INFO Source code here: [url]https://github.com/jishi/node-sonos-http-api[/url] Sonos Web Controller draft (work in progress!): [url]https://github.com/jishi/node-sonos-web-controller[/url] Sonos IR control (requires lircd and IR reciever): [url]https://github.com/jishi/node-sonos-remote-control[/url] ============================================================== I know that there already is an attempt at this by this guy: [url]http://forums.sonos.com/showthread.php?t=32643[/url], but I found it to be a bit lacking in functionality so I decided to write up my own. I have created a simple web-based API using what I have, which could be useful for integrating stuff with other applications. This web based API is inspired by other RESTful APIs, however I don't think it follows the correct guidelines to be called a REST API. IT supports most basic features like: play, pause, seek, next, prev, volume, mute, setAVTransportURI It also supports these advanced fatures: State of player as
I'm using a Connect to switch between TV audio (line-in) and other traditional Sonos sources. I find the minimum 70ms delay on the line-in input to be maddening. While it occasionally works out that audio/video are reasonably sync'd, more times than not the Connect noticeably degrades A/V sync. Additionally, if other televisions are on in adjacent rooms (common occurrence) the delay in the Connect creates an obvious audio sync problem between devices. After having read the forums, etc. I understand some of the technical reasons for the delay; I’m not proposing we violate the laws of space/time. What I am proposing is a dual-mode line-in function. The primary mode would work exactly as it does now (ability to share Connect line-in with all Sonos components). The secondary mode would be a local only mode (no sharing) and would forgo the analog to digital conversion process and simply provide direct analog amplification for the line input. This would completely eliminate the line
Greetings, I recently picked up a mint Sonos bundle, ZP100, bridge unit & controller for $35 at a salvation army surplus store. YES! What a greet deal your thinking, after testing at home, the only thing wrong with it is that left speaker terminal post was snapped off. Every thing else is working flawlessly. I decided to start a thread on doing general repairs on your SONOS equipment. Hence, currently I am searching online for original SONOS speaker terminals and have found that there is very little replacement vendors out there. But, if anyone out there who might know of a good resource, please post those links here and I'm sure this in hand is common and will help the next person. :)) Cheers! Futura2020
Hi, I have been working on a simplified UPnP library which is aimed at Sonos that I want to make available to others. You can find the source-code here: [url]https://github.com/jishi/Jishi.Intel.SonosUPnP[/url] This is based upon Intels UPnP framework, which is opposed to the COM object that other attempts that I have found, based completely on managed code (no unmanaged code). This makes a huge difference if you are building anything multithreaded (WinForms, WPF etc). I will try to put up some example code for people to look at. Right now some of the features are pretty hacky since I'm still learning best practices, but hopefully it simplifies it a bit for someone. This is built for .NET 4 Client Profile. The requirements is only .NET 4, previous versions doesn't need to exist. Basic usage is this: [CODE] // Create the main object var discovery = new SonosDiscovery(); // Attach an event handler for topologychanged, this will be triggered as soon as it has
Hi I have a Cisco layer 3 switch (Catalyst 3560) and a wireless LAN that uses a Cisco LAN Controller (WLC 2504) and AP1042 access points. I have connected the Sonos components to the wired LAN on the same subnet as a computer with my music library, and it is able to connect to the Sonos components. However, I am unable to get my iOS devices on the WiFi network (same subnet) to connect to the Sonos components. I have enabled multicast on the WLC, and added the multicast group address 22.214.171.124 that I found on forum number 27459. (The iOS AppleTV Remote app started working when I enabled multicast, so there's some indication that it's working generally.) Does anyone have experience with this that you could share? Are there other configuration parameters--on the WLC or the switch--that need to be set? Thanks Bongo
Right now moderators enforce, that [quote=ratty] Promotion of commercial products is not permitted here. [/quote] [quote] Forum policy is not to allow the explicit exploitation of these forums for any commercial purposes outside of Sonos. This includes sales and support activity. To permit such operations could lead to conflicts of interest and a potential free-for-all. [/quote] ([url]http://forums.sonos.com/showthread.php?p=176642[/url]) Personally I think this is a policy which actually hinders Sonos to grow for specific target groups. Any third party contribution (regardless of being paid or not) will fill some perceived gaps/limitation of the current Sonos offering thus increasing the overall market appeal of the system. This forum is probably the only place where users looking for answers travel by to make an informed decision whether to invest into the Sonos ecosystem or not. For instance it took me a long time until I realized that there were Windows Phone Apps (and it's a p
It would be fantastic if SONOS could become DNLA compatible or PLEX media server compatible .... Or if SONOS propose a plugging to make PLEX and SONOS compatible.... PLEX media server work on WINDOWS / MAC / LINUX and propose free package for most of the NAS of the market....
