Im looking to get a PLAYBASE, but unfortunately my TV does not have an optical audio output port. Ive been reading the discussions of other people with the same issue, but would like to double check I fully understand before going ahead and purchasing it. I only use chromecast and occasionally HDMI directly to my laptop, so from what I can gather, if I purchase an HDMI splitter with an optical audio output port, I will be able to solve this issue.
As I am in New Zealand and cannot purchase from Amazon without having to wait months for shipping and be charged exorbitant shipping fees and import taxes, I figured this may be my best option:
Would I have to plug in the chromecast and HDMI cord that I plug into my laptop into the 'input' ports, plug in another spare HDMI cable to the 'output' port, and then connect the optical audio cable from the PLAYBASE to the splitter?
Thanks in advance for any help and advice, I really appreciate it
