Hey guys I just picked up a sweet new set of 7.1 DD surround sound turtle beach headphones, completely unaware they use an optical audio cable + USB. I was wondering how I hook this up to my laptop:
HP DV7 3173ca
In the sound control panel I see SPDIF (digial out via hp dock). Online I was reading I can use a toslink in my 2nd heaphone jack? I looked for hp docks didnt see much with optical output? Called hp support and they told me I have a optical device... referring to my dvd rom... great support.... Anyways I'm here looking for some advice so I know what I should buy, or if I can get optical at all.

That just doesn't sound right. Does the manual say anything like that?
You don't think they'd forget to mention a very upscale feature like that now, would you?
The manual doesnt say much and I cant find anything in manual about it. When I go to manage audio devices it says SPDIF (Digital audio via hp dock) I wasnt able to find an hp dock with an optical either? It has to be possible some way through the spdif.
It has to be possible some way
With a HP? Not so much. Have you thought about asking in the HP Community Support forums?
