Hello, Light coming from the cable does not mean the cable is fine. You'll see light even if the fibre is broken- it has a refractive index which is what focuses the amount of light to be read and decoded. I'm not saying 100% that is the problem, but it is a possibility.

So, have you tried resetting the Onkyo to defaults yet?

Do you have another optical cable you can try?
