    MS hidef connector, optical into denon 3803.

    has worked great for 18months, then halfway through a ghost recon Live game, as I was shooting mainly normal in the head by accident, the sound just cut out. now it doesn't work on any game, other than the xbox green bootup screen.

    hmmm...

    Sounds like either it's a fault with the Xbox not outputting Dolby Digital or a fault with the amplifier. The sound during the boot-up flubber screen is just PCM. Normally in games it will be Dolby Digital. Does the amplifier still work correctly if you connect a DVD player to that optical input & play a DD disk?

    does the sound work if you use a scart to TV ?

    That will help narrow down which is working. if you can get sound to the tv then its the digital output circuits that are shagged. as nigel says the input on thre amp needs a check too.

    things should be clearer after those questions are answered.

    hi,

    thanks for the ideas.
    It was an optical port on the denon amp which seems to have packed in. swapped to anoither, and works fine. thanks.
