I just set up a Playbar and the results have been good for the most part. I've disabled the speakers on my 4 year old Samsung TV and I'm now getting the TV sound through the Playbar and I can control the Playbar's volume with the cable remote - all good things. However, as I was warned by the SONOS installer, I see a short "Not Available" message on the TV screen each time I adjust the Playbar's volume. In fact, one SONOS installer window stated:
Some TVs will show a message that the TV speakers are disabled whenever a volume command is sent from the remote control. There are ways to avoid this message being shown. At the end of Sonos setup you will be told where to find more information on this.
I did not notice any information at the end of the setup and I am wondering if anyone can advise how to eliminate the popup "Not Available" message or provide a link to the information that the Sonos installer touted.
