Question about Panasonic SA-XR45S 5.1 Channels Receiver

1 Answer

DVD optical/TOSLINK input no longer working

I have had the SA-XR45 for four years now and love it. Just yesterday it stopped recognizing the optical DVD input. It's as if nothing is plugged in. The other optical inputs are all working.

I tried everything I can think of. I plugged the DVD optical into the DVR input and it works fine. 6.1 sound comes on right away. I also used stereo RCA audio inputs from the DVD played into the DVD input on the receiver (just in case it was not recognizing anything audio when switched to DVD) and those work as well.

What can I possibly do to find out what is wrong?

If it's only the DVD input, and you had tested it systematically, like you'd stated, then the input connector could be loose or defective.

Connect with componet cables.


The only digital audio input for this TV will be via the HDMI input. Of course, even with HDMI in, you're only going to get a simple stereo output from the TV. You can use the analog L & R audio inputs for a very similar sound from the TV speakers.

The digital multi-channel audio (Dolby Digital, THX, 5.1, 7.1, etc) encoded in the program should be connected to a suitable multi-channel amplifier with either a TOSLINK (optical), RF (coaxial) or HDMI cable for theatre-like sound. This can be done by (a) cabling from the source (DVD, BluRay Disk, Set Top TV Tuner, etc.) directly to a multi-channel amp and speakers, or (b) from the HDMI output of these devices (DVD, BluRay Disk, Set Top TV Tuner, etc.) into one or both of the TV's HDMI inputs. This will provide only stereo sound output from the TV speakers. You should connect the TV's TOSLINK optical "Digital Output" jack with an optical cable to the amplifier's TOSLINK optical input jack to obtain theatre sound.

To listen to the program shown, you would select the amplifier input assciated with the optical, RF or HDMI input that is connected to the source (DVD, BluRay Disk, Set Top TV Tuner, etc.) if connected directly. If the TV HDMI input(s) are used, they are output to the TV optical output and should be connected to the amplifier optical input. The amp input associated with the optical input should be selected to hear the program with theatre-like sound.

As long as your 50 in. LG TV has an Optical Out, and your DVD surround sound receiver has an Optical Input, you can connect the 2 using a Digital Optical TOSlink Cable.

Sony STR-DE925 auto-decode has worked fine for years. All DVD/PS3/Cable is attached to TV via HDMI and inbound audio from HDTV is optical fiber (TOSLINK). Up until today, this has worked perfectly, i.e.,...


OK, so with more troubleshooting, I was able to eliminate the problem with my DE925. It was actually the Vizio HDTV that was causing the problem, as I decided to route the optical audio from my DVD and PS3 directly to the same TOSLINK port on the DE925 and auto-decode worked. It was not the fiber-op cables either. This HDTV was a less-expensive 720p 32" model anyway, so I am not too concerned with the optical out working on it as I can run up to four TOSLINK connections in to the receiver.

Digital Optical input on receiver doesn't work


You have set the TV and receiver up to use the optical output? Both should have settings that can switch the sound through the optical on or off.
Set it to Dolby Digital for example!
