Got my Beam today. Got it hooked up to the TV via the provided optical to HDMI cable. Sounds great. Also got it linked to services like Spotify, and I tested playing via AirPlay from my phone, and registered it as a device with our Amazon Echo. Everything works and sounds great. And switching between AirPlay, a built-in service, or Alexa control is as easy as simply pressing play on that method or using the voice control. What I can’t figure out is how you switch back to the TV as the sound source gracefully without using the app, and also while maintaining the previous volume level. If you’re playing Spotify then you go to the Sonos app and return the source to “TV”, the volume control is no longer accurately linked to what the level on the TV thinks it is. So I used the tv remote to turn the volume down all the way but the Beam still had sound coming out. So then I had to use the Sonos app to turn the volume down the rest of the way, at which point the Beam was actually playing the level that the TV THOUGHT it was playing at (zero). Then you could control the Beam volume accurately again with the TV. Strange and annoying. How can I more gracefully deal with this?
