I have a projector that I use as my display for my xbox one. Unfortunately it only only has an audio in port.

Is there anyway I can send the audio from my xbox to my chromecast audio to then play through my speakers?

Thanks in advance.

  • I can't think of a way off hand. The Xbox One does have an optical audio port - maybe you can use that somehow? – Adeese Jan 1 '18 at 21:50

  • What are your speakers connected to? – user86571 Jan 1 '18 at 22:22
  • @Adeese The speakers have an aux male. I was wondering if I could use a optical audio output to jack and then direct the audio to the speakers, then send the display through the hdmi... – cwiggo Jan 2 '18 at 14:35
  • @cwiggo Maybe something like this would work? monoprice.com/product?p_id=10251 – Adeese Jan 2 '18 at 18:21

You can set the audio out from your Xbox one to SPDIF, then using an adapter convert that to a phono audio signal. It's the setup I have, it works fine.

So HDMI carries video to projector, SPDIF carries audio separately straight to the speakers.
