1) Will I loose anything by only having the optical cable from the DVD player to the 950? Do I need the analog cables connected along with the DTS optical cable for any reason?
2) Can I use a Component cable like it was an analog cable? I would like to purchase the Component cables now, but I only have an analog connection to the TV at this time. I will soon have a RPTV that will accommodate the component input, but wondered if the cables could be used as analog in the mean time?
