Default 5.1 Dolby Digital via headphone port - 04-07-2009, 03:52 AM


I'm planning to buy a Dell Mini 9 or 10 in the nearer future.I'd like to connect the notebook to an external amplifier.
Does anyone of you know if there's a possability to output a 5.1 Dolby Digital stream using the headphone port like the ASUS N10J does?
Because my amplifier has only an optical and coaxial audio input I cannot use the HDMI-port of the Dell Mini 10 for audio signals.

Thank you.

The Dell Mini 9 audio line-out port is a stereo analog minijack connection only. It doesn't support digital audio connections. Maybe you could do something with some kind of USB audio device, but I dunno.
