Hi all,

these is probably the dumbest question that's been asked here recently, but here's my problem: I bought an HK3490 amp about 2 weeks ago, but I'm unable to select the optical digital audio in. I hooked up both, an HD-DVD player and a regular DVD-player; the digital outs from both devices have worked with my old amp. So, either I'm too dumb to select the input, or is the darn thing broken?

Many thanks in advance


P.S. I did check the manual. Several times. Couldn't find it there.

Hook up one of the players with an optical cable. Hold down the video1 button on the unit and hit the t-mon button at the same time..it should change between optical, coax and analog. Lemme know if that works.


edit... found it in the manual. Page 19, third paragraph on the left.
I love my hk 3490 btw, its hooked up to some Klipsch KG4's and they sound awesome.

Oh man, I cannot believe I missed that in the manual.

Anyway, thanks again! Works beautifully.

Glad to see there are a few of us HK 3490'ers around. I love this amp too. Recently, however, I found a strange feedback from the bass frequency when I stacked my turntable on top of the amp. Maybe that was the problem as it was a temporary set up and I never had the feedback before.


Cheers

Never, ever do this. Amps need to vent heat. If they don't, feedback will be the least of your worries.

Yeah, I did already...like I said, very temporary situation. Was wondering more about the bass feedback problem...but I guess it's a moot point due to the amp needing breathing space....thanks for the reminder!

Thank God for AVS Forums. Bought this old school stereo receiver (not a 5.1 guy, sorry) and I promise I read the manual but must have missed that little paragraph on page 19. AVS Forum (and Google) to the rescue. Thanks, all!
