Hi everyone, I discovered that with the late 2012 model, plugging in the included hdmi to dvi and then pluging in a dvi to hdmi passive cable, I got audio! I dont know how. Can anyone explain this? Im using the Mac Mini Core i7 2.3 Ghz with 4gb ram. It looked like a native 5.1 as i watched a movie and i could hear the right sounds from the surround speakers and the center speaker.
