I have a Yamaha HTR 6080 (just purchased) connected to Toshiba DVD player (1 yr old) and Sony multi-disc CD player (old). I can get auido from all analog sources - radio, analog DVD, analog CD. I cannot get the digital connections to work. I have purchased a new cable just in case - no joy. Any ideas?

Re: No sound using digital coaxial connections
Couple of possibilities:
Press Audio Select on front of unit until "Analog" changes to "coax/opt"
When you select the component connected to the MULTI CH INPUT jacks as the input source (see page 38), this unit automatically
turns off the digital sound field processor, and you cannot select sound field programs.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

You said "...on reciever cd out in the audio box..." but it should the reciever IN that you connect to. Also is the BlueRay player capable of playing CD's ? When you press play on the sony remote, do the seconds start counting on the screen ? (ie: is it playing, but no sound is coming out?)

If you are not getting sound on "Any" input except "multi channel" you have a bad DSP chip in the receiver.In short, you need a new receiver, it's a 500.00 repair. If you get sound on "All" inputs except "DTV/CBL" You need to get into the main menu of the Yamaha and select audio, toggle to input, then DTV/CBL and select "Auto". If you still do not get audio, it would be due to the version of HDMI software in your receiver. If it's under warranty, Yamaha will update hardware and software for you at N/C. If it's out of warranty, use digital coaxial or optical as your audio input for TV and run your HDMI directly to the TV. (The repair for this too would run 250-350) I hope I've covered all the possibilities. If you need further help, post a comment and I can help you more.
You do not give much information to work with. However, if you purchase a stand alone DVD player (I have a personal weakness for Sony, and only went with the Bose because of their sound reputation) make sure it has either optical out or coaxial digital which you can connect to one of the inputs at the back. Just note that in the Bose settings you have to assign Optical to the input you are using if you use optical. Optical and Coaxial audio are digital so you will not compromise the sound quality much.
It is not clear what type of CDs you are playing whether they are copies or originals. If copies how are they being burnt to disc, etc?
If you can't use one of the Optical Digital Audio INPUTs on the HTR-6030, why don't you just use the Analog Audio Out on the HDD and an Analog Audio IN on the HTR-6030? It has one actually marked 'DVR', but any one would do.
1) Check your DVD player make sure it is set to Dolby Digital or Optical Out or even AUTO (if applicable)
2) Check the Input source to the receiver say if you are using DVD on the receiver make sure the digital setting is set to either Optical or Auto
Is Yamaha HTR-640 a receiver? Try HDMI from PS3 to receiver or Sony HDTV. If HDMI from PS3 to receiver the you need and HDMI from receiver to out Sony HDTV. You could connect everything to receiver and HDMI out to HDTV. You can not have an HDMI cable AND an optical cable coming out of the PS3, only one or the other.
