Was working fine - now the word "digital" is flashing in the front display of the speaker, and while we get good picture for both cable and DVD, there is no sound. i usually use a universal remote (home theater master) and can not locate the sherwood remote to do an "OSD" look at what might be worng - thanks for any help, ideas, etc.

How is TV audio (from the cable box) getting into the Receiver? If digitally, you wouldn't be missing any one channel on a connection malfunction, you'd lose them all. If analog, swap the channels around to isolate the problem (and reconsider using digital).
Hi! I will be more than glad to assist you. I f you are going to hook up your cable box - motorola to the sherwood receiver, connect an hdmi cable to the back of the motorola cable box, there is only 1 hdmi output there, then connect the other end to the sherwood receiver on the hdmi input, then connect another hdmi cable to the hdmi output and the other end goes to your rca hd tv.
for the sony dvp, you have only one hdmi out, connect an hdmi cable to the back of the sony dvp if u have another spare. connect it to the hdmi input of the sherwood receiver. there is only 1 hdmi output at the sherwood, so u need to use a component cable to be connected at the back of the sherwood receiver component output then the other end goes to the component input of the hd tv.
if you dont have anymore hdmi cable to hook up your sony dvp, u can use component cable, the connection will goes like this, connect a component cable on the output of the sony dvp and the other end goes to the sherwood component input then connect another component cable to the component output of the sherwood and the other end goes to the rca hd tv on the component input.
I hope this will solve your concern, if you have any question, u can get in touch..
I would run toslink optical if you have it, if not then use coaxial digital from your TV output to receiver input. this will handle all the sound that goes with watching TV from any source(dvd player, cable, etc)
I would run the DVD player into the TV hopefully with HDMI cable so you get the surround sound.
the television can split off the audio information from the HDMI and send it back through the toslink cable to the receiver which decodes it into surround sound for your speakers.
The flashing digital input for DVD means its digtial input is either not connected or not transmiiting. If yoy still hear the DVD it is probably because you also have the analog cables attached. Is that right?
If you had both attached the receiver would opt for digital over analog but would default to analog if the digital signal was not there.
If you can connect the DVD's digital cable you will get actual 5.1 surround sound from DVD.
