I recently picked up the VW37L 37" vizio lcd from wally world & I've ran into a problem...
There's no RCA audio output for the tv. It has a small usb connector shaped output for digital audio output, but I can't find any kind of adapter that will convert from this digital output to analog rca's that I can connect to my surround sound system.
Is there ANY reasonably priced adapter that will do what I need to do??

I see that vizio has a VU37L 37" lcd (sold by sears, dell, etc) that has basically the exact same specs, except it states that it HAS rca audio outputs.

Would I be better off returning my VW to wally world & order the VU from Dell, etc.???
Oddly enough, the wally world & dell prices are within a few bucks.

Thanks for any help!

The connector in question is an optical output, not USB. Either it's time to upgrade your audio equipment or swap out the TV for a different one if that's not an option. If you have any further questions about your display, the LCD Flat Panel section would be the best area, for audio, the Audio section. This area really isn't for either. Good luck.

Thanks,
I wasn't sure which section would best apply here...it's kind-of an LCD question & kind-of an audio question.

I'll probably return the VW & order a VU. The VU has more inputs & both analog (rca) & digital audio output.

This tv is in the bedroom & I need to be able to use either my surround sound system or my headphone setup (so I don't wake up the rest of the house at night).
