I've reviewed a lot of other threads but can't find a similar problem. My setup:
Old Sony TV (no e-arc)
PS5 (primary media device)
Sonos Arc + 2x Play 1 as surrounds
I recently introduced an HDMI switch with a Toslink extractor to resolve audio syncing. Toslink out to toslink/HDMI adapter to Sonos Arc and HDMI out to TV to bypass TV audio processing entirely.
First oddity: it all works well and I can get Dolby Digital 5.1 and full surround audio on the PS5 interface and any gaming, but when streaming Disney+ or Netflix, there's no sound coming from the rear speakers at all, despite the app showing 5.1 while this content is playing.
Second oddity: a second input device is a GoogleTV and in this configuration it's outputting everything in full Dolby Atmos, which is great! Definitely not complaining, but out of curiosity, how is this happening over toslink?
Any help is appreciated!
