Thanks for the reply I am convinced. I will have the omni sitting next to my pc and I watch movies and so from the couch as my pc is hooked up to my hdtv. i am not that keen on getting up and walking to the computer to adjust the volume so i was hoping that i could use the mixamp without it changing the SBX signal, purely to adjust the volume.
i might have to run some longer cables and put the omni next to me instead.
Would the omni also work with ps4 if i connected it via optical(obviously without the chat)?
Get something like this:
I assume you have some kind of universal remote already; throw away the one you just bought and just use the USB IR receiver to control the volume on your movies. It's what I do on my XBMC box and it works great.
I don't believe the Omni will work on your PS4 at all, but I don't know for sure one way or the other. Maybe @Evshrug can help there.
