Well, on that one there's the Line in plug, so if you were able to get a 3.5mm (headphone) plug between your TV and the speaker, it would work. I'd recommend turning on AutoPlay once you've plugged into the headphone jack on the speaker, as the option won't show up until it's connected.

You'll still have that delay we were talking about in your other thread.

Again, I'd encourage you to do some reading in the "Home Theater" section of these boards. Lots of data in many threads to consume.

It will have a delay hoooing the 3.5mm. Whether the delay bothers you or not is personal opinion. I'm under opinion I notice no real lip sync issue. You will however have to turn the TV volume down as TV speakers will be out of sync with the Play:5 and cause an echo (stadium) type effect.
