    Yes-
    I have definitely seen these before. I have used Sima brand before but they were kind of expensive. You might want to try www.partsexpress.com also

    Ryan,

    You can get them at Radio Shack. Optical to Coax or Coax to Optical. I think they are around the $30-$50 range.

    Go to www.mcmelectronics.com and search for product number 24-4445 it is an optical to coax converter (toslink to sp-dif) for about $15. Number 24-4440 is the reverse direction, both need power supply 24-4451 (6v 240mA).
