DENON AVR1601 OPTICAL INPUT WILL NOT TAKE TOSLINK CABLE

My toslink optical cable is too big for my rear optical input. I think it was an earlier type. It has a removable plug for access. Is there an adapter for this or should I just try to file the sides of the cable to make it fit in the hole?

SOURCE: What is the best way to attach a Sony SCD CE595 CD

That is correct. Digital connections through some models of SACD players are via "firewire", otherwise it is analog output. There are no optical connections.

The shortest pair of RCA cables, or even component video cable as an alternative will work.

SOURCE: Hi. I've got a Denon AVR-1907

Have you considered your source may be the problem if the receiver isn't?

You say setup is correct. If so it would work, no?

How do I connect a Panasonic TX-50A300B (TV) to a Panasonic SC-HTB20 Home Audio System?


The audio system sports both a HDMI input AND an Optical input - one can use either. The TV has both of those as outputs so you truly can use either!
You'll need a HDMI to HDMI cable or an Optical to optical TOSlink cable.

Can i use a toslink cable


No. The Toslink cable would only carry the audio portion and not the video. That's why the HDMI cable and it's related firmware were created. HDMI can pass both video and digital audio. For more information, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. Thank you.

Connect with componet cables.


The only digital audio input for this TV will be via the HDMI input. Of course, even with HDMI in, you're only going to get a simple stereo output from the TV. You can use the analog L & R audio inputs for a very similar sound from the TV speakers.

The digital multi-channel audio (Dolby Digital, THX, 5.1, 7.1, etc) encoded in the program should be connected to a suitable multi-channel amplifier with either a TOSLINK (optical), RF (coaxial) or HDMI cable for theatre-like sound. This can be done by (a) cabling from the source (DVD, BluRay Disk, Set Top TV Tuner, etc.) directly to a multi-channel amp and speakers, or (b) from the HDMI output of these devices (DVD, BluRay Disk, Set Top TV Tuner, etc.) into one or both of the TV's HDMI inputs. This will provide only stereo sound output from the TV speakers. You should connect the TV's TOSLINK optical "Digital Output" jack with an optical cable to the amplifier's TOSLINK optical input jack to obtain theatre sound.

To listen to the program shown, you would select the amplifier input assciated with the optical, RF or HDMI input that is connected to the source (DVD, BluRay Disk, Set Top TV Tuner, etc.) if connected directly. If the TV HDMI input(s) are used, they are output to the TV optical output and should be connected to the amplifier optical input. The amp input associated with the optical input should be selected to hear the program with theatre-like sound.

Just brought aamsung home theatre and cant get tv channels to play through it


the LG has optical audio out put. If the samsung has the same optical input,then use an optical toslink cable to connect and select that input. Other wise Gefen(co) makes optical to analog adaptors available on ebay. You may also be able to run the audio out of you sat reciever or cable box directly to the "aux" inputs of your samsung via reg rca stlye cables and select that input!

Can't connect Digital Optical Audio cable to receiver


The TOSLINK optical connector is almost aquare and should be the same on both blue-ray and on the receiver. There are 4 orientation you can try and only one fits. Blue-ray can have the connector installed rotated, but it should be the same connector.

Looking at the cable at Amazon I can see that it is the correct cable. If it really doesn't fit, maybe you have damaged cable or damaged connector. Try the other end of the cable and/or other optical input on the receiver.
BTW there is also combined analog/optical jack connector. It looks like normal jack socket, but accepts also optical signal. But this is not called Toslink and usually is not used in home theatre devices.

What is the best way to attach a Sony SCD CE595 CD player SACD to a Denon AVR 2105 Receiver. I thought the optical input would be best but according to a web posting, toslink does not support SACD


That is correct. Digital connections through some models of SACD players are via "firewire", otherwise it is analog output. There are no optical connections.

The shortest pair of RCA cables, or even component video cable as an alternative will work.

Connecting Sony BDP S550 Blu-ray player to my Denon 3802 receiver.


The only thing you need is an optical audio cable (toslink) connecting the Blu-ray blayer with one of the three inputs on the AVR3802. Then assign this input in the system menu to the input you like (e. g. DVD) and that should be it. The Receiver automatically detects the sound format from the Blu-ray and changes from stereo to DTS, DD5.1, 7.1 or whatever.
