Hi Ryang1982,

Welcome to the Sonos Community,

Your TV has an Optical out so it should work with the PlayBar

The Play1 will work as a surround but you need two of them.
Excellent , ye I've ordered two play1s will the sound bar and play1 play everything that plays through the TV ie playstaion and android box

I like to set my surrounds on "full" as I get more sound out of them that way. Personal choice. Also a lot depends on what the Playbar is being given.

Go to "about my sonos system" and see what the input is to the PlayBar. It can only put out what it is given.

Not sure how you have things connected but, yes the PlayBar will put out what ever sound the TV is playing from.

Tip:
Have one of your Sonos products hardwired to your router and at least a meter from the router, that way you can use SonosNet.
Ok thats good then , Ye my router is at back of the TV, so should I run the playbar to it ?! , Everything I run is to a seperate hdmi connect mini and that got the optical out port on it .
