Alright, I have a challenge for all you av/tech heads:
I was told by Apple that using the HDMI output (via dongle) overides all the other audio output options. Typically this isn't a big deal because I have a nice receiver set up in my house. However, I want to stream from my iPad 2 to my projector outdoors and I don't want to lug around a whole receiver set up. The solution needs to be portable.
So I'm looking for a way to send video to my projector and audio to another device with these requirements:
My thought was to run the HDMI dongle to an HDMI to component adapter and then run the video to the projector and the audio to a boombox or w/e. However, the reliability of HDMI to component converters makes this messy. I'm sure you guys can think of a more elegant solution!
- Audio device must be portable
- Audio device must be loud enough to be heard outdoors
- HDMI dongle (according to Apple) overrides all other audio output from the iPad itself.
