Thanks a lot, everything is clear, but what if I only watch movies which might have Atmos or TrueHD from internet through the TV's apps and want to send the sound to Sonos Arc? But the TV has only ARC HDMI, how to use ARCANA in this situation?
1. PLAY YOUR APPS from external source !
2. Read the FAQ !!!
My TV is ARC, can this device makes it eARC?
If your TV has ARC input, it cannot be converted to eARC short of buying new TV. The capabilities that your TV has over the ARC connection (5.1 or Atmos/DD+ for LG TV’s and some others) will remain unless the manufacturer decides to update it via firmware.
To overcome the limitation (or if there is no ARC connection such as in a projector or monitor) people are running theirs apps from external HDMI sources from which they can get FULL AUDIO up to Atmos over TrueHD.
Arcana takes ANY HDMI output from ANY HDMI device and passes the HDMI signal to TV and whatever sound format supported by the eARC device (typically SONOS Arc or BOSE 500/700), including Atmos over TrueHD.
For example: External HDMI source > Arcana > one output to TV/projector/monitor and one output to SONOS Arc.
Arcana allows for the transfer of FULL AUDIO including Atmos over True HD from any source, It does not alter anything on your TV. The ARC port of your TV does not gain any additional functionality.
Arcana converts any HDMI Video/Audio output from any device (source, switcher, splitter, matrix and any of our devices) into a suitable HDMI eARC port where SONOS Arc can receive FULL AUDIO including Atmos over TrueHD as well as an other format that your TV may not support.
