Recently got the Sonos Beam (Gen2). Bit annoyed that it requires an app to setup. An app that demands to know my location otherwise refuses to load. But anyway…
I setup the speaker, plugged in a mix of cables to get my TV connected
Beam > HDMI (included) > Optical adapter (included) > Aux converter (my own) > TV
Everything worked great. We were watching TV and I deleted the app.
Next day, I turn on the TV and there is no sound. The Beam has a solid white light and if I press the Play button it flashes orange. I re-downloaded the app, turned the speaker off and on, wiggled some of the cables… not sure what i did but it started working again. If I press the Play button it goes from a White light to a Green light, muting or unmuting the sound. All seems well. I deleted the app again… I don’t want it.
Next day. I turn on the TV and there is no sound. We’re back to White/Orange lights.
What am I doing wrong here? I just want to plug my TV into this speaker and have sound. Do I have to forever have this app on my phone tracking my location to make the speaker work??
