    Is there anyway to mute sound with a key shortcut when playing audio over toslink on a MacBook Pro. F10,F11,F12 only work when playing analog audio.
    I don't really care that I cannot change the volume with digital out but I want to be able to mute from keyboard instead of doing that externally.
    Any suggestions?

    No. Your only solution would be to mute the source app.

    Any ideas how to do that without getting it to the foreground.
    I just want to mute simfy which is a sort of pandora/grooveshark. An online free music playeing client. I want to mute sometimes when they play adds but I'd like to do that without pulling it to the foreground.
    I'd know how to set up a quick gesture with BetterTouchTool to trigger option+cmd+p for mute but if I need to pull the app into the focus it disturbs work.

    How do I send a command to an app that isn't in focus?
