I have owned a Sonos Home Theatre setup (Playbar, two PlayOne rears, and a Sub) for years, and have enjoyed it immensely in conjunction with my TV. I have just purchased a projector, and am now trying to get the Sonos system to play nice with it, but am having difficulty.
I purchased a 3x1 HDMI Switcher with a digital optical out. I connected my Apple TV and Blu-ray to the switcher, and output the video to the projector via HDMI cable and the audio to the Sonos Playbar via digital optical cable.
The picture looks spectacular from both sources, and when I change sources with the switcher, the appropriate audio goes to the Playbar, BUT IT GOES NO FURTHER - not to the PlayOnes, not to the Sub. What am I doing wrong? I also think the audio coming from the Playbar sounds a bit thin, but I’ll reserve judgment until the entire system is back up and running.
Any guidance would be much appreciated! Thanks.
