    Can someone tell me what cable I need to connect to my digital out on the back of my Audigy 2 sound card? Thanks.

    1/8th" Male is what connector it uses. What are you connecting to it?

    I know what the jack looks like. I need somebody to tell me a cable I can connect into it. I can't find a thing. Thanks.

    Any copper cable would do fine, as long as you get the polarities right. The cable should have positive, negative, and ground all connected.

    Okay, if you remember, I need to know what cable I should use. Any copper cable doesn't tell me a thing. I need one that will fit. Like you said, it's 1/8", and it's coaxial.

    So you are trying to go from the 1/8" jack to what?

    A television that uses that standard size RCA thing.

    Aaah. You would want a 1/8"-to-RCA Stereo "Y" adapter, then. Unless your TV has digital audio inputs, however, you will probably be going from where the front two speakers plug in to your card.

    digital out to a tv? uhh... i'd like to know what tv you have.

    what you're likely looking for is one of these to go from your analog output.

    co-axial into something that looks like a mono jack does the job for me.
