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.

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.
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.
Make sure you have set blu ray player out put to bitstream,if you have set to pcm for hd master audio and dolby true you need to have a amp to decode this and hook up with a hdmi cable.If your amp has hdmi in and out but no high def audio you may still get multi channel audio.
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.
Hi, It sounds like your receiver is still looking for audio on the coaxial connection, rather than the optical.
1. Make sure the optical connection is between your DVD player and the LD/DVD Optical In on the back of your receiver. 2. If you have a monitor connected to the receiver to show the on-screen display, click Setup from the main menu, click Input Mode, then, next to LD/DVD choose Optical. It may be set to coaxial, analog or auto.
Alternatively, choose the input source on the front of your receiver (LD/DVD), then press Input Mode button (bottom right, near the input selector) till it displays Digital Optical.
If all else fails, reset the receiver by: 1. Turn off the receiver 2. Hold down DISPLAY and PANEL UP/DOWN buttons and press power. 3. All Clear should appear on the screen.
Use caution, however, as this will erase all the settings in your receiver.
