I am building a home and am going to start out with a very modest living room set up of PlayBar, Sub & either two Play:1's or two 3rd party speakers (with connect amp) as surrounds. I will also have two outdoor speakers over patio connected to connect amp. My primary question is, if the TV is wired into the PlayBar via digital optical, will I be able to play the tv sound outside? I understand there will be lag, but just hoping to be able to listen to sporting events while on the patio or in the yard. On that note, will I still be able to listen to the TV in 5.1 surround inside while the outside speakers are also playing the tv audio? Thanks!

Yes, the TV source can be played over any and all other Sonos units. All you need to do is group the outside 'Room' with the TV 'Room'. The TV will continue to play inside and the TV audio will be streamed outside. Grouping is a quick and easy process, just bring up the room selection screen, tap Group on the TV room, then select the rooms you wish to group with the TV, then Done.
