2011 MacBook Pro for torrenting in a Home Theatre setup.

Hi guys
I’m using my daughters ex school laptop for torrenting and I’d like to get the best possible sound and also make it an integrated part of my home theatre set up. I’ve been using an old cheap miniport to hdmi cable and it does transfer audio and video but interrupts ARC. Anyone know if a newer 4K capable cable will help? Or any other workaround? Setup is Apple TV 4K new Denon DRA800H older Philips PLF47 and these all handshake until I connect the Macbook. Perhaps I need to upgrade to a computer with HDMI ports? (Won’t be easy as laid off due to Covid lol)
Thanks in advance
