Check the back of your player to be sure.
Thanks, afrogt -- don't know what I was thinking, but, of course, you're right. And, right about the digital coax/optical, too. I've already committed the only two opticals I have, though, and have a couple of available 5.1's, so I think I'll give 'em a try.
…Not only have I never used either of those types of audio cables, I'm so far behind the curve that I've never used component cable before, either. I'm using all of them here, and one HDMI; so it's already quite an adventure, and I haven't even gone through the initial set-up process yet.
Anyway, again, afrogt, thanks for snapping me out of it.
P.S. And…. go, MadBum, go Buster, and go Giants!
