I am strongly considering buying a Pi for use as my media centre with XBMC, as I just finally cut the cord with my cable provider.
My question is a "should this set up work" kind of thing.
I have an LG 42pb4dt TV (Plasma), and a Pioneer receiver that does not have HDMI. My question is whether or not people think the Pi will work with HDMI to the TV, and TOSLINK from the "DIGITAL AUDIO OUT" port on the TV to the Pioneer receiver.
I know it will likely be try it and find out, but just wondering if anyone has had success trying it this way.
My other option ($$) is to buy this, which I've seen posted on numerous forums:
