I'm hoping an enterprising soul has attempted what I am about to attempt, or can tell me if this will work. If so, great. If not, I may have wasted some money. Anyways, here goes nothin'.
I recently mounted this projector
to my ceiling, to totally make an awesome recreation room. I fed a single HDMI cable through my ceiling to a wall jack, and currently, is fed into my PS4. The projector has a speaker, which is very sub-optimal of course, so I went and purchased this sound bar
. The only problem I can see (and maybe, yes, additional research could have been done by Y.T), is that it has ONE HDMI port on it. The PS4 only has one HDMI port. It's either the projector, OR, the sound bar. Clearly, again, not optimal.
So, to be creative, I bought an HDMI switch - one input to 4 outputs! Nice right? The issue is still the same though - I need to hook up the sound bar. I'm debating a simple splitter cable, which would take my projector and split it in to two HDMI connections. One I would feed into my soundbar. The other into my HDMI switch, and...hopefully that fixes this? I'm already at max budget - I'd like to avoid buying an A/V receiver if necessary - it's a small space, and giant speakers and the like would just be a bit too much (plus, you know, money I can't spend).
Here! Enjoy this very haphazard diagram to help explain!https://cdn.pbrd.co/images/s3nQHXzwy.jpg
Much appreciated for any advice on how I can A/V right.
I think Pringles original intention was to make tennis balls... but on the day the rubber was supposed to show up a truckload of potatoes came. Pringles is a laid-back company, so they just said, "Fuck it, cut em up!".
