My WDTV live hub (model C3H) doesn’t have as many options for connection. However it does have an optical one so I am presuming that this is the one I use to plug in to another optical port on the home theatre? I haven’t bought the home theatre yet as I was unsure how to connect two things that both seemed to require an hdmi connection? At present I am connecting the WD live hub directly to the projector using an HDMI cable but the sound that comes with the projector is rubbish. Consequently I am having to use my lap top plugged in to the projector using an HDMI because the speaker is much better. I bought the WD live in order to do away with the laptop sitting on the arm of my sofa! The WD hub is sitting unused next to it!
Please confirm that I will get surround sound from a home theatre if I connect to it from the hub using an optical cable? the other person who began this conversation didn’t write to say that he/she had managed to get it working with an optical cable?
My other question is: if I want to connect the laptop to the home theatre without the WD hub in the equation, how will I connect that to a home theatre? ( the projector would be connected to that with the HDMI cable) as my lap top doesn’t have an optical port just one HDMI and one VGA ? I would really appreciate your help. It has been sitting here unused since last August now!
