I run my cable box and Apple TV through a Sony 5.1 receiver to a Samsung TV. The output from the receiver is “tv out/arc” but is NOT going to the ARC HDMI, the Sonos Arc beam is going to that HDMI port.
Unless I connect the component (cable box, Apple TV) directly to the TV, skipping the receiver, I can’t get the sound to the Sonos, it appears the sound will only go to the wired speakers on the receiver.
Any suggestions to get the receiver “in the loop” so to speak? I’d rather not buy an HDMI switch for the components, or try to run the cables back through the wall to the tv individually.
