OK, so HP customer service is officially garbage. Everyone knows that, i just had to get it out of the way before anybody responds "Just ask customer service". I have a HP Pavillion dv6724ca notebook with 2 headphone jacks. I heard that one of them is a digital output jack for 5.1 surround and my sound card specs say that i have digital output capabilites (go DXDIAG.exe - Realtek Digital Output), but I cant get it working. I have a 3.5mm mini TOSLINK to TOSLINK connected, i have enabled my digital output in Realtek HD Audio Manager, i have checked the supported formats in my Realtek Digital Output properties.....but still nothing. Am i missing something?

Without connecting any plug you should see some blinking light coming from the phone jack. This is assuming that it is a Toslink port. If there is none and you are sure that it is Toslink port perhaps the optical cable might be defective. Or, if there is no light coming then it might also be an ordinary stereo phone jack. So if this the case try using a stereo plug and see if you can hear any sound.

I don't think your model HAS the headphone/mini-toslink SPDIF jack, RE: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docnam
