Report help with TOSLink in Technical, Tips, and Tricks Posted October 22, 2018 to sfbp: so for the decks with optical output, can I copy from a minidisc into another device, as in a computer ? when you mention the sound cards and their frequency tolerance, is that only in terms of signal going from the card to the player, or is that true in both directions ? what is the name of the analog metal connector you mention, and from what port would that be coming on the other side of that cable ? if the portable is expecting optical signal, what is the point of providing analog signal ? to PhillippeC: are you saying that digital signal can be recorded from the player to a computer ?
