Would I be able to hook this up to my TV and speakers and only adjust volume on the TV from the TV remote? Looking to have a simple setup for TV for my wife and kid, whereas I don't care if I have to manipulate various things. I want this for music, attached to a decent set of bookshelf speakers, but want the setup to be multifunction for TV. My wife says just buy a soundbar... ughhh!
I just don't want to buy this if its going to be finicky for my wife in any way. Otherwise, it checks all the boxes.
My Samsung TV does not allow me to control volume of anything connected over S/PDIF. If I've wanted to control volume with TV Remote only way is to connect analog signal output to mini jack input in SMSL. I would not recommend that because of loss in audio quality. To have one remote and good audio you can use Logitech Harmony remote.
Check YouTube for ZReviews discussion of this very subject. I believe he subtitled it "Sound Bar killer"
