I brainstorm a lot. It happens when you wake up at 5am and you spend all day tending to kids.
Today’s issue is how to turn my desk into a true gaming station. A couple months ago I added a 24-inch monitor to my setup. It’s handy but I’d like to get some more use out of it.
My ps4 is currently connected to a 42-inch TV. With the way the room is set up I have to spend a lot of time standing about 5 feet in front of it while playing.
This morning I had the idea of moving the ps4 to my desk and viewing it on the 24" screen. Sitting less than 2 feet away it shouldn’t be a big deal. I very likely won’t be using the 2nd monitor while playing on ps4. I use the DVI connection to my PC so HDMI is open. Only problem is the monitor doesn’t have speakers.
So I thought of the optical connection on the ps4. And my sound card has TOSLINK (optical in/out). I think this is a valid method and will solve my problem. It will also provide me with 5.1 sound when playing on ps4.
Anyone have thoughts on this?
