Hi fellas, Great message boards here. I hope I can get some answers. On the back of my receiver, I see one optical jack for my cable receiver. Unfortunately, my cable box only takes Coax as its digital output. Does this make sense? I don't know why, but I also see Coax jacks on the back of my RECEIVER - I thought only optical could be used to transmit digital sound. So basically, I need to know a few things: Are Coax and Coaxial the same thing? Is there a way to easily convert coax -> optical and vice versa? If Coax and Coaxial aren't the same thing, can someone give me a link directing me to where I could find one? I tried some coaxial cables I had lying around and I thought it'd be rediculous that a coaxial would even FIT in a digital audio jack, and, not to my surprise, the Coaxial cable did not fit in any of the jacks. I know, this is a really stupid post, but I really don't have any other resources for knowing these things. If there isn't a way to easily convert these, should I just get a new DVD/SACD player? I am thinking about getting a 5-cd DVD/SACD changer that is on sale on Amazon.com - it is a Sony model, but I unfrotunately do not remember/know the model number. Thanks in advance!
