Out of interest what adapter were you getting? Could you get it from tvcables.co.uk? Maplin are a good online store - very efficient but the prices arent the best around

A word of warning if you plan on having multiple devices connecting via an optical switch make sure they are all using the same length cable. I found out the hard way on that one, as a result i have a spare cable knocking about useless

Forget that place roadie..

get it from CPC... Though you have to pay £5 handling charge..might be £6..

http://cpc.farnell.com/jsp/Audio,+Video+&+TV/Selector+Switches/PRO+SIGNAL/PSG00950/displayProduct.jsp?sku=AV14637

The bottom 1, its only £4 before the handling charge.

All optical cables will fit, whatever length you get.

You can pick up optical cables from them for under £2 for 1m length.

They all work equally well, you dont need expensive :)
Dont forget that you will need an extra cable to connect the switcher to your TV, amp etc.

Im sure your right about the quality mate, but the actual lengths need to be the same due to the way optical works. If your running a 1metre cable into the switch and it comes out to a 2metre the signal gets confused and just wont work.

ok!!!!
