Toslink question. TTL from Coax + 3.3 or 5v = optical?
I'm looking at removing a coaxial connection from a boad and install a optical jack. From what I've read, coax is 2 connectors one being TTL the other is the ground. While an optical transmitter used not only the TTL and the ground but a VCc (3.3 - 5v) connection as well.
Can I just take the TTL and ground from the coax and wire in power to a optical transmitter?
Can I split the TTL connection to be able to have both optical and coax?
