Digital Audio??

I was re-wiring my system this weekend and noticed that my rogers digital box has an output for digital audio. Whats the deal? It's a single output, so where on my receiver do I run this? Do I need a single to double wire to run to my video 1 input on the receiver?

any help would be great.

u'd run it into you digital in if you have such a connection on your receiver.
You wouldn't want to convert the signal to run into your video 1 as that would be defeating the purpose of a digital output.

You need to have a digital in on your receiver, it would be a single plug as well.... you most likely don't have it.

Digital audio out would most likely be used for recording purposes so you could capture the digital stream directly instead of decoding it to analog and then encoding back to digital by the recorder.

most likely it would not be used for recording but rather surround sound or AC3, 5.1 setups. Many newer recievers have this options and some people also have better convertors than the standard Rogers junk boxes. I know a few guys who have really nice plasma screens and sick home theatre systems who would not want to use the standard sound of the Rogers box.

Essentially it is a spidif output (coax).
