Question

Beam volume MUCH louder when casting from Google Home Hub rather than playing directly

I just got a Beam, using it with my Vizio P55-F1 and also have a Google Home Hub and Sonos One. Everything works great, but I noticed that if I ask the home hub to play Spotify music, which has the default speaker set to Vizio in the Home app, which then which plays out of the Beam via HDMI-ARC, it is SO much louder than if I just played it directly from the beam/Sonos app. It has to be at least twice the volume, and honestly seems a little TOO loud for what the volume is set at. Any idea why it’s doing this? Any settings to mess around with to balance the
volume levels out?

Hello, I am planning on purchasing the Vizio P55-F1 and I currently have the Beam and 2 play:1's.

How is your Beam's connection via HDMI ARC with the Vizio? Are you able to adjust the Beam's volume with the Vizio remote? Can you tell the Beam's Alexa to turn on or off the tv?
