Hey guys.
I recently bought an hdtv and i want to connect my home theatre to it.
The problem is the only port that i can see on my tv is called s/pdif and the one on my home theatre is an optical output.
Please tell me how do i connect the two because i can see that the two ports look different.
So please tell me if i will need a converter and what type of connecter do i have to use?
And please i am a noob in this kind of stuff so please don't use technical language

S/PDIF (Sony/Philips Digital Interface) is an audio transfer format interface.

The signal is transmitted over either a coaxial cable with RCA connectors or a fibre optic cable with TOSLINK connectors.

You wrote you can see the port on the HDTV, but you don't identify what kind of port it is.

What is coaxial thing? can you guys tell me .
Is it the same as s/pdif jack?
If it is then i can just buy a coax to toslink converter.
Please help.
