Hi all !
I recently bought Sonos one (gen 2) , I like to know how can I stream only the audio to Sonos one when I watching a film in my projector . The way how I stream is using amazon fire dongle into the projector . Can I split the signal video and audio ?
My last setup was : projector connected hdmi with amazon fire dongle then from the projector mini jack audio out into Bluetooth transmitter avantree oasis . This setup let me both ways , streaming my films or video music clips audio to my normal auto amplified speakers or to 2 x Bluetooth headphones then obviously watch the film without delay and cables around .
any tips please? Will help if at least I can setup Sonos one gen 2 like normal Bluetooth speakers .
thanks in advance !!

Hi Jim Moreno
The only way to send video audio to a Sonos One, Sonos One SL, or Play 5 is to have a Sonos Beam, Playbar, Playbase or Sonos Amp with direct integration to your TV or Projector. Then you can group in your case the Sonos One to the aforementioned. However, you will experience a slight audio lag to the Sonos One.
The other option would be to integrate a Sonos Port via an AUX RCA or 3.5mm audio output from a TV (which typically has optical for the Beam, Playbar or Playbase). You would group the Port to the Sonos One. However, stealing a second audio stream from a TV maynot be ideal or be allowed by the TV internal audio card.
Last, a Sonos One cannot be configured to operate via BT. The Sonos Move is BT capable but I’d need time to consider the feasibility of using the Move in the manner you desire.
If you are interested in connecting a Beam, Playbar or Playbase please let us know so that we can walk you through the connection process involving either a TV or Projector.
