I have a 24" Vizio Smart TV with one HDMI port hooked up to an old Toshiba HD DVD through HDMI & the DVD is hooked up through an optical cable to an old Niro Reference Amp & speakers. DVD sound is good. But I need to output sound from the TV antenna and the smart apps like Netflix into the Niro amp.
If I get a HDMI splitter box with 4 HDMI inputs & 1 HDMI & 1 Optical output, will that give me quality sound from the antenna & Smart Apps instead of using the puny internal speakers on my TV? Or can I run a composite to optical cable from the TV to the Niro Amp?
An HDMI splitter won't work because your TV does not output audio onto HDMI.
Does your TV has optical out? Headphones jack? Try connecting any of these to your amp.
No optical out. The TV has a headphone jack. And composite and component connectors. The Niro amp has 2 digital optical & 1 coaxial and RCA plug analog inputs. I have my DVD plugged into one of the optical inputs.
