Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as expected This adapter enabled me to connect a soundbar via an optical digital connection rather than an analog audio connection, improving the sound quality from TV.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've Got Sound! I ordered this to connect my new LG soundbar to my LED TV. Since my TV did not have an optical outlet, using my new soundbar was delayed. The TOSLINK Optical Digital Audio Converter did the job. It was simple to connect. It would have been nice to have the Coaxial cable included AND instructions to remind one to change TV audio settings once the product is connected. All in all, however, it did the trick!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A real problem solver 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.

I have a regular coaxial cable coming into a tv (Magnavox HD) that only has regular rca female cable inputs NO PLACED TO PLUG IN A COAXIAL CABLE

Asked by: Dick
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.
