    Sorry if this is in the wrong section. Admins please feel free to move this if it is.



    I have a wireless gaming headset that I want to use to chat on my mac. It has an optical out port on the back of the receiver. What kind of adapter would I need to go from optical out to line-in?

    That depends on what the output is. The cable type is called a mini-toslink plug (1/8") on the Mac side. Search for mini-toslink at your favorite source (like Amazon, for example) and match the other end to the pictures.
