Does any one know how to select the second optical input on this amp? according to the manual if i select CD or DAT as an input it gives the option of choosing the opt input. this is fine as i have one source on the opt 1. But these is no other option i can use to pick the second opt output on.
Re: Onkyo TX-DS939 optical selection problem help!
That coaxial, opt-1 and opt-2 are available only if they are not selected to some other channel. So you have to check if opt-2 is selected to Video-1,2,3,4,5,6,7,CD or DAT. Change that to Analog and then opt-2 is free to another device.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Connect the Panasonic to one of the AV inputs on the Onkyo. Use red white and yellow AV cables. Connect the output from the Panasonic to one of the five AV video inputs on the Onkyo (or use the DVD dedicated input in the Onkyo backpanel). I indicated this option using red arrows. You can use any of the AV inputs or the DVD input at the bottom. Just ensure you do not connect to an output at the back of the Onkyo.
Alternatively use component cables and optical audio input, as indicated using the blue arrows in picture below. Select source and listen surround from the Onkyo.
There are more options. In some case you may decide to connect the DVD video output to TV and the audio to the Onkyo.
Make sure your DVD setting is looking at the right audio inputs. Usually there is a menu option or a button to toggle from analog or digital input. Usually when no-sound but video ok, you have the wrong input-type selected. If you are using 2 RCS's (red/white) then you want ANALOG input mode. If you are usung a single RCA (orange) or a fiber optic input for audio, you want DIGITAL input selected. If digital os selected, make sure you plug into the correct digital input to hear. If it does not work at first, mofe the jack/fiber around into the different inputs untill you hear sound, then you will know which port is associated with the DVD setting. Unless it is self evident feom the menu.
If you get sound on direct mode say from dvd but no sound when you go to dolby make sure you have the right input selected by pressing the digitat input button on the front of the amp,ie if dvd optical out is pluged into amp optical input 1 select this on amp then set audio to prologic2.DVDs through this input will decode to dolby digital/dts.
hope this helps.
Try resetting the amp by leaving it unplugged from the wall overnight, and then fire it up in the morning.
