Your best option is to plug directly into your receiver if it has an HDMI port. If it does but they are full, you can get an external switch to change sources, like this: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00B46XUQU/. If neither of those options work, an audio extractor is your next option, like this: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BIQER0E/. This will still output HDMI video, but also send the digital audio out an optical port so you still get surround sound, though you will probably get a few milliseconds of lag, probably nothing too noticeable. In the magical event you don't even have optical, it still has stereo outputs which, for music, will be just fine.

u/jason22internet · 9 pointsr/Chromecast

option 1. get a fancy stereo that has HDMI passthough. you plug the CC into the stereo.

option 2. get a fancy doohickey - an hdmi audio extractor

option 3. run an audio cable out of the TV's headphone jack and into your stereo

u/zombine210 · 7 pointsr/wiiu

i'm using a monitor too. i bought a J-tech hdmi audio extractor from amazon. plug in the WiiU hdmi to it and use a coax or optical to the sound system.
i've since bought a new receiver with HDMI inputs but this thing worked pretty well.

u/elai · 5 pointsr/wiiu

You can just get one of these guys for $30, it will extract the audio for you out of the hdmi cable into a 3.5mm port:


I have this one myself, I just use a $2 RCA to 3.5mm jack convertor cable in addition to it. That way I could use the optical 5.1 out in the future if I wanted to:


u/unwiredben · 5 pointsr/Roku

Something like https://www.amazon.com/J-Tech-Digital-Premium-Extractor-Converter/dp/B00BIQER0E should work. You'd need to force the Roku's output to PCM only, and it would pull out the L+R audio to feed into the receiver.

u/grem75 · 5 pointsr/AskElectronics

You couldn't come close to buying the parts required for less than you can get an already made solution.

They are $40.

u/OLDF_ART · 4 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I have my Switch, 360, and ps3 hooked up to my monitor using an HDMI switch, and an Audio Extractor. This works super seamlessly, I just turn on whatever console I like and the Hdmi switches and I am able to get digital audio out automatically. I use a headset mainly, one of my friends have a logitech z213 speakers and they sound pretty nice! Hope that helps!

u/umdivx · 4 pointsr/hometheater

This is a several piece system you'd have to get.


First is an HDMI audio extractor then an BT transmitter and if you want to be able to switch between the Roku and the TV tuner you'd then need an HDMI switch.


At that point with all that in place, you honestly would be better off getting a receiver. You can get a cheap receiver, like the Denon S530BT from Accessories4less.com for $150 then pair that with some cheap speakers and you're already better than all that equipment above.

u/Cygnus912 · 3 pointsr/Chromecast

Has anyone considered getting a regular Chromecast instead of a Chromecast Audio and using one of these HDMI Audio Extractors (https://www.amazon.com/J-Tech-Digital-Premium-Extractor-Converter/dp/B00BIQER0E) to cast just the audio?

u/mapin · 3 pointsr/Chromecast

Yep here is what you need:

Alternatively, you can use the audio output from your tv if your tv has one. However that requires that you keep your tv on when listening to just music.

u/robotdinofight · 3 pointsr/hometheater

you could use an hdmi audio extractor to extract the 5.1 and send it via an optical TOSLINK cable that your receiver supports: https://www.amazon.com/J-Tech-Digital-Premium-Extractor-Converter/dp/B00BIQER0E

u/MoogleMan3 · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I used an hdmi audio extractor to do what you're asking for a while. It worked great. You can even get an hdmi switch with audio extraction if you have more than one console.

Switch/consoles to the hdmi switch/extractor inputs, output to monitor, audio output to speakers.

u/inferno10 · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

The thing you're looking for is called an HDMI audio extractor. This one extracts the audio to optical 5.1 or RCA stereo.

How about a HDMI audio extractor? That way it stays digital until it gets to the Sonos DAC. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BIQER0E/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_jD4eAbDD15YSG

u/fischurr · 3 pointsr/Rockband

I happen to have an RCA Audio Out port on my TV that I pass directly to headphones. Everything is wired and I just calibrate to that.

