    Does anybody know how can I use the AC3 signal on a portable Compaq Evo N800c... I see on the audio settings a tab talking about SPDIF - AC3 - PCM, but I don't understand how I can send the signal to my amp...

    Please help me

    Looking at the specs for this it only has a headphone out socket, so unless it has a digital output somewhere you can't get SPDIF.

    Thank you Ken,
    I heard that it was maybe possible to have this AC3 signal on the left channel of the headphone output ?
    Can anybody confirm this ?
    If it's true, how can I get it and send it to my amp ?

    If that is possible and you are any good with a soldering iron, you could make a cable.
    The tip connector on a mini stereo jack is the Left side, connect that with co-axial cable to a phono plug and try it. You will also need to activate the spdiff signal.
    This all assumes it is possible of course.
