It looks like I actually need an HDMI from the xbox to the adapter and not a toslink.

There is a Toslink out from xbox labeled S/PDFIF...would that be the one I want.
Customer reply replied 23 days ago
I'm trying to connect sound out to my stereo receiver using an adapter that converts to RCA. I thought I needed a Toslink out...then couldn't find it on xbox because it has a little hatch over it. I plugged the toslink from xbox into that....then I'll try into the Tashain adapter box that you recommended then rca cables out to the receiver. I hope that is it, otherwise I'll have to send the adapter box back and get something different.

Yes, that is the one you want, you can connect directly to the spdif port on the box

I'm sorry, but I am not electronically minded (66 years old...still using rabbit ears on my TV. I will try it later because I have to go right now. Can I write back on this communication string if, after I return and try it, I have any problems??
Customer reply replied 23 days ago
Should I wait to give you a rating when we are done communicating on this question?

Thanks, also the instructions that came with the Taishan, say to set "digital output of sound source to PCM. I looked at settings on the xbox and didn't see anything that said PCM. I looked at the TV settings and likewise didn't see PCM. What do you think? Talk later.

I think I mentioned that in our prior conversation as well,

you can use optical off the tv, if you have hdmi to the tv, and the tv will have a setting in the audio/sound options to set the output format to pcm or stereo or bitstream.
The xbox should have the same option if you look there again.
