Receiver not Decoding Multichannel Audio

A TechLore "Ask the Experts" Question...


I was given a Sony STR-DA30ES receiver. There is a light that is supposed to light up when the unit is decoding a multichannel signal. I have the dvd player hooked to the the receiver through RCA cords (red ,white ,yellow). Do I need to use the coaxial from the DVD audio out to the receiver to get it work?

Ask the Experts: Where's the USB Jack on My Sony PSYC CD/MP3 Player?

A TechLore "Ask the Experts" Question...


I purchased a Sony PSYC Atrac3plus MP3 player D-NE320. It came with software, which I installed successfully.

My problem is that I cannot connect the player to my computer. The only ports on the play are for the headphones and to electrical power. I cannot find any sort of USB port.

As for Firewire, I don't know anything about it. My computer has a NIC card but nothing, to my knowledge, relative to Firewire.
