Sorry if this is a stupid question, but is the optical link a Tos-Link? I've always used Coax for DVD and never looked at optical (no pun intended!). Went to a shop at lunchtime and there are various types of optical connection. My amp is a Sony STRDB940 and I'm pretty sure this only has Toslink connectors. Is there a limit to how long the optical cable should be. Found a 2.5m cable at Richer Sounds. Want to be able to pull the X Box away from the TV and amp (even though the controller lead is long). Thanks. Would like to get what I need before Thursday so its all ready to go! For the next few weeks....good bye life!!!!!
