    i just bought the sony dvpcx895v 400 disk dvd changer, and it has a full compliment of audio and video outs on the rear. my pioneer vsx-d811s reciever has digital inputs on some of the device inputs.

    my question is, if i use the digital connection, is that all there is to it to get the sound into my reciever? no other audio connections needed?

    im a newb at the audio/video world, so go easy on me :)

    thanks!

    yea thats all there is to it. As long as you plug it into the digital connection that correspondes with the regular input for your equipment. For example. Dvd player has your dvd audio component inputs, and your dig inputs, Make sure you plug it into the dig imput and nothing in the component imputs

    Say what?:confused: DVD player inputs? What the hell are audio component inputs? :wtf:

    Anyway, RedZ71, as long as you have the same type of connections on both your dvd player and receiver (either coaxial digital or TOSLINK optical) all you have to do is hook up just that cable and that should be it. You might have to go into the menus of both your receiver and dvd player and turn on their digital input and output, respectively.

    What is confusing about inputs for your audio components? Or, a component input (i.e. RCA, etc)?

    Sorry, I've just never heard anybody call them component audio inputs and I've been around a long time. He should have just called them RCA inputs or line-level inputs. And as far as dvd inputs, unless he was specifically talking about a dvd recorder, he was talking out of his rear-end.

    Many dvd players have inputs that are simply pass through. I know my dvd player does. I'm not sure why he would be trying to bullshit. Yea, I haven't heard many call it component either, but I figured he meant composite.
