Would appreciate a quick solution to manually switch between TV-mode and Music-mode especially when listening to TV-concerts. Not so good sound listening to music from my TV, AS I have when listening from Spotify. Anyone? 🙂

Hi there, SisselSw. Thanks for posting and welcome to the Community. I am happy to forward this topic along to the team for consideration and visibility. In the meantime, you may want to try out TV Autoplay. This will automatically switch the audio from Music to TV once the Beam gets a signal from the TV. Additionally, there is another option that will allow you to break apart any group the Beam would be in so you don't have to stop the music from playing in other rooms.

TV Autoplay

Turn on TV Autoplay (default) so audio plays directly through the home theater speaker when you turn on your TV.
If music is playing when you turn on the TV, the music stops and the home theater speaker switches to TV audio.
Tap "..." > Settings > Room Settings and select the room.
Tap TV Setup and Control > TV Autoplay.

If the home theater speaker is part of a group when the TV is turned on, it drops from the group (default).
Select On or Off.

Ungroup on Autoplay

You can include your home theater speaker in a group if you’re playing music in a group of rooms.

Turn on Ungroup on Autoplay to ungroup your home theater speaker when you turn on the TV (default).
Tap "..." > Settings > Room Settings and select the room.
Tap TV Setup and Control > Ungroup on Autoplay.
