Question about Marantz Audio Players & Recorders
Posted by Anonymous on
Your Sky box might need a firmware refresh. Switch it off at the mains socket. Press and hold down the BACKUP key on the SKY BOX (not the remote). Switch on at the mains and keep the backup key pressed down until the TV shows an info screen that the box is updating.
Allow the box to complete the cycle.
Try your system again.

I suppose pcm light means that the pcm mode is turned on (pcm meaning pulse code modulation), in other words, the unit was switched to digital signal, so if the digital rca or optical TV input on your reciever is not connected to anything, then you're not getting any signal into the reciever in digital mode. You probably just need to switch the unit back to analog mode (see if there is a button that says something like digital/analog, pcm/analog, optical/coax or similar, try pressing it, see if there is any change).
I might just be totally wrong on this, however, probably the best way to learn what happened is to read the user manual if you do have it (see what the pcm light signals for and check any chapters inside the manual related to that topic).

SOURCE: Connected my cable box to
I'm sorry for the difficulties you're experiencing in getting audio from the connected Cable Box. I suggest that you try changing the sound field on the Receiver and change the output audio settings on the Cable Box to resolve the issue.
If the issue persists, connect a different HDMI device and check the operation.
Please get back to me with the exact model # of the Marantz Receiver so that I can provided more specific instructions.
Thanks for understanding.

Try upgrading your firmware and do a reset on the receiver. If this does not help your problem, then you might have an HDMI issue or a bad DSP chip.
