Digital audio out port

My Xfinity XG1-P DVR has an orange output that is shaped like a Toslink optical connection but is labeled Digital audio output.  Do I get a toslink to digital converter, else how do I connect to my digital RCA style input device?

will the device that your set top box is connected (TV or Receiver or Sound Bar) receive audio over the HDMI cable? the toslink and coaxial audio are old technology and will not carry the newer audio formats.
