It’s been a while since people asked a similar question, but perhaps advice has evolved. Is there a workaround to make a single RF TV remote control Playbar volume (IR). I realise they won’t communicate natively,but is there a good workaround. TV is Loewe Bild i.55 and gorgeous remote uses RF

If you upgraded to a Beam or an Arc you could use CEC to control the volume with your TV remote. (Assuming your TV does CEC properly).

As a DIY project you could potentially use a micro computer to pretend that it’s a soundbar, intercept Volume commands, and issue IR commands to PLAYBAR.
