Hi fellow Sonos fans,
My father wants to get a Sonos surround with the Playbar, Sub and 2xPlay3. But I was wondering, if I connect a BD, Apple TV, PS3 to his TV ans connect the Playbar to the TV with an optical audio cable, will I get the sound from all the devices through Sonos?

That depends on the TV's audio capabilities and so much on the Sonos Playbar. If your father's TV is fairly new, then the chances are good that it will direc tthe sound out the audio port from all of the various inputs. However, some TV's only output stereo (PCM 2 channel) over the optical port.

Here's a webpage that shows the audio capabilities of many TV's.

Thanks for your reply, I'll check if it's compatible.
