Can I make soundbar commute automatically between TV and MI box ?

I just bought a soundbar Sonos Arc 5.0 Dolby Atmos and it seems to have some conectivity issue when I commute between the TV and a MI Box I am using. It only works on one of them and when I commute between the devices Sonos does not output the sound anymore, the sound is output by the device itself (only after the commute).

My current setup is:

Samsung TV UE48J5600

MI BOX 4 -> connected to HDMI  (STB)

Sonos Arc 5 -> connected to HDMI  (ARC)

Xbox -> connected to HDMI (MHL/DVI)

Is there anyway to solve my problem ? And make Sonos output for all devices ?


Thank you !

You need to use an HDMI Switch, something like:

This is my setup:

 The reason for the Arcana HDFury is because my TV doesn’t have an eARC port and so this device splits the audio to the Arc and Video to the TV.  This will then enable me to get Dolby Atmos if available from my streaming source.

Thank you very much for the fast reply. I will buy a HDMI switch an try this way.
