I recently acquired a Playbar and have added it to my Sonos setup (1x Move, 2x Symfonisk bookshelves, 1x Symfonisk lamp)
After installation I noticed that its sound was often cutting out when listening to music streamed over the WiFi (whether from my router or in a wired network).
After several hours of problem-solving I realized this is happening only when the optical cable is plugged in at both ends (source + Playbar) - even if no data should be flowing in the cable (the source is off).
If I unplug the optical cable at the source end and leave it plugged in the Playbar, the sound is never cut.
“TV Autoplay” is disabled in the App.
Cuts come randomly (so far at intervals ranging from 40s to 4 mins) and always last about 11 seconds before music resumes. No other Sonos product is interrupted.
This is pretty annoying. I wouldn’t like to have to unplug/plug the optical cable each time I switch the audio source. And even if the source were sending data through the optical cable, I should be able to keep on playing what’s streaming from Spotify over the network without interruption…
Any idea what’s going there and how to fix it? Thanks
EDIT: This seems to be a similar issue to the one reported in the thread below. However my source is a Pioneer DJM-900NXS mixer, not a Sony TV…
