I'm racking my brain here. I don't have a HDMI receiver. I've been through all my TV settings and the only way it seems I can get HDMI to play is to leave the TV on. This is annoying and wasteful when I only want to listen to audio.
At this point, what are my options, while I could go out and buy a Chromecast audio or even an Airport express, I didn't really want to have to do that, but it seems there is no apparent way.
I guess I could also buy a DAC and send the signal directly to my valve amp. Again, this becomes an effort of quality and cost. There seems to be no simple option to do this.
