If you can use a soldering iron, you can pretty much make one yourself.  I
just found an old cable which had the 4 pin connector I needed on my mobo.
 Just wired up the other end to an RCA jack I got at radio shack and that
was it.  Of course, this is only for electrical not optical connection but
it's fine for me.  If you need any help with this let me know.
