Hi, I'm close to taking plunge into the world of Sonos but have been doing some reading this afternoon and found myself unsure if my TV is compatible with the Playbar that I was looking to buy.
My plan was to start by purchasing a Playbar and a Sonos:One and then add more speakers over time. I'm mainly after multiroom streaming capability. I have an existing LG Soundbar and Sub-Woofer (http://www.lg.com/au/sound-bars/lg-NB4540
) connected to my TV (a Sony KDL-55W800B - http://www.sony.com.au/electronics/support/televisions-projectors-lcd-tvs/kdl-55w800b/specifications
) and would look to replace with the Playbar. Other than listening to music I watch Freeview TV via my Xbox One and downloaded TV shows and movies via Plex, also on the Xbox.
I've seen a lot about Dolby Digital 5.1, DTS, HDMI and passthrough. Looking at the Sony TV specs above I'm not sure that the Playbar would work properly with the TV? However, I also saw that i could connect the Playbar to the Xbox One via the Optical Out port available on that device. I don't have any other devices connected to the TV so I'm thinking that could be my best option.
Any clarity people could offer would be appreciated!
