    'Ixos XHD408 (105) Digital Connect RCA to RCA,
    Connects your DVD, CD or DAC to your AV Amplifier'

    I just bought the above cable to connect my pioneer 565 to my amp for 5.1 sound. But the connector is to small?!
    Have i got the wrong cable? or do i need to force it in?

    Cheers

    A normal digital cable for use between DVD and Amp will have a normal size phono plug on each end. Sounds like you bought another type of digital cable.

    Yes mate, I think the socket on the Dvd player should be orange and the socket on the amp marked 'Digital In'. Both should be normal size phono sockets.

    I think maybe your trying to plug it into the optical out (or optical in on the amp). You need to plug it into the correct socket usually marked something like "COAXIAL DIGITAL". If it doesn't have coaxial digital on both your dvd and amp you may need an optical cable (assuming your dvd and amp have optical)

    Have unscrewed the outer part of the connector slightly?

    I have a Ixos cable and you need to undo it, push it on to the socket then screw it back up, thus making it a tight fit.

    Also be aware that, in an attempt to squeeze the maximum quality by making the best electrical connection, the plugs on some some high-end cables are intentionally very tight.
