The MBP, the Mini and the iMac all have digital out via the headphone jack and it is "optical", but a normal TOSlink optical cable won't work (clearly )Isn't optical the only way to get digital through a headphone jack?
It's called mini toslink adapter or just get a cable with mini toslink to toslink for a cleaner look. It costs a couple buck with monopriceI was using 3.5 to stereo this whole time, but when streaming movies on my mini I want digital surround sound!
So by using the adapter posted above (3.5 to optical) I can have my wishes come true?
Had to make some adjustments on kodi, but it worked! Thx!! Tho for some reason midi settings shows only 2ch, 5.1 option is greyed out.It's called mini toslink adapter or just get a cable with mini toslink to toslink for a cleaner look. It costs a couple buck with monoprice
