    Hi

    Posted previously about connecting my Audigy2 soundcard to my Sony 1080 receiver.

    I established I needed to purchase some digital coax cable, and a 3.5mm adapter (Maplins).

    The adapter is connected to one end of the cable, then into the digital out of the Audigy soundcard.

    Problem is I have no idea where the other end goes into at the Receiver end.

    I did read on here to plug it into the coaxial input of the receiver, trouble is the only one I can see - DVD/LD Coaxial in, is already being used for my DVD player.

    Help appreciated!

    Your Sony only has a single co-axial digital input. That is where you need to connect your signal from the PC.

    Does your DVD player have an optical output? If it has you could use that & free the co-axial input.

    AFAIK you can get an adapter to change a digital signal from co-axial to optical. Your amp has 3 or 4 optical inputs.

    Hi
    I have a Toshiba 330e DVD player, which does have an optical output.

    For the time being I am going to try the co-axial input for the Audigy2 connection, and revert to using the standard RCA phono cable to connect my DVD player.

    Will definitely look into your suggestion of purchasing a co-axial to optical adapter, for a permanent solution.

    Thanks for your help!
