    G53SW headphone/spdif jack ?? Does it have one ??

    Does the G53SW have an optical spdif combo headphone jack ? Meaning mini tos link.
    I have seen reference to this on certain models but not sure.

    SPDIF and headphones jacks are very different things. It does have a headphone jack, it doesn't have a SPDIF jack. (Since you own a G53SW, couldn't you just look?)

    I missed the "combo" part....my bad. Classy response.

    But again....did you just look at your computer? The jacks are labeled.

    I have looked in the hole with a bright flashlight and a magnifying lens. And it looks like there is a lens at the back of the hole but my eyesight isn't the best anymore. The view is much different when compared to the microphone jack. Turtle beach has a headphone that takes a feed from tos link. The bad is the fact that the pdf manual included with the notebook is for a G53JW notebook and not been updated since 2010. The jack just has the headphone label on it , no writing. But I have made a tech ticket with ASUS Tech. We will see.

    There is some chatter about this on http://www.notebookcheck.com . Someone was referring to a sticker "New Revision Certified Design" as to having a spdif / headphone port. My computer has this sticker.

    Here is the skinny on my notebook. I received my optical cable and plugged it in. I had to set the Realtek Digital Output to default in order to get sound and I did. Now I was only able to get 2 channel digital. To go back to analog audio to hear the dvd via notebook speakers I set the speakers to default and restarted windows media player , viola analog sound again. Unfortunately ASUS TECH support has not answered this question. Either they don't know or they just don't care. Sad either way. I do have the sticker that says "new revision certified design" . I guess i'll save my pennies for the turtle beach headset that takes a digital feed for digtal sound. The cable I have is a "cables to go" model 27015 1 meter velocity toslink to miniplug cable. I think they make one up to 25 feet in length.
