Get an optical->coax converter instead, and you can send real 5.1 surround sound to your DVD system. And there's no risk of sound quality degredation, it either works perfectly or it doesn't work at all.
I'm looking at the HTIB manual
at the moment, and I'm about to facepalm pretty damn hard at Philips.
– For your playback through DIGITAL IN
connection, set the digital output of that
player to PCM format.
Which means that the coax-in doesn't have support for DTS/DDL decoding... NICE JOB PHILIPS, NICE JOB!
In laymans terms (for the OP): The coaxial input is a pile of turd with no real use as long as the analog inputs work fine.
