    Just got an XL4, and replaced a Premiere XL which I'll move to another room. Using all the same connections that worked well with my XL. Everything works, except I get no digital audio output from the optical output (and did previously from the XL). I do get audio output from the composite jacks, which feed my zone 2 speakers.

    All audio and video (component) go to my Pioneer Elite A/V receiver, then to the TV. FiOS cablecard switched no problem.

    Any thoughts on what is causing the hitch?

    If it doesn't work then maybe the optical out is defective. Is there even light coming out of the optical port?
