    5.1 audio from a macbook pro
    -reference, i have:
    +Model Name: MacBook Pro
    +Model Identifier: MacBookPro3,1
    +Processor Name: intel Core 2 Duo
    +Processor Speed: 2.4 GHz
    +Memory: 4 GB
    +Bus Speed: 800 MHz
    +running osx 10.3.5

    +using the spdif optical out, optical cable to a creative audio decoder ddts-100 and creative giga speakers.

    ?? i see an option to enable the optical output and it sounds ok but do not see any surround sound controls in the mac osx.
    +does anyone have input what apple was thinking here?
    +is this a functional format for a 5.1 decoder?
    +is there an airport box that can link my mbpro to a decoder as 5.1 sound

    4me the audio and sound is sooo important on any computer.

    in apple->systempreferences->sound->output->chose sound output
    "digital out ~ built-in-Output" shows up but also
    "the selected device has no output controls"

    -most stuff that has a optical out also has some adjustments
    -is there an airport option to do this w/o the cable-
