My friend uses a Roku streamer to his LG TV optical output, which has unresolvable audio cutouts when he hooks the TV to a Wired-4-Sound DAC. In order to bypass the TV optical route altogether, does anyone make a streamer with the usual HDMI outputs, but also an optical output to go right to the DAC for audio only? Thanks.
Another option could be an HDMI splitter or audio extractor that has S/PDIF output; around $20.
Did he try a different optical cable ? NJ zed
Yes. It improved a little bit, but the sound is still hiccuping regularly.
Sounds like the dac is receiving a lot of jitter from the TV output. Make sure the TV output setting is set to PCM and not Dolby.
If it is, then I would try a different TV or another DAC to see which is the problem. Its hard to find a simple streamer with hdmi in and out.
There are some simple and cheap TV digital to analog converters on Amazon he could try one. They are like $30, with optical in and RCAs output.
