I'll submit a report when I can duplicate the issue. But until then, here are the details of my Sonos S2 controller:Computer Operating System - Windows 11Sonos Connect - hardwiredSonos OS: S2Version: 14.20.1 (build 70436090)Hardware Version: 184.108.40.206-1.0Series ID: C100I'm having the following issue: Music will randomly stop playing and then come back on. It happens with SiriusXM, Pandora, and Spotify when being played through Sonos S2I've noticed this over the past ~2 weeks and it's getting worse by the day. Its happening now several times in a 30 minute time period. Can you please suggest anything that I may do to get this S2 controller to perform as it was doing prior to this issue?Thanks very much.
Since last year I’m having issues streaming YouTube Music and YouTube (audio only) to my Sonos devices. I was able to stream YouTube to my Ones as well as to Sound bar paired with older Sonos 1s. Now when I try to stream something from YouTube (using my phone) content is being stopped and there is this “sad” face screen in YouTube.The same is when I try to stream anything from YouTube Music using Sonos App.I read some funny answers on this forum (like try to remove and re-add YouTube Music - yeah tried that, and it didn’t work) but no real answer why YouTube-related apps don’t play well on Sonos.All I have is “Unable to play “song title here” - unable to connect to YouTube Music.Oh.. and the Error logs, here you go: Monday, February 6, 2023 - 9:11 AM Central TimeUnable to play 'Sacrifice' - unable to connect to YouTube Music.Monday, February 6, 2023 - 9:11 AM Central TimeUnable to play 'Sacrifice' - unable to connect to YouTube Music.Monday, February 6, 2023 - 9:11 AM Central TimeUnabl
New User, New Beam Gen 2 hook up help. There are so many threads and great info here on the forum and I have spent hours reading through them and thanks for all that post. I guess I'm a bit lost or confused somewhat on the set up so, perhaps you folks could chime in on our set up . Here is how I have it set up as of yesterday:Nvidia Shield is connected to HDMI 3 to my LG Oled C2 TV. I have the beam connected through the HDMI 2 Port ARC to the Sonos gen 2 HDMI port. I do not have any Surround sound set up as yet, I will probably get a sub but for now I guess you can say all we have is the Sonos sound bar connected. I was having a problem getting any sound at all so I contacted Sonos (great support) and we got the Beam working but I am not sure what audio I am actually getting The LG is set to Sound HDMI to Wired external device. The format that shows on the Beam is PCM 2.0 …. My content is a mixtures of content sent from the Shield that can be a number of services like Amaz
Does "Search" on the Sonos app look through all items in the subscribed services? I mean those which are listed under "Browse" in the app.Here is an example of the omissions I find. I am in the UK and my subscribed services in the Sonos app include TuneIn, MyPlayer Radio, Radioplayer, and Sonos Radio. The radio station "Absolute 80s" is a UK station carried by TuneIn, MyPlayer Radio and Radioplayer, as I can verify from their web sites. However when I search on the Sonos app for "Absolute 80s" it lists only Radioplayer.What I am trying to establish is how comprehensive the "Search" facility is and whether I always need to painstakingly look through the services under "Browse" to see all the options for streaming. PS: I am using Sonos S2 app on Android.
I’m not sure how to word my question, but here it goes however, I don’t want to ‘hear’ any comments that blames someone else.I would like to know the technical process that explains why compatible and connected devices cannot piggyback on each other for full control. For example, I open Sonos using my iPhone. I have the Amazon Music app on my phone; Amazon Music shows on the Browse screen in the app, and plays perfectly. I also have the Amazon Music app on my Apple Watch which can control the music on my phone. So my question is, why can’t I control the Amazon music playing on Sonos which is connected to my phone, using my Apple Watch? I’m logged in to Amazon in Sonos and my phone and the Amazon Music app is on my watch and is connected to my phone. If Sonos has granted access to my Amazon Music account and my phone app is open and logged in, I just want to understand why the devices can’t be linked and utilized.
Right or Wrong? Does connecting Gen1 Play 5's together via Cat 5 actually improve the transfer of data? Note, not connected to the router, just in a bank together. I'm guessing that if they are connected via Cat 5 then one of the 4 acts as the receiver that talks to Sonos Bridge on WiFi? Configuration below... Room (1) Router > Cat 5 > Sonos Bridge Gen 1 Room (2) Sonos Play 5 Gen 1 x 4, all connected to each other via Cat 5 Cable
I have both Sonos 2 and Sonos 2 on my iPhone. One house has an all Sonos 1 system. A second house has an all Sonos 2 system. If I use the Sonos 2 system, when I return to the house with Sonos 1, the Sonos 1 app will not find or recognize the Sonos 1 system. If I uninstall the sonos1 app and reinstall all the speakers the Sonos 1 system works perfectly until I visit the second house and use the Sonos 2 app with the Sonos 2 system. Upon return to Sonos 1 house the Sonos 1 app will not recognize the sinks 1 system and I have to uninstall and reinstall again to get the Sonia 1 system to work.Does anyone else have this issue? Despite what Sonia advertises, is it not possible to have both Sonos 1 and 2 apps installed on the same devise?Does anyone have a fix for this problem?
Under the music note on the Sonos app I lost the TV icon which had immediately synchronized the TV audio with the Sonos speakers. Now apparently I have to turn off the TV speakers before the Sonos takes over. Is there anyway to get the TV icon back on the Sonos app under the music note?
I replaced my 1st gen. Sonos Beam with a Sonos Arc. I've read online and forum posts that suggest the Beam can be used as a "speaker," but those provided scant "how to" details. I have Sonos products throughout my home and do not need another TV “soundbar.”Can someone please point me to a resource/link/thread that will explain how I can convert the Beam "soundbar" into a simple speaker that's NOT connected/associated/affiliated to/with a television set? I’m assuming I can do the set up using the Ethernet port, and, using the App, can then assign the Beam it to any room?It would also be interesting to hear what other applications users have found for their retired Beams--besides.selling them--additional speaker for existing set up? Independent speaker in another room? Cordially,Bill
Quick question To start, I am not overly technical. I’ve never had problems with the Sonos products or app or speakers in 10 years! BUT Since upgrading to the Australian NBN high speed internet I am experiencing constant drop outs / lag in sound and control on a iPhone 13, along with the speakers all the time. Reinstalling the app works 90% of the time, but I have to do it a couple of times a week. • I have 260 mbps average wifi speed• I like to play 8 grouped speakers at once (usually)• Have tried wired and WiFi networks, same problem either way ( and changing channels) What am I missing?
I’m looking for a recommendation on a universal speaker floor stand that can accommodate a Sonos One, I’m not a fan of the stands made specifically for Sonos One as I guess I won’t be able to use those stands for anything else in the future if I ever change to a different set of speakers.
