    I already had the manual on my computer. There is not an optical option on my receiver. If there is I cant figure it out.

Yes, you must use the setup menu and assign the optical input to the input you are using. Some receivers have a "input mode" switch. If this one does, you only ned to press it until it says "optical". If you have a owners manual, it will decribe all the settings that need to be made to accomplish what you need.

If you do not have one, I have uploaded one to my website for you do have. It will only be there for a limited time before I remove it, so get it quickly. You need Adobe Reader to read this, so if you don't already have iton your computer you can download it free here:

Here is the link to the owners manual:

I would appreciate a "FixYa!" rating for this free information and manual. Let me know if I can be of any further help.

    Since you have given me a bad rating for trying to help you I will no longer offer you any help, I did find find the answer you need. You should consider not giving people a bad rating when they are only offering help to you (help that is free of cost). I have better things to do with my time than to help people who are not appreciative of FREE help.

    Sorry for being a little upset over the rating, I guess that they do not tell people how the ratings effect the person getting rated. For future reference, the "FixYa!" is the rating for helping people solve their problem or if it gives them the information they need to solver their problem or make the proper decision on what to do about their problem. The "helpful" rating is a good rating, but it does pull down an experts score when they have a high rating such as mine. "The thanks for trying" is a very bad rating that pulls down anybodys score unless the are already below 50%. That is a rating that is for somebody helping, but not offering anything useful. I won't offer help if I can't offer something useful, just to avoid that rating. The "Inaproppriate" rating is just that, inapropriate, nothing to do with the problem or just really bad information that causes a problem. You must be careful who you believe around this place. I have seen many experts who claim to know about things and give answers that are not only bad sometimes, but even dangerous. I pride myself on my knowledge and ability to help people with their problems, and only do this as a service to others, a way of giving back. Sometimes I get a little upset witha bad rating when I know I have given the correct answer. Sometimes the correct answer is to take the equipment to a service center. Most people do not want to hear that though.

    Your answer:

    Check page 18, 19, and 20 (page numbers in adobe reader in the menu bar, page 16,17, and 18 on the document itself) of the owners manual . It describes exactly how to set the digital inputs. It even has a diagram of the front of the receiver with the buttons you need to push labeled.

    It is possible that your manual is different from the one I put online at my website, since you could not find the answer in yours and it is in the manual I uploaded. At least give it a look.

    Here is a diagram of the front of your unit withth e "input digital " button pointed out. Also read about how to assign the digital inputs. The factory default for optical is the CD input.

I would like to hook up my amp to my pc or laptop what extensions do i use and what setting do i put it on to receive sound? It's a JVC RX-884V

If you computer has only analog audio outputs, you could use one of the audio components input , turntable, cassette or CD player input, for this you'll need a cable called " Y ", it's called this way because its shape, in one end you have two white and red RCA plugs which are connected to amplifier, in the other end you have a 3.5mm stereo plug that connects to your computer audio output, preferable the line audio output. If you have digital audio outputs from your computer, you can use the coaxial or optical inputs, the first requires a digital coaxial cable RCA plug both ends and the second an optical fiber Toslink cable.

I plugged my PS3 into the receiver using a digital optical audio cable. I plugged it into the DVD plug but there is no sound coming from the speakers. The red light comes out of the end going into the...

Looking into the optics is a bad idea, for one. Did you type this using your remaining good eye ;-)

Light is a carrier, it is NOT audio.

Have you assigned tha toptical "DVD" connection to DVD?

Just for laughs, try the optical cable in each input.

Make sure the optical cable has no small-radius bends as that reduces its light.

Is your PS3 sending audio out of its optical cable?

You have to configure your DTV input to use optical audio instead of analog dtv audio (red/white plugs). Input assignment should be described in the manual. Come back to me if you have still problems with it.
