    Toslink to Coaxial convertor?

    I need to convert the optical/toslink cable (going to my a/v amp) to coaxial, which is what my old bluray player supports. I have found plenty of little box convertors for sale, but they seem a bit hit & miss (reading user reviews) with a DTS signal. Anyone using one, tried & trusted to work...

    Some advice, please. I have a Humax HD recorder and find that the Coaxil Connector wobbles a little.

    Coax network is a mess
