I’ve gone a beam set up through ARC it’s on an LG tv with magic remote. Alex works and can turn tv on and off. If I’m watching tv then decide to play music, but leave tv on, so I can see the picture but obviously have no sound due to music. How do I switch back to the tv sound with Alex. Tried everything stop music , alex play tv , switch to tv and so on. Only way I seem to be able to do it is take my phone out and select tv in the app. Seems sill this simple function. Can’t be done. As Alexa can not really do anything sort from turn my tv off and on and for this fiction I’m loosing a cantankerous HDMI port.

The Alexa command to switch Beam back to TV sound is "Alexa, switch to TV on [room name]". That one should always work. You might be able to shorten it to "Alexa, switch to TV" if you know for certain that Beam is accepting your query and not another Alexa device.
