Mac Mini - digital audio out?

Asking those who are using their Mac Minis as a HTPC:

It's supposed to have digital audio output but i can't figure out what to connect to it. It's a 3.5mm connector, do i buy an RCA -> 3.5mm adapter with my coaxial or do I have to buy a special cable?

Went to the Apple store to ask but none of the guys seemed to know, they told me it was just a regular headphone jack and I had to point out the specs that it was supposed to have digital audio out.

Help would be appreciated.

You'll need a "Regular Toslink to Mini Toslink" cable. A quick Google search will show you what you need.

IIRC, the IR transmitter is in the back of the 3.5mm jack.
