Is it possible to connect my TV wirelessly to my Beam, my Beam is connected to 2 Sonos Ones also.

(Technically I don’t have a TV, my Beam is connected to my laptop but don’t this it makes a difference. To connect the beam to my laptop I use the optical adapter connected to an external soundcard and into my laptop, works great but looking to take it wireless)

Hi @jackson023, thanks for reaching out and welcome to the community. When using the Sonos Beam, you can wirelessly connect to your WiFi or hardwire to the router using an ethernet cable and when connecting to the TV you need to use the HDMI cable or optical audio adapter if your TV doesn’t have an HDMI-ARC input. You can also use AirPlay 2 on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac to stream your favorite music, movies, podcasts, and other audio directly to your Sonos Beam. Below are links that would be helpful to your concern.

Thanks for the response Krishma however I don’t think you’re quite following. I’m wondering how it would be possible to setup the Sonos Beam (using any external wireless adapters etc.) such that the Beam would be wirelessly connected to the TV.

No, there is no method for the Beam to be wirelessly connected to a TV.
