Play sound from Roku through an old stereo receiver
I'm cutting the cable cord. Sound from my Roku is playing through my TV speaker now. I want to play it through my stereo. which is 25 years old and pre-dates HDMI, Bluetooth, and everything else! Any suggestions? Thanks!
Re: Play sound from Roku through an old stereo receiver
A more modern Audio/Video Receiver (AVR) could integrate the Roku, Blu-Ray, TV and the rest of your stereo. My AVR is about 14 years old but it has ~7 HDMI ports, plus many older-style AV ports and some audio-only ports. When I switched from an even older receiver (1985ish), I removed a massive amount of cabling because HDMI is so simple.
Of course, you could also get an HDMI audio extractor for the old receiver. A little more kludgy with an extra gizmo, but it should work.
