I have a Sony CD/DVD player that is a DVP-CX995V.  It is hooked up to a Pioneer VSX-821.   They are connected via a Monster wire  optical cable. The video connection is via HDMI. I've always been able to listen to both CD's, DVD-A's, and SACD's with this setup.  Recently, I took all the wire apart, dusted, organzied and labeled wires.  

The problem:  SACD's do not play now.  The 995 shows the disc selection, the time playing on the songs, it moves from songs to songs, but nothing comes out of the speakers.  When I play an SACD, the SA CD light glows as well as the Multi Channel light on the front of 995.

It does play both the CD and DVD-A's without problem.

Thanks for your help !

The fact that the SA CD and Multi Channel lights come on indicates that the problem is not with the transport.  Doesn't your VSX-821 process the audio that comes over the HDMI connection?  I don't understand why you need both an HDMI connection and an optical connection.
