I appreciate there are loads of posts on this topic, but as I’m new to all of this I haven’t quite found one that seems to fix my problem.
I have the Sonos Beam and two One’s setup for home theatre, the Beam is plugged into my TV through HDMI ARC, whilst I also have a PS4 plugged into one of my TV’s other HDMI’s. My TV is a Panasonic and I understand from research online and my usage that it does not passthrough 5.1 audio from the PS4, but it will output 5.1 when using the inbuilt Netflix app.
I’m looking for a workaround to try and get 5.1 when using the PS4.
Would it be possible to have: Beam > switch by HDMI > switch > PS4 by optical > switch to TV by HDMI? From my research I understand the best fix to my problem would be to have optical directly from the Beam to the PS4, but I don’t know enough to understand whether this would be possible through a switch type device.
I have looked on Amazon but there are so many I’m a bit overwhelmed, so any help/ direction to something that could work would be really appreciated.
