Longtime Sonos and HT enthusiast here, been a customer since 2006. Finally upgrading my system to S2. I just purchased a Beam for my Kitchen TV.
My TV has no HDMI ARC and no optical out, so I’m using the optical port on my TiVo Vox Mini.
Not getting a signal from the optical port using the Sonos-supplied HDMI cable with Optical adapter.
I know the optical port is good; it works fine with my older Bose soundbar in both PCM and Dolby modes.
I’ve tried both the PCM only and Dolby settings for audio output on the TiVo, but Beam doesn’t see it.
I called support and was told it’s not Sonos’ problem because Beam is only supported to connect to TVs.
I’m going to try an HDMI audio extractor, if I can’t make that work, it’s going back.
Any suggestions based on your experience would be welcomed.
