The digital output would be a fixed output, meaning that the amplification would have to be done by a secondary receiver. It doesn't appear that there's a way to control the volume using the remote by adding external speakers.
I have a P2770HD which is considered a monitor but I am using it as a tv (has a digital tuner)
It is connected by hdmi to cable box.
I want to add external speakers - if I do that through the cable box with an amplifier, I cannot control the volume by my remote.
Is there another way other than buying an amplifier with a remote?
There is a digital optical output on the tv but I am not sure how that works - any suggestions ??
