We had to exchange our original Q950T (65") due to issues with the display. Having received the replacement TV, we now find the mute function on univeral remote will briefly mute the soundbar (connected via optical) but then the sound comes back on a second later.
Seems it's either sending the command twice, or something more complicated going on. Has anyone else experienced this, and have any suggestions on a resolution please?
Just out of curiosity are you double-tapping the mute button? Also is the soundbar in clear sight of the remote?
Nope, single tap. It's really reproducible as it happens EVERY time.
And yes, the Sonos is wall mounted directly beneath the TV. There's no question as to line of sight between remote, TV, and soundbar.
have you tried to unpair then repair the remote to the TV? Also if possible with the Sonos can you try connecting HDMI?
Heres some information that may help:
Reset the remote.
Remove the batteries, and then press the Power button for eight seconds to reset the remote. Then, reinsert the batteries and try to use the remote again. Check out the user manual if you need help accessing the battery compartment.
Check if the remote is sending an IR signal.
Take either a digital camera or use the camera on your phone or tablet. Point the remote at the camera, and then press and hold the Power button on the remote. As you hold the button down, look at the camera's screen. If the remote is sending an IR signal, you will see a colored light coming from the remote control.
If you have a Smart Remote, try to pair it with the TV.
If the remote will not pair:
Sometimes there can be some issues with using two remotes for the same TV. Compatability is not always guaranteed.
Thanks. Must admit I can't see why it would be an issue.
I assume these remotes speak to the TV, and the TV sends the IR signals to other equipment. If that's correct, then one remote is behaving differently to the other.
