    I have a macbook 2,1 running 10.5.8 and I cannot get it to output digital audio. I do not have an option in the sound pref pane to change from analog to digital. Any ideas?????

    Thanks.

    Have you connected an optical TOS cable between Mac and receiver?

    yes, and I have no output. I do not have a digital out tab in the sound menu for system pref's . It's like the computer does not support but I have a macbook pro here as well and it too does not have that tab.

    There is NO "digital out" tab, there is only a listing of outputs under the Output tab.

    Check System Preferences > Sound > Output or OPTION/Alt click the sound/volume icon in the Menu Bar and tell us, what is listed and checked as Output Device.

    plugged in cable and it switched to headphone built-in output

    ----------

    do believe I am using a bad cable, will try a different one in the morning.
