    I am setting up a mac mini for a HTPC. I would like to get 5.1 out of it. I know the mini supports is but I am unsure of the cable required. I purchased a cheap adaptor from Amazon but it didn't work. I am in the UK so if anyone knows of a good supplier over here that would be great, thanks.

    I think your speakers would need a dolby decoder and you have to connect to them using an optical cable - macs have the 1/8inch style one
