I've never even heard of the inputs that your audio monitor thingy has and can't recall ever seeing optical adapters with those outputs so they may not be available.
Basically any sort of sound bar or speaker setup will need to have it's own amp, it's own volume control, it's own remote control, and an optical input (or a way to adapt from the TV's optical output).
thank you very much Randy.
so much for that idea.
I have verizon fios.
I like the set up I have now. my verizon fios remote controls the tv volume and changing the tv channels. so I just use that 1 remote. nice and simple.
I am guessing that the verizon fios remote will be capable of turning the ST50tv on and off and control the channels and the tv's internal volume.
do you think the there is a chance that the verizon remote would be able to control a sound bar's volume?
I'm guessing the answer is no.
I am guessing that many people these days are having to use 2 remotes to control their set ups.
