    Does the 626 have component outputs, I sure mine didn't!

    Make sure the 626 is set to output AC3 / DD rather than PCM.

    Could be you're not getting a signal on the optical cable, or it's not set up at the TV end.

    Have you assigned the optical input to the AV input that you are using for your DVD player?

    If not, you'll need to go the the AV setup menu on your TV and set Digital Input 1 (or similar) to EXT3 (for component input). Hopefully, you should then get glorious DD 5.1.

    The only other thing I can think of is to make sure that the optical cable is firmly attached. I remember it took quite a firm push until the optical cable 'clicked' into my Tosh, so much so that I was a bit nervous that I'd break something!

    Good luck,

    Nigel

    Try a co-ax instead of a optical cable. This will eliminate the cable as the cause or answer your problem.

    You must select 'bitstream' in the setup menu of your dvd player.

    If you have done this, then there is something else amiss.
