I had to change isp so took the opportunity to upgrade my wifi and bought Google Nest. I've spent all day trying to get my Sonos to connect and it simply does not want to work. I have 2x play5 and 2x play 1 and 2x ikea bookends I've plugged the 5s in to the Nest directly using ethernet and reset them, as have done with play1s. Nothing is working, the app may or may not connect, the speakers may or may not show, music do want show what's playing. It's a nightmare. What can be done here please? Many thanks
I'm experiencing a strange issue on a larger sonos s2 system (10 speakers). Every other day or so, I can no longer connect to any music services or connect to the update servers. It just says it "cannot connect". I can see all my speakers just fine.Weird thing is, whatever playlist i was playing before I can press play and it will play normally because it has some type of connection. The situation usually rights itself after a few hours, or I can usually fix it by restarting the router and at least one sonos speaker. And I've never had any audio drop outs.I have tried plugging in to the router and using SonosNet, I've tried configuring wifi, I've tried changing channels - same weird behavior. I'm using an eero pro (single, no mesh) and it is working just fine for all my other devices.I submitted a diagnostic at 1718527646 with my current wifi configuration.
Hello!I purchased an LGOLED55CXPUA about a month ago. On set up I was able to configure the magic remote to control my Sonos playbar using the volume using the Device Control settings. The mute button would not work but the + & - for volume did which was all I needed.As of yesterday magic remote no longer controls the volume of the playbar. I saw this topic https://en.community.sonos.com/home-theater-228993/lg-oled55cx-magic-remote-not-working-with-playbar-6843515 which describes my situation perfectly & see that this was resolved with LGs software update (03.10.20). My TV is running 03.11.10When I contacted LG they just sent me a reply telling me about how great LG soundbars are! Points for chutzpah if nothing else…Any help from you good people would be greatly appreciated!
I have when 1 sonos speaker and have updated to the sonos 2 app which I understand is compatible. However although I've linked google to sonos I'm unable to link my spotify premium account. When I instruct Google to play 'x' music from spotify it tries to find it but then I receive a response which says 'you need to link your spotify premium account to Google and sonos. I've done that but not getting anywhere. Can anyone help?Regards
Hi,I have two One SL that used to be paired as stereo and everything was working just fine.I recently decided to separate them to have them in two rooms independently, and since then they both work as if they were on the left (or right, I don’t know) channel of stereo, instead of being mono.I tried resetting both of them but I get the same result.And they work perfectly in stereo when I recreate the stereo.Any advice ?Thanks
Have the S2 controller successfully set up on a Win10 machine and a few iPhones. However, when attempting to set up on a new iPad, there is one Play:1 missing and it will not load the music library.I’ve tried every hint currently published on this community, so it’s clearly a new issue ???Any hints…..?
Trying to set up my first Sonos, a Five, through my recent iPad running iPadOS 14. It sees my WiFI network, and the green/white light flashes. But there’s no response to the button press when it chimes.I have tried disconnecting/reconnecting power, rebooting the router, moving the speaker very close to the router, and connecting with Ethernet. Nothing helps. It seems as though the button isn’t working.
I have a Sonos Sound bar and 4 x play5 speakers.I have a Orbi WiFi routerI have a Cat 6 to a HDMI extender to the TVSony TV I already swapped out the cable box and the extenders and the HDMI cables. My installer thinks it could be a bad Cat 6 wire. Any other suggestions?
I have only recently started acquiring Sonos products, initially I just wanted a Bluetooth speaker, now a small fortune later I now have a pair of moves set up in stereo mode, and a home theatre consisting of a 55” Sony Bravia A*, an Arc Soundbar, two One’s and a Sub.Initially everything was easy to set up, but yesterday I had a nightmare trying to add the Sub, I managed it after a while and then started to notice the sound dropping out for a split second every 20 seconds or so which is not what you want really! Anyway I’m pleased to say that it’s now been resolved, all I did was reset my TiVo box.Hopefully this will help others who are experiencing the same problem.Graham
Hello,I’ve been experiencing loss of connections when streaming Spotify and radio (either TuneIn or Sonos Radio) and error messages such as “unable to play [ ] - song is not encoded correctly” since basically day 1. it seems to come and go but lately frustration grew bigger as it reached a point where the speakers are more unable to work than do. Diagnosis number 384398090
This is really frustrating and I think has only been an issue since we upgraded to the new S2 app and removed the Bridge. We have a Netgear Orbi Mesh WiFi set up a Playbar, Play 1 and Play 3 across the flat. Have tried the following:reset routerreset all Sonos speakersremoved and added the Spotify appchanged the router channel from auto to 1, then 6 then 11Playing from the Spotify app to Sonos is also patchy All other services on the Sonos app work perfectly. Is this a common problem?diagnostic 2106635247
I have several Sonos 1 Gen 2 throughout my apartment. All of them work fine except one. The sound is very tinny—no bass, sounds like it’s half volume or something. I’ve tried Airplay and other WiFi sound but it’s the same. I’ve reset the speaker. No change. What’s up? Bad speaker??

