So i have a set up like this:
1) Sonos Arc
2) Apple TV 4K (2nd gen)
3) Benq HT3550 Projector
is it possible to have eARC work?
As of right now the main problem is that sonos arc connects to apple tv via wifi. This makes it “temporary” source and sometimes i start a movie and then go back to apple tv setting to change the source because once in a while it will switch back to the projector speakers
Apple TV only has 1 hdmi port. Should i get one of those hdmi audio extractors and connect Sonos arc into it? Will it work? Will eARC work? Could you please link me to one that will work on Amazon? Do I need anything else for this to work?
Note: I have this cable to connect Sonos Arc
I found this device and almost bought it, but then in the product images it says it won’t work with Sonos Arc
Sonos Arc does come with HDMI to ESPDIF adapter and i read that a direct HDMI connection to eARC is preferred. Also just to mention, I would like the unit to be smaller because my projector is mounted to the ceiling. I really don't care to connect anything else to the projector or having remotes and stuff.
I just ordered this with my limited research, but if you say that this won’t work for me or there is a better device, I’ll be happy to purchase that and return this one:
I will greatly appreciate your input!!!
