I was browsing the Sonos "tips and tricks" section of their website and I came across this page:

http://blog.sonos.com/tips-and-tricks/tip-using-line-in-on-sonos/

And right in the opening paragraph I read: "Or if you’re grilling on the patio, you could listen to the game that’s playing on the TV in your living room."

How in the heck can I do that? :) I have a Connect hooked up to on of my AVR's inputs to listen to Sonos. What do I need to do to get the AVR TV audio to stream to my Play 5 on my patio?

You need an output from the av amp to the input on the Connect. Then you go to the sources on the play:5 and select line in and you'll get whatever is playing on the av amp.

Cool, so where my DirecTV goes *in* to my AVR, get RCA cables from that input and go *out* to my Connect, and then change the settings on the controller for my Play 5 to line-in? That's it?
CRAW,

Yes.

DirecTV --> Line-In
Line-Out --> ARV In
