As far as optical from TV to 663 - don't do that -your TV probably only outputs 2.0 from a source other than it's own antenna. Do optical from DVD player to 663 (in addition to HDMI from DVD player to TV)
Wonky?.....lol. Never heard that word before but I like it
I tried the cable through the HDMI output and got the same thing, and I am also not getting the OSD through HDMI, so I am starting to thing that the HDMI out is broken.
The DVD player only has a coaxial digital output (not optical) so I am running that to the receiver instead of the optical from the TV.
I bought the 663 used so I need to decide whether or not to keep it or to contact the guy I bought it from to let him know that the HDMI output is not working and see what he would be willing to do. So my question is am I sacrificing any sound quality using coaxial/optical digital connections instead of the HDMI?
If anyone else has any ideas or settings I can adjust that might help, please let me know.
