I had no real difficulty pairing my Costco KS10.0 (debranded Phonak P90-R) to my Sony Bravia (Android 8.0) TV, but once I’ve done so, unpredictably the hearing aids will “seize” the sound output and silence the TV speakers. Typically this happens when something ELSE (perhaps an incoming text, email, or calendar alert) prompts the HAs to transiently change hearing aid program, but the sound output from the TV doesn’t return to its prior state.
I cannot find anything in the settings app for the TV that would permit me to change this other than disconnecting the HAs themselves. Other BT sound output devices (Beats X earbuds, AirPods Pro earbuds) don’t do this.
Is there a setting I could change on the HAs themselves to make them receive the TV sound out when I want them to but leave the TV’s own speakers as the sound output destination when I’m watching TV along with other people?
