by benpret / December 4, 2008 7:41 AM PST

Guys I?m in buying process of a B-Ray player I?m in the question of getting panasonic?s DMP-BD35 or DMP-BD55

I have an Onkyo thx990 HT and since it does not have HDMI input I don?t know if its analog audio any better than having the optical cable... should I expend the extra buck un the dmp bd55 and go analog?

Thanks in advance for your advice.

In your case I see no reason to spend the extra money and go analog.

So you think analog 7.1 is no better than optical?
I have never listen a 7.1 analog connection working so I?m on the blind

what about the disc that are on PCM lossless audio... how does it work with the optical cable?

A LOT OF Gracias!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
