I recently ordered an 8mm toslink cable thinking it was just a thicker cable but would have a "standard" connector. When I received it I found that the connectors are larger than the ones on the back of my dvd player and receiver.
What is an 8 mm cable for?
Is the 5 mm the "standard" that will fit in most dvd pl;ayers, receivers, etc.
my bad...it is the same connector. There is a small plastic protector on the end that looks integrated so I thought it was part of the connector and it is just large enough to prevent it from being inserted into the unit.
