I’m using an LG CX 55” and the TV Remote will change the volume/mute the ARC and Sub but not the Five. Not sure if I set anything up wrong or anything.

The tv remote will change the Arc volume only and not all the speakers grouped with it.  

If you want to change the group volume you need to use the Sonos APP.

 

Are you attempting to use the Five as a surround speaker?  If so you need two and need to bond them to the ARC.  Then the volume will work for all the speakers in that Home Theatre set up.

Nah only have 1 Five speaker right now, that’s kinda annoying for right now. Thank anway. 

Odd if you can bond two, why can’t bond one and just have it be mono.

When you bond speakers to the Arc, they are used for surround sound channels, which always comes in to.  I don’t recall ever seeing a mono surround sound channel, on any system.  It would be odd if mono were allowed.
