Media source: Apple TV (3rd Gen)
Video Player: Optomo UHD52ALV Projector connected through HDMI from Apple TV
Audio: Sonos Playbar (set up as surround sound with sub + 2 Sonos One) and Connected through Optical cable from Apple TV
When I play Netflix on Apple TV and choose audio English [Original] (5.1) or Amazon Prime to choose a movie with “Dolby Digital Plus” The Sonos app shows the Audio IN as “Stereo PCM 2.0” in both cases.
Checked Sonos App for System Update and shows “Your Sonos system is up to date”.
Bought this audio splitter https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B07JDGBBXF/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and cant get the 5.1.
Is this even possible?

I have an Apple TV (Gen 3) connected through HDMI. I just tested Jack Ryan on Prime Video. I believe Prime is limited to Stereo 2.0 on the Apple TV (Gen 3). I can get Dolby Digital 5.1 through Netflix though. I imagine it should work through optical too.
