Support with sound on home cinema setup
currently I have a setup that works perfectly: Bose Soundbar 500 (with Bass module) / Apple TV 3rd Gen / Video Projector BenQ TH534.
Video projector does not support HDMI ARC, therefore:
- Apple TV is connected in HDMI to video projector
- Bose Soundbar is connected to Apple TV via optical sound cable
- Bass module works wirelessly
As I move to a new place, I would get rid of this optical sound cable to avoid crossing the room again with that cable (as Apple TV sits with the video projector).
It seems to me that my best bet would be to upgrade my Apple TV to the latest model (4K) which supports "Airplay 2" (as does Bose Soundbar 500 I read).
Do you think I could then get rid of the cable and stream the sound via Airplay from the Apple TV directly to the Soundbar, while the video goes through HDMI to the video projector? Does this work great?
Many thanks for your help,