If you don't have those, you might want to look into an HDMI Audio Extractor. I know it's not exactly a software fix with your current setup, but shouldn't be too pricey to get working.

u/ob2kenobi · 2 pointsr/Roku

I bought one of these $25 HDMI audio extractors for my mom, specifically to use with her Roku and an old receiver. It's been working great for her.

I have a 2016 Roku Ultra that I use the optical connection on, and I don't care for it. The 4K video side is great, but the optical audio has problems. There is a delay every time before the audio starts up, even if I just do something as small as pause a video. Some times it'll just lose audio completely, not even on menus, and I have to reboot the entire device.

u/Sir_Chasm · 2 pointsr/buildapc

Oh man, do I have an update for you.

Pretty much right before you responded yesterday, had I doubled down and bought the RCA version of the HDMI audio extractor I had (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00BIQER0E/ref=od_aui_detailpages01?ie=UTF8&th=1) and figured I'd just return both it if it didn't work.

For reasons unknown to me, it worked. I plugged in an RCA to 3.5mm adapter I had and boom. I have no idea what happened, but I just figured I'd let you know and anyone who will happen to come across this thread.
Once again, thanks for all your help!

u/Ratchet1332 · 2 pointsr/AstroGaming

Had the same issue and bought this one. You're gonna need two HDMI cables to use it, and every once in a while you have to unplug it and plug it back in because it'll shut off the optical port in itself for some reason. Works fine, though.

u/Rabitepoo · 2 pointsr/PS4

It's working great so far, but there are a few quirks. I have to manually toggle the optical input with a remote to switch between audio for my PC and PS4, but i'm not the type of person to have videos streaming while i play games. If i really wanted to, i could plug a cord into the AUX on my monitor and my Logitech 2.1 speakers to have concurrent audio.

Here's my setup:
PS4 HDMI is hooked into this box to split the audio out of the hdmi
HDMI from that box connects to my monitor and the optical cable plugs into this optical audio switcher
One optical cable goes from that switcher to my PC and the other connects to the speakers here

I haven't noticed any signal degradation despite the double boxes and extra cables stretching into every direction.

u/Turboedtwo · 2 pointsr/raspberry_pi

I talked with my wife about this and she mentioned you'd probably need some kind of receiver to split the audio, otherwise you'd just have two channel. That got me thinking and I looked around but didn't really find anything that would work. There's HDMI > DVI + audio but only with two RCAs for audio. BTW that LCD is awesome....I want it.

I found this...it could be a start.


u/cnhn · 2 pointsr/CommercialAV

odds are you can't. those connectors are already "powered" and are meant for the purpose built speakers.

you can try something like this but I still doubt it will work.


you will almost assuredly need to pull the audio from your source first. if your cable box or comptuer doesn't have an audio output, you can insert something like this between your source and the display and pull the audio that way.

u/anonanon1313 · 2 pointsr/audio

Search Amazon for hdmi audio extractor. Is this what you need?


u/TheSanctified · 2 pointsr/headphones

> o up to the HDMI extractor, which would then send the video to the TV and the audio to the SPDIF out.
> My worry was that I wouldn't get any sound from either my TV or my receiver if I hit mute on my receiver, so I tested it out. I muted my receiver and I'm still getting audio on

Yes. Most if not all receivers allow just HDMI passthrough. If you are getting sound on your tv and not from the speakers then you are good to go with the extractor.

Such as, http://www.amazon.com/J-Tech-Digital-Premium-Extractor-Converter/dp/B00BIQER0E/ref=sr_1_14?ie=UTF8&qid=1451714037&sr=8-14&keywords=HDMI+audio

There are plenty out there. How would you change the volume? Does the receiver remote still change the volume? Of course, you could just get a headphone amp with a remote (assuming you don't want to get up).

u/felipusrex · 2 pointsr/AppleTV4

If your sound bar has an optical audio in you can extract the HDMI audio to optical with one of this.

u/adrianmonk · 2 pointsr/audio

One way would be to get an HDMI audio extractor. I've never used this one but J-Tech Digital has one for $27. It will basically give you an optical output and then pass the video along to your TV.

