audio connections


Standard Member
I would like to connect the audio line output(combined digital optical/analogue
output) from my SONY VTX-D800 FREEVIEW RECEIVER which is a 3.5mm jack socket to the digital input(coaxial) of my TOSHIBA 32ZT29B TV.
can this be done and where can I get the right cable.

the sonys manual says use either a conventional 3.5mm jack plug lead or an optical lead. :clap:


Well it can't be done with a simple lead as you need to convert the optical output from the STB to a coax input on the receiver.
To convert from optical to coax you need something like This and a optical lead such as This. Then you just need a standard digital coax lead to the receiver. A bit of a messy way of going, but it does what you want!

It may not be worth the effort and expense when you consider that there are no Dolby Digital transmissions on Freeview at present.
