Would like to hear streaming music through my outdoor patio speakers. Apparently the Streambar Pro optical port is input only. I purchased a J-Tech Digital JTD-322V2 Audio Extractor. Can't get it to work either.
The Audio Extractor will output optical audio which can be used with a receiver's audio input. Problem is the Extractor needs audio format other than Dolby Digital +. I can't find a menu on the Streambar Pro which allows selecting the audio format. Is there a menu for selecting audio format?
HDMI 4k video and audio works perfectly going from the Streambar Pro to my Sony 4k tv. Just can't seem to find out why I can't get audio to the receiver.
Will have to try again. Have not used the outdoor speakers recently.
I will say that I can listen to streaming audio witht the Sony 4k tv Off. That did not work before. As soon as I turned Off the tv, the streaming audio would stop. Not sure if Roku fixed that problem since there were a lot of complaints about it.
Will try to remember to post here next time I try the outdoor speakers.
I will mention that it is frustrating listening to streaming music via Roku and have Youtube interrupt the music with constant ads.
