Beam App - Audio Issues

I've reported this a few times via "Report a Problem" on the Xbox but thought I'd see if anyone else is having audio issues with the Beam app.  Seems to only be streams that are using FTL (non-FTL steams seem fine).  I also get audio through optical out on the streams since my headset uses optical, but I get no audio via HDMI though my Denon AV receiver for the FTL streams.

Anyone else having issues?

I think you will have more luck visiting Beam over on

Remember to introduce your self here:

Yeah, I'm having the same issues with audio via HDMI output to my tv.

No audio from certain streams at all.

Optical out to my wireless headset works fine. Although the audio volume seems to be controlled by my headsets chat volume which is weird. The main audio volume on my headset doesn't alter the volume at all 

Kind of annoying if I'm talking to friends whilst watching them stream, as the game audio drowns out my friends voices from the party chat.

Hi All,

If you are having issues with Beam on the console, please make sure to report them directly on the console using the Xbox Insider Hub.  We definitely will take your reports and pass them along to the developers for further investigation.  Make sure you include the details from these posts in the description as those details are also helpful.
