Hi Sonos,

Hope all is well! I currently have:

Play Fives x4
Sonos Sub x1
Sonos  Bridge x1 

I sometimes use the line in function and recently have been using one of my play 5’s for line in audio from my LG monitor line out jack. This has been working fine with no issues at all. 

Recently I powered the monitor on and the line in option activated as normal but has a static hissing noise And not sure why....?? I tried a different play 5 but had the same results .. static. Maybe this is bc of an update .. ??

Please help .

Thx Phillip Abii
