I ended up getting a soundbar so now I'm wondering if they sell 3.5mm to optical...I have it through 3.5mm to 3.5mm right now but i was hoping I could get a better cable for it

so this piece

http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=104&cp_id=10423&cs_id=1042301&p_id=2671&seq=1&format=2

with this piece would work

http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10229&cs_id=1022901&p_id=3395&seq=1&format=2

I do that the the 1 piece cable works I think the 5mm refers to the toslink end not the mini end

The 5mm is the outside diameter of the cables' jacket. That's the correct cable for your application.. You can read the descriptions tab for more details.

The adapter Phil showed will also work if you already have a Toslink to Toslink cable.
