Sonos Playbar doesn't play TV sound unless power cycled

Hey guys, I've got a problem.

Sonos playbar with 2 Sonos SL. Worked beautifully without problems for 2 months.

Now, it only plays TV if I power cycle it. It still plays music from internet, I can access it fully, I can change the input to TV, but there is no sounds from TV. After power cycle back to full functionality. But after every time I switch off the TV I have to restart the sound system.


Wtf? :)

Try unplugging the TV and Playbar from power for a couple of minutes. If this doesn’t work, try using a different optical cable.

I think that this is a TV issue. A TV reboot or firmware update might help. There is no feedback over an optical cable. Therefore it is not possible for SONOS to send anything to the TV that might corrupt the TV.

Thank you. Will try out and revert
