Have my Sonos 5 connected via 3.5mm audio jack to the TV and am getting a 2 second playback delay with the sound. Worked fine for a month or so but just seems to have given up. Whats a fix and/or better way to wire in the play 5 through the TV?

I have exactly the same issue with play5:gen1 line-in. Delay is ridiculously long around 1-2 seconds. Tested everything with my setup (samsung tv with one connect box, appletv4 to pcm/stereo etc.), however easy testcase: unplugged the minijack on the play5 and sonos kept 1-2 seconds playing…. that proved the rootcause being the play5 sonos speaker. It used to work fine (couple of months ago), but cannot get it fixed. Audio setting in the S1 app to uncrompessed does not help :-( Any other ideas? please Help?
What are the other line-in settings set to? Especially Audio Delay? You should be able to get the delay down to 75ms for a single speaker, but will be more if you choose to Group it with others (don’t do that).
There is reasons why Sonos make specific hardware for TV usage, and one reason is digital-input, and another is 5GHz direct connection to surrounds.
