I do not know what to do anymore... Desperately need help!
Until yesterday, I my Shaw Direct DSR530 was connected via the 'digital optical' output to a Sony STR-D595 receive. Worked like a charm.
Then, I upgraded to a AVR-790... and right now, I do not have digital sound anymore from my DSR530.
Here my current connection with the new receiver
AVR-790 connected to my Sony TV via HDMI.
PS3 conencted via HDMI to AVR-790 (both audio and video works perfectly)
Connected DSR530 video using component to AVR790.
Connected DSR530 audio using Optical to AVR790.
Did the proper input assigns and left the Denon to automatically detect input signal.
When I select the source for the DSR530, the AVR790 display video, but has no audio.
After some investigating, I have noticed that the Denon does not automatically detect digital input from the DSR530--it only detects analog
. Obviously, if I connect DSR530 to AVR790 using regular stereo inputs, the receiver has no problem playing the analog signal.
I tried forcing the Denon to DIGITAL input only, but it did not change anything, except for not outputting analog sound anymore.
Tried both AVR790 optical 1 and 2. No sound.
Tried changing optical wires. No sound.
Tried using a optical to coaxial converter to use coax on the AVR790. No sound
Then to test that the optical inputs of the receiver were working, I connected a DVD player using optical. Worked great!
I must have over looked something but I do not know what do do anymore.
Pretty frustrated, disappointed and I totally lacking sleep...
