Make sure the receiver is set to AUTO Detect for signal (other options are usually 2CH analog only, DIGITAL only)

 

 

Also, make sure the Optical input is assigned to the displayed input on the receiver.

oh yeah i tried that but its not working but i found out why it didnt work... thx for the help

 

the input for optical on the reciver is only for video channel input so since i had it on dvd channel it didnt work coz optical is only for the video 2 channel... it didnt work on video 1 channel either so yeah that was the problem... pretty simple.... and stupid... i dont get why they didnt make the optical work for all channels....
