I have a tv mounted outside w/ two outdoor sonos/sonace speakers mounted on either side. I ran two speaker wires & two Cat6 wires in buried pipe from my basement 100 feet to my garage & then out to the tv/speakers. My modem & Amp are located in my basement.
- tv connected via one of the Cat6 cables to my modem
- speakers connected to new Sonos Amp in my basement
- one Cat6 cable currently not being used
I purposely did not run an HDMI cord from the basement to the tv as I was told it was too long of a run. Is there anyway to connect the amp (& ultimately speakers) to the tv using the one existing Cat6 cable?
My garage is not insulated so I do not want to keep my amp in there - winter in Minnesota would kill it - not worried about the tv.
The amp is connected to my system currently & the speakers work great for music, etc., just not sure how to get tv audio through outdoor speakers at such a distance. I’ve read suggestions about adding an beam to the TV or another speaker, but again, too cold for any Indoor Sonos products to work outside year around.
