Have connected my playbar with my ancient but reliable 17´´MacBook Pro. It was a bit bulky, so I invested in a beam, which fits nicely under my 30" display. To watch videos or listen to music while working, I'd like to use the optical out of the macbook, but seem to be unable to get it to work with the Beam.
I have a little adapter which lives on the tip of the optical, so it connects to the "headset" plug (which doubles as an optical out).
However, I don't seem to be able to get the Beam to get any input.
Is there a remedy or am I lost?
cheers & appreciate all the help I may be able to get.
