    I have a PS2 with a monster S-Video/rca audio cable connecting it to the TV. The video and audio cables are connected together. Now I want to take advantage my reciever's digital audio capabilities, so would I plug the monster svideo and audio cables into my tv from my ps2, and connect an optical cable to my reciever from my ps2? Or would i just leave the rca audio cables dangling unplugged (could this affect audio quality?) any help would be greatly appreciated.

    thanks

    For True surround sound you will need to connect a optical/coaxial cable from the PS2 to the receiver. And you will leave the audio cables unplugged.

    I have both connected, and it works fine for me.

    PS2 has optical output? If so, yes, connect the optical output to the reciever and the s video to the reciever.

    would there be any loss of quality if i put the s-video and analog sound cables into the tv straight from the PS2 and connect the optical cable between the reciever and PS2? whenever i feel like using the digital sound i'm planning on just turning down the volume all the way on my tv. i'm just planning on doing it this way so i won't have to shell out for another svideo cable. btw, happy new year!
