On This surround sound receiver, which input is the SPDIF? The specs say it has 2. I am trying to hook my computer into surround sound. I am plan on using this cable.

I am going to use the computers orange audio output, cable it into the receiver. I just don't know which input to use on the receiver.

Thanks guys.

You'll probably want something like this instead.

Edit: Whoops, that cable is if you're using optical audio. For what you're doing, you'll plug into the orange port.

Are you talking about optical (the black ports) or coaxial (the orange port) ?

I am talking about coaxial. And yes I have a red composite plugged into the coaxial input.

I guess I could just move it to the DVD Audio port.

Get that out of there.

Composite != coaxial.

Or any of the three audio/video inputs or the CD or MD/CD-R inputs.

One thing I noticed when checking the computer input was that the SPDIF input didn't go in all the way. The gold "crown" prevents it from entering entirely and securely.

if you are using optical, you need a "toslink" cable....if your spdif cables look like RCA cables, jsut use those...it all works.

depending on your computer and its soundcard, it might only support somethign called spdif passthrough, which means that all content will be sent out in stereo (PCM Stereo) with the exception of content with Dolby Digital and DTS soundtracks, such as DVDs...
