Best Way to Connect Play:5 to TV?
I have just purchased a Play:5 for my new apartment. In addition to listening to music, I would also like to connect it to the TV in our living room. What is the best method for doing this? Also, once connected to TV, will it be easy to toggle between TV Audio and normal music streaming? My roommate has also purchased a Play:3 for the apartment. Will both devices play the TV audio once the Play:5 is connected? Thanks for any and all guidance!

If configured this way, you can output the line-in source from any or all Sonos players in your household - like the Play:3 you describe.
The lipsync problem is quite annoying and I wouldn't recommend this set-up because of this but if they just want to hear commentary from the baseball or something it's OK. You will hear the click of the ball long after you see the bat hit it though.
That's a very expensive option though, I'd recommend looking at alternatives.
Samsung introduces its own delay by video processing. I used to have a similar set-up and, whilst Sonos delayed the audio, Samsung often delayed the video in a similar way and they were close. Not perfect but OK for a kitchen TV.
