Hey all just got the sirius today and have a setup question. Does the 8pin connector carry digital audio or do I need to also plug an optical cable in?


Thanks

I don't know with certainty. I've checked the user manual and it doesn't say. I found the attached pinout diagram online, which implies that it's analog.


But Sirius audio quality is so horrible anyway that I doubt you'll find any difference between the analog and digital optical output.

K this doesn't seem to be working as I'm hearing no difference in sound when doing this. What input should I be plugging the optical into on the avr when the 8pin is in the Sirius input? On my display what would I be looking for to show it's running digital sound? As of now it's just displaying that it's got a L and R feed.

Ya just confusing why they even put the connection on the thing. It won't work unless I have the 8pin plugged in, and then it needs to be on the "Sirius" input. There is no optical input for Sirius on the avr.


Once again I really appreciate your help
