Great forum guys. Lurking has been a big help. I have just acquired a bunch of new toys and am having some problems connecting it up. There are 2 problems. Passing the XBox signal to the TV and sending the audio output to the amp. The equipment list is: TV: Toshiba 36ZP18P DVD: Pioneer DV-545 AMP: Pioneer VSX-C300 XBox Connections: DVD => TV : SCART cable DVD => Amp: Digital Out Optical TV => Amp: Optical Cable from DA-1 on TV XBox => DVD: Standard XBox cable with SCART adapter Problems: 1. XBox signal not being passed through DVD to TV. I just get the DVD signal. 2. Audio signal not transferring to Amp. Considerations: 1. For the DV-545 is there a setting that changes the signal from DVD to XBox or should it be automatic when the XBox powers on? 2. I think the DA-1 Optical connection on the 36ZP18P is for input only. Is this true? If so, how do I send digital audio signals to the Amp. I would much rather use the amp and speaker set up rather than the TV's for audio. Sorry about the long post and I hope someone can help an AV newbie.
