Need help identifying something
 
What is the name of the audio jack that looks like an S-video jack? I have it on the back of my monitor and it's just labeled as HDMI audio output. I'm trying to find an adapter that will switch it to a digital coaxial, but it makes searching for it tough not knowing it's actual name.

What monitor do you have?

XLR maybe?

The monitor is a Gateway FHD 2400. I doubt that it will help though. I'll take a pic of the actual connection and post it soon. It looks similar to the XLR but it appears to have more prongs.

I actually have the same monitor - gateway FHD2400

The connector you are referring to is actually a proprietary connector for the soundbar.

This is the soundbar on Amazon: LINK

ahhh crud! Thanks Darkrider01. It was so similar to the connection both my 5.1 headsets use that I thought they were interchangeable. After your post I went to line it up and found out that indeed the pins didn't line up and it appears to indeed be proprietary. :( Oh well, I guess I'm not going to bother putting a cable box in my computer room then.

Thanks for the help.

Find out the lines and re-wire it.

Make a converter from stuff you find in Radioshack or whatever

I'm not sure what you need, you can look it up in the Adapters section also they might have ready cables for what you need. MonoPrice
