Using Sky Glass speakers and external speakers simultaneously?

Hi,

 

I don't currently have Sky Glass. Does anyone know if you can use the built-in Sky Glass speakers together with external speakers at the same time? For example, I have an existing Sonos kit which I understand would work perfectly well with Sky Glass (via eARC).

 

On most TVs, if you switch audio output to an external device then built-in speakers generally stop working (often for good reason like sound syncing issues). Just wondered if Sky Glass is the same?

 

Thanks

Glass is designed to disable the internal speakers when an eARC or ARC device is detected on HDMI #2 and there's no user option to override this behaviour.

That's not uncommon on TVs.

 

My TV permits internal an external speakers BUT only when Optical connection is used for the external speakers😉
