If you are not getting audio through the digital connections, but are getting picture, try the "Source" or "mode" buttons on the AVR's front panel. Them Source button is the small button on the far left of the recievers face plate, and the mode button is under the drop down panel. At times, my old 4306 would somehow or other get a stray input signal and change the settings. You basically want to make sure the source is correct and the mode is in auto.
An easy way to test is to have have something playing (TV, blu-ray, whatever) that is connected via a digital input and you know has sound. Try tapping the source button and wait a few seconds (you'll normally hear some clicking sounds from the receiver, that is fine). If you go through a full cycle (back to what the display said the first time you hit the button, I think there were something like three total options it cycled through) and still no sound, do the same procedure with the mode button.
I once thought my DVR was having an issue as I couldn't get audio out of it (HDMI only), and messed with it for a few days. I finally remembered to hit the source or mode button and voila, sound.
The best part, it takes all of a minute to try to see if this works. I hate having to go through long and/or expensive trouble shooting procedures. Hope it works for ya. The 4306 was/is a great AVR.Edited by Snowmanick - 2/21/13 at 11:33pm
