To connect a blue-ray player SONY BDP-S1700 (Digital Coaxial OUT) to ONKYO TX8511 receiver (2RCA Audio), which cable should I use? Y-Cable 1 RCA(Digital Out) to 2RCA (Audio)?
The digital RCA audio cable is not the same as the analog RCA audio cable. You need a digital audio (input) to analog audio (output) converter. Amazon has a number of models: https://www.amazon.com/DA-Converters/b?ie=UTF8&node=3224445011
. Many models do not come with audio cables. Thus you'll need to supply the digital coaxial audio cable (see https://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-Digital-Audio-Compatible-Coaxial/dp/B01D5H8TS4/ref=pd_bxgy_2/134-6585034-3648633?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B01D5H8TS4&pd_rd_r=e311c756-6e80-4fd0-8026-16a144c6b41d&pd_rd_w=r0LwZ&pd_rd_wg=4jYy9&pf_rd_p=f325d01c-4658-4593-be83-3e12ca663f0e&pf_rd_r=YVE00Y31KS8TJ3YENVFN&psc=1&refRID=YVE00Y31KS8TJ3YENVFN for one version) and the RCA analog audio cable.
I hope this helps. If your TV has analog audio outputs (2 RCA or headphone jack), you may be able to avoid the converter. Connect the HDMI cable from the BDP-S1700 to the TV, then connect your TV audio out to the Onkyo TX8511. Use either an RCA analog audio cable or a Y-cable (3.5 mm to 2 analog RCA), Set the TV to external speakers if you need to. (Some headphone jacks automatically disable the TV speakers when in use.) You may need to adjust the video to audio sync with this method. Check your TV and Onkyo manuals.
