Talking to the Sonos people online they suggested I get an Amp to power my TV which I’ve been trying to do and can’t with the Connect so I ordered one and it came the other day I cannot figure out how to hook this up correctly. And I’m not sure that it can be hooked up the way I need it.
I have a TV, Cox cable, DVD player and I have Apple TV. I have four wired speakers in the ceiling. I constantly, move back and forth between the Cable box and Apple TV.
So hooking things up through the Sonos Amp through the HDMI which only has one connection. I can run the tv through it but will only get the screen saver, or I can run the cable box through it but get no TV. Talking to the Sonos people online they said it would be good if I got an AMP for each item, so like 5 Amps, " Not realistic". Maybe they just originally told me wrong and this won;t help me to replace my current Pioneer Multimedia center. I want to know, and I doing something wrong and s there a good way to hook this thing up or a way to run it through my Pioneer Amp and just push everything out from there into the app the Sonos amp or am I trying to do something they just can’t be done.
Sorry its so long winded, and Thanks

That will allow connection via the optical out on the TV.
