    Hi All,
    Just set up my shiny new amp as per instructions and have pictures from both dvd and sat hd,however no sound.Connections are as follows:-

    inxos hdmi x2 to sat hd box and dvd player
    optical from hd box to amp tv/sat connection
    hdmi from amp to tv

    I have read in another thread that i need a component video out lead to get the setup menus,however i thought i would need this only to fine tune the settings from the defaults,please advise.

    Your HD box should be set to optical out. As the 1200 does not use sound from HDMI (I believe its throughput only, plz correct me if I'm off, here), this would explain no sound.

    If I'm right about no sound from HDMI, you should also connect the DVD player via optical. I think you will find you have to use AUX1 to input optical for DVD as there is no dedicated DVD optical in.

    If your TV is not outputting sound then there is a problem elsewhere.

    I use S-vid to output the 1200s on screen display setup menus and this works fine. Most things can be done using the front panel of the 1200 without onscreen.

    Hope that helps.
