I have two sonos amps that drive outdoor speakers.  I want to bring my tv outside and watch a movie.  If I buy the beam gen2 and hook the tv arc hdmi to the beam, can I stream the tv audio through the beam to both sonos amps?  I don’t care about dolby or surround sound, I just want the tv audio on my outdoor speakers.

You could ‘group’ the Amps with the Beam, but they would be delayed by at least 75ms.

Are there other alternatives to making this work since its established there will be an audio delay causing syncing issues?  Come on better.

Do better?

Looks like nobody else is able to “do better” and are even infringing on Sonos patents to try to do as well.

You might want to move to a completely wired non-networked setup so there is no delay built into the communications stack.
