Volume level shows a different value for the TV and the Soundbar

    IMPORTANT: This article applies only to specific products and/or operating systems. Check Applicable Products and Categories for details.

    There is a difference in the way the volume value of the Soundbar and the connected TV is displayed, and the difference in the values can be seen when:

    • You turn on the BRAVIA Sync/Control for HDMI setting.
    • You switch the Speaker Output setting of the TV from TV speakers to Audio System.

    For example, because the TV is designed to display the volume in a range from 0 to 100db, and the Soundbar displays the volume in a range from 0 to 50db, when the TV shows 40 the Soundbar will show 20. This is normal and not a malfunction.

    • The TV displays Volume 40
    • The Soundbar displays Volume 20
