Re: Marantz SR-18 NO Sound No Data error for DSS...
You need to check the connection of the lead that carries the audio from the DSS to the amp, move it to one of the other channels ie vcr and see if it can be heard when set to and switched to vcr. Then we know if we are dealing with the Amp or the source..

check the fuse output line in the speaker! or maybe you are in protect mode! checkout the speaker, maybe you have defective speaker, thats why your unit in protect mode, thats why no sounds coming out!
I will interperate this as: "So you want to play sound through your Marantz SR-4200?"
You need to clarify what sort of system setup you have, however i will put down a few ways to wire this up to your TV.
If you have a Set-top-box that gets the TV Channels, that is where the sound comes from. If you have a TV that plugs straight into the wall, you will have to get the sound from the TV. Grab a RCA Stereo cable - (White and Red heads, if you don't know what they look like, Google it).
If you are unclear about this, i have tried to make a diagram down the bottom to explain how this is to work. What you will do is Take the sound from the Set-Top-Box or TV and reroute it into your fantastic Marantz SR-4200.
1. Plug Red Plug into the the Red Slot, and White into the White on the back of your set-top-box or TV Out (if you get it around the wrong way, the speakers will be reversed.)
2. Plug the other end of the cable into the back of your Marantz SR-4200 in the TAPE input or VHS input as they are analog signal inputs. Turn on Marantz SR-4200 and turn it onto Tape or Vhs (depending on where you plugged it in).
[Set-Top-Box or TV out] >-------> into >------> [Marantz SR-4200]
If you still don't get it, then try searching You-Tube for a guide "Plug Tv into Stereo". I myself couldn't turn up anything useful
the best thing to do is a code search per the directv manual and hope the Marantz powers off when you find the code.
If it turns off, you have won half the battle. Save the code and try turning the Mar back on.
The issue is that these universal satellite remotes are very limited on there funtionality with audio systems.
Keep in mind that if you find a code that turns it on & off, you will probably be limited volume only. If you get those three functions, you are very happy and call it done.
Hope this helps.
This goes for all sounds systems and not only Marantz.
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.
