    I have bought the better official xbox scart and an optical audio cable to plug into it, but my new amp has a co-axil audio input. Does anyone with this setup know the easiest way to hook this up?
    I guess either a special lead from the scart to coaxil, or a converter?

    thx

    Ah great. Although I was just about to order this when I read the text more carefully - you've given me the product code for the opposite one (coaxial to optical). I think its QN18U that I'm after - optical to coaxial.

    Ordering now.

    thanks for the help
