S/PDIF, how to get it working please?

Have recently installed a solid state hard drive and installed lion 10.7.3, can I ask how do I get the S/PDIF working again? I have connected an optical lead to the computer and then connected to my Dac but there is no red light shining via the optical lead. Anyone has any advice as to how to achieve this? I do believe that the headphone output carries an S/PDIF signal but ain't sure.

If I buy a port replicator will it work? Thanks.

My knowledge is fairly limited regarding audio, but I'm pretty sure that the headphone Jack socket does not support S/PDIF. That's a basic analog output only.

 

The port replicator/docking station does however have a RCA socket which supports S/PDIF (the socket is labelled SPDIF), but I have no idea whether that is supported under OS X on the D Series. If you have one, try it.