Or your TV might have an optical output as many of them do, so you could just plug the e10k DAC/amp into that.

u/PrpleMnkyDshwsher · 2 pointsr/Chromecast

An HDMI audio extractor would work if you had external speakers.


HDMI out to the tv, l/r or spdif audio to an amp or powered speakers.

If you don't have external speakers, you will need something like this:


and use a component input on your TV. You need one of these with a scaler because I assume since the TV is old it won't accept 1080p over component so you can't use one of the cheaper straight HDMI to component adapters since the chromecast will output 1080p with no way to select.

u/DecayingVacuum · 2 pointsr/googlehome

See if you can find a Chromecast Audio for sale somewhere (the product was discontinued earlier this year). The Chromecast Audio provides a 3.5mm (or SPDIF) output which you could plug into the Line-In jack on your PC.

More complicated and expensive, you can get a regular Chromecast, and an HDMI audio extractor, which again provides an audio output from the HDMI source of the Chromecast, and then into the Line-in on your PC.

u/travipross · 2 pointsr/Chromecast

You'd be piggybacking another device in the chain, but something like this might work for you.

The top review on the page states that it can be used with chromecast to separate the audio and video streams.

u/niuguy · 2 pointsr/hometheater

Composit? Oh god burn it with fire. Literally the worst picture quality possible.

EDIT: Wait, do you mean component? Wait, you mean audio. Ok, hmmm. What about this? http://www.amazon.com/J-Tech-Digital-Premium-Extractor-Converter/dp/B00BIQER0E/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1420041827&sr=1-1&keywords=hdmi+audio+extractor

Although honestly you should think about finding a cheap used hdmi receiver for cheap. They've gotten very cheap in the last few years.

u/egamble · 2 pointsr/audiophile

This is a bit of a tricky setup, but as long as you only want to use the microphone on your PC it is pretty achievable. Also if you want to play the sound off your PC and use a gaming console, you will require a mixer to play both sources. If you don't require this it makes your setup less complicated.

Either way you will need an HDMI audio extractor, this should work: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BIQER0E Plug that into the output of HDMI switch then:

Setup 1 - With mixer. https://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=614305 plug the output of the HDMI audio extractor and your PC (using 3.5mm to RCA cable). Headphones plug into mixer. This will not sound as good as option 2.

Setup 2 - With DAC. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0722FRQQ7 . Plug the output of the HDMI extractor (using an optical cable) and the PC in using a USB cable. Select one or the other using the toggle switch and it will play that source out to the headphones.

I would recommend setup 2, as the external DAC will be of higher quality.

As far as microphones go, try a USB one (this is a decent cheaper one, you can go more or less expensive: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B014PYGTUQ) to reduce the audio noise your friends are telling you about.

u/McShizzL · 2 pointsr/miniSNESmods

My monitor doesn't have a 3.5 out for sound, so I use something like this: https://www.amazon.com/J-Tech-Digital-Premium-Extractor-Converter/dp/B00BIQER0E/

It works well enough. I use it for all my hdmi devices: Wii U, PS4, Firestick, SNESClassic.

This is the actual one I bought:
But the one I posted before has better review ratio.

My biggest complaint is that is plugs in with a powerjack that needs to take up multiple slots. It would be swell if it were USB powered. Let me know if you have any questions?

u/ImaginaryCheetah · 2 pointsr/BudgetAudiophile


unfortunately, i'm not familiar with any of the brands you mention, so i cant offer an experienced opinion.

i'm using https://classdaudio.com/cda-250-power-amplifier-module.html, with audio from https://www.amazon.com/J-Tech-Digital-Extractor-Converter-JTDAT5CH/dp/B00BIQER0E/, using the hdmi out on a Raspberry Pi running Volmio.


computers are notorious for being a noisy source, when using them as an analog input.

a usb sound card very often helps because it isolates the audio ground from the computer ground.

certainly worth a try :)

u/El_JohnSmith · 2 pointsr/audio

Yeah, I'm sure that would work great, but it looks a bit overkill for my current setup. Anything that's a 5.1 receiver is probably gonna be pricey and I'll want nice speakers to go with them too.

