Panny BD-35K To SONY STR-DE835 Optical Digital Audio Cable

by IHBsinger / December 3, 2008 3:19 AM PST

The BD-35K has HDMI but my old SONY receiver does not, so, these questions: should I get an HDMI-to-DVI cable and connect BD35K to DVI on my HDTV? 2)should I get an optical digital audio cable to connect BD-35K(which has no coax digital audio connector)to the SONY receiver? If so,what optical cable do I need? Thanks in advance!

your reciever has a DVI port or your TV????

DVI does NOT run audio.

run the HDMI from the blu ray to the tv & a toslink to the reciever for audio

ignore what I said about S-link. Upon re-reading I see you said toslink.

My 5 year old Toshiba HDTV has the DVI port. A guy at a very reputable local audio-video store told me I MUST run an HDMI to DVI cable between the TV and BD-35 in order to get a much-inproved video on the TV. I did find an optical digital cable to run from BK35 to SONY 835 amp. Don't know yet how that will perform. If not well,I'll try the S-link idea?

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?
