Hi troops – am a newbie to this forum.

Just need some help with MySky HDi Optical out (S/PDIF) fitting. Have a Bose system and the optical input is RCA female.

What cord (and where from for this)?

Just have done a search on DSE and nothing shows up.

Many thanks

Hi, if the digital input on your Bose system is RCA then you could use the RCA digital out from the HDi for S/PDIF sound.

Any RCA cable should do, coax preferable.

Thanks but the output from MySky HDi is not a fitting am familiar with - it is not RCA or like an optical cord that have.

The HDi has 2 S/PDIF outputs, an optical (Toslink) and a RCA (orange colour) and they are right beside each other and they are both industry standard. The first is labelled optical and the second coaxial.

Is the Bose a standard RCA or more like a mini-plug?
