So, at first I had the Mini's sound fed to my receiver through an analog cable I use for my iPod. The sound worked, but wasn't great -- and no 5.1.

I recently installed an optical Toslink cable and...wow!...the sound is amazing, and I'm able to get surround sound for movies and great digital sound from iTunes.

In fact, everything sounds better, but now there are no system sounds from my Mini -- no Front Row "pops", no alert sounds, no clicks. All the checks are in place in system preferences->sound, so what am I missing?

Hi Spleener -
I've had my mini hooked up toslink to a couple of different processors - one worked all the time and one needed a setup adjustment first. On that unit I had to manually tell it that the toslink input was hooked up to a dolby-digital (AC3/5.1) device, and I had to also tell it to check for PCM signals coming in on the same input. Until I did that second step, I could hear 5.1 sound, but not system sounds or audio through Firefox, etc.

Don't know if that's helpful for your system, but check the setup options on the input end and see what you can do.

I had the same problem but i've found a function into my amplifier that turn automatically the signal from PRO LOGIC to SURROUND 2.0 so when i have to play a dvd i listen it with DD and then i use only frontal speakers for youtube, firefox, sounds sistem, avi, mp3.

The only problem is to play both mode together...stopping a film a trying to listen a video of youtube is impossibile; i have to quit dvd player and restar firefox to do it
