8300 hd pvr optical out

I know this was discussed years ago but I didnt pay attention because it was not an issue for me. Now it is. Is the optical out active? I called Videotron and they said yes, however it is not working for me so can someone confirm that it is active or not.
Thanks.

It is active, but you need to go into the audio menu under the settings and change the audio setting to Dolby Digital (or similar) and NOT HDMI.

Thanks for the quick response. I have already tried that (I was using digital out) before but my new(old) Yamaha AVR has only optical inputs.

I did a reset to factory settings on the Yamaha AVR and BINGO, we are in business. What a relief after 4 hours of messing around. Thanks to the forum.
