I just got my new Panasonic XP 30 and realized that I made one mistake: I bought my digital coax (and opened it) before the player arrived. Well, on arrival I notice the only digital output for my DVD player is an optical output, the other audio is the standard L/R analog output. Is there any feasible way to connect the digital coax (adapter, etc) or do I just have to bite the bullet and buy an optical cable?

of course Eric if you are spending over 50 dollars on your cable then you would want somethign of higher quality than a 50 dollar converter, otherwise you would likely be better with just a cheap cable as opposed ot a converter anyway :D

Well, I meant most cases because I've seen optical to coaxial and coaxial to optical converters for just $16.75 at Parts Express (part numbers 180-961 and 180-960).

If you pay $50 for a converter, it should have 2 inputs and 2 outputs for optical and coaxial AND convert the signal EITHER way. These types of converters are available.

Heh. Don't forget that you still need to buy an optical cable, to connect the DVD player to the convertor! So there is still no way to save money by using a convertor.
