My SONOS Beam is connected to my VIZIO TV. Whenever I tell Beam to turn on my TV it’s on a different source than what it was when the TV went off. How do I fix this or does Beam change sources via Alexa?

Hi there, jkm1974. Thanks for the post and welcome to the Community. Does this always go to the same output? Is this output the output of the Beam? I've heard of some TV's that will change the source of the signal depending on where the signal is coming from.

I'm not home where I can verify that but that could definitely be the case. Is there any way around that? Does Beam support being able to change inputs via voice?

Using Amazon Alexa voice control, you can tell Beam to switch to TV Audio input by saying: "Alexa, switch to TV". Depending on the TV model, you may be able to use Beam to change the TV input using Alexa.
