Question about Yamaha Rx-v365 A/V Home Theater Receiver
Trying to connect AmazonBasics Toslink Digital Audio Optical Cable from a Samsung BDP1600 to a Yamaha RX-V365 and the cable won't fit into the receiver. I align it with the shape on the receiver and press it in firmly, but it does not click in. The receiver input looks slightly different from the output on the blu-ray player. Am I using the wrong cable or doing something wrong?
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.
