    Am I nuts, or what? I thought I was supposed to have a "Line Out" audio output option on my MBP. I'd swear that it used to be there. Now all I see is Internal Speakers and Soundflower (2) and (16). I also see my USB Headset when it's plugged in. Where is my Line Out? I think it's gone missing!

    OK - I answered my own question. Line out shows up in the list when I plug into it. But, it shows up as "Headset." I was missing it because I have a USB Headset that also shows up in the list. So, "Line Out" is actually "Headset." I suppose that's because the output is the headphone jack, and it's probably at headphone rather than line impedance.

    Haven't checked it in awhile, it may be listed differently based on using a stereo mini-plug (like a headset) or mini-toslink (optical) also.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
