Digital Coaxial hook-up from DVD to Receiver

 

Anonymous
 
I bought a coaxial digital Cord to plug into the back of my Sony Receiver "digital coaxial"..... So I can have the "multi-Channel Surround sound". On the receiver I have a button called "input mode" which I choose "Digital coaxial", however, I cant get any sound to come out unless I have it on analog. Well obviously that's not what I want. What am I doing wrong?

It sounds like you havnt configured your DVD player.

With no disc in the tray, you need to run through your DVD player setup options and select DD output, activate DTS(if compat), screen format, etc...etc...

There is no 'one' way to hook up your system. Everybody does it differently and has their personal preferences.

some will run their DVD video through their receiver which is then(in turn)connected to their TV input. Others run their DVD video diretly to the TV. Do whichever is most convenient for your own purposes.

Some do a mixture of both(like myself). I switch my DVD video through my receiver, but run my HDTV signal directly to the TV. Either way will work, and each method has its ups and downs. It's all about how you want to do it personally that matters.

I generally agree with Paul with the following proviso: in most cases, the most direct signal path will result in the best picture. However, there are some exceptions.
