Hi - I just got the new Amp and two Play:1 speakers and am trying to configure them so that I can listen to the TV with the Play:1 speakers acting as front L/R stereo speakers. I have set the Play:1's as stereo speakers but had to create a new room separate from the Amp, and when I play the TV audio, have to manually group the room the Amp is in and the room the Play:1 speakers are in and then play the TV audio through the that group. Is there a way that I can add the Play:1's to the same room as the Amp that way I do not have to group the two together each time I want to listen to the TV audio? The only option I see is to add the Play:1 speakers as surround speakers to be placed behind the TV viewing area, and I do not want to do that.
I have connected the Amp to my TV with an HDMI ARC cable, which works well. Is it possible to, while the HDMI ARC is connected to the TV/Amp, play TV audio through the TV speakers and stream music through the Play:1 speakers? I set the TV audio to play through the Amp, and when I manually change it back to play through the TV speakers, the audio plays through the TV speakers for a few seconds before converting back to playing through the Amp and its connected speakers. If I can do that, is it possible to change the audio source of the TV through the Sonos app instead of doing it manually through the TV each time?
Thank you for the help
