[OT] What kind of plug to get MacBook's Pro optical output?

March 27, 2007 | 6:53 am

Hello,

What kind of plug is one supposed to insert in the combo headphones/
optical output of the MacBook Pro to get the optical signal? Doesn’t
seem to be a regular Toslink…

Thank you in advance.

I’m not lucky enough to own a Macbook Pro, but
assuming the same as the Mac Mini, I believe they’re
known as ‘mini-Toslink’.
You can buy mini-Toslink to Toslink converters – I
ordered one just yesterday from Maplin,
cheers
