    Hi, wonder if anyone can help.

    3 months ago I had to disconnect and then re-connect my cables/equipment and ever since then I've not been able to get sound from my DVD player through my amp. I know the DVD player is working fine, as I can get sound through the TV. I have a Marantz 6200 and Toshiba 510.

    I'm a complete Homer Simpson when it comes to AV equipment so before I disconnected the cables 3 months ago, I noted where all the leads went, so I think I've re-connected correctly, but obviously something's wrong.

    I have a 75 OHM lead from the Coaxial hole in the back of my DVD to the DIG OUT COAX hole at the back of my amp. I'm sure that's all I had before (other than the scart going into the TV) so can anyone give me any pointers as to what's wrong. Thanks.

    Move the coax from the DIG OUT COAX hole at the back of the amp to a DIG IN COAX hole. The DIG OUT COAX hole is for sending audio out of the amp to a CD/MD etc recorder ie as the name suggests it is an output and not an input as required to get the audio into the amp.
