Problem: HDMI from TV
#1
Hi Moode people.

I'm wondering if it's possible to take the audio from the TV via the digital optical output to the HDMI input on the Pi?

There is no "HDMI input on the Pi".

OP would need something like the Hifibery DAC+ ADC but with a Toslink input instead of Analog in. I don't know if such a board exists ??

Sorry. Just to clarify. I have HiFiBerry DAC+Pro with HDMI input.

Not heard of such a thing....and Google seems to be quiet on the matter....

Do you have a link to the "HiFiBerry DAC+Pro with HDMI input"   ???

Just in the odd chance that the OP changes his mind and his DAC is an actual HiFiberry DAC+ ADC this two-a-penny converter could do the job: Digital Toslink/Optical SPDIF to L/R RCA Audio Converter

Isn't this an HDMI socket? 
I'm pretty sure this is what my Pi looks like. 
There's a HiFiBerry DAC+Pro sitting on top of it.
My original question was regarding the possibility of using Moode to take the audio from the telly via the digital audio output socket, connected to an HDMI cable and play the said TV audio through my speakers. The ones connected to my HifiBerry +Pro, which is connected to a Raspberry Pi. via said HDMI socket. 
Excuse my English.

That is an HDMI display port, for outputting video and audio to a TV or AV Receiver. It's not an audio input connector.

This seems to be another XY problem.
Your Pi is a source, your TV has inputs but can also be an audio source.
Your problem seems to be that you want to hook your different sources to some loudspeakers.

A solution would be connect your sources to something like AV receiver which'll power passive loudspeakers or connect your Pi to one of the TVs inputs and output the TV's audio to soundbar/active speakers or passive speakers via an integrated amplifier.

@vinnn is correct, The HDMI and 3,5mm RCA ports on Raspberry Pi are output-only.

I'd forgotten that moOde does in fact support a S/PDIF input solution, the Audiophonics RaspDAC Mini. It provides a coax S/PPDIF input port. In moOde you simply select it using the Source Select (SOURCE-SEL) screen. moOde also provides a dedicated volume control for this input so it can function as a preamp.

The only solution that I know of that supports Toslink S/PDIF input is the Hifiberry DAC+ DSP but there is little documentation on how to configure it and it's not currently integrated into moOde.
