    Hi mreilly2002, and welcome!

    Connecting the Sky Glass TV’s eARC HDMI port with an HDMI port on the BeoSystem3 will not work. Search the archive forums and you will find threads like these: https://archivedforum2.beoworld.org/forums/p/23067/191023.aspx#191023 / https://archivedforum2.beoworld.org/forums/p/44743/324322.aspx#324322.

    As I think there is no (optical) audio output on the TV, the option you have is to extract the audio signal from the eARC port and then feeding it into the BS3 either with a coax spdif or an HDMI lead, using something like this: https://marmitek.com/collections/hdmi-audio-extractor/products/connect-ae14-hdmi-audio-extractor-4k-arc or this https://www.reichelt.nl/nl/en/hdmi-earc-audio-adapter-extractor-4k-18-gb-s-pure-ptchdearc4k-p311687.html?CCOUNTRY=662&LANGUAGE=nl&GROUPID=5391&START=0&OFFSET=16&SID=93Xlul5qwQATUAAEhF17k8d54b7f16b05b0e810d1859a0f9e7465&LANGUAGE=EN&&r=1. There are many if you google a bit.

    My advice is to be critical when selecting one: if I am not wrong the Marmitek wants you to press a button each time you use it? I would not want to do that!

    I use a BeoSystem 3 for processing audio only using it’s spdif coax input and that works fine with me (5.1 max). I believe that when using one of its HDMI inputs you can play also 7.1.

    Good luck, let us know your next steps.

    Regards, Johan
