Not Able To Get Digital Audio Out Via Optical
« on: June 26, 2012, 03:19:14 PM »


got this xbox media center running 720 p in ntsc  gorgeous picture
i was using the original xbox hd pack dongle which has got a tsop output
i was using previously my analog cable for the audio i mean the red and white rca cable and component for my video
my tv is full hd 1080 p  it a Sony kdl 46wx00
it has also got a tsop at the back
i have connect the optical from my xbox hd av pack to my tv via an optical cable

I think you mean TOSlink (Toshiba Link) aka: SPDIF; tsop is something entirely different.

The obvious thing to check is that the optical cable you're using is carrying the  signal ie. does it have a red light at the end you plug into the TV's receiving socket?

Sometimes the signal can be weakened if you're using a x2 splitter or one of those 3-way switchers and it doesn't line up perfectly. For some reason I've also found with those switchers if I switch it from the XB360 or PS2 I also have attached whilst the Xbox is on my amp sometimes doesn't recognise the signal. But if I shutdown and reboot without changing anything the sound reappears perfectly.

I'd also check the TV to make sure that optical digital audio input is enabled and test it with another TOSlink connected audio device.

You mean S/PDIF or TOSLink, not TSOP. smile.gif

How is your Xbox modded? If it's softmodded, did you bypass virtual eeprom before enabling digital audio?

sorry typo error  
i meant to say optical (s/pdif)
my xbox is evox i think its hard modded ,
cause have to press the eject and power button to boot into evox and the light is amber otherwise it goes into microsoft dash and the light is green
haven't checked by opening the xbox though
i think the virtual eeprom  should be by passed already because i was running the xbmc in 720p and the its working in ntsc
i did that from the enigmah thingy change my pal to ntsc and then enabled the 720 p
there is no splitter involved here
i ve checked the optical cable by pulling it from both ends and yes i can see a red light coming out of it
what next

It might be a virtual eeprom issue as Heimdall has indicated. Not my territory so I won't comment.

However I'd still suggest eliminating the possibility of the problem being due to the TV. Do you have a XB360, PS2 or other device  with TOSlink audio connections you can use to test that it is working OK?

I didnt read the whole article, but the section of it says late 90s

people who blame bush arent the only shortsighted ones, the seeds of the current problems go back. waaaaay back.
