Will this work?? Media Room Set-up with projector

Looking to set up media room in basement.


Optoma HD142x projector

Roku Ultra

Sonos Playbar

Sonos Sub

Sonos Amp + 2 ceiling speakers



Will I be able to do this without a dedicated receiver?  Seems like I can either take HDMI from Roku to either playbar or to the amp but not to both?  Is there a way to send sound output to both (amp and playbar) from the Roku??


Thanks in advance.

How are you getting the signal to the PLAYBAR? The Amp driving the rear speakers would bond wirelessly to the PLAYBAR for surround data.

There are some Roku devices that can’t send Dolby Digital, only Dolby Digital Plus, which Sonos can’t interpret.

So two issues: Dolby Digital signal from Roku, and how the signal gets to the PLAYBAR which is at front of room, whereas the projector, and presumably the Roku, is at the back of the room.
