    Hi guys. I have a bit of query.

    I want to connect my TV to my surround sound, however my TV does not have an optical connector and my surround sound only has optical or RCA (red and white) inputs.

    I know I can use a 3.5mm headphone jack to RCA cable but I do not want to do this as I will have to un plug it every time I want to run without the surround.

    The connector on the TV is the orange one in the picture. Ignore the green and blue one shown as that is for the YpBpR or what every it is called.

    I have tried searching for single RCA to dual RCA, digital audio to RCA ect but I can not find anything that looks like it will work.

    The TV is a Toshiba LCD TV and surround is a Sony something Im not sure which one although it is around 6 years old or maybe more.

    Thanks

    That's a digital coax output, have you not got a similar connection on the surround receiver?
