In my previous blog post (Apple Remote - A Quick Complaint) I complained about the "features" of optical audio out of Mac. Last nite Apple realesed a update that supposedly addressed this problem. The update realesed last nite was 10.6.8 Update v.1.1 and 10.6.8 Supplemental Update. At least for me this has not worked. So far I have not found any comments on forums if this update has worked for other Mac users or if there is anything else I need to do to get the update working.
Did the update fix the issue of optical audio not working? Is there anything I've missed? Please drop a line.
PS. I am running Macbook Pro (late 2010) and Snow Leopard.
EDIT: Today I started to watch a mkv-file using VLC-player and hey presto the remote control was able to change the audio volume of VLC-player. So forget Quick Time and use VLC-player.
