If your HDTV has an optical AUDIO OUT jack, you can use it to connect the optical cable to the DSS2 and feed sound from the gaming console to the DSS2

If your PC or Mac does not include a digital optical output, then you will need to purchase an "Optical S/PDIF Adapter"  

This adapter is inserted into the 3.5mm headphone audio output jack on your PC or Mac to provide a digital optical output
