This is a query for a friend of mine. He has a Cambridge Audio DVD89 DVD player and an Onkyo 304 receiver. He also has a TOSLink optical cable. THe problem is that while the Onkyo appears to have a normal (female) TOSLink connector, the DVD89 appears (to our untrained and unfamiliar eyes) to have what looks like a male TOSLink connector at the back. Instead of it being a hole/receptacle, it juts out, and resembles to some extent the connector at the end of the optical cable that we have. THerefore we can't seem to connect the damn things. Does anyone have any ideas. Is what we think is a "male connector" some kind of cap that needs to be removed?
