Sound bar keeps switching from Music (spotify/amazon music)

When I'm listening to any of the music apps while the TV is on, my Command Sound Bar keeps switching from the music I'm listening to, to the Tv imput and plays whatever is on Tv. How can I prevent this from happening. I'd like to play music while the tv is on at the same time.

    Do you use the arc input on the tv to connect to the soundbar? If so, then I don’t think you will be able to do what you want. The TV forces the receiver or soundbar to match its input. I have a receiver, but I stopped using the TVs ARC input for this very reason.
