I am trying to control the volume through my cable remote and not the app.
I have two Elipson Planet L speakers wired into my Connect Amp and the Connect Amp is connected to the TV through an optical converter.
The setup is currently as follows:
1) Cable box to TV with HDMI cable
2) TV to audio converter (coaxial/optical to R/L audio converter) with optical cable (to get the best sound and avoid the lip sync delays with a 3.5mm audio jack)
3) coaxial/optical to R/L audio converter to connect amp with 3.5mm audio to R/L audio cable into the connect amp
I tried connecting an optical cable from the TV to the cable box and then using R/L audio cables directly to the connect amp and this did not work.
Your help is more than welcome!
