Chromecast and samsung HTIB - Recommendations?

Howdy,

I'm newish to this, and was wondering if I could get a Samsung HT-BD1255 to talk to my chromecast.

I think I get an optical output from the chromcast into the optical input on the amp and hdmi out from the chromcast to the receivers input.

Does anyone know if this would work?

We have a small budget $250 cad for a home theater system (unemployed because of covid-19) and we can get this online for that much but if there is something better would be very happy to hear it! Mostly movies, music and shows.

Many thanks,
Z

That should work as you described, getting the optical output of the chromecast into one of the two inputs on the HTIB. You can check the HTIB manual to be sure.
