Is there a way to make the screen show a volume number/amount? not just "Home cinema +/-" when you're changing the volume?

Hi there, ladofdestiny. Thanks for the post. If you are looking for your TV to change how it's displaying the volume, you may want to consult your TV's user guide. This usually outlines all options and menus within your specific TV.

If you do not wish to see "Home Cinema +/-" at all, you may want to see if there is a way (in the user guide) to turn off the IR receiver since the Beam should be handling that (assuming you have it plugged into HDMI-ARC). This should stop the message from popping up at all.

Turning off the IR sensor on the tv? Wouldn't that mean i couldn't change channels, etc with the remote any more?

Turning off the IR sensor would just address the TV seeing the IR volume commands from the remote. The Beam acts as your IR receiver when plugged into the TV via HDMI ARC, so the remote should still be able to communicate with the TV. Alternatively, you might be able to use a universal remote to only control channel changes for the TV.

Either way, it seems that you may want to reach out to Panasonic about the possibility of turning off the "Home Cinema" message as that would likely be easier.
