    I have an Xbox with the component breakout and optical spdif connection but the way my system is configured I can only use a coaxial connection for the DD. Does anyone make a breakout device for the Xbox that has coaxial instead of or including a optical spdif connection?

    You might just need one of this....Make sure u get he toslink to coax adapter and not the other way around.
    The link seems to be wacked..Just go to partsexpress.com and look for a DAYTON AUDIO OPTICAL TO COAXIAL CONVERTER ,Part Number 180-961.

    That is awesome. I've been debating buying an optical to coaxial converter, but the cheapest I could find was around $75. Thank you, Eric!

    I've seen a mod on the net where a guy modded a Microsoft HD Pack to output the audio through a digital coaxial connector. It looked pretty easy if you were handy with a soldering iron.

    Or you could just walk into your local Radio Shack and pick one up from behind the counter. Make sure you get the correct one as they carry both (Tos-->Coax, Coax-->Tos)
