I recently got a Beam as the speaker for my MAC, from which I play both music and Movies.
The Beam is connected through the HDMI->TOS cable into a Thunderbolt hub’s SPDIF port.
I have two problems, one an annoyance, the other more serious:
- I can’t control the volume through the MAC volume controls. Only the volume slider on the Sonos S2 Controller app can change the volume.
- After sitting idle for a while, the Beam reverts to the first item on my Sonos Favorites list and no longer is set to output through the “TV” music source. I have to manually go to the Sonos controller App, right click on the “TV” source, and select “Play Now”
Any clue on these two problems?
