Here is my weird problem:

The analog output of my SB3 does well, but the digital ones only transport some calm silence.

Neither optical nor coax out will give my speakers a single sound.

Is there a solution or is my beloved SB3 broken?

Plz help!! :(
Regards

Have you set the digital volume to 0?

The digital volume is separate from the analog volume.

What have you got plugged into the digital outputs?

If you look at the optical jack can you see the red LED glowing?

@radish: jepp, light is glowing

@Robin Bowes: my yamaha receiver, the dvd player works in the exact same input

@Mark Lanctot: digital volume? *hmmm* where can I adjust that?



Thanks all ;)

@Mark Lanctot: digital volume? *hmmm* where can I adjust that?

Just press the volume up button on the remote or use the player volume at the top left of the SS screen. Check also that Preamp Volume Control isn't set, Player Settings - Audio. It should be 0, meaning no attenuation.

However the volume buttons will also adjust analog volume and you say that's working. You say that swapping inputs works. How about the cable, can you swap that?

This may be a hardware problem, but before talking to support try unplugging the power, pressing and holding "1" and replugging power (resetting Xilinx) and if that doesn't help, a factory reset, the same as above only press and hold "+"/ADD. After a factory reset you'll need to re-enter all your network settings though.

Yeah! Resetting the Xilinx worked like a charm!


Thanks a huge double-lot!! :)

Awesome!

I find this usually solves audio problems.

It should be noted that having to do this is very rare, at least for me - I've had to do it once, maybe twice, in 3 years.
