    I have a surround sound speaker system with the following connections :

    2 phono (red and white)
    1 optical
    1 coax

    I have just bought a Creative Labs DDTS-100 Decoder, thinking I could plumb in my inputs (currently DVD player and hi-fi) and control them from this box.

    Unfortunately the inputs for the DDTS-100 are 3 jacks (front, rear and sub) !!!

    Does anyone know if a co-ax to jacks cable exists, or a 2 phono to 3 jack lead exists, or am I stuffed ?

    damn damn damn !

    You can just tell I'm a noob at this can't you !

    Can anyone help ?

    OK ... this is the link for the decoder :

    Decoder

    ... and these are the speakers I have :

    Videologic DTS Speaker setup

    I bought a decoder as I currently have a phono connection from my speakers to my DVD player (which work fine), but I wanted something cheap with multiple outputs so I could connect my hi-fi up to the speakers as well.

    I had the videologic dts system many moons ago it's very good for the money:).
    You do not need a seperate decoder as the videologic has it's own in built DD & DTS decoder. All you have to do is connect your dvd player to it via the digital coax(or toslink iirc) and the videologic will do the rest. IIRC it has anologue connections too if you wish to connect the tv or a designated cd player to it.
    You'll find it's a great little system for movies but fairly limited with music. You unfortunately have fairly limited conectivety too which was one of the reasons why I replaced it with an av receiver:D
