TOSLINK output

Thu Jul 23, 2009 3:33 am

Has there been a change in the operation of the Toslink output? I find that my M1001 Toslink out is still active when the unit is "off". I am using a receiver with dedicated digital inputs, and sharing the CD toslink and coax inputs with a CD player..

Before, by turning off the Roku, the receiver automatically sensed the CD player.

It no longer does this, and I have found now that the Roku's Toslink is active when even when unit is shut off.

Can this behaviour be changed?
Thanks
Eric

Hmm...

Nope, I think the digital outputs have always behaved in this way (much to the dismay of many Roku customers).

Leaves me somewhat curious why your experience was different before??

jtbse is correct. It has always been this way. We have complained many times in the past to Roku about it, but without success.

The only thing I can suggest is that either you had some rogue experimental firmware which did turn the output off, and you perhaps updated to a "standard" firmware... or maybe your receiver has a smart feature where it actually detects whether there is anything meaningful on the S/PDIF signal and perhaps that feature has somehow been disabled. (I never heard of receivers doing that but I guess it's not impossible.)
