Working with a large system consisting of 16 x Sonos Ports feeding a Symetrix Audio System with automatic signal sensing, whereby the Symetrix switches over to Sonos when it detects a signal coming out of the phono output.
Has worked perfectly fine for the last 18 months then started playing up around the end of September.
Managed to properly troubleshoot today and worked out that the Sonos is outputting a momentary signal exactly two minutes after the Port is paused/stopped but I’m also suspicious that it’s sending out this same signal at other random times as the client has reported the Symetrix switching sporadically for the last 5 weeks.
Have a feeling this is down to the Idle/Eco mode that was advertised as being rolled out on all Sonos products in 2022 but just wondering why it outputs a signal when going into idle mode and if there’s any way around this?
From other posts I’m led to believe that it isn’t possible to disable Idle Mode so wondering how I’m going to fix this without having to manipulate the signal sensing to listen for a longer “pulse” before switching.
Would rather fix the root of problem if at all possible
