Need a new TV that "just works" with 1st Gen Sonos Beam

I currently have a 5 year old Sony Bravia that is on the way out - like right now. With the Sony HDMI-ARC from TV to Beam caused lip synch issues on SkyQ so it's set up as SkyQ optical out and TV Optical out into an optical switch that connects to the Beam using the Sonos optical to HDMI adapter. This solves the lip-synch but is a pain to have to switch the HDMI between the two when wanting to use TP apps or cast to it. While I'd love picture quality to be top of my priorities on the new TV, one of the main factors in choosing is the requirement that it will happily run SkyQ through the TV and out to the Beam with not synch issues. Would love to hear from anyone running a currently available TV with 1st Gen Beam with no problems. Sadly OLED ones are off the table due to previous family experience with burn-in and an 8 year old who couldn't be relied not to pause it and wander off. Thanks
