” to “IN (2)”, “–––”
appears in “IN (3)”.

It's a monitor - no audio source capabilities.
Get TV-related audio from its original source, not the TV or monitor. TV's and monitors are NOT hi-end audio sources.
Cable box, DVD, BD, games: these are potential hi-fi digital audio sources.
