After the last update my mac computer now shows alerts up in the top right of my screen like the low battery type of alert very time Sirius Radio goes to a commercial on, for example, Fox News. The alert box shows the information from the advertiser... which is both irritating and distracting. How can this be turned off?
Hi all Have just bought one of these Amazon Echo Dots and have heard that it can connect to sonos via the yonomi app. Anyway have connected Dot to yonomi okay, but for some reason when you go on to discovery to find sonos nothing comes up! Am I doing something wrong?? Hoping that it's just something that I'm not doing correctly. Please help!!!!! Thanks in advance
When you browse your collection and select an artist see albums sorted alphabetically. To me this would be far more logical for these to be sorted by release year (and then alphabetically). Failing making this the default perhaps adding an option of how to sort albums (orhttps://ask.sonos.com/sonos/topics/dynamic_library_views_user_defined_sorting)
Using the new beta version 7 when I try and play a song to a grouped set of sonos speakers that includes a speaker that has autoplay of line-in turned on, I'm initially able to connect to the speakers only if I choose the non-line-in connected speaker first. Then when I hit play (after seeing "connected") immediately It kicks me back to "Manage devices." If I try to connect to the autoplay speaker first then it won't connect at all. As soon as I remove autoplay from this speaker groups work fine. With the upcoming connectivity options with Amazon Echo and the dot, this will be a bigger issue. Actually, it's already an issue for me as I can't leave autoplay on for a sonos speaker connected to an echo dot for line-in needs and be able to group this speaker for playback of spotify through the spotify app. Hopefully this all makes sense. I submitted a diagnostic but not sure what else to do to provide feedback on this.
I just found that a random German TV Android app (ARD Mediathek) allows audio streaming to my Sonos. It has a logo that is similar to the Chromecast logo, but it includes not only Chromecast but also 'Sonos Media Renderer'. Clicking on that allows me to stream the sound from the app to my Sonos. This is actually pointless, as I can't stream to my Chromecast at the same time, so I get the picture on my phone and the sound on my Sonos. But there must be other apps where this function is useful. I messaged Sonos about this and they just confirmed 'yes, this is possible' but didn't seem willing to tell me which other apps do this. I suppose it's probably not the most complete Sonos experience so they don't promote it, but it is still pretty cool.
When my wife wants me to turn down the TV volume, it would be great to plug in earphones into phone and hear TV through SONOS App. Is this feature possible, and if so how do I do it? If not this would be a great update to future app. Thanks for a great product. Magnus
I really never learn, do I? I updated to the MacOS Sierra when it came out, and trouble comes. A few programs is not compatible and the most annoying is Tidal on Sonos - my main source for music. I can play radio fine and sometimes Tidal after disconnecting and connecting the wifi. Sometimes I can see the Favorites when clicking, sometimes not. But all the time when I try to add tracks or album to the queue the message is "not able to add track to the queue". I have searched and searched - but it seems like it only me that have this problem with the Sierra update? I FEEL ALL ALONE!!!! I am hoping for updates (Mac or Sonos) that will resolve the problem. Or maybe you guys have a solution? Set up is iMac with Airport extreme. Fast connection. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks Stein Stavanger, Norway
I use a Sonos at work and would like the alarm to turn the unit on for 8hrs, but the duration is only 2hrs max. So I have to set an alarm to turn it on and another to turn it off. It never works right. It would be easier if you could just increase the alarm duration to include up to 12 or more hrs.
I have two play ones set up in my office, Just think it would be nice to have an option to set the desktop as an audio source. Desktop audio via DLNA to the play ones as a built in option. Would greatly broaden the usability as then they could play the audio for movies, games, youtube, and well any audio on the desktop at all
I know this is a frequently asked question, so I'd just like to know if Sonos actually listen to their customers? I work in the music industry and have personally experienced the battles that go on with the company Sonos system. Staff turn down music, insert their tracks into a playlist to disrupt an album playback and sometimes disconnect speakers from a party. It's total chaos and frustrating as we need to have the flexibility of having the Sonos on our current network, so can't segment the Sonos system via WiFi to restrict it that way. What we'd ideally like is to have some form of advanced management feature on the Sonos to switch between allowing individual accounts or everyone. I really can't see how difficult it would be to code this kind of restriction, either by MAC address or a "superuser" password on each connected controller if the setting is enabled. It's been years now and it doesn't appear that Sonos are doing anything about "Song wars" at a party. I've even
Hi there, Since upgrading to 3.1 my cr200 has become unresponsive in certain parts of the scree. For example if i try and adjust the treble in the music equalisation screen I cant move the slider. If I try and slide up and down using the A-Z slider at the RHS of my music index it stutters at E and jumps to M. I have contacted Sonos who suggested that I reset the controller but to know avail. Any ideas? Frazer
