Hi Guys, I want to connect an Xfinity DVR to a Samsung Surround Sound system (the model is HT-J5500W). The Surround sound box only has a single HDMI out port, and no HDMI in ports.
Is it correct that the only way for me to get surround sound from my Xfinity service is through the Digital Optical cable connection?
I saw other posts on the forum about getting Audio through HDMI, but I think all of them mentioned that the surround sound receiver should have an HDMI input to connect from the Xfininity DVR box. I just want to make sure that the Digital Optical input is the best / only option I have. Or is there a better way?
