    hi not to good with hooking stuff up, just got my first mac mini trying to connect it to my surround sound but my receiver has no hdmi port and im wondering which cord i am needing to go from my mac mini to my receiver, and where i can find it. since when i bought it from future shop i asked them and they didn't know which is stupid since there tech guys.

    Yes, as they share the same ports, like Mini Display Port and the analog/digital (optical) audio out port.

    lol 1 last question is is it 1 cable or do i have to buy the adapter? i looked online for just one cable but i keep getting the adapter instead of 1 cord. but my guess is that you have a regular optical cord then plug the 1 end into the adapter? :S

    i use the toslink cable to connect my mini to my onkyo receiver and it sounds awesome. Music, movies, warcraft never sounded better
