Hey all.

So we moved the HT hardware around while doing some basement renos, and reconnected everything. I use a 10 year old Arcam AVR 100 (that admittedly owes me nothing at this point). All of a sudden, none of the digital inputs will work, irrespective of source (cable vs. bluray, Optical vs. coax). Analog audio seems to work fine, and there is sound coming out of the speakers when I test it with analog.

Anyone had this experience with a receiver before? Any idea what the problem might be?

Thanks

Frank, no I haven't run into that or even read about all the digital inputs being affected. Since analog is fine, it would seem that the problem is converting digital to analog, i.e. that somehow the moving damaged the DAC circuitry.

I'm sure you checked this but did you go into the setup menu and make sure you have the digital assignments turned on for each input.

Weird, weird, weird. I've triple-checked. It's definitely only an issue with the digital inputs, and all three (2 coax, 1 optical) appear to be shot. Worked fine last week.

I may open it up to see if there's anything obvious. Really don't want to blow another 600-1000 on a new unit.
