    Hi, I'm using the new Apple TV with my projector and then using airplay to stream the audio to Sonos. It works quite well most of the time, but the audio is lagging a little bit and I'm curious to explore the built-in possibility to calibrate the sound so it syncs, but funnily when I press the...

    Listening to music while using Apple TV

    If I have a HomePod or HomePod mini paired to an Apple TV, can I play music through airplay from my phone, while whatever video I'm watching on the TV is muted, or will the speaker not allow that? Just need to know whether I'll need a separate speaker for that. Thank you very much.
