    Hi All,

    I have just bought (and impatiently waiting to take delivery of) a Dennon DX1000 Micro HiFi system. This system does not have an optical audio input, which is a bit of problem as my Apple TV only has optical out.

    The most likely solution is buying a convertor for optical to RCA, they retail for around $70. But its yet more money to spend.

    The Dennon has an Ethernet socket and can be connected to networks. Was wondering if I could connect the ATV and HiFi directly via the ethernet cable?

    Just wondering if anyone has tried/succeeded with anything similar?

    Thanks. I thought so. But figured I'd ask the question before trying and driving myself insane in the process of trying!
