    I,ve bought a a Philips Dolby Digital TV and need a link to my Dolby Digital DVD for the digital repro. The DVD has an optical and a coax point and the TV has only a coax. I understand you can buy a lead with optical and coax would that be better than coax to coax. How much should I spend for a good quality connector?
    Anybody help?

    I would have thought that you would only buy a lead which is optical to coax if you only had a optical out on your DVD and coax input on your TV as the lead would have a optical to electrical converter on it. If you have both on your DVD player you might as well go coax to coax as it will be cheaper and will provide less conversion elements of the signal.

    I have never heard of said cable but then I haven't been looking.

    My coax to coax cable cost £20 which was the cheapest good quality cable.

    You can just connect a phono to phono lead if you wanted to.

    Hope this helps.

    I think a coax digital lead will be just as good as an optical one because the signal is digital.
