I used the optical link from STB to receiver. Got it at Circuit City. Monster cable. Not the most expensive model. Works great!

It was $19.95 I think. A 3 or 4 footer. People will argue back and forth all night about how much to spend on cables, but it is a digital signal and (in my opinion), it will work or not. The main concern for me is the connector and if it has a positive snap when properly plugged in. It locks in fine!

An optical audio cable carries digital signals so cable quality is not that important. My suggestion is to buy a Toshlink cable that is long enough to allow you to still pull out your receiver for wiring. This will prevent you from having to remove the Toshlink connector repeatedly. The plastic molded connectors are fine as long as they are overused.


For reference, I purchased my audio cables online at

Good selection, shipped same day, fair prices.
