I need to have my optical cable from the cable box to TV so i can connect my fire stick and get sound via surround sound. prob is my Philips TV does not have an optical IN
UNBELIEVABLE that a 55" wouldn't but alas, here i am
is there an audio extractor of some sort that I can get to solve the problem or any other suggestions?
the problem is i can't get surround sound with the fire stick via hdmi2
sound from the stick only comes through the TV speaker which is extremely sucky
i suppose if i add an HDMI switch to HDMI 1 (ARC) that will solve the problem?
the Sony has only 1 HDMI in
hence the question
I suppose HDMI splitter is the answer then
yes, both have ARC but according to the SONY BDV-E770W manual, when you use a Toslink setup, it takes precedence over HDMI
The TV is Phillips 55PFL5706
this is so frustrating... sigh
Hey THANK YOU for that
so when the thingamabob arrives, i will connect it to the hdmi output of the Sony HT?
sorry, my speciality is neuroplasticity - I'm a complete doorknob when it comes to setting up AV systems.
