Hi,

I just got my home theater installed with a really nice receiver. I ordered a Mini-DVI to HDMI cable to hook it up to my MacBook's video, but I have no idea what I should use for audio. This is probably a really easy question, but I have little-to-no experience with home theater systems. Attached is the manual's info on its audio jacks.

Any help is appreciated.

The best is digital optical by Toslink cable. You need a miniplug on one end of the cable for your MacBook and a regular plug on the other end for your TV.

So something like this would work?

Yup, that'll work.
