iMac - iMac audio jack issues

A couple of simple ones, I think (hope):

Is the headphone jack on the iMac supposed to be able to push all the way in (i.e. the plastic be plush with the white of the computer) or does it remain slightly out?

I get sound out of the headphone out in OSX (tho' quite attenuated) but nothing at all in Windows (unless you count the tiniest of squeaks). SigmaTel Audio seems to be working fine and recognises that the jack is connected. But sound is completely inaudible. Is this a common problem?

I'd be really greatful for any comments.

Many thanks,

pete.

On both the iSight G5 and the Intel iMacs, the Output Jack is that way. When I plug in external speakers or Headphones the plug sticks out a bit and is not flush. That is because it's not just an Analog output but also it's used for a SPDIF Digital out.

I have a feeling your windows issues are it's stuck in Digital instead of Analog. Pull out the headphone plug and look down the jack. Do you see a Red Light? If so it's in Digital mode. Do you have the latest Bootcamp 1.1.1? Somewhere in updating drivers I thought they fixed that issue.

Yeah, I asked myself that same question about the jack not being inserted all the way. But it works perfectly for me. Didn't know about the SPDIF Digital out.
