My Sonos ARC is connected to a Sony TV with a HDMI cable with ARC. It is also configured as an Alexa.
Sometimes I want the TV to be showing something, but the audio to be separate from the show. Right now it seems to “partially” work. If I start playing from an Echo (with the Sonos set as the default Alexa speaker) the TV audio is silenced, but the Alexa audio is unheard. Turning off the Alexa Audio (stop) does not restore the TV audio till I change something on the TV side, and even then, it seems to come back with the Volume at zero.
It would be great if I could explicitly state that audio on the Alexa side takes preference in all cases.
