For compatible TVs, Beam introduces commands specific to TV use, including “Turn on the TV” and “Turn off the TV.” Beam also follows commands such as “Turn it up” and “Mute,” applying them to the TV volume.

To use these commands, Beam must be connected to your TV’s HDMI-ARC input, and your TV needs to have HDMI-CEC enabled. HDMI-CEC is sometimes referred to as:

Samsung: Anynet+
LG: SimpLink
Sony: Bravia Link
Phillips: EasyLink
Panasonic: Viera Link
Hitachi: HDMI-CEC

Amazon Alexa voice control for your TV (Alexa, turn the TV on/off) will not work if Beam is connected via optical adapter.
