      Hello! This cable is designed for chromecast systems. There are certain adapters that will allow you swap connection types such as this one: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/insignia-optical-coaxial-digital-to-analog-converter-black/4226000.p?skuId=422600 However, it depends on your television having an audio output. We recommend that you check with your TV's manufacturer for additional option on connecting audio systems to the set. Regards, Daniel T. - Insignia Support.

      Hello Jan, this cable is plug and play so as long as you have matching jacks on your devices it should work just fine. Omar S. - Insignia Support.

    Could I plug this into my iPad and connect it to a sound bar?   (2 Answers)

      No. The iPad does not have optical outputs. Although, if you were streaming to another device that does have optical outputs, like a Chromecast, then it would work, but I do not think that is what you meant. If you want to connect your iPad output for sound to be played on a soundbar, please consider getting a soundbar with BlueTooth(tm) capability.

      Generally, the digital audio output cable would be a Toshlink to Toshlink cable and not the mini-Toshlink that is associated with this product. Actually, for digital signal, it can also be a coax cable, but most modern systems now use either the optical Toshlink cable or HDMI cable to transmit digital audio signal, or, in the latter case, audio and video signal. Of course, there is also the analog connections as well, but the digital is the route to go if your equipment is capable.
