Post Both analog and digital output with one adapter ?
I need to play sometime s-pdif (with the provided RCA adaptor) for music on my hifi system, but usualy I just need analog audio for multimedia playback.

Can I have analog output when the RCA adaptor is plugged or do I need to unplug analog jack and plus RCA adaptor each time I need digital output ?

It would be nice if this RCA adaptor also provide analog output, this is my question.

In fit-PC2 the line-out and S/PDIF jacks are separate. In fit-PC2i they are shared so you would need a custom cable to have both.

A "do it myself" cable ?
One 4 wires male jack, female RCA, female stereo jack, solder and that's it ?
Or is there any chance to find such a cable ?

There are 4 contacts in the jack.
I don't know of a commercially available cable.

Ok, the wiring is detailed in the fit-PC2i manual :

In case some people want to make it :
jack search and specs for the 4 contacts jack.

In case it helps anyone:

The A/V-output cable that came with my Nokia N85 happens to have exactly right pinout for fit-PC2i audio output. The yellow connector originally meant for video works as SPDIF output (white and red are for analog audio, as usually).

Thanks a lot sfzhi !

I'm sure I have such a cable somewhere, it's one of my old camera cables I guess.

I'll check the pinout ;)

Note that similar cables that come with digital camcorders (and often also sold separately) usually have different pinout, incompatible with fit-PC2i.

I'll double check them ;)
And maybe it will turn out that left audio is actually the spdif, etc. Just a mater of colors, jacks to label properly.
But it could be really wrong (ground on another input jack ring)...
