I have 2 sonos systems;  one S1 and one S2. I would like to copy playlists etc from one to the other.

Hi @User279803 

Thanks for your post!

To be honest, I’m surprised you haven’t yet heard from community member @controlav  - they wrote a third-party app that I believe allows you to do exactly that.

I think you will soon.

Thanks @Corry P . My iOS app can do that, see my profile for details.

Unfortunately, I have no iOS devices.

I think it is pretty poor form from Sonos that they don’t provide a way to do this. I too have an existing S1 system and now run a S2 system with a Roam SL along side it.

You may find various ways to achieve this already, if you search via a search engine online. Some sites and 3rd party apps seem to allow you to export/import the playlists as .txt or .xml files. So probably no point Sonos reinventing the same wheel.

Sonos should have invented this wheel in the first place. The fact their upgrade process copies across the playlists shows they have the tools to do it.

In my own use-case, I tend to save my own playlists to my main MSP native App and that makes them available (and always in sync) across both S1 and S2 Apps.

Local playlists are stored on my NAS (.m3u format with straightforward UNC paths direct to each of the chosen local music library tracks, as a single ‘one-line’ entry, which seems to work best). I strip out all the m3u header/extensions from the file too.