Think I'm just gonna try one of the cheapo hdmi extractors u can nab off amazon for like $25 https://www.amazon.com/J-Tech-Digital-Extractor-Converter-JTDAT5CH/dp/B00BIQER0E/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=audio+extractor&qid=1564162667&s=gateway&sr=8-3

u/Magnetic_Tree · 2 pointsr/buildapc

> Does every monitor have an audio output

Very few monitors I've seen have a dedicated audio out jack

> since monitors don't have speakers

Some monitors do have speakers

> if it doesn't [have audio out or speakers] then I can't listen to the audio?

Right. I'm in a similar situation. Neither of my monitors have speakers or audio out. I got this adapter which splits Hdmi into Hdmi+audio.

(My PS4 and PC feed HDMI into an HDMI switch, then the switch goes into the adapter, which then goes to my main monitor)

u/JohnBooty · 2 pointsr/BudgetAudiophile

> you'd get by just fine with an smsl amp for less than 100, especially since you're only gonna use 2 speakers

Disclaimer: Have not personally used a Chromecast.

OP mentioned their TV has no audio output. If I understand correctly, the Chromecast only has an HDMI output. So there'd be no way to get the audio to the SMSL amp.

An HDMI audio extractor might work. OP could go Chromecast-->HDMIExtractor-->TV. I've never used one, but they exist. I'm slightly unsure how well it would work. My experience is that once you start chaining weirdo HDMI shit you can run into audio sync issues sometimes.

u/Allan_add_username · 2 pointsr/techsupport

Just kidding! Looks like I didn't do my research. Here is a $35 box which will split an hdmi signal to hdmi+audio. One more question though, do you see any additional ports on the tv? Some alternative boxes support optical audio.

u/ttimmahh · 2 pointsr/hometheater

What are you feeding the audio into?

There are some work-arounds for a lack of audio-out on the project, like an HDMI audio extractor such as this: http://www.amazon.com/J-Tech-Digital-Premium-Extractor-Converter/dp/B00BIQER0E

u/lone_turkey · 2 pointsr/xboxone

no idea what cables you are using as sizes do not help ;)

1/4" = RCA separate leads for L R ? 1/8" = 3.5mm headphone?

one option is to extract audio from hdmi


taking audio from optical is also fine, I just assumed the speakers where next to the monitor so having audio from the monitor lead would be tidy.

optical to RCA is much cheaper if your happy to run the extra leads


u/Umlautica · 2 pointsr/audiophile

I don't know if this helps you at all but it might help to share what I'm doing to see another approach. It's messy but works really well.

  • NVidia Shield (USB) -> MiniDSP DDRC-24
  • XBoxOne (Toslink) -> 3x1 Toslink Switch -> MiniDSP DDRC-24
  • TV (Toslink Out) -> 3x1 Toslink Switch -> MiniDSP DDRC-24
  • Logitech Harmony Hub and enough blasters to make it all work

    I do the main volume control on the MiniDSP but added 12dB passive attenuators to bring the 2vrms MiniDSP output to my amp's sensitivity level which in theory will counter any low level resolution problems. I couldn't tell you if it does though.

    I don't really need to use the TV's Toslink output since I removed the Chromecast 2.0 from the equation.

    The XBox and Shield have settings for stereo output and handle the downmixing. HDMI only carries video for these two.

