Just purchased the playbar and sub. I noticed from my tv there is no on and off for tv speaker. What i did is lower the volume of tv to zero and product works great. My question is there any way i can buy a remote control for the playbar??? Since if i use the tv remote the playbar will not work and the sound tv is the one working.... any thoughts???

Another thing also i notice soundbar is always on.is that how it works???

Do you have another remote, such as from a cable company, that can be trained to another device like a universal remote could? If yes, you could use the Sonos remote control setup to set up that other remote to control the Sonos Playbar volume. This is how I have set up my Samsung TV's remote - one mode controls TV volume, another mode controls Sonos volume.

You are supposed to turn the TV speakers off through the TV menu and then teach the Playbar the TV remote signature (it's in Settings/ Room settings/ TV remote iirc).

Playbar is always on..

Have you looked for a Roku remote control app for your phone, and use that as a remote control?
