    Hi,

    I currently use an Apple TV in two different ways, firstly as you would expect to view multimedia/rent movies etc, and secondly as a way to project photos onto my LCD from my NAS. Ideally, in the 'photoframe mode' I would like to use the audio input from my Sonos system.

    What I would like to do is to be able to effectively have two sources using the HDMI from the Apple TV each with different audio inputs. 3

    i.e. source 1 - Video - HDMI from Apple TV, audio - optical 1 (Sonos)
    source 2 - Video - HDMI from Apple TV, audio - HDMI from Apple TV

    I can see in the settings for the amp that different sources can share the same digital audio input but I can't see a way of allocating the same HDMI input to two sources.

    Anyone else doing this? have I missed something? any ideas/workarounds?

    Cheers

    You could split the HDMI (with a cheapish splitter) and connect them to different inputs. Each input could then have its own audio feed.
