I recently installed the ASUS mesh system.I have 3 Sonos devices all connected via Wifi.When I try to play all 3 devices together I get an error message saying that one device is trying to access a range extender and needs to be connected via ethernet.If I keep starting and stopping devices I can get it all running eventually.I don’t have a range extender since installing the mesh system. When I did have a range extender I had no problems.Any ideas?
Hi folks,New Sonos user here, and have to say I am heartbroken. Last night, took my brand new amp out of the box, connected it using speaker wire to my Audioengine HDP6 speakers with 14/2 speaker wire (in box banana plugs for the amp and binding posts for the speakers), and HDMI cable to a Samsung TV and within a few minutes of playing music/ TV (time was variable) sound cut out and the orange / white flashing light appeared. Went through troubleshooting with each speaker, error / same lights continued, and again, with no speakers attached, same flashing lights happened again. Moved the amp to a different location, and it seemed to work just fine for ~2 hours via the TV, went to bed, thinking I had solved the mysterious problem. This morning, tried to play some tunes, and the orange/white light appeared again.I am stumped as to what could be causing this, other than an internal amp error (per help articles). Solution is to contact customer service but I work a pretty demanding job duri
I lost my sound with the beam which was plugged into my Samsung tv; when I clicked onto see if the sound was working it showed voice was coming through. I changed my beam from the living room; same thing happened then replaced the second beam hdmi and it worked. Why would the beam hdmi fail as only had the beam for 3months. Can I use any hdmi cable for the arc function to work as at the moment only have one of my sonos systems connected
I have recenlty changed my router, but got a problem with one one of my Sonos One Gen1, the other one works fine, only this one can not be connect to WIFI, tested with old router( VirginMedia’s one), it works fine. I have done some research online, already turned off at 2.4G and 5GWireless menu >> Professional Tab >> Airtime Fairness.also Beamforming are disabled It seem the error message “the password is incorrect” has changed to can not connect to this wifi.Is anyone who can fix this issue? thx
I have 5 access points that are all connected to the same 8 port POE switch.The POE switch is NOT connected to the router or network and the wireless function on the router is disabled. The access points are somehow connecting to the LAN and finding the router gateway and internet and are they working...and they shouldn’t be! One of the AP’s has a sonos plugged into it’s extra LAN port. If I unplug it, the wireless network goes down. It seems that the AP’s are using the SONOS wireless network and finding the LAN router through one of the wired SONOS in the house. We have 13 Sonos devices in the house, about half are connected to the LAN.1st question, is this possible...is my guess correct?2nd question, how do I shut it down? I discovered it because of network problems and latency.
Hello all, I just bought a Sonos One for the kitchen and we have a Beam for the living room. The One is connected via Wifi, the Beam via ethernet cable. For some reason my Sonos Ons disconnects a few times a day and I need to reconnect it. Sometimes even create a room etc. Some more information: In the kitchen we have a router and in the living room there is another one which acts as an access point. I am only using the 2.4ghz network. I have submitted a diagnostics report:1529903601. I hope someone can tell me what is wrong. Thanks and kind regards, Jim
I recently added my SiriusXM subscription to my Sonos configuration. When I try to listen to any SiriusXM channel, after attempting to connect, I receive the error message "the song is not encoded correctly". Sonos setup includes: Play:5 (original) - Ethernet Connect - Ethernet 2 x Play:5 (new model) in stereo pair - wireless 2 x Sonos One SL in stereo pair - wireless Sonos Amp - Ethernet Play:3 - wireless I *can* get SiriusXM channels to play reliably on the Sonos One SL pair but not on any other Sonos devices, neither the newer generation Play:5 and Amp nor the older products (original Play:5 or Connect - haven’t tested the Play:3). Ethernet connections are Gb, Internet is Comcast with 170 Mbps down, 12 Mbps up. No problems with other services (local music library, TuneIn, & Amazon Music) Can you please help me get SiriusXM working? Thanks
Why does my Sonos move not work anymore, this worked for most of the last year then in the recent weeks it has been spotey and reset a few times, now it will not connect over wifi or allow bluetooth connections. Honestly this is a nice product but way too much trouble for the money as I have wasted hours with setup over and over again this year and now it does not stay connected at all
After upgrade I am not able to play Apple music neither on ipad or iphone...I get two errors; 1. An error occured when adding song to que (1002) and 2. Could not play `songname` - connection to Apple music was lost. I deleted the apple account and readded, same problem. Any ideas?
About a week ago, I think with the last update when ever windows pops up a notification the Sonos Windows app stops playing and I have to go into the PC app and right click the song and select play song, simply clicking play will not work even if the queue is full. Now I have two rooms setup one room (PC) is with a play bar, 2x sonos1, and a sub which the bar is wired to the router and is the primary output for the PC. The other room is just one play bar. If both rooms are playing at the same time “party mode” only the one set for the PC stops play. No problems if I am streaming audio from any other source on the PC. Similar problem with my Android phone. Music stops with notifications but I don’t exactly when it happens.
