    Using Firestick on a projection TV
    « on: May 29, 2021, 03:37:17 PM »
    I purchased a DVI to HDMI converter and do get access to the Firesticks channels. The problem is, I can't get sound. I thought I might be able to get it through a video recorder I have but no luck. I swapped some red/white/yellow RCA jacks but still no luck. Any ideas from anyone?

    DVI does not support sound so if the projector doesn't have HDMI and the Firestick doesn't support separate audio, only Audio thru HDMI the 2 units won't work.
    If the projector has composite video then this unit may work.

      I like the idea, but don't know exactly where to place them. There are multiple RCA jack ports on my TV.