    You probably already know about them but HDMI audio extractors like this one typically have a downmix switch.

u/crackills · 2 pointsr/techsupport

Man, this is not an optimal setup. That AV receiver is really obsolete and the TV is not much better. Ok so HDMI to DVI actually doesn’t lose any video quality, essentially they’re same signal with a different plug and no audio. The 3.5mm jack is 2ch analog (red/white RCA plugs), not 5.1ch digital. The best way (only maybe) to do this is to get a box called an ‘HDMI audio extractor’ to pull the digital audio out of the hdmi cable on the way to the DVI port and feed it to either a digital coaxial (orange RCA plug) or SPDIF optical cable (the squarish flap usually next to the orange RCA plug).

Heres an example.

I noticed that SPDIF optical is far more common so that’s probably the cable you’ll have to use. This will give you the typical 5.1 digital surround you’re looking for.

Theres cheaper boxes, reviews are less favorable. Just remember the hdmi cables might be directional.

u/WATCH_DOGS_SUCKS · 2 pointsr/simracing

To be fair you probably don't need to get a TV. If your monitor has an HDMI port, then you could play your PS4 with it. If the monitor doesn't have speakers, you could use an HDMI audio extractor or just use a USB headset. Pretty sure the PS4 supports Bluetooth audio too.

u/TemptedTemplar · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

u/djdanlib · 1 pointr/livesound

I use this $30 device. It feels like cheap plastic and it can be a little awkward with the port placements, but it gets the job done just fine.

u/AlexHimself · 1 pointr/fireTV

I bought one of these devices http://amzn.com/B00BIQER0E because my TV's (along with most TVs) audio out is only 2 channel, even the digital out.

You can connect FireTV/Chromecast to it, then send one signal to the TV to play, and the audio signal to your surround system and it'll process it correctly.

It actually didn't work for me, but that's the theory.

u/linuxweenie · 1 pointr/raspberry_pi

A little more expensive route is to use an adapter - this should do the trick, assuming the projector has RCA or SPDIF inputs. Use HDMI cable from Pi to adapter, HDMI/VGA adapter from this adapter to the projector. RCA cables from this adapter to projector for audio.

u/uponthemoon · 1 pointr/Chromecast

u/Revrak · 1 pointr/sonos

sorry i swear i was on the nintendo switch subreddit. lol my bad.

edit as others mentioned if you're connecting the roku through hdmi to your tv and then the tv to your bar using toslink its possible that your tv doesn't transcode to dolby.

my tv doesn't. i got a toslink switcher + this https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00BIQER0E/ref=oh_aui_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 thing to get the audio and a harmony hub to integrate the mess.

u/TRUMP2016BUILDWALL · 1 pointr/hometheater

I have these and they both work well, currently using the hdmi one




I have an old receiver so I use this mod which actively transcodes new audio formats to something my receiver can handle. I use the SPDIF out but you can use the RCA out. You won't need the mod for stereo but I'll link it anyway.


Issue is the mod doesn't work with USB out, which I prefer for its simplicity and (maybe better?) dac. The first hdmi audio extractor I got wouldn't work right, I had to replug everything in every time I turned my projector on, this one has worked reliably every time

u/onewaypockets · 1 pointr/youtubetv

u/FranknStein7 · 1 pointr/hometheater

The KRP-500M has no audio function at all unless the optional speakers are installed. Do you have speakers on your KRP-500M? Also how are you sending audio to your sound system? HDMI or optical?

With a device like a Roku, ideally what you do is plug HDMI from Roku to audio receiver, and then send video to the KRP-500M via the video out on the audio receiver.

Edit: Does the HT-J4500 even have an HDMI in? I guess it's a blu-ray player with HDMI out only? That's part of your problem. I don't think you're going to be able to get sound from the Roku. I don't think the KRP-500M has any audio outs either, only audio in. You might be able to get things to work with an HDMI splitter like this: https://www.amazon.com/J-Tech-Digital-Extractor-Converter-JTDAT5CH/dp/B00BIQER0E/ref=sxin_2_ac_d_rm?ac_md=1-1-aGRtaSBhdWRpbyBleHRyYWN0b3I%3D-ac_d_rm&keywords=hdmi+optical+splitter&pd_rd_i=B00BIQER0E&pd_rd_r=a59ec333-434b-477c-a3e8-7b642999f681&pd_rd_w=GQ4Hh&pd_rd_wg=leitC&pf_rd_p=39892eb5-25ed-41d8-aff1-b659c9b73760&pf_rd_r=XGWE6EPHMDYA5EXJY33R&psc=1&qid=1572482045. You would plug the Roku into that, send video to your KRP-500M using HDMI, and audio to your sound system using analog or optical.

