My buddy and I tried his MUSE DAC on a typ. FIOS STB (Motorola) - all it did was "click" like a fan noise hitting something. The same noise with optical/digital RCA cables. (tried two STBs boxes with same results) I called FIOS support and tech said they do not guarantee that every component out-there will work their equipment.

The DAC is fine, works fine with other sources.

The FIOS box is fine, work with a 7.1 HT processor.

Any ideas? - does anyone have a DAC working with a FIOS STB?

Motorola QIP6416 DVR Fios TV Box Manual

* I never thought that 2 channel stereo sounds very good on the HT processor.

Only thing that makes sense is that the STB is outputting in multichannel format, even when just two channels are present.

Thanks - that was my first thought also. We went in the menu and switched to "stereo" on both of the Set Top Boxes.
The muse has a unlock light, which was off (meaning it thought it had a good signal).

Now using the rca analog out (FIOS box); right up to the stereo pre-amp which works nicely; we were hoping to up-grade a bit. It would be great if it would work :-/

*Looked for every setting we could find, also called tech support.....nada
