I appreciate we are in the middle of a global meltdown and this issue is low down the list, but I’d appreciate any help and wondered if anyone had a solution for getting sound from a TV to the DAC.
I am running an Apple TV into a monitor, I connect to Bartok and Apple TV using Airplay which seems good, the problem is that if Bartok is switched off or selects another source, apple tv then forgets the connection and you need to reconnect it each time through the apple interface which is a pain.
Apple TV only has HDMI out, no optical. I could get an HDMI audio splitter and then connect in via SPDIF. These units start at £20. Do you think this would work and would the quality be as good as Airplay? Or would I need crazily expensive cables to get a good connection? I understand that TV probably has inferior sound to music Streaming but wanted to get as good a connection as possible.
If the above looks questionable I was wondering if anyone might know of a better way to connect these devices seamlessly.
Many thanks and like I say in the grand scheme of it, not a big issue but would love to get it working properly.
Many Thanks, Graham
