Question about Sony STR-DA90ESG
I recently purchased a Panasonic DMR-ES15 DVD player. My previous DVD player connected to my receiver via digital coaxial. This setup worked great! The Panasonic does not have a coaxial connection but does have digital optical which I run to the receivers DVD optical In.. I cannot get this setup to work. The Sony instruction manual says that it is not compatible with 96 kHz components. The Panasonic has a PCM down converter setting that converts the signal to 48/44.1 kHz. Even with this converter on, there is no audio. Any suggestions?
Hi, It sounds like your receiver is still looking for audio on the coaxial connection, rather than the optical.
1. Make sure the optical connection is between your DVD player and the LD/DVD Optical In on the back of your receiver.
2. If you have a monitor connected to the receiver to show the on-screen display, click Setup from the main menu, click Input Mode, then, next to LD/DVD choose Optical. It may be set to coaxial, analog or auto.
Alternatively, choose the input source on the front of your receiver (LD/DVD), then press Input Mode button (bottom right, near the input selector) till it displays Digital Optical.
If all else fails, reset the receiver by:
1. Turn off the receiver
2. Hold down DISPLAY and PANEL UP/DOWN buttons and press power.
3. All Clear should appear on the screen.
Use caution, however, as this will erase all the settings in your receiver.
