I currently have a Sony Bravia 900E connected to a HT-NT5 soundbar which is paired for surround sound with 2 ZR5 rear wireless speakers. I have the soundbar connected through HDMI ARC input 3 and my cable and PS4 through HDMI 1 and 2 of the TV respectively. My goal is to be able to watch TV on mute, while still being able to listen to music playing through the HT-NT5 and the 2 ZR5 speakers. Is there a way to do that?
I have tried creating a group with the NT5 and ZR5, but it seems the TV will follow whatever the NT5 is doing. Once I start playing music on the group, the tv will switch to HDMI ARC input 3. I am able to listen to music on one of the ZR5's with the TV on mute, but I have not found a way to pair all of the speakers together. Any help is appreciated.
