I HAVE A SONY DVD HOME THEATRE SYSTEM. MODEL DAV-HDZ235. BELL CANDADA HAS JUST SENT ME A NEW HD SYTEM TO REPLACE THE CURRENT ONE. THEY ARE UPDATING THEIR EQUIPMENT. FOR MY HOME THEATRE SYSTEM TO WORK i HAD TO BUY A OPTICAL CABLE. THE PROBLEM IS MY HOME THEATRE SYSTEM DOES NOT HAVE THAT PORT. DO I NEED TO BUY A NEW SYTEM, OR IS THERE ANOTHER WAY OF CONNECTING IT?THANK YOUBILL ELSE
You do not need to buy a new system, what you need is a DAC converter, that converts the Optical signal over to standard analogue RCA. You would simply run the Optical cable from the Bell HD box to the "Input" of the converter, and then run a set of RCA cables from the "Output" of the converter to the RCA Input jacks on your Sony Home Theater System.
