Can it connect to apple tv with a wire via the optical audio?

Trying to stream via apple tv to a projector, the projectors speaker is weak and it does not have an audio out connection. Can I use the the optical audio jack to a speaker such as the UE boom and use the HDMI to the projector and have everything in sync?

  • Doubtful. The audio out from the ATV is, as you noticed, optical — while the audio in to this speaker is analog. Unless you were to put some kind of A/D converter between the two it probably wouldn't work.
