    I just put in a SB Live 5.1 card in w/ a digital output. What i am wanting to do is use that output to go to the digital coaxial input on my home theatre reciever. Well, i need to know if a 3.5 minijack to digital coaxial cable exists and if so where can i purchase it. I tried radioshack, and they didnt have the cable.
    I originally tried to hook up the digital out to the optical in on my reciever w/ a digital out/optical in cable; but that did not work. The tech support guy said i needed an actual cable connection from the output to the input and not an optical one. So, does anyone know if such a cable is out there? Thanks
