My cable company (comcast) just released HDTV for my area. I'm getting a Motorola 6200 on Wednesday but my question is about the audio connection to my reciever. I have standard cable so what type of audio connection should I use, analog or digital. I know in order to get the 5.1 sound from HDTV broadcast I need digital but will the "regular" analog cable sound be converted to digital through the HDTV box? Or do I have to run both types (digital and analog) connections to my reciever and switich between the two depending on the sound format? (I'm not sure if my reciever will switch/reconogize the input automatically) BTW I have a Harman/Kardon AVR-230 reciever and a Sony 36" HDTV-ready CRT Wega. Thanks for your help.

A single optical or coax digital audio cable is all you'll need.
