There are no troubles or consequences with my hackintosh (it's been rock-solid for a couple years throughout its various hardware changes, that includes 2 other hacks that I run or have ran). My motherboard has onboard spdif. My AV40's however don't use an spdif/toslink connection, and I wanted something better than the onboard line-out. Would it make you feel any better with me stating that I've owned several "real" apple computer products (macbook pro, 12" powerbook, g4 quicksilver, IIe..).
You obviously have -zero- experience with hackintoshes and what they are/are not capable of (with regards to mimicking an apple-branded piece of hardware).
You are indeed being elitist by the simple fact that you are chalking up my issues to "oh, he's using a hackintosh, so its not a real apple product". I appreciate the other folks responses here. I had also been a fan of your posts on here currawong. They've generally been very helpful and informative. I guess if a newbie on here (me) doesn't fit into a certain criteria for your help, then you are less likely to give a response as useful as your previous ones (previous to my post, at least).
I would rather you have not responded to my post, at all. Between ROBSCIX and Ham Sandwich, I've gotten the exact answers I've needed.
