Hi - I have recently bought a Sony Strdn1030 amp and HT-CT260 Soundbar and trying to work out the best way to setup. I have a separate room with a full surround Yamaha setup but this is for the main family room so I have been forced to compromise with a soundbar! Main driver for purchasing the amp was for HDMI switching (my TV, a Sony Bravia about 7 years old, only has one HDMI in and no optical out) and for Airplay, network music. There does not appear to be an optical out option on the amp so does anyone have any suggestions for the best way of setting this up? At the moment I have the amp feeding the TV via HDMI and the TV outputting to the analog input on the Soundbar which is not ideal.
Thanks in advance for any help!
