I currently have a whole house audio system with 6 Sonos Amps. In two of those rooms, I have a separate TV/Audio/Speaker setup with their own speakers tied to Sony STRAZ1000ES receivers. All the Sonos amp as well as the STRAZ1000ES receivers are all nicely stacked in one location. I know the STRAZ1000ES has the “Works with Sonos” feature but for the life of me I do not understand it. Can someone provide direction and/or feasibility to do two things that I would love to accomplish with these lovely items.
- I would love to watch the TV and have the audio play through the whole house audio (Sonos Amps). I see the TV Line in option on the Sonos app but from what I understand it is only available if I’m using a sound bar option?
- Is there a way to play the audio that is playing through the whole house audio through the STRAZ1000ES at the same time? I assume this is what the “Works with Sonos” is all about but cannot figure it out. Plus, since the receiver acts as my main audio player for the tv, every time I try to activate the feature on the receiver, when I turn the whole house audio on, next time the tv is turned on, the receiver is left on the input the feature it switches it too and thus the TV sound is off. Since it is in a remote location, this is very frustrating.
Any suggestions on either?
