If you use a Sonos Beam and connect up 2 more Sonos wireless speakers do you have any problem with sound being out of sync to the TV?

I’ve had no issues, was a really easy process as well. I was sure I would have issues as mine are older play ones that I’d never managed to get to work on the S2 app but they work flawlessly now.

I’d highly recommend adding the surrounds, really opens up the performance of the Beam. I’ve been playing MW2 and it’s like being in the middle of a Warzone!

Well i got my Sonos Beam 2 and installed it today. It's not very loud or any significant different sound to my TV!

It's set up just underneath the TV in my lounge and i've got the Sonos volume on 80/100. Even at 100/100 volume, its the same volume level as my TV on max, which isn't that loud. 

It's connected through by HDMI into my TV's HDMI (Arc) slot which is what the instructions said to connect it to. 

I've also changed the setting on the app to maximum bass and treble, but same bass level as my TV speakers.

I can change the Sonos volume using my Samsung TV remote but it also doesn't show any volume numbers on the TV just a + and - button.

Am i doing something wrong?

Is there any sound coming out of the soudbar? Is the TV volume off?

Yes, the sound is coming out of the soundbar and no sound coming from the TV. The voices seem a little clearer but that's the only difference really.

That suggests that you've wired it up properly.  Sorry, but that's the limit of my knowledge.

Ok, when I played Sonos Radio straight from my phone through the soundbar, it had loud volume and bass.  

So that suggests its a setting on the TV limiting the volume and bass.

Looks like you are not alone. A couple of different solutions here, mostly changing output format from the TV. https://en.community.sonos.com/home-theater-228993/sonos-beam-low-volume-6809698

Might be worth a shot

Doesn’t sound right, the difference is substantial vs TV speakers.

Check you’ve got audio over HDMI on the TV and connect earc if you have it.

Yep that’s exactly what is happening. I’ll try and solve it tomorrow otherwise will return it 😞

If you're watching Sky on the TV, you might want to check the sound settings on your Sky box.

The standard setting is (I think) 5.1 through HDMI, so with a soundbar only system it treats the bar as the tweeter only rather than channelling all the sound through it.

I appreciate I've written this in a very confident manner, which probably isn't justified. I had a similar problem with my soundbar, though, and it was the Sky Q settings that were causing it.