I have a One SL speaker that stopped working with the Airplay on my iphone. The speaker was paired with a One speakerand I had been listening to Youtube with them for about two months. A couple of weeks ago the SL started cutting outand the Youtube app would stop playing all together. This issue also occurs when listening to the music downloaded on my phone, again using airplay. Although if I listen to SirusXM through the Sonos app it works fine. Troubleshooting; I uninstalled Youtube and reinstalled.Also reset the SL to default setting and reinstalled. I removed the paired connection of the two speakers.The One plays fine with YoutubeThe SL will not connect to Youtube at all. I also have a full Sonos surround system in my living room.I can play Youtube on it fine with my iphone from the bedroom.It's not a connectivity issue. Do you have any more suggestions? I bought this speaker at Christmas last year.Is it possible that it has developed a defect? Brent
I would be so grateful if anyone can help with this. I can’t be the only person who has experienced it but I can’t find any documentation or discussion on it. I have eight Sonos speakers in a pretty small house. My Wifi is excellent near all of them. Quite often, speakers disappear from the network. I have to unplug them and plug them back in again or sometimes hard reset them to get them back on. I can usually get them back but it’s random and it can take a lot of tries. But here’s the weird thing. Every once in a while, I will open the Sonos app on my phone and it’s showing only the speakers that I thought were missing! In other words, they don’t just fall offline. They disappear to some mysterious other network. (I don’t have any other Wifi network in my home. This is all on the same network.) My phone app (and always my laptop app) usually shows the “primary network” but every once in a while reveals the “other network.” That doesn’t help me. Ultimately I still need to get my phone
Been having on and off problems with audio stuttering between 2 different Samsung TV’s, 1 HDMI Splitter and 2 different optical cables.Nothing seems to fix it, I can only assume there is something wrong with the Playbar, which for something of this value to start deteriorating after a couple of years seems absurd.Submitted diagnostics ‘1678552655’.Any help would be appreciated.Thanks,steve
My home network uses a Netgear GS724Tv4 managed switch.My Sonos gear comprises:Connect: Bedroom, Series ID: C100, WM: 0.

But in my garden shed (connected via a 50m ethernet cable to the managed switch) I also have 2 Sonos 5’s (wired daisy chain).I seem to be suffering data storms as the 5’s keep disappearing.

This is my first Sonos system. Arc, Sub and 2 SLs setup as a soround system in my tv room. So far I really like the system, however I am getting a random chime tone coming out the speakers that I cannot identify. It is like a system notification. It is becoming very annoying. No lights or anything else just the chime. Any ideas or suggestions on what this might be? Thanks.
I am using Sonos Boost to connect my Sonos speakers. The Boost is hardwired to the wifi router. I want to replace my AC1200 router with a Netgear Orbi AC3000 mesh router to get better wifi connectivity throughout the house. But I’m reading a lot about incompatibility issues. Before I buy the Orbi, I want to make sure I won’t have the same problems I used to have when I used a wifi extender (got rid of it due to the issues). If I connect the Boost to the ethernet port on the Orbi, will I still need to mess with manual configuration?Is there another wifi mesh router that Sonos recommends?
I have a pair of sonos five and iphone xs. Both are updated to the latest version. My problem is that sonos occasionally disappears from air play.
