Hello everyone,

 

Im looking to get a confirmation on a setup id like to have.

 

I have at the moment:

  • Apple TV 4K (atmos / eARC HDMI)
  • Videoprojector 4K (eARC HDMI)

Thingking of getting

  • Beam gen2 (atmos / eARC)

 

The thing is i want to make sure that i will get the atmos sound with the 3 setup together.

 

Im not sure how to connect everything, i know that i will have to use HDMI as atmos doesnt work with airplay wihtout homepod.

 

So the connection that i thought of is as follow:

  • Plugging the Apple TV to the videoprojector via the regular HDMI port for the video
  • Plugging an other HDMI cable from the Apple TV eARC plug to the Sonos Beam (eARC)

 

Will this setup allow me to have the atmos sound ?

 

Thanks for the answers.

The Beam needs to be connected to the projector’s HDMI ARC/eARC port. The Apple TV only has one HDMI port and it needs to connect to one of the projector’s other HDMI ports.

Ahh ok, god how i got that wrong ? Yes Apple TV only has one HDMI …

 

Awesome ! thanks for the quick reply.

 

For what it’s worth, the Apple TV does not have ARC/eARC built in, it serves a standard HDMI signal to the projector (or TV). It’s the circuitry in the receiving device ( projector/TV) that turns that standard HDMI signal into a reflected ARC or eARC signal.
