I have just replaced 2 different VIP722 boxes. They are different from the original VIP722. The led lights are NOT as bright!

Now the problem is:
My optical audio cable that work on other units connected to my Harmon Kardon AVR55 do not work. Ive bought a new cable and still nothing.
The cables do work as Ive tested them from my DVD.

So what is new about this box that its not optical cable friendly?
Or is there a solution?
And I don't think its just bad luck with 2 cables that Work via any other component.

I mean I'm about to go out and buy a new receiver as this avr55 is old...But if I do and it still don't work even if I get ANOTHER cable..Ill freak.

So....I'm fairly literate in A/V
So....
HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:eek2:

Have you messed with the audio PCM Dolby settings in the receiver to see if that helps? Most of the time these audio none on an av receivers are caused by incorrect settings. It is possible that you got two bad receivers but its not too likely.
