I'm assuming that your projector doesn't have an optical out? If not, you can find a audio extractor, there are several posts describing such, in which it takes the signal coming in from the HDMI and strips out and supplies an optical signal. Then you could run another HDMI cable from that device to your projector for the video, and take the optical out from the device and supply it to your Playbar.

Here is a random extractor that I just looked up on Amazon, there's tons, and if you poke around here on this forum, you'll see a lot of people talking about them. I don't use one myself, so it's hard for me to pass judgement on any one in particular.

I hope this helps
