I have my Sonos playbar connected to my TV, and I plug my firetv stick into an hdmi port on my TV, the video plays fine through the TV, but I can't get the sound to come out of my Sonos playbar

What codec is the Firetv stick putting out? If it's not either Dolby Digital, or stereo, the Sonos won't be able to interpret it. The TV doesn't interpret stuff it sends out via either optical or HDMI-ARC, it only deals with stuff on its own speakers.
