Hi,

I have the following setup:

Hitachi 57S715
Denon AVR-3300
Enery Take 5 Series speakers and sub-woofer.
Panasonic DVD-F86 DVD player.

I recently bought Panasonic DVD-F86 (for progressive scan). This DVD player only has Coaxial out. When connected via Coaxial to the Denon receiver -- there is no output in the sub-woofer. If I connect my old DVD player that has Optical out, sub-woofer works fine.

Any clues?

Thanks,
Ravi.

Does your old one also have coax-out? See if it is any different.

Also check the setup of your new DVD player. There may be some bass management buried in the menus. (Did you RTFM? ;) )

No matter where you go. ... There you are.

Sub problem aside...

Chances are that your Hitachi S series does a better job making the image progressive than the Panasonic. The minimum native resolution on your TV is 540p, meaning, that if you feed it 480i or 480p, it will upconvert it to 540p (1080i can also be selceted). Switch your Panasonic between 480i and 480p and see if there is a difference in PQ, if not, you might want to take it back.
