Hello Mac Users! Just picked up a brand new Mac-Mini yesterday.
I got the 4gb model and ran a software update right out of the box.
I have it hooked up to my Sony Bravia TV via HDMI, But I also want to
run the mini-toslink cable into my Anthem MRX-300 for 5.1 audio
from any HD content off of Netflix or itunes. I know that I should just
run the HDMI directly into the AVR, but the wife is terrified of my audio
rig! I have my Directv hooked up in a similar fashion. My TV has a
toslink output, but I am pretty sure it downmixes to 2.0 pcm.
My question is will this work OK?? I have Googled until I am blue
in the face,but the info is confusing to say the least. Not sure as
to what settings or changes I need to make and where.
I haven't used Mac in over a decade so I guess I am a NOOB.
Edit: my TV optical audio out only works when using the built in tuner
