Connecting SKYQ to Lifestyle AV48 via VS2 and TV optically to AV48... HELP
Can anyone help me?
My original set up was a Sky Q box optically connected to a Bose AV48 and the HDMI going from SkyQ to the SAT video input on the VS2 connection of the Bose system, this was connected to the TV via another HDMI from the VS2 video output to the TV HDMI.
This seemed to do ok with surround etc.
I've just purchased a new Sony TV with Netflix and Prime Video etc and I'm trying to connect this to the Bose to get surround as well through the TV based apps.
So, I've connected the optical output from the TV to the Bose Lifestyle48 as I'd heard that HDMI carries audio as well.
By doing this I was hoping it would work but it seems I can only get stereo on both options?
Is it possible to have an optical splitter so I can connect both the SkyQ box and the TV optical out to the single port on the Lifestyle?
There's no direct HDMI input on the back of the lifestyle system only on the VS2 box.
Hoping there's someone out there trying to do similar or has succeeded in solving the problem.