In the longterm I would recommend investing in a traditional audio receiver with passive speakers.

I was in the exact same situation as you! I was just about to buy an HDMI 1 in -> 2 out splitter, and an HDMI to VGA converter with builtin cinch output, when I found this little baby


right here. It has one HDMI input and output, as well as analog and digital audio output. It passes the HDMI signal through, while also extracting (but not removing) the audio signal. That was the perfect solution for me, as I already had a DAC at home, so this solution does not compromise audio quality. This device


seems to be the US equivalent of this device. Hope this helps!

Granted I have a PS4 Pro so it uses an Optical Out, but I got my setup to work differently. I run audio cable from my PS4 to a converter box I got on Amazon then into my 'Line In' on my PC via a 3.5mm jack. This allows me to have both sounds at the same time and I can control the levels via my PC.

For the Slim you could use a HDMI audio extractor into a 3.5mm jack into your PC and get a similar result I think. Something like this: https://www.amazon.com/J-Tech-Digital-Premium-Extractor-Converter/dp/B00BIQER0E

You need an HDMI audio extractor into Toslink or something, then send that to the Modi if you want everything to go through the Modi.

Something like this

yikes you could buy one of these perhaps to get an optical output: https://www.amazon.com/J-Tech-Digital-Premium-Extractor-Converter/dp/B00BIQER0E

Hi mate the best way whoud be to pass it through a " hdmi to hdmi audio extractor". order something like this when you are ordering your hdmi hub. It might be a bit messy cabling wise but will get the job done.


u/Sejjy · 1 pointr/audiophile

wait okay so for option three you mean this?

so what i could do is pass an hdmi cord from my laptop to this and another cord the other end to the t.v. and then connect it via a digital cable or whatever to the receiver?

u/big_red__man · 1 pointr/Chromecast

If your projector doesn't have an audio out then there are things that will split the audio out of your HDMI signal. Then you can plug in your speakers directly. This was the top result when I googled it but look around. There could be better ones for you.

I guess one option is get an HDMI audio extractor and hook my speakers up to that?

Thanks everyone. I'm going to try using this . The comments seem to have a number of people who were in a similar position as myself. Hoping it works.

u/ntlord · 1 pointr/hometheater

For the office. You just need this:
Yea, I know its dedicated, but it seems like you have the extra wiring. If not, then HDBaseT is your option

Regarding your second monitor, all you need is this:


Regarding the double switching, you could do that. Personally, I would just spend the money to do it right. But, It's not my money :) I bought my 6x6 Gefen off of ebay for like $1100 bucks, but it was admittedly a pretty good deal.

You can use a device like this to give you audio ports to work with, https://www.amazon.com/J-Tech-Digital-Premium-Extractor-Converter/dp/B00BIQER0E
I use the same device to send out audio to a soundbar so i can listen to music with the tv off.

This seems to have great reviews on amazon.
According to the reviews, quite a few use it with SONOS to increase format compatibility. The 4K version is 2x the price of the 1080p version. Some TVs have an HDMI out (For Samsungs, it’s a semi-hidden Mode) so you could save and just buy the 1080p version.

You might want to look into getting some sort of breakout from your HDMI output from your Kodi source for the audio portion, so that you're feeding 5.1 audio to your amp. Right now, your amp and speakers are only being fed 2.0 stereo audio in analog (basically the lowest common denominator of multi-channel audio).

