Need some connection help
I am having trouble figuring out connection options for a projector
Right now I have a Vizio 5.1 sound bar that mainly has an optical in and a 3.5mm input; no HDMI in or HDMI out
I have an Nivida Shield that goes from the Shield, to the TV, and then optical from the TV to the sound bar.
I would like to get a projector for the room too; which would be on the opposite side of the room.
What options would there to hook up the projector?
I thought of a Firestick 4K at the projector and bluetooth the sound to the sound bar by buying a bluetooth receiver to the 3.5mm input of the sound bar; but I hear that can cause sync issues; and would the 3.5mm still bring the dolby/DTS or just stereo?
Thought of getting a wireless HDMI sender/receiver ($$) for the projector ; and then I would assume I would also need an HDMI splitter-type device (and audio extractor for the optical to the sound bar) from the shield to the TV/projector. On the same note, I can wire an HDMI all around the room, but would have to make it look nice and neat for wife approval (a lot of wire tracks I guess).
Any other ideas I am missing?
