Can't get nVidia Shield remote to work with Sonos Beam

Wasn't sure which forum to put this in but I figure there's more chance of Beam owners having a Shield than Shield owners having a Beam.

For specifics, we're talking about the 2019 Shield TV Pro: NVIDIA SHIELD TV PRO, best streaming media device today.

Just got round to connecting it up this week and went to do the volume on it last night when watching a movie and found that the Shield remote doesn't control the Beam at all. I searched for the device but if it's supposed to work then i'm clearly doing something wrong.

My TV is this one: Specs - 58 inch Ultra HD 4K TV with HDR | Panasonic UK & Ireland.

I have the Beam connected to HDMI2 which I believe is the ARC port (if that's the correct way of saying it? If not then my lack of knowledge on this topic will already be shining through).

To a degree, yes. There's no volume indicator on the screen now though. No +/-, no numbers, so you just go by ear but it does work now.
