    Have you?-

    1. Made sure the DVD disc menu audio output is set to DD?
    2. Does the amp have an auto/manual audio selector on it to determine what you hear?
    3. Has the player been set to output DD?

    Maybe muppet questions, but things easily overlooked.

    Composite cable? for digital audio? Either you have the wrong cable or you are calling it the wrong name. For digital audio ie Dobly Digital or DTS you need a Digital Coaxial or a TOS-link cable (fibre) depending on what the Amp and DVD player supports.

    I had this problem as well but with the RX-V596. Check that the output from the DVD is set to Bitstream not PCM, I think that is the correct way around. Otherwise try it the other way around. This is configured in the setup menu.
