    I'm somewhat of an HT newbie and I've never used optical cables before. Any help would be appreciated as I'd like to order this within the next few hours.


    The Optical Cable will be going from my DVD player to my receiver.


    Now this:

    nwca.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=products.showDetail&header=Keyword%20Search&subheader=Results&productID=50&flag=Standalone

    seems to have two different ends. One is clear while the other is solid. I assume the solid end is just a protective cap of some sort?

    On the other hand this:

    national-tech.com/cgi-bin/search.cgi?text=optical+cable&type=all

    seems to be a standard optical cable, which is what I need to make the connection.


    Are these two products the same thing or is the first one not a digital optical cable?

    I assume optical cables only come in MALE/MALE configurations. So why exactly does the cable in the first link have different ends?

    (add www to all links)
