Sonos Beam (Gen 1) to LG B7 HDMI ARC viewing Sky Q silence issue


Well-known Member
This happens quite frequently and is getting annoying.

When watching Sky Q my sonos beam will go silent. Sometimes it can happen after pausing a program, sometimes adverts can trigger it (possibly due to change from DD5.1 to DD2.0? and back etc.) and I think it's happened when changing channel. A slight rewind seems to fix the issue, however pausing and resuming doesn't.

It's a gen 1 connected via HDMI ARC to LG B7.

When silent the following shows in the app. Below that is a video of the issue. Below that is the app when the issue has resolved.

Does anyone know what is could be causing this and how to fix it?
