Help with a converter



I purchased a Radio shack Toslink to PCM converter to hook up between my Dish Network Satelitte which has a optical output & Pioneer receiver which has a coax input. I'm not sure if this unit will allow me to hear Dolby digital or will it just allow me stereo. What is confusing me is this PMC(Pulse Code Mudulation). Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

It will work ! That convertiwidget you bought is just changing optical digital (toslink) to electrical/coaxial digital (rca phono).

Not if it is a PCM modulator it wont if it doesnt modulate it will work but then it wouldnt be a TOSlink to PCM converter. Unless FLimber knows of the unit.
