Question about Yamaha HTR-5940 Receiver
I just bought this reciever and the sales guy seemed intelligent when I bought it but it has become apparent that he is not as he portrayed. I have an XBOX 360 connected to my TV and it played DVD's just fine until a couple of days ago. Currently I have the XBOX connected through an HDMI port to the TV. The TV is then connected to the reciever through an optical connection (I was told this would provide the best sound). The reciever has the capability to put out surround sound in 6.1 but for now I have two tower speakers connected providing me with 2 channel sound. This problem started when the XBOX was playing a DVD. I have a great picture but there is no sound coming from the reciever. I can use the TV speakers and they put out sound just fine. I have noticed that the sound that does come out of the reciever has a little "PCM" indicator light when it works but that goes away when I play a DVD and no sound comes out at all (except through the TV speakers). Is this a digital sound problem? Any ideas on how I can fix this so that the DVD's put out sound through the reciever? I would be happy to provide more information if needed. HELP!!
The optical connection on the TV is most likely an input, not an output. You need to connect the Xbox to the receiver, then the TV. If the receiver does not have a HDMI input, use another audio or digital out from the Xbox to the receiver.
