I decided to fire up my joggler the other day and was glad to find it still worked so thought i'd take a butchers back here at the wiki/forum and see whats changed, and i'm glad i found this thread!
I bought myself a nice amp recently and thought i'd couple it up with my joggler for use with the squeezebox, i had bought a cmedia external usb soundcard ages ago and having searched for it have come to a conclusion its lost which is most sad
So instead of buying another one have thought about using the wiki page from ARJunior and fitting a toslink adapter.
I've found a few options for connections and thought i'd share as another user above was saying they couldnt find one.

Farnell is the most likely and i'll just add it to my raspberry-pi order (if they let me), although an american seller on fleabay
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/280651676526? ... 1423.l2649
has them for a few quid too. By searching for toslink transmitter you'll find more options, also a part number is DLT1150 but i can't find stock of anyone in the uk and minimum order from china is 1000 units :/
I may simply rip one out of a dead motherboard/sound card if i can find one.
Having read the thread, i see someone has asked whether you can keep the spdif connection alive and not remove the 3.5mm, which is probably what i'll do, my main question is, i'm now running the latest pnp, can i edit the file to make the spdif work, and if i do, does the 3.5mm still work too? Or do i have to disable one to make the other work?
My aim is run the joggler with a dac to my hifi, anyone had good results or were they neglegible enough to render the idea pointless and just stick to the crappy 3.5mm?
Good work on finding how to add the optical out!
