Let's go trophy hunting!

If this is the wrong forum for this, I apologize.

I keep trying to search Amazon and the internet in general trying to buy a digital optical end plug. Every search I do just shows me cables and converters. I don't want any of that. All I want is the tiny piece of plastic that plugs the hole so that my PS4 will stop making GBS threads out the Red Glare of Doom all over my TV. I have nowhere to move the PS4 from its position.

Does anyone know where I can buy one?

Stick a piece of electrical tape over it.

Do you have access to a 3D printer? Maybe chewing gum, blu-tac or silly putty?

But seriously, what Lowclock said.

If you're not using optical out on your PC, there's probably still a plastic plug in the optical port on the motherboard. But yeah, tape.

Hmm... good idea. I've had to do that with external hard drives before. It just drives me nuts that I can't find one of these things and I know they exist. My old surround receiver came with one.

Nope, that's got the ol' red glare too. The difference is that my PC's optical out is facing a wall so it's pretty much invisible for all intents and purposes.

ASK ME ABOUT MY MICRO PENIS


If you really wanna spend money then these adapters are small and would effectively stop the light

Technically if you dont have electrical tape then this would be cheaper lol

Nothing a little spraypaint can't fix.
