Hook Up Help: Optical Audio In Wall Install

3414 Views 7 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  W00lly

Look through the wall plates on http://www.partsexpress.com/wall-pla...TOKEN=98786028 maybe you could mix and match the decora plates.

Maybe do a double box with a decora VGA and the toslink with the component in the spot next to it. or just use a pass through and forget the wall plate conection all together. PC to component

Ha! Did a google search for "Toslink wallplate" (why didnt i do THAT before

and got this:


I'll end up doing what you say w00lly. I'll get this plate and add 1 Toslink adapter and 1 USB 2.0. WooT!!
