Hi guys

I haven't really done any optical digital audio connections before (always used coax digital connections) so just wondering if someone could let me know the name of optical connector on the back of the T-Box?

Am I right in thinking its maybe a Mini-TOSLINK?  (And if my receiver has a bigger version of it, is it likely I'll need a Mini-TOSLINK -> TOSLINK cable?)

Thanks in advance!

It's just a standard TOSLINK connector.

A mini-toslink socket looks the same as a standard 'headphone' socket (3.5mm). Toslink is a square socket with a flap

Thanks for the replies - one thing that does confuse me is that the connector on my receiver looks "taller" than the one on the T-Box. Perhaps its just an illusion though :)
