How to increase the volume on the TV? Nothing is easier. It’s the most important TV feature. But not this time.

I stayed in a hotel room with a big smart TV. I wanted to turn it up and looked at a minimalistic remote:

— Is there a directional pad?

— No.

— That’s it, look, here is a VOL button!

— It mutes the sound .

— I might try to hold it?

— No, the voice assistant is activated.

I pressed all the buttons. I went through all menus. And I didn’t find out any solution. Eventually I gave up and continued watching TV quietly.
