I’ve read past posts/problems (2020) with Phonak TV connector but would like updated guidance to correct constant chiming. A week ago I purchased version 2 TV connector and it paired immediately with Phonak Niada UP aids. For a day it seemed to work as advertised and then things broke down. I can handle a TV connector jingle if I walk away from TV or re-enter TV room, though I doubt aid connector is set up that way. But lets cut to the chase. With the TV turned off and the TV connector showing no power/off I’m getting TV connector chimes inside and outside the house. Walking up stairs my HA chimes, with TV/Connector turned off. So I reset TV connector and still have problem. I also turned TV connector off, opened HA battery doors and then turned aids back on. Problem still persists. This is with TV off and connector displaying no lights, since the connector turns off when TV turns off.
I used the toslink connector for audio and the USB cable for power on and off, when TV goes on and off. I can live walking various distances from on TV/on connector and still hear TV, though it seems I can be several rooms away and still hearing TV. Can live with that but the constant chiming, jingle I get many times a day with TV off, connector (on lights on) off is maddening. I shouldn’t have to repair my aids for this issue to correct though as I said I’ve done that already with no success.
So is the Phonak TV connector faulty or the stream connection faulty, since I don’t believe this is a HA problem. I also should mention I have no other streaming devices/BT devices in home - just TV connector. I also should mention that many times now I walk away TV after turning off - yet sometimes my aids still stay in TV connector mode and don’t revert back to autosense. In fact many times now I’m not even sure if I’m in autosense mode or TV connect mode - with TV/connector turned off.
I have also gone into iPhone phonak my-connect and silenced the (speaker icon) but that just turns off all incoming sound from TV. So I see no way to turn off or eliminate TV notification chime.
The TV connector works pretty well when watching TV, though there seems to be some serious sound changes (louder or softer) when changing channels. But that’s probably due to the channel/show I’m watching (volume setting) versus the connector or Phonak aids. But when I turn TV off I want my aids to immediately revert to autosense and not stay in TV-connect mode. And I also want my aids to stay silent with TV off, versus 50 to 100 TV-connector chimes a day. Any assistance is Appreciated.
