Works with Apple TV and Smart BoardAt school we have a large screen "Smart Board" but it doesn't have an HDMI connector. I quickly found I could use an HDMI to VGA connector to get the video working through an Apple TV (mine is the third generation Apple TV). But VGA doesn't carry sound. Talked to lots of folks at the Apple stores as well as read a lot online before I finally found this device. Now I plug in a digital optical cable into the that connection on the Apple TV and the other end into this device. Then using RCA cables from this device, I connect to the Smart Board. So now, I can walk around the classroom using my iphone or ipad and show or hear almost anything that is on my iphone (movies, music, app displays, internet access) without being restricted by wires like I used to be and the kids can see and hear it all on the Smart Board.I've only found one app that doesn't seem to work this way, but it doesn't seem to have anything to do with this device.5CautionReceived this item as satisfactorily as possible, and promptly, but before installing it (for a neighbor's high def TV), I called the techs at Gefen to be certain it would operate properly for this application. Answer (from Gefen): no. No because high def channels broadcast audio in 5.1, which this converter is incapable of processing. In other words, it will work with a digital non-high def signal, but not with a channel broadcasting high def with 5.1 surround sound. The solution: Gefen model GTV-DD-2-AA, slightly more expensive, which processes any/all digital audio signals. Not having verified the accuracy of what the Gefen tech told me, at least I want to give buyers a "heads-up" about the product.4Works great for my Vizio tv and Boston Acoustics TVee 20I bought this converter to connect my VIZIO E370VA 37-inch Full HD 1080p LCD HDTV to my Boston Acoustics TVee Powered Soundbar Speaker System with Wireless Subwoofer (Black). I bought the TVee 20 without realizing that it did not have an optical connection. By the time I got it I just didn't want to be hassled with returning it so I started looking for ways to make it work. Google pointed me to this adapter and after reading the reviews I decided to buy it.The converter arrived within two days for free thanks to my prime shipping and works great. I'm not a technical person but this could not have been easier to install and get up and running. The speakers on my Vizio were not the greatest and this converter along with the soundbar has made a huge difference. Now we can all understand what is being said on the shows we are watching.I did not use the optical cable that is provided because based on reviews that I had read I thought one was not included so I ordered AmazonBasics Toslink Digital Audio Optical Cable (6 Feet/1.8 Meters) from amazon which works great. I have not tried the included cable so I don't know if it would be any different but there is one included. I can say that it is a lot thinner than the amazon cable and looks a little flimsy.This converter also comes with several different adapters for your outlet, so if you are in another country there is a good chance there is one in the box that would work for you.I saw some other cheaper converters but the reviews were not as good as this one. I'm happy with my purchase.5Works Great for My PurposesI have a 2nd Gen Apple TV (which is fantastic BTW). I use the ATV and Airplay for streaming itunes music throughout my home. I also use the internet radio feature for the same purpose. As for amplification I use my Yamaha AVR for the home theatre room and then I have an older Onkyo integrated amp that I use to power my in wall speakers in the rest of the house (BTW, running them through a Niles balance box and using in wall Niles volume controls in each room). The problem I had after installing the ATV is that the Onkyo is analog only, with the ATV pushing out a digital audio signal. I purchased and installed the Gefen DA converter between the ATV and the Onkyo using the optical out on the ATV to the Gefen then RCA audio cables from the DA box to the Onkyo. Works great, sounds great.One issue I ran into had nothing to do with the Gefen but I will bring it up here in case anyone runs into something similar. I hooked everything up on the first go round (it was the first time I used optical cable) and it didn't work. I checked the settings on the ATV and it still wan't producing sound. I could see the red light in the cable so I new the ATV was putting out something, why wasn't it working? Was the Gefen a dud? After reading some forum postings, I realized I had not removed the little, hardly noticeable clear covers on the each end of the optical cable. I removed those, reconnected the cable and it worked perfectly.Note: I ordered a toslink optical cable from Amazon when I ordered the Gefen. It turned out Gefen supplies a cable with the DA converter, so if you order one of these, no need for a cable. That said, the Amazon branded cable seemed nicer and more "heavy duty" (Amazon cabling products are usually excellent values) but in the end the Gefen cable would likely have been fine.Again a nice product that is working well for me in my particular application.5Too fragile for reliable TOSLink connectionBack in the box and enroute to Amazon's returns department within 90 minutes of delivery. The TOSLink connector jack is loose and won't make a reliable connection. TOSLink must be the world's worst connector (though the idea of using fiber optics to transmit a digital audio signal is a good one) because not only is it unclear how to orient the cable, the cable simply won't stay in the jack. That might not be Gefen's fault, but the bad connector jack is. Unfortunately, TOSLink is the only option for audio out on my Panasonic Viera TV in order to set up a hearing loop for a hearing-impaired person in the household. Instead, I have to use the output on the cable box ... which precludes use of the hearing loop for DVD's or streaming. Not cool.1Works as advertised AND includes an optical cable so you don't have to buy an additional oneWorks exactly as advertised. I converted my Apple TV audio to analog (RCA) so that I could play the audio through my analog receiver. BE ADVISED that the converter INCLUDES an optical audio cable (2 feet, maybe?) so you do not need to purchase a separate, additional cable. The description did not say that it included a cable and, in fact, when I ordered it, the Amazon site suggested that I needed a separate cable so I ordered it. As I said, above, the converter includes an optical cable so I didn't need to order another one. At first, Amazon wanted me to pay for shipping the cable back (which costs as much as the cable itself, so it didn't make sense) so when I called Amazon, they said that they'd credit/refund the cost of the cable and I could just toss the (additional, uneeded) cable in the trash. I thought that was great.5Poorly made plastic optical port.I bought my very first Gefen Digital to Analog converter 3 years ago and it worked flawlessly. Recently, I bought another one to hook up my other digital TV to legacy analog equipment. When the Gefen item arrived, I found out that the optical port is loose and wiggles when you attempt to connect the optical cable to it. It would simply not click and be secured. I compared it to my original Gefen (from 3 years ago) and my original Gefen still has no problem plugging and unplugging the optical cable. I chalked it up to my bad luck in getting one that was bad. Amazon sent a replacement for the defective one, and what do you know, it has the same defect! Granted that, after looking at the serial, the numbers are just off by 1 digit, which probably mean that perhaps this is a defective batch. I returned both Gefen units and am now buying a different brand converter. Quite disappointed that the build quality has gone down.1Audio Formats Have Changed; Not the Quality of Your SpeakersAt first I wasn't sure if I even wanted to pay this much for a Digital to Analog converter since I was debating getting actual surround sound vs. using a stereo system to supplement the speakers for a very thin (pitiful speakers) LED HDTV, but it does what it advertises and it does it very well at that. Just because your new gadgets use digital audio doesn't mean the expensive set of speakers you bought a few years ago sound bad, so why run out for a new system with this around?-->I frequently use Airplay (iTunes) to stream music throughout my house and adding this converter as an intermediate adds No noticeable lag; the same can be said for regular TV playback, so I'm very pleased with the results.-Bonus: This includes different outlet adapters for other countries (not that I'm likely to use them, but I was surprised to find them in the box).-An Optical Cable is included in the box (granted--a flimsy one--but hey, if it's there and delivers the audio without problem then great....I would've just continued using a Digital Coaxial cable if it meant running to the store for another $20 6ft. cable anyway).-There's a switch on the converter to go between the Coaxial input and the Optical input; I consider this a bonus since now I can have multiple sources go to my speakers that I can switch without much hassle.5It does what they offer well.For the price (58$) it's a good product, fills what they offer and I'd recommend it. It made me avoid to buy a new Sound Component for the moment.It's a good product and works well, but output level seems to be not enough powerful (a little poor) for my Audio Components even at highest volume.As they say, it does not support Dolby 5.1 (and when TV's Surround Option is active, it includes when tuned in an analog broadcasting and TV's Surround Option is on), the sound will be muted (I suppose it will also happens when a digital signal with Dolby 5.1 is received).If you want to always enjoy "Surround" from your TV set or Dolby 5.1, you'd have to buy the more expensive Gefen model (more than 100$) provided that your already owned Sound Components is expensive enough to justify to buy it (if not I would rather buy a whole new sound equipment).Let me also say that they include the Optical Cable with the product so you don't have to buy an additional one.4Works great but WAY too expensive because they have a corner on the marketThis adapter is exactly what I needed to connect TV Ears to my parents television. Without it, they would have had to have switched something every time they went between their DVD player and their cable box. This device allowed me to circumvent that, which is great because they're not very technologically savvy. It is WAY OVERPRICED in my view, but I couldn't find it at my local Radio Shack (not that it would have been inexpensive there!), so I was forced to get it anyway.So, in summary: Works exactly as described but way too expensive because they have a corner on the market5
