hi, I already have a dvd and sky box connected up via the two toslink outputs on my AV2 and have a toslink output on the tv. With the apple box connected via hdmi to the tv, can I get a toslink to digital in (2 channel) lead or am I thinking about this in the wrong way?
On many TVs if you connect a device via HDMI then it will route audio to the TV and also out from the TV via either analogue or digital s/pdif. Of course you could just route audio directly from the apple TV to the AV2 if you have a spare input.
I can hear it through the tv speakers but would like to use the b&w surround sound set up powered by my naim 300/200/100 amps.
Would there be a sonic benefit going straight from Apple TV (or in my case a Virgin V6 box) direct to the AV2 rather than going to the TV with HDMI then from the TV to the AV2 by SPDIF?
I run my Apple TV, TiVo, BluRay, and Roku to my Sony 55” TV, then one Toslink from TV to AV-2. You have to set the TV to divert audio to Toslink. I.e., turn Internal Speakers OFF.
Thanks, Nick, that's exactly what I do currently too.
Not sure about the sound advantages of plugging sources into both TV and AV-2. My way sounds plenty good, and is so simple, my family doesn’t mind it/likes it.
