Except they don't want to talk to each other! I have played around with every setting on both devices to have the audio from the TV routed through a "Receiver" (Beam) option on TV, but no sound gets outputted. I have even turned off CEC control in the Apple TV settings without success.
I have read multiple forums here and otherwise and tried with every possible setting, unless I am missing something obvious somewhere. ANY TIPS??
The other route I took from Optical Out from TV using the Optical-HDMI adapter. I got sound, yayyy! Except, then I got to know that the TV is programmed to not output Dolby/DTS surround sound when the input is 3rd-party HDMI input which is Apple TV in this case. Meaning, I am now listening in Stereo!! UGGHHH!
Should this that difficult? Any help is very much appreciated! If I can explain my set up any better, please holler.
Please be that rockstar that I am not!

The issue seems to be with CEC as when I go into the Sonos app and tap TV under browse, it realizes there is a connection issue. When I go through the steps to “fix it” I get the screen that the cec function is not connected- I had this problem earlier this evening and messed around with my devices enough from restarting, changing hdmi cords and ports, and disabling and re-enabling the cec function on my TV that the “fix it” connection steps successfully got to the end and the sound output was working once more.
