I have an Onkyo TX-NR905 and a set of Pioneer SE-DIR2000C headphones. The inputs on the headphone transmitter include digital optical in, and the receiver has a digital optical out. So, naturally I though the two would work together and provide me the opportunity to listen to anything played on the receiver through the headphones.
I can get get the headphones to work if I use them as a bypass for an individual component. For example if I run the digital optical out from my Xbox360 to the headphone's digital optical in, then run the digital optical out from the headphone transmitter to the receiver, it all works fine.
My problem is that I (like most of the people on these forums, I assume) have several surround sound devices running through my receiver and I don't want to have to swap out cables every time I want to listen to something with the headphones.
Anyone know why the digital optical out on the receiver doesn't actually seem to work on the headphones? (And, yes I looked to make sure red light was coming out of the port.)
