HELP ! have I got the right optical cable?


Established Member
Hi, I believe (but am happy to be corrected) thate there is only one main type of optical/toslink (see here: TOSLINK - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ) there are mini tolsinks that are round and require adapters which are dirt cheap. I have had issues in the past where one didnt seem to fit but it was just a very snug fit anf the other time i was just putting it in wrong. Have a check, there are two cut away corners on the connection, make sure it is going in the right way.

Hope this is of help!

Thanks, never used these before, once it is the correct way around, is it just a case of "forcing" it in? it has a bulbous head, so presumably it will be snug?

What's the Panasonic model number? Connectivity to these all-in-ones are limited.

It's Monday morning, you're forgiven.
