Hi,

 

I am planning on using a steaming device like roku (http://www.amazon.co...&keywords=roku')

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.co...r/dp/B0038JE07O) wich has the digital outputs, but many review are not great)

 

thanks

No, but it plays iTunes content flawlessly.
