I have a Toshiba SD-P2000 portable DVD player with a small mini-jack sized connection for PCM Bitstream audio output. What type of cable do I need to make this connection to an AV reciever's digital audio input jack?

You can read the owners manual here:

and see the output I am referring to under the CONNECTIONS chapter of the online manual

If it is the size of a 1/8" headphone jack (which is what it looks like from the pictures) then you would need something like this: http://www.ramelectronics.net/html/RCA-mini-spdif.html

Skimmed the manual pretty quick, but it wasn't clear to me whether the digital out was coaxial or optical. It shows a cable, but yet says "To digital audio input (optical/coaxial)", so, which is it? Dunno.

There are some components that connect via a mini-jack, but it's an optical mini-jack, not an electrical mini-jack. See example below.

Optical mini-jack cable

Just because there is a knob doesn't mean you should turn it.

To me it reads that it's a multi-format jack, optical or electrical mini should work just so you connect it to the appropriate input on the other end.