Something like this would allow you to pipe 5.1 audio to your amp, provided it has an HDMI or optical S/PDIF input. Then again, if your TV has HDMI or (more likely) optical (or RCA digital) S/PDIF audio output, you could feed that into your amp for the cost of the cable alone. This all assumes that your amp is capable of accepting some sort of digital audio at all.

All that to say, however, if your amp is HDMI-enabled, you're probably better off configuring it the way it was intended, and use your amp as a signal selector, and run it as Kodi device > amplifier > TV over the best signal type your devices support (HDMI would be best, followed by YPbPr analog RCA connectors, S-Video, and then composite RCA video. For audio, the hierarchy would be HDMI, S/PDIF [Digital RCA or Optical], 6-channel RCA analog, and finally RCA 2-channel analog)]

Based on what you're saying here, I am guessing your amp is only capable of 2-channel RCA audio, in which case, get yourself a new amp, son! (As you, to your credit, say you plan to do.) If that's the case, save up for a nice HDMI-enabled amp (they basically all have HDMI nowadays). I'm partial to Denon, myself, but they can be on the pricey end of the spectrum.

Edit: And to actually answer your question: until you upgrade your granddaddy of an amplifier, you want to set Kodi to 2.0 audio. Also, consider sending the audio straight from the Kodi device straight to the amp. You'd introduce fewer points of failure/interference that way, and perhaps even lower latency; so it'll be easier to keep the audio and video in sync without fiddling with the settings in Kodi (if that's an issue for you, of course).

HDMI audio is preferred but it sounds like that isn't an option because your tuner doesn't have any HDMI inputs. If your tuner doesn't support HDMI inputs then try plugging it into your TV and passing the audio out of your TV to your receiver with S/PDIF. Preferably by an optical cable but a coax cable should suffice if optical isn't an option.

If your TV doesn't support that then I don't really know what to tell you. I would recommend an HDMI audio extractor but none of them seem to support Dolby Digital Plus.

If your TV doesn't support passthrough audio then your best bet is getting a Roku 4 (the only Roku with S/PDIF optical audio out).

Yes, you’ll need a CC to play videos on your TV. Google Home device is optional.

You can separately purchase a HDMI audio extractor to separate the digital HDMI audio signal from the CC HDMI output to the TV HDMI digital input. The extractor converts the digital audio portion to a 2 channel analog output (or 5:1 channel analog output) that you can use to plug into your stereo (L-R) receiver or amplifier audio inputs. This configuration allows you to watch videos cast for viewing on your TV while listening the show on your audio system. Here’s an audio extractor example that you can purchase that is listed on Amazon.

I routinely listen to digital radio, podcasts and music on my HDTV audio systems either via TV sound bar/woofer connected to my HDTV using just the CC.

I also listen to the same via my audio system without the HDTV being on through my audio CC that are connected to my audio system.

On occasions, I have video being cast (e.g., fireplace video, scenic photography, family photos, etc.) via CC while casting music via audio CC at the same time.

However the audio CCs are very useful to cast digital audio for listening on analog audio systems throughout the home.

Google Home is helpful in that to can start and control all of this using simple spoken commands and, following setup, without tablets and smartphones.

The main purpose for the CC Ultra is to stream 4K video. Yes, there are a few sources (e.g., NetFlix) that can provide 4K video streams. However you need to first focus on having enough bandwidth from your ISP to support the additional demand for 4K Video streaming; and pending that’s in place you need either hardware your CCs to your modem or have a local Wi-Fi router or router system in place to handle your normal device demands PLUS the heavy additional demands needed for 4K Video streaming. Handling the video resolution is the issue, not speed.

However if your planning to buy a 4K HDTV, have enough bandwidth down from your ISP, have enough WiFi (or hardware using optional adapter), have 4K video streaming source access (note that NetFlix requires the purchase of their more expensive premium plan to be able to use a limited list of 4K video) then you may wish to purchase and use a CC Ultra.

I'm not sure if this for iOS devices works, but it's worth a look.

This should let you use a Chromecast through composite cables.
