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
i never saw home tether with optical outputs, only inputs
lets say your tv has spdif out and your htr has optic input
data from both are same, just spdif uses electric current for transfer whereas optical cable uses light
Don't get thrown off by terminology, SPDIF jack is WHAT? looks like a Toslink jack, then that's all u need bud. If it looks like a standard RCA jack, then all u need a cheap RF-to-Optical Digital Audio converter.
