Controlling volume from cable remote

Sonos community, I hope you can help :)

I am trying to control the volume through my cable remote and not the app.

I have two Elipson Planet L speakers wired into my Connect Amp and the Connect Amp is connected to the TV through an optical converter.

The setup is currently as follows:
1) Cable box to TV with HDMI cable
2) TV to audio converter (coaxial/optical to R/L audio converter) with optical cable (to get the best sound and avoid the lip sync delays with a 3.5mm audio jack)
3) coaxial/optical to R/L audio converter to connect amp with 3.5mm audio to R/L audio cable into the connect amp

I tried connecting an optical cable from the TV to the cable box and then using R/L audio cables directly to the connect amp and this did not work.

Your help is more than welcome!

Thank you,

Desperately, AmooseZuri 🙂

You can only do this with the playbar or playbase. However you can achieve something similar by use of a logitech harmony remote.

Thank you bockersjv. You are the first person to be able to find a solution without the playbar.
Have a wonderful day, Amr.
