TV's are only Airplay receivers, not senders, so they can't send anything to the Homepods. This may of course change in the future, but as of now, not possible.Oh, so this is a big proof you can't use HomePod as a surround system unless you use Apple TV?
What is not fair? You don't buy a product that didn't suit your needs of course.I think it's not fair
You rip the disc, put it on your server, and stream it to the Apple TV. That's what we do.but what if i want to play a DVD or Blu-ray?
