Bose & Sky Q Mini Box power issues

honda vtech

Guys i have a Sky mini q box in the bedroom connected to a Bose Solo15 series 11. All works great but i cannot get the sky remote to switch the Bose on and off. is it because the Q box is wired to the tv via HDMI but the Bose is wired to the Q box via Optical. The manual states several Sky codes for the Bose remote to control a cable box etc but i cannot get it to accept a code. The sky remote found the Bose easy enough for the tv and the sound bar but cannot control power on the Bose.. Any ideas? Solo was bought Dec 2016.. Sky Q installed around then as well

Switching the soundbar power on/off is down to a function known as HDMI CEC between your TV and the soundbar.
In this configuration your Sky remote cannot on it's own turn off the soundbar.
