Question about Onkyo TX-DS575 Receiver

I called Onkyo support regarding the issue with the clicking/popping noise and they said that that's normal when you change channels that are digital. They don't seem to think that it's a defect.

SOURCE: I hooked up a fiber
Make sure that the place it is plugged into the TV is an output and not an input for the fiber optic cable, and the place it is plugged into the Onkyo is an input and an output for the fiber optic cable. This can be connected backwards very easy. Then you want to make sure that the Onkyo is properly set on the right function to listen to the TV. Check your owners manual on how to set up the optical input and have it assigned to the function you are trying to use. Sometimes these type of receivers have an input mode button that you can set to "optical" or "analog" or "digital" or "auto". Try changing those settings after you make sure the TV optical is an "OUTPUT" and the optical on the Onkyo is a "INPUT".
After you have these thing set right you should be able to listen to it like this.
I hope this helps, if you need more help just reply back on this post, but please give more detail about the connectors and on the TV and the Onkyo, and about the digital input settings on the Onkyo. It would also help to know the model numbers of both the TV and the receiver. There is no way to check out what each of your devices are capable of doing without knowing the model numbers to look up the specs.

Make sure you have the tv volume turned right down as this will cause an echo,also set amp to prologic 2, and set up xover to suit your speakers or go for the THX standard of 80 hrtz and as a rule of thumb set front L,C,R speakers to zero rears to about +4or5 and your sub to -5[ dont know which speakers you have but try setting the subs on board volume to the 10,o,cloak position],also make sure the speakers -,+ are wired the same at the amp and speakers.
Hope this helps.

If your remote also controls the Cable Box you might want to look at its audio settings. Maybe you muted it.
BTW: it would be a good idea to also run video and analog audio from the cable box directly to the TV if it has speakers so you can watch and listen independent of the Onkyo.