I’ve had my Sonos Arc for ~4 weeks and have a recurring problem. About 30% of the time that I turn the ARC with TV as source, the sound on the ARC will go on for about a second, and then off for about 3 seconds. It’s not garbled, it’s just on then off. I’ve never had this happen from another source. If I switch sources - e.g. Pandora or Spotify - the sound is fine. If I switch back to the TV the problem is still there. I can fix this by unplugging either the power or the HDMI into the ARC and then plugging it back in. This fixes the ARC for 1-3 days.
Hi all,I am a lucky owner of playbase and 2 x play1s - working fine for 2 years with playbase wired, play 1s wifi connected.Today after upgrading to S2 on my iphone x I got message the play1s needs to be reconnected.Did not work out the regular way so I decide to factory setting the system starting with playbase.Unplugged and re plugged with holding the join button till green flashing light but cannot find the playbase in the S2 app (I tried wifi an wired - neidther worked).I can find play1s on the app but not the playbase anymore.Can anyone help / suggest what to try?
Sonos just stopped working. I have been using my PC ( windows 10 ) to feed Pandora into a Sonos Bridge ( hard wired to my cable router ) - which sends the signal to my Sonos Connect Amp.The existing Sonos items are years and years old. What can I do to fix this? The sonos program keeps trying to get me to download an app to my phone. I want to continue to operate Sonos from my home PC.
I recently moved into a university dormitory, and although the WiFi is a public network, they have a system whereby a seperate private link network is used to connect wireless printers and such to your account on the network. This had worked perfectly and the Sonos connected and operated as designed for 3-4 weeks until recently ( possibly coinciding with the new app update), I was unable to connect to my sonos. In an attempt to troubleshoot this I tried to reconnect my Sonos to the system in the same way I had before except now I receive an “unexpected error” consistently every time my Sonos attempts to connect to the private network. It should be stressed that this is not an error on the Network’s side, as it had worked flawlessly before. I am unable to use any kind of ethernet connection, and when I tried to set up the Sonos through its own WiFi setup, i was greeted with another similar error at the point of finalisation. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I want to be able to create playlists of music which is stored on my Motorola (Moto g8 Plus) phone. Ideally I would like to import and play iTunes playlists I have already created on my laptop. 9 months ago someone called Bob95... had exactly the same issue and had a conversation with John B on this forum. The solution for Bob, recommended by John, was to install Samsung Music. This worked for him but will not work for me as this app is incompatible with my phone. What's the solution for non Samsung users- or more specifically for Moto g8 Plus users? I've tried a few music apps- unsuccessfuly.Cheers
So we have two Sonos speakers we can use to play radio, and some spotify and thats it. I have a LARGE collection of CD’s with unique tracks that i have saved on my computer as MP3. Spotify plays them beautiful everywhere EXCEPT on Sonos. Sonos makes them unavailable and this makes Sonos worthless to us. If Sonos had an AUX cable input, then at least i could use that, but the sonos app wont play my music. Has Sonos fixed this on newer generation speakers? Because we have now “legacy” speakers which are now unsellable and dont have an AUX input, its a ridiculous system that we regret ever buying, and we are preventing our large network from doing so because its worthless. Anyone knows if the newer models support playing music you own that has not been bought to streaming services? 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 stereo paired Sonos one - since January 2018. Suddenly the left speaker stopped playing, I have tryout setting them up as new pair of speakers, but the left one only works with a network kabel and not as wifi ( and it is the right wifi network ) could it be the build in wifi in the speaker that is dead
I just moved home and had to re-setup my Sonos in the new place. It was pretty much flawless in the old house, but now we’re set up in the new place we’re getting very strange dropouts when running multi-room audio. One thing we like to do is watch TV while cooking - the 5.1 system is in the same large room as the kitchen (i.e. combined kitchen/family room) but the stove is at the other end and is difficult to hear the TV from there. I have a Sonos One for kitchen music and so will pipe TV audio to that speaker so we can hear the TV even better. I don’t recall any major issues with this at the old house, but at the new house it drops out constantly. It’s a large room but definitely not bigger than the old house. I talked with Sonos support (case 02208995), they advised me changing my 2.4ghz channel to 1 would solve it but it is still happening. I use a Netgear Orbi for networking. Not sure how Sonos does multiroom audio but my wi-fi is plenty strong/fast enough, but the satellit
I have new router.The Sonos apps on my iphone and ipad have found my Sonos system, but the controller on my (Windows 10) PC can’t find it.I’ve tried every option on the support pages, but nothing works. I get to the stage where the light on a unit flashes orange but the nothing happens. I’ve tried this with each unit in turn – the Play:3 the Play:5 and both Connects. I’ve also tried rebooting them all and rebooting the router.Any suggestions?
Suddenly we unable to play some of our music which we have ripped into iTunes and uploaded to Apple Music. On our phones, although it’s greyed out it will play but those songs won’t play on Sonos? Those songs are also greyed out on Sonos but won’t play. Do you have advice you can offer, many thanks.
