Solved! Connecting ROKU to surround with no HDMI

Dec 18, 2019
I have an old Lexicon DC-2 processor. I have a Pioneer Elite 1150 TV. And I have a Roku that only has an HDMI output.

I tried connecting the TV's optical out to the Lexicon. The problem, however, is that this is a different input than the HDMI inputs. So I get no sound or streaming content on it.

Does anyone have any suggestions how to connect the Roku or TV to the Lexicon so I can streaming content through my home theater system?

I would suggest you get an HDMI input selector with audio extraction. Connect all your sources, including the Roku, to it. The HDMI output of it goes to the TV. The optical output of it goes to the Lexicon.
