Because my receiver only has one coaxial out and it is for the DVD channel. My optical out is for the TV/DBS channel. My receiver is just old enough that I can't change the labeling of these channels. So, I'll have to use the DVD channel in my receiver for my television audio connections, and my TV channel for something else (probably gaming consoles). Makes for a little more confusion, but I'll have to deal with it until I get a new receiver.
Decided to go ahead and order the 57" thru Crutchfield. With any luck, it will arrive in one piece. Since, I live a little off of the beaten path, delivery leaves a little bit to be desired. The last television I ordered a year ago, arrived damaged and a single driver was moving these things without any help. So much for "white glove service." It just doesn't exist around here. Wish me luck!
