When I first turn the receiver Video3 + 53( the sound volume.)
When I just press V3 no change, if I hold the V3 button in up comes HHD if I hold the V3 button in again Video3 + 53( the sound volume).

According to manual, V3 can also be used to control an HDD device. The manual says pressing V3 twice switches to HDD, which is consistent with what you see happening. Do you have an HDD device attached to your receiver?
post #63 of 86
I doubt the HDD has anything to do with this.

The next step: Swap the optical cables. Do this at the back of the receiver. Take the cable now in Optical 1 and put into Optical 2. D the same with the other one, moving it from Optical 2 to Optical 1. The cable from the TV set will now be plugged into Optical 2 and the one from the Direct TV box will be plugged into Optical 1.

Once the cables are swapped, the Direct TV audio should only show up on the receiver speakers when you select V3. The audio from the Netflix Smart TV app should show up on V1, CD, and DVD.

When I switch the Opt. Cables no sound comes out of the receiver,from any option not even the TV.
post #65 of 86
Hmm. We know that the output and the physical cable from the Direct TV box are both good. They worked fine when plugged into Optical 2. But, they don't work when plugged into Optical 1. So, something is likely the matter on the receiver side, either with the physical input for Optical 1 or in how V3 is configured.

So, next step: swap the other ends of the cables at the devices themselves. Take the cable now attached to the TV and connect it to the Direct TV box and move the cable from the Direct TV box to the TV. We know that one of the optical cables is good. This will tell us whether the other one is OK. If it is, you will once again hear audio from DIrect TV on V1, CD, and DVD.

No change.

What if I ran composite cables from DVR to the Receiver.
post #68 of 86
No change, as in no sound from Direct TV now after swapping the device ends of the cables? That points to a bad cable.

So, remove the cable connecting the Direct TV box to Optical 2 and put it aside. That's the one that looks to be bad.

Then, take the other cable and attach it to the Direct TV box and to Optical 2. That gets back to the same set of connections for Direct TV that worked before.

Make sure it is working again before doing anything else.

Composite is video, not audio. Besides, the digital audio output from the DVR works fine. The problem is the output of the TV set .

Your asking me to remove one cable and replacing it with another which there will be no cable form the TV.
post #71 of 86
Yes. It looks like that cable doesn't work. But, put it back if you want. Right now I want to get you back to the point where direct TV sound comes out of the receiver speakers.

OK TV to V1 and DVR to V2
post #73 of 86
Not sure where you're going with that. I simply asked that you put everything back the way it was before we started swapping cables so that the Direct TV programs will play on the receiver speakers.

OK The new problem is that the input V2 is worn out and difficult to keep connected.Sound is Coming to the TV from the receiver from V1.
post #75 of 86
Sorry, that has me completely confused. V2 is not a physical input. It is an input selector name, one that is not associated with either of the actual optical inputs.

At any rate, are you once again getting sound from the receiver speakers when watching something on Direct TV?

Yes
post #77 of 86
I don't believe your receiver supports the signal netflix uses for 5.1 streaming This is what caused me to dump and old sony receiver and move to an onkyo ht-rc30.

It looks like your receiver can do dolby digital but netfilx uses Dolby Digital Plus.
post #78 of 86
That's certainly possible, although Netflix does lots of different types of outputs. My Roku and AppleTV boxes do DD 5.1 and stereo PCM, for example. Do you know that his Samsung TV only outputs Netflix using DD+?

Good.

I have gone as far as I can with this. There are other troubleshooting steps to do. But, with your limited amount of experience, I am not confident in the process.

I recommend you recruit a friend or family member to help out . Or, failing that, hire someone. It shouldn't take long to straighten this out.

Good luck!

Thanks for your all of your help.
post #81 of 86
My understanding is that there is only one 5.1 for netfilx and it's digital plus. The first roku did not support netfilx 5.1 only amazon offered video with 5.1. On the roku 2 it supports netfix 5.1 with digital plus, same with the playstation

Way back in post #3 the OP said everything worked before he moved the TV. If that's true then it isn't likely that NF audio format is the problem. Bislander was so patiently trying to determine if there's a bad cable or connector that somehow got damaged along the way.

Like I said, I get DD 5.1 or stereo PCM from two different streaming devices with Netflix. This is a device specific issue. Besides, if the post possumgirl quoted is accurate, then the OP's receiver is capable of processing his TV's Netflix output and the question is what changed so that it does not work now.

420 benz,some things to check for sound from tv (NetFlix) to HT-S590 using optical cable:

- does the optical cable from tv emit a red beaming light? If no, possible bad cable or settings or protective caps covering the fibe optic.

- if this is a new optical cable, make sure the small protective caps are removed from both end

- set Samsung tv AnyNet+ menu under "Receiver" to "on"

- also try setting Samsung tv Sound menu "SPDIF Output" to "PCM" instead of "Dolby Digital"

- set Samsung tv to correct input for NetFlix

- set HT-S590 to correct input using remote input selector (whichever its assigned to V1 - V2 - V3 - DVD - CD - Tape)

Good luck.

JCHin: Everything you suggested was always set as you said except for setting Samsung TV to correct input for Netflix.

BTW: The only thing I moved was the TV. There is only one Opt. Cable output on the TV I moved that cable from one place to another.
Before: When I pressed Smart Hub on the TV Remote to watch a movie the TV sound would go silent until the movie came on then I would here both TV + Receiver sound. Next with the Direct TV remote I lowered the TV sound to O.
