Very strange issue. My Harman Kardon DVD player optical out works fine, and the optical output from my LG TV to my previous DACs also worked fine, including the DSJ. The input display shows green and correctly displays the bitrate of the PCM output from my TV, but there is no sound.
Any troubleshooting assistance would be appreciated. Have also tried swapping cables, no luck. Again, this is specific to my DSD DAC.
Here’s the config: Roku streaming Netflix into my TV, TV configured to play audio via built-in speakers AND PCM optical out. The sound also does not work when I set my TV’s digital/optical out to “Auto”. LG E55OLED I believe is the model of the TV.
OK, additional information: This appears only to be the case streaming Netflix or Amazon through the Roku (but again the PCM optical out is from the TV to the DAC) and not with broadcast TV, where the sound indeed works. Thing is, all TV inputs work fine with my other DACs (a Teac UD-503 and a MyTEK Brooklyn DAC+).
I have a friend with a similar issue which he is experiencing with two DACs including a PS Audio DL III (my old one, which worked fine on my TV) and a ESS 9039PRO based Chinese DAC.
This ever happened to anyone else?
