Would not work

No directions or typical hook up connections for various applications. Would be nice to suggest various cable types for different applications. A waste of money for me!

      the converter really got me out of a jam. I was using the earphone jack to connect to my sound bar and something came loss inside the TV and it would no longer work.
      When the converter came, I plugged it in and it worked right away.

              Will this product pass thru DTS cable tv signal from my Misubishi DLP to my Sony receiver? Is there a cheaper or more expensive converter that handles different frequencies? I am using one I got from you thru Amazon.

                Yes this product will work for your solution. The Digital Coax cable goes from the TV to our device and then you would connect a Optical from the device to your Bose.

                A:

                This is an audio only adapter. You would need a device with a TV tuner inside of it like a cable box or possibly a DVD player to go from a coax (broadband) signal to a RCA composite video input. Unfortunately, we do not have a device like that.

              Few Questions:

              1.Will it work out of box in India as we have 220-240V or do I need to buy a separate voltage converter (step down from 240V - 110V)?


              2. Is this product under 85 watts?

              Thanks
