Connecting Sonos Beam to Epson EH-TW7000 (FireTV use)

Hey everybody,

we are having troubles to connect our Sonos Beam (+ 2x Sonos One SL) to our projector Epson EH-TW7000. Our end goal is to have 5.1 Sound. Our main input is a FireTV Stick.

The projector doesn’t have any HDMI Arc output nor an optical. I already bought a HDMI Matrix Switch and tried to connect it with the optical adapter that came with the beam as I noticed the HDMI Arc doesn’t work. Unfortunately I had no luck with getting a connection even through the optical...

This is the HDMI Matrix Switch I was using:

Is there anything else I have to set for the sound to work? And if possible a different solution to get 5.1 Sound as I heard that optical is not compatible.

Thank you so much!

It definitely supports the Epson Projector models EH-TW8100, EH-TW7300, EH-TW6600, as can be seen here in the notes on the latest firmware update:

You need a different switch/extractor/splitter with ARC/eARC support for the Beam. I would perhaps try this Feintech product instead…

However just check with the Feintech support desk that it supports your model of projector before purchase (I think it will).
