    I'm attempting to use the optical output rca plug on the xfi titanium hd card and I'm trying to find the correct cable to use.

    The device I'm trying to connect to is a dac with a coaxial digital input. I've been trying to use a digital audio coaxial cable but this isn't working.
    Could anyone recommend a cable I should be using?

    these came with a compatible optical cable.

    No, you can't connect a Light source to a copper input.

    Unfortunately I got this card used and it didn't include any cables.

    I pointed out the optical output and when it's powered shines a red light. It doesn't look like the toslink cable supplied in the box will go in there or am I missing something.

    @Truder
    You are right, it's a mini toslink


    here is the correct link for the cables

    the head of the cable in that picture is for the XFI Titanium that has the little door on the optical ports.

    The Titanum HD uses the the other end
