Sorry for the slightly OT post here, but I'm hoping someone here will
have an idea:

My reciever has a number of digital audio inputs, but all are fiber
TOSlink jacks. I recently added a device to my setup that only has coax
out for digital audio. Anyone know of a converter that will take the
coax singal and convert to fiber? (I wish everything was as nice as
squeezebox about including both kinds of jacks!)

MessageMatt,

A quick search revealed the following product.

http://www.am-dig.com/PRODUCTS/Calrad_10-110_COAX___Optical_Converter.asp

I just used google with the search terms "TOSLink to Coax Adapter". Looks like there might be other similar products out there, so looking into some of the other results might be a good idea.
