    The actual setup I have in my home... (and used most when The Raptors or Blue Jays are not playing...)

    • Apple TV HDMI to TV HDMI 2 (The Cable Box is in HDMI 1)
    • TV HDMI ARC (or HDMI out) to The POWERNODE.

    For at least the Apple TV to TV HDMI in, our good friends down the hall at NAD Electronics, strongly encourage you to use HDMI Certified Cables to reduce 4K and DOLBY issues.

    Thanks so much for helping out. I hope you don't mind me asking some follow-up questions:

    Does CEC work with this?

    Can you for example control the volume with the Apple TV Remote?

    Can you control the volume with the TV remote?

    When you power off the apple TV, does it power-off the TV also?

    When you only use the powerNode for streaming, for example spotify connect, does the tv stay turned off?

    Yes CEC works great and I control the volume with either TV or Apple Remote. Honestly, though I may have from force of habit performed IR learning as documented here - https://support1.bluesound.com/hc/en-us/articles/206809498

    I don't turn off my Apple TV - I just let it sleep - I do turn off the TV.

    When I stream, the TV can remain off

    I have followed Tony's instructions and everything seemed fine, but (there's always a but) every time I launch my TV provider app inside the Apple TV there's no sound unless I go to the app settingsand specifically choose to output the audio to the Powernode. If I run any other app (Disney+, Netflix, HBO, you name it) the output sound is by default the TV speakers, but since I have a HDMI Arc cable between the TV and Powernode, the sound output goes through the latter. Any ideas about what may be wrong? Thanks in advance for your help.
