    Hi all..

    I have the monster 300 cables. I see that there is a connection for a optic cable, which cable is this?

    Thanks

    The optical cable is the only one that doesn't have an RCA connector.

    You won't have an optical output if all you have is the standard AV pack though. I know there is one on the HD pack, there might be one on the S-Video pack too, but I'm not sure.

    There's on in the advanced (S-Video) pack. Don't bother with Monster, just buy a $7 pelican cable, works great. Bits are bits

    If you're using the Monster brand Xbox S-video cable then I think you will HAVE to buy the Monster Xbox optical cable. Doesn't Monster have a proprietary connector for the digital out?

    When I first got my Xbox, as I've psted over a year ago. I bought the monster S-video cables with the Monster optic cable. It was a piece of shit and got me fustrated because it never worked. never even let the Xbox open the correct DD menus. After some help from the HTF, I bought the Microsoft S-vieo cable and a GE optical cable. All and all it was like 25% of the cost and actually worked!

    I say, screw the Monster crap. Go with what's cheap. When your talking about transfering an encoded source of light, who gives a shit.

    Down with Monster, and up with quality stuff.[​IMG]
