Sonos Beam w/ Alexa can turn off my TV, but can't turn it on

Userlevel 2
Hey guys,
I'm having a really weird user experience w/ the Sonos Beam and Alexa. I can easily command Alexa to turn off my TV (a Sharp SmartTV), but Alexa will not turn on the TV. According to your article (, this functionality should be supported.

Can you help me understand why this isn't working? Maybe I missed a step during setup or something.
