I cannot make the Beam work with my telly; it's got the optical Audio output (no ARCH) so I used provided HDMI-to-optical adapter. The beam recognizes it during the setup, but again, no sound.
I saw suggestions to unplug other HDMI cables from the telly, but this is how the signal comes to it - through a single HDMI from a receiver, so how can I test the speaker if no signal is provided to the telly and, consequently to the Beam?
I used a different (working) HDMI cable with the provided adapter, no luck.
I then hooked the Beam to the PlayStation 3 optical audio -- no sound from there either.
Is the adapter faulty or shoulod I send the Beam back for a replacement?
Also, the Beam works great streaming Spotify from my phone.
