You need to provide a lot more info. What device are you using? Make and model.

You probably need to assign the optical input on the receiver in order to use it properly. And perhaps your output device needs to be configured too

The av receiver is the Onkyo tx-nr 609 the tv a Panasonic Viera and i use a PS3 to watch films with usually a usb stick. I have an optical from ps3 another from tv and another from the dvd connected to a kind of a junction optical box and that is connected to the receiver. I have tried all possible settings but nothing. I have tried each device connected with the optical individually to the receiver but again no sound.

As afrogt mentioned, make sure that you've assigned to the optical input on the receiver to an input selector correctly. Make sure you don't have have an HDMI input assigned to the same input.

Make sure you've configured your PS3 to use the optical output as the primary sound output (Settings -> Sound Settings -> Audio Output Settings -> Optical Digital). Make sure that neither "AAC" nor "Linear PCM 2 ch. 176.4 KHz" are selected as output formats.

Your TV may not support sending audio to its optical output when you're playing movies from a USB device, especially if the audio isn't already encoded in a format that's compatible with SPDIF (optical).

If you're trying to connect your PS3 to the TV using HDMI and expecting the TV to output the HDMI audio it receives from the PS3 through it's optical out then it may not support this either.

It was a simple switching of audio settings of the ps3 from hdmi to optical, thanks guys.
