Only one HDMI returns sound via Playbar
Hi, I installed my Playbar today and as it turns out only HDMI 2 returns sound via the playbar. All other devices (not on HDMI 2 don't. If I switch a device to HDMI 2 that device works. Is someone also experiencing the same problem or maybe has a suggestion or fix? Thanks!

In other words this sounds like a problem with your TV - You need to check the audio settings and ensure that it is outputting the audio via the optical output for all HDMI inputs.
The issue I now have is that only devices connected to HDMI2 play sound (doesn't matter if it is my PVR, Apple TV, DVD player etc.). If I connect any of those devices to a different HDMI it fails sound.
Do you perhaps know how to setup the sonos Playbar again after having it setup initially?
You must test/trial your Audio settings for your TV - My Samsung seems to work with the settings of Audio as "Receiver" (Rather than TV speakers or external speakers) (But I use a 4 way HDMI audio/video switch and the ARC - Audio Return part of it is really screwed up!)
Hope that helps
