My installation: a playbar 2i + flex2i + sub 2i. My Pana plasma TV was too old to give 5.1 DD from ARC output. So I bought a switch (Feintech VSW04202 HDMI 2.0 ) with optical output and dedicated sound HDMI output.
Routing: Sources (blu ray player, nvidia box...) -> HDMI input feintech -> output A hdmi arc to the TV / and output B hdmi (audio only, black vidéo) to the soundbar hdmi input. I tried the optical SPDIF too.
I tried every settings in the Bluesound app. I selected Dody Digital 5.1 from the sources (Netflix, DVD) and no dts, and nothing come out from rear and sub. No wifi problem from the sub or flex2i . I tried the radio and stereo mix, and there is sound from the flex2i rear. So no problem from wifi, the rear and sub ae connected. The whole set is in the HomeTheater Group from Bluesound.
I tried both the optical and HDMI output from the Feintech switch (and choose the correct input on BluOS), and nothing works. Only the soundbar is delivering sound. I'm pretty sure the Feintech is ok (i used passthrough settings, Dolby 5.1 settings...) . It seems the soundbar does not see Dolby input (no logo on the BluOS app) or don't manage them.
I sent a request to the support crew, with log files. No answer yet.
It's pretty crazy because we bought the rear flex 2i for Christmas and were thiniking it would work like a breeze, but it's really difficult!
