Sure enough, I can get a signal in the input panel in the System Preferences when I use an optical cable. And I can record a track in iMovie and listen back (but can't hear it while recording). Also, I can't record in GarageBand or hear the digital signal anywhere else.
Do I need to get digital speakers to hook up to the optical out? What about recording the digital stream? Do I need something better than GB?
