    I have my Dish reveiver plugged into my SA-HT900 via optical and starting 2 days ago, when I watch SD tv the audio comes out of the speakers, but when I change to a HD channel, the receiver flashes PCM Fix, Panasonic tech support told me that it is not an error with their receiver but its a problem with the audio coming from the satellite receiver, its been working for 2 years and now all of a sudden it dosent work on the HD channels anymore, any ideas?

Hi, I had a similar problem. I had my cable plugged in to the HT through the optical. All of a sudden it stopped working and the receiver started flashing PCM FIX. The solution is press and hold shift and Digital IN buttons and the setting changes to AUTO from PCM FIX.

Hi,
I solved the problem by shutting off the system so it would reboot. It was to do with the satelite receiver the the Panasonic system.

Cubase studio 5 has deactivated the VST system links due to too many internal errors


In my experience, reasons for seeing errors in VST System Link (VSL) are usually due to the digital signal path (audio and/or data) not being routed properly within the System Link dialog box. If for example, you're using s/pdif between two ASIO 2 compatible audio cards properly (OUT of card #1, to IN of card #2 - then OUT of card #2 back IN of card #1), you also have to set your s/pdif System Link I/O channels in the dialog box to the 'same' channel...If say your options are s/pdif channels 9 & 10 (or whatever they are), you set the I/O's of both computers VSL dialog boxes to either channel 9, or all to channel 10. You of course need to route your digital audio properly within your audio interface! (see your cards documentation on that).
You can test if it's routed properly by 'listening' to audio from each computer, from the other...meaning listen at computer 2, from computer 2 & visa-versa. If you hear the audio thhen it should be correct. But in order to 'hear' the audio (besides proper settings in the VSL dialog box) you must 'also' set those digital audio s/pdif channels within Cubase's VST Inputs/connections. But in 'this case', you use both channels 9 & 10 for your Inputs/Outputs. They also say it's best to place your VSL digital audio channels at the top of the Inputs/Outputs list.
You do not need to keep the s/pdif channels in the VST Inputs/connections to make System Link work however, that's if you need to 'listen' or if you need to test whether it's routed properly.
Getting VST System Link working can seem complicated at 1st, but once you understand, and have it working, you realize it's actually not that hard at all. I recommend taking notes, and writing down what you did to make it work, as you go along the way. That has come in very handy when I need to use it again. Also READ your PDF manual and follow that to the letter!

I have a Bose v20 when i use my Panasonic DVD hd recorder it doesn't sort through if it Dolby or 5.1 it stay on 2.0 i have connected it with hdmi & optical cable


Hi Peter,You will need to check the input menus of both the Panasonic and Bose System and tell each of the units that they can output and accept 5.1 channel Look for wording such as PCM(2 Channel),DTS (5.1), and Dolby digital (5.1) AC3 (5.1). Sometimes inputs can be set up as auto, or analogue. I reckon that one of the two is setup to be fixed on PCM
Good Luck
Hope this helps

Bose PS 3-2-1 II speaker exspansion


Unfortunately this is impossible on the 321 series II systems. There also is no audio output on the media center to send to another amp either. As you may know, the 2 speakers are actually 4 speakers. Each small speaker array has 2 drivers. The 2 on the outside will project rear-channel audio to the sides, so placement of these speakers is important. Honestly, adding speakers would not make this sound very good. If the sound isn't too great as is, make sure you're using digital audio cables (optical or coax) from any external sources like a cable box or Blu-ray player. (if you don't see a Dolby Digital 5.1, DTS 5.1 or PCM 2.0 read-out on front of the media center, you'll know it's not digital. DVDs the exception)

Bose 321 is unable to read 6Channel AC3 Audio. Any way it can read the same?


This is true. The 321GSX will decode Dolby Digital 5.1, DTS 5.1 or PCM 2.0 digital signals from external sources (like most receivers) but will not decode any 6.1 content. AC3, mp3, mp4, wav, aiff all should work from a properly formated CD or DVD (must be -R or -RW format, or commercial), but not multi-channel AC3 content.

PCM 2.0


I had the same problem with my 321 system. The fix is in the cable box settings. You want to change the Digital Out on the cable box..my choices were HDMI....Dolby Digital..and None. Choose Dolby Digital and it will show up on your Bose 321 display. I also have my cable box connected to my bose system via optical digital cable...and a digital coaxel cable from my dvr to my bose. Change that output setting on my cable box took care of the PCM 2.0 problem for me.

PCM means it thinks you have a digital cable hooked between the TV and Bose (most TV's don't have digital audio outs...). You will have to use the menus to change the TV input to use the ANALOG cables (assuming thats what you're using...).
