    Hi,

    I am planning on using a steaming device like roku (http://www.amazon.com/Roku-4200R-3-Streaming-Player/dp/B00BGGDVOO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1372366384&sr=8-1&keywords=roku%27)
    I am concerned about its only one hdmi connection.

    This would be fine with a TV, but I want to connect a projector and a soundbar using the digital input (S/PDIF connection.)
    How do you this ifyour only connection is from 1 hdmi.

    I have seen hdmi splitter. Would that be the solution?

    (What other streaming device would you recommand other than roku (for steaming mainly from my local network)
    I ve seen the boxee box (http://www.amazon.com/Boxee-D-Link-Streaming-Media-Player/dp/B0038JE07O) wich has the digital outputs, but many review are not great)

    thanks

    No, but it plays iTunes content flawlessly.
