No good or cheap way. Extigy does not pass true SPDIF--it down mixes to stereo and Dolby Pro Logic. There is a unit in Europe that has USB to SPDIF but not too much info on it (Asus brand?). Only way I know of is to buy a Dell 8100, Winbook Z series, or similar laptop with SPDIF built-in.
artur, thanks for the link. This is the first that I've heard of this device. Have you used it? How does it do with WinDVD or other DVD software player? I assume you can use Zoomplayer with this as long as you use WinDVD filter for audio. This is a great option for us with cheaper notebooks.
