    Your BenQ Wireless TX (Transmitter) box has a local 'Loop through' HDMI Output port - connect that to an Input on the TV.

    If you wish to use ARC you will need to connect to an ARC Input on the TV and enable HDMI CEC Control on your devices - CEC can be a nightmare so you may have to rethink your audio plans and use Optical instead.

    Have you connected the BenQ Wireless Box HDMI Out to the TV?
