Basic: does this cable just plug into the audio mini jack on my MacBook Pro or does it require an adaptor? What about the connection to the TV?

    No this is not for connecting to any of the audio in/outs on any Laptop that I have seen. For that you need a cable with a standard Toslink fiber optic connection on one end and a Toslink Mini-plug on the other.
    Really strangely, even though this is the way all recent Apple laptops and (apparently) the Mini connect for Digital audio, there is not one single cable on the Apple site for this purpose. Just do a Google search for "toslink mini-plug" and you'll get plenty of results.

  • Actually the Apple Airport Express Stereo Connection Kit contains a mini-to-optical digital Toslink audio cable.

  • This type of optical cable is not for Audio / Hi-Fi equipment.