I use a verizon mobile hotspot to provide wireless internet in my office, for my ipad, macbook, etc. There is no router, so will I be able to hook up the speakers. I'd like to know before committing to a purchase. I have 2 small rooms I need speakers for.
There are certain users, who don't utilize multi-zone capabilities, since they've picked up just a single Sonos player - be it Connect or Play - for one-room music experience. Naturally, those users don't need to keep the built-in WiFi in always ON state. Please, consider adding an option to disable WiFi, when it is not required. This will reduce power consumption, interference with other wifi sources, and keep the environment clean and free of extra EMR.
Have multi zone Sonos system and looking for a solution to have doorbell sound out over speakers. Found discussion regarding using a Viking SLP-1 or SLP-4 to accomplish this: [URL="http://www.remotecentral.com/cgi-bin/mboard/rc-custom/thread.cgi?23394"]http://www.remotecentral.com/cgi-bin/mboard/rc-custom/thread.cgi?23394[/URL] The SLP-4 has multiple doorbell sound options and runs ~$450 but does a lot of things not needed. Rather spend this cash on something else like another Connect:Amp. Any other options on this?
I'm new to Sonos, but would like to setup some Tasker tasks in Android to automate playing my favourite radio station, launching playlists, etc. Is there a reference for http POST commands that I could work from? Could someone point me in the right direction? My aim is to use Tasker with NFC tags to activate theses common tasks without the need to go into the app.
I've used InSSIder to look at wireless signals near me and it only detects a SonosNet signal if the Sonos controller (CR100) is on. When the controller goes to sleep the SonosNet signal disappears off InSSIDer despite music still being played. Why doesn't InSSIDer pick up the SonosNet signal ? Is there another wifi detector that would see it ? Would something like Wi-Spy see it ?
Hi Everyone, New to the forum, but not to Sonos. As a Dealer, I'm just beating the bushes to be able to control the Sonos equip. with High end Automation gear like Vantage Controls makes. Anyone written or seen this available? Thanks in advance for the help!! Aster
Has anyone connected their Sonos system from an office location to their home? I'd like to know what I need to check to ensure that things work. I have a VPN connection between the office and the home. I am able to remote desktop without issue, but I can not seem to get the Sonos system to connect to the home network. Does the Sonos need to be able to access the server with the music directly? Can it be streamed? etc. Thanks, Ed
For Sonos users who wish to choose which of their iTunes playlists are transferred to Sonos or for users who wish to use lossy formats for their ipods and lossless for their Sonos system. It makes a custom XML file on the NAS with unselected playlists removed and/or references adjusted to the lossless files. If you wish to only transfer a subset of playlists the application can be configured to display a playlist selector before the custom XML file is generated. The application can be configured to run and create the custom XML file on your NAS each time iTunes is closed. [url]http://www.darrenlink.talktalk.net/ituneslibrarymanager[/url] [url]http://www.darrenlink.talktalk.net/ituneslibrarymanager/download[/url] I have written an application that solves two main issues for Sonos and iTunes users. Many people like to use iTunes to catalog their MP3 collection for use with iPods but prefer to store lossless files (perhaps apple lossless) on their NAS for use with Sonos. The "
[U]Sonos without Windows[/U] I have a Linux server running Debian, a close relation of Ubuntu and a laptop running Ubuntu. I bought a Sonos ZP90 but not the controller.

I have used my Sonos equipment for 10 months without any problem, it has worked perfectly with my Linksys Wireless router (and my previous DSL service). Yesterday however, I changed my internet/tv provider to AT&T U-verse and my Sonos Desktop Controller can no longer find my ZoneBridge or my ZonePlayers. Nothing seems to be working. AT&T U-verse comes with a wireless router which has replaced my old Linksys router (this is probably where the problem lies). Does anyone know the answer to this? My ZoneBridge is hardwired to the at&t "2wire" router, everything is physically hooked up correctly, but is not working (maybe an IP address problem). I appreciate any help that I can get, thanks. [B][U]Update:[/U] for some reason, now the Sonos [I]equipment [/I]has contact with the router ... everything seems to be working now EXCEPT for the Sonos DESKTOP Sontroller (which still is "searching for the Zonebridges/-players[/B]
