Sup y’all Didn’t know where to put the topic so please move it if it’s not for here.
So, the issue is that I wanted to upgrade the TV speakers with my stereo system (space and budget constraints) rather than proper AVR, but it turns out that the TV could output through the TOSLINK only in cable mode (for some reason using TOSLINK through HDMI is not supported). But I don’t have a cable, I use the TV with PC and a few consoles (all with HDMI). On the stereo system end I have only RCA and TOSLINK in. That basically gives me 3 options:
(TV) RCA to (Stereo) RCA
(TV) 3.5mm to (Stereo) RCA
(TV) HDMI to (HDMI Switch) HDMI and then from (HDMI Switch) TOSLINK to (Stereo) TOSLINK
Which route should I take? I prefer to use simple solution, 3.5mm to RCA or RCA to RCA, but please let me know what are your suggestions, since I don’t have all the equipment to test for myself and really doesn’t want to make my system more complicated with the switch (another remote, another device taking space on the cabinet) if it’s avoidable.
