No. The Toslink cable would only carry the audio portion and not the video. That's why the HDMI cable and it's related firmware were created. HDMI can pass both video and digital audio. For more information, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. Thank you.

Dear alex_tkachev, Sat 2-14-2009 1:34am EST (USA)


I've just spent 20 minutes @ http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PUSA/ and let me tell you I am not impressed! I saw a lot of links to order repair parts and/or repair service plus the site was very slow to react and gave me an error on downloading the manual!

ANYWAY....I was trying to find out, unsuccessfully I might add, if your Pioneer DVD is also a recorder! Is it?
I have an RCA 500 watt Home Theater and I can sympathize with you on the complications of the remote!
I know with my system the DVD can be playing but muted while I listen to the radio or the radio can be muted while listening to the DVD.
MAYBE you muted the radio when in the DVD mode so it may be as simple as going back to your remote getting in DVD mode and un-muting the radio as your system may be storing the mute in your remote even when you unplug the reciever!

I'd try taking the batteries out of the remote for at least a minute before doing anything else.

Hope This Is Helpful!

The receiver that came with your speakers should have a digital input for a dolby digital source. On the back of the receiver it's probably labled "digital coax" or it could be an optical as well.
Your new Blu-Ray has these outputs on the back. it's as simple as getting the correct cable and selecting that input on the receiver.
To make sure you get the right cable, look at the back of the receiver, and the blu-ray. Look for the digital input on the receiver, and get a cable that matches that. It's either a single RCA cable, or an optical.

So when done, you will have the HDMI or Component out from the Blu-Ray going to the TV, and the digital audio going to the receiver. To hear the sound through the receiver, just go to that input on the receiver.

The charge had reset the settings in the unit to default. I went through the set up routine again and reset my settings to digital feed and the problem was solved.

Just guessing - for a considerable time amplifier output stages have often used encapsulated modules rather than discrete components. Like everything else these arrive in different qualities.

High quality amplifiers tend to use higher quality output modules - the best have built in overload protection and thermal shutdown and I expect that could be what is happening, something inside the amp is cooking and when it becomes too warm it shuts down.

I suggest you take it to the repair shop before the problem becomes really expensive.

The blinking indicator is letting you know there is a defect in the power supply that will have to be fixed before operation can continue.
