Question about Zenith XBS344 System
There is no sound playing from the reciever to the speakers. I can see a picture and hear sound through the television speakers but not any surround sound when a DVD is played or the tuner.
A few questions... What components are involved? How are they connected? Can you hear sound from the speakers for any other input device i.e. radio, cd, vhs, etc.? I suspect that there is an issue with the way the system is connected. I have the Surround sound output from my DVD player connected to the digital surround sound input on my reciever. I'm using digital coax cable (looks like a "normal" RCA cable), not the optical fiber connection. I had to buy a special cable for the digital surround sound. A normal RCA cable would not work. I don't know why. If you're using a similar connection, that could be your issue. make sure that the output and inputs you're using are compatible. A digital surround sound connection (in or out) can't be connected to an analog connector (in or out). Remember, Digital to Digital with a Digital capable cable; Analog to Analog with an Analog capable cable. If this is not your issue, post back here with more info and we'll see what we can figure out.
