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?

  • What are your speakers connected to?

  • @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...

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.
