    Hi,

    VIDEO
    I plan on using my iMac as the hub of a home theatre to play all my movies/DVDs. It will be connected to a
    optoma hd200x projector

    I'm hoping to do this with a minidisplay to HDMI cable.

    AUDIO
    Audio will go through to an external decoder/receiver which is connected to my 5.1 system. This will be done with an optical cable.


    1: How does this sound? Will it all work? potential problems?

    2: Can the iMac output DTS through the optical out?

    Any advice or comments welcome! :)

    Sounds fine to me. I'd recommend buying one of these all-in-one deals just to make sure everything works properly, although separate optical audio and DisplayPort-HDMI adapters should also do the trick. Good luck!

    Ah, comrade of HTS. Thank you - that looks like an instant buy for me!
