View Full Version : Mac Mini audio question (HDMI and optical)

Does the new Mini with HDMI simultaneously output audio through the HDMI and optical port if both are connected? I'm thinking about getting one to connect to the TV by HDMI and by Toslink to my receiver for use with Plex. However, I don't want to have to enable audio out the optical port whenever I decide to use the receiver for 5.1 decoding. The current Apple TV does this (along with audio out the RCA connections).
