I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong other than everything apparently. So i bought this tv the other day, in hopes of hooking my Logitech z5300's up to it like my last tv, but, alas there is no jack to accept my RCA to 3.5mm, only composite, ex-link (not sure what that's even for) and toslink. So I went to find a conversion kit, http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=104&cp_id=10423&cs_id=1042302&p_id=8127&seq=1&format=2 bought this little box, along with an RCA to RCA cable, and a toslink to toslink cable for the back of the tv and the box. Got everything in the mail today, hooked it all up to my knowledge as to it being correct, and it turns on, no audio is coming from the speakers.

The little box shows there is power on through the LED, my tv was originally set to tv speakers for the audio output, with the speakers on, no audio coming through speakers, went in, changed it to "external speaker," and everything went mute, even when turning the speakers way up, and when it's on external speaker, you cannot control the tv's volume with the remote. So I assume this little box does not work, or I am doing something wrong, I'm pretty able with electronics, and matching colors/outputs, so I'm at a loss. Please help D:

*EDIT* Upon going back to the website, there is also this one http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=104&cp_id=10423&cs_id=1042302&p_id=6884&seq=1&format=2#description perhaps i simply purchased the wrong box?

*EDIT #2* Just got off the line with tech suppport at monoprice, I did buy the wrong item, going to exchange it for me and I guess I'll post back here in a few days if it works or not.
