So here is my setup,
Motorola DCX3400 (HDMI 1) > Toshiba HDTV (TV Optical Out) > Insignia Soundbar
Blu-Ray player (HDMI 2) > Toshiba HDTV (TV Optical Out) > Insignia Soundbar
Audio and Video signals reach the TV successfully and if I use the TV speakers I have sound. While I'm on HDMI 2 (the blu-ray player) the soundbar receives the optical signal successfully, however while I'm on HDMI 1 (the Comcast DVR) the soundbar doesn't produce any sound.
If I switch back to the Blu-Ray player I have sound, swith to the DVR no sound.
I went through the DVR audio setup and didn't see anything amiss.
Can anyone shed some light on my pain.

Thanks for the suggestion, I'm going to try to run the optical straight from the box, to troubleshoot if the DVR is bad. But that doesn't explain why the Blu-Ray works and the DVR doesn't. Like I said in the original post, the TV is getting the audio successfully, if I use the TV speakers. Switching the speakers off and using nothing but the optical out, produces no output to the soundbar from the DVR...
The other problem is the soundbar only has one optical input, and I have 2 sources Blu-Ray and DVR...
