I’ve upgraded my AMP system with a beam and 2 ONE SL to upgrade to surround sound for my TV setup.
However after playing around with the App for hours, best I can do is adding the SL’s to either the Beam or the AMP as surround.
Although I wanted to add them all to the same room, instead of grouping them together I now have multiple rooms with the same name. Maybe I simply can’t find the right option within the App but I feel stuck.
So my current setup with in the App is: Beam + 2 SL’s in surround mode, AMP in a system with the same room name. I want to have sound from all of them when turning on my TV, what do I do? :D

You can have the following combinations
1 The Beam as your front channels with the One SLs for the rears, and your Amp and passive speakers in a different Sonos ‘room’, i.e. not part of the surround setup
2 The Beam for the front channels, the Amp and passive speakers as surrounds, and the One SLs not as part of your surround setup
3 The Amp + passive speakers at the front, One SLs as surrounds and the Beam redundant.
You cannot use all your speakers in a surround setup.
Also, you need the speaker(s) that don’t fit into your surround system to have a different room name from the surround setup - having the same name only creates confusion.
You can group other speakers with your surround setup, but they won’t sync perfectly for TV sound (they will do so for music).
