Apple TV - Optical to 3.5mm mini jack problem.
Apple TV - Optical to 3.5mm mini jack problem. My Apple TV works perfectly connected to my amp via optical cable. However, I want to use the Apple TV just for music at an event (wifi is available so I can stream either with my iPhone or iTunes Match), I don't want to take my full blown hifi so what I just tested was optical out from Apple TV to 3.5mm Aux in on Bose Wave Radio using an optical to 3.5mm lead (cheap and plasticky from Maplin) but there is no sound, I tried another of the same cable and still nothing. There's nothing wrong with the Apple TV optical out as that works perfectly with my amp and there's nothing wrong with the 3.5mm aux in in the Bose Wave Radio as it works fine with a standard 3.5mm to 3.5mm lead. Anybody out there know how to fix this problem. I don't want alternative ideas as I know I could get a Bluetooth adapter or just connect my iPhone by physically etc..,
