Given that Beam's official release is today, and yes I know there were some early shipments of it, there are very few people that have Beam at this point. You might want to provide your TV's model number, and maybe if someone else has the same, or similar, TV model, they can respond.
Did you find out?
That is incorrect, that is something displayed by the TV based on how it handles the HDMI CEC protocol. As explained above, there are users who have proper volume indication displayed while others have something more basic like you are seeing, and some have nothing at all. It is dependent on the TV, as you’ve seen yourself between the two LG models, and you would need to contact LG in order to address it. If you’d rather not then that’s your choice, but this has nothing to do with Sonos.
Can you list some of the TVs that show a digital volume indicator with the beam? Thanks.
A couple of days ago i sent an email to Sono's asking this very question. I have a LG OLED and like all only get the + and - sign for volume....My point is this , if Sonos can make a + and - sign appear on your tv screen, they can make a lot more show as well.... Their answer was that i should come on this board and discuss it with everyone else....So in other words, go away.. I feel as a group if we complain about it enough , we might get some upgrade to the software....Time will tell.
I agree with you. It is very annoying to be without the digital volume indicator and is the first thing I noticed.
Add me (and my family) to the list of customers who would appreciate this functionality.
I also chimed in on LG’s forum here…
Jamal the LG moderator doesn’t seem very helpful but did eventually agree to escalate the issue. However his last update was June 2019. I am going to attempt escalating with LG support.

Is there anyupdate on this. Really interested to see the result as I am having the same issue.
Also have this issue with LG C9 55inch. Frustrating.
Jus trying to imagine why you would want this. To see what you are doing it is good to see you are adjusting up or down, but in my view appropriate volume levels are measured by your ears, not by telling you the level is 30 of 100. Why the need for this (in my view) uselessinformation?
My reason for wanting a volume number vs + and - is because I wear hearing aids. When I’m watching TV solo I have to increase the volume to my hearing. When I’m watching with my wife, I can’t adjust the volume to a certain predetermined level that isn’t deafening to her ears. Having a volume number displayed would aid in making Volume adjustments the same each time.
I understand. Hadn’t thought about that. Then adjusting volume with the app is the only possibility. And petition LG…...
