    I have a dvd player that has a digital audio cable socket but a home cinema amplifier that has an optical socket. Is it possible to get an adaptor or is there cable with the two fittings at either end available? :confused:

    Maramelia,
    When you say digital, what does the connector look like? Is it a bit like an RCA phono socket with 2 small projections top and bottom? If so it's COAX and will need a COAX connector at the other end. Fibre optic cable cannot be terminated with anything other than a fibre connector. So you may have a problem....
