    Hello, I'm having a rather unpleasant issue when I plug an optical Toslink S/PDIF cable in my MBP's headphone jack the optical output does not happen automatically. In order to get it I have to right click on the volume icon, select Playback Devices and select the Digital Audio as the default device.
    I'd like it to be as in Mac OS X, just plug it in and it autodetects which kind of cable I'm using and transmit over it... Any idea how to do it?

    Using the optical audio is supported under the current Boot Camp drivers, because it works on my iMac.

    What I can't vouch for, however, is switching between optical and copper. My iMac has the optical out plugged in at all times, so whether I boot up to OS X or Windows, I get optical sound (i.e. I never change my audio source).
