Hi. I have a beam with two ones in a home cinema setup with a projector and PS4. The projector does not have HDMI ARC output nor does it have optical out.
I have been using an HDMI splitter connected to the PS4 HDMI out to split off audio in the form of optical.
I have then used the Sonos optical to HDMI adaptor and have run a long HDMI cable to my beam under the projector screen.
The system works, except that I have a really long cable running across my room that I want to remove.
I have tried replacing the HDMI cable with a wireless extender but I get no audio from my sonos system.
I have also tried putting the HDMI splitter on the other end of the wireless system (i.e. next to the beam) but still get no audio. It would seem that something that the beam needs is lost via the wireless system.
Does anyone have any suggestions?

Most wireless extenders don’t have the capability to handle HDMI-ARC, which is what that adapter is creating. I think you might find a newer, and likely more expensive version that does, but it isn’t something I’ve investigated. Search for one of those, and I think your issues will go away.
