Panasonic TX-50EX750B only 1 HDR enabled Hdmi port?

Hi all
At my wits end here
I have a Panasonic TX-50EX750B
My problem is it seems only 1 hdmi slot (hdmi 2)
Is enabled for HDR content but the (hdmi 2 slot is also the Arc connection,
So when i play my PS5 through that 2nd hdmi slot i get HDR , labelled in the top corner
When i try it in the other HDMI slots i do not get any HDR (no HDR on screen notification and i can clearly see the diference)
The problem is i have just bought a sonos beam 2 that connects via the ARC hdmi (i do not have E ARC)
but it means i have to remove the ps5 hdmi from hdmi 2 slot which is the arc slot meaning i lose HDR on the PS5
I currently have to connect the sonis to optical on tv thus resorting it to stereo only and no dolby atmos,
I have tried settings on tv and it seems only the 2nd hdmi slot Which is arc also is the only hdmi slot can take HDR
Below are two photos
PS5 through HDMi 2 slot (arc)
And the other photo is the display i get when its in any of the other hdmi slots
Is there any work around to getting the ps5 and sonos beam to connect to arc i understand a splitter wont work?
Is it just my tv is too old? I just want my ps5 playing in HDR and my sonos playing sound better than standard stereo
Thanks in advance for your time
