Hi,

I just bought a new 4K TV (brand is VU, local to India) and realized that it has no RCA L/R out. Now it has good h265 support, so I have an external USB that has movies etc and it plays it all quite well. The only issue is the audio.

I have a NAD / DynAudio setup stereo set up which I would like to put to use for the above. Thankfully the TV support ARC.

What device should I be looking at to buy to get the whole USB movie thingie on the TV working with the amp setup? I am confused as I have no HDMI input source here - its just the USB that is the source. So what am I looking for? Please help me out here as I am not getting anywhere with this. Also my NAD amp only has L/R input, so digital out is not acceptable as I think I would need to invest in a DAC too

Thanks,
Ananth

Thanks. But I am in India and I am unable to source something like this at that price. And I get confused seeing some of the specs and features whereas all I want is something that only handles ARC audio extraction. Can you help me out with sourcing it through an Indian online site? I know its asking a bit much but I think I am paying too much for things I dont need out here :(

The cheapest one I could find out here that seems to serve the purpose is

You link to an HDMI input selector with audio extraction. That would work for any HDMI sources external to the TV. It would not work with the built in TV tuner or smart apps.
I see what you mean about the prices. The more expensive ones have the DAC built in to convert digital to analog which you do need. If seems that it would be cheaper to use one of these

with one of the HDMI-ARC audio extractors that have optical audio output.

Oh no. The phenovo did mention ARC, so I thought it would work. Why are you saying it will not satisfy my needs? I thought the hdmi switch was an added benefit for multiple sources.... please help, I need to cancel the order if it’s not going to help. What am I missing?
And assuming I can get a dac from a pal, what would you recommend? I have a very small window to cancel, so please let me know as soon as you can.....
