I just realized that some time in the recent past the rooms/speakers starting switching their position in the Rooms view if you select or deselect them. It seems to me that it wants to keep the selected speakers at the top and the deselected ones at the bottom, but that is terrible behaviour. If I want to transfer from one room to another now the list gets jumbled several times, and I alwas have to rescan the list and see where the item is I am looking for.If you absolutely must have the selected one at the top, do it only after opening the view, so that the order is kept while the screen is open, and if I close it and reopen it it gets build anew, but like this is is simply confusing. For a minute I thought I was in the Spotify app, that’s how bad it was ;)
I’ll be setting up my WD My Cloud PR2100 this weekend. I’ve transfered all my files from my old-n-slow Mac to an external hard drive. I have a new laptop that I’ll be setting up this weekend. So my question is after I set up the Nas will I be able to transfer my music & photos over to Nas using the external hard drive? Or do I need to transfer them from ex hard drive to laptop first? And how does Plex come into play with the transfer?
Please add the capability for the Sonos apps to sort one’s Music Library leveraging the Sort metadata fields on a given release. For example, in Apple Music/iTunes, one can choose how their Library is sorted based on alternative text in the sort as fields, as below:Note: by changing the album field’s “sort as” text from the album title to the convention: Artist - Year-Month-Day - Title, I am able to then organize and search through my entire Library of albums by a given artist, and then the albums ordered chronologically, thereafter.Another use case is an album series, named as “Volume #” and there are 16 albums in the series. The Sonos app does not sort on numbers, smartly - meaning, it doesn’t recognize that 2, 3, 4 come before 10, 11, 12, because it’s only looking at the first integer. Instead it orders as follows:Volume 1 Volume 10 Volume 11 Volume 12 Volume 13 Volume 14 Volume 15 Volume 16 Volume 2 Volume 3 Volume 4 Volume 5 Volume 6 Volume 7 Volume 8 Volume 9My only workaround
The transfer from Google Play Music to You Tube Music has been pretty unsatisfactory, particularly as far as user’s own uploaded libraries are concerned. Until a few days ago under Library/Albums just a few albums used to show up under the Uploads heading (in my case only as far as the A’s). Today, under Library/Albums, the Uploads tab seems to have disappeared completely which makes finding stuff very problematic.What is going on?
Hello @SONOS star team. I will compile, and edit to add over time, the things I noticed and would recommend for our collective reflection here. Please comment to contribute your ideas too, and I can add them to this OP so that it’s easier for the SONOS developers to have it all in one place.Special thanks and appreciation for Keith, whom I “met” on Reddit and guided I use iOS, latest of everything at all times: iPhone and SONOS App version. Allow manual/ user ranking/ rearranging in My Sonos > Edit (top right corner). Ditto in Browse for existing music services. Add a “tip” bubble to let people know about 3D Touch available throughout the App. I see use it in My Sonos to select Play in Another Room… the most. Add Alarms to the SONOS icon itself on the Home Screen when using ForceTouch/ 3D Touch (Currently: Search, My Sonos, Play - Resume Last Played). Detect WiFi issues and walk the user through fixing them to lighten the load on your Support Team, PR hit with people spewing c
Hi, in the current version setting up an alarm to play your song in playlist automatically puts it in a repeating loop. Also there is no option to stop the alarm automatically when the song finishes. I would like to request Sonos to make:1. repeat loop an option in alarm settings whether you want to repeat or not?2. Have an option to stop alarm when the song finishes, in addition to the current method to set a time limit. like the suggestion to make Sonos make the changes. Thanks
If I add a Boost to my (S1 SonosNet mesh) system that uses a Bridge: Will the Boost increase signal range so that my CR-200 won’t struggle to find the signal. If so, how do I use the Boost? Do I have my system “find” it and then I just plug it in midway between the Bridge and where I use the CR-200?Thanks in advance for your help.
My brother has an old Magnavox Grand Classic. I’m curious if there is a clever way to integrate this into the Sonos ecosystem. All I can come up with is tearing everything out of the inside and replacing with a One or maybe a Symfonisk. Is there a better way to integrate with more of the existing hardware?
I created a Sonos Playlist from some of my Amazon music last year. When I go to play it, it skips tracks and there is a pop-up saying my Amazon account isn't authorized. I reauthorize and play something else for a while. When I go back later, 10 or 15 minutes, same problem. So I do the whole routine until I give up. That is like 5 or more times. I've had enough. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.
I have been using Sonos Desktop to play my stereo enabled Roams since Alexa just keeps telling me to get the skill I already have :). Now I have a problem using Sonos desktop to search music. Nothing is coming up at all except for “my music” that’s on the PC - none of the subscription tracks are showing at all. I saw this in a few dated threads but never saw a solution. My Sonos S2 desktop app was recently updated a week or so ago. Just wondering if anyone else has this problem or has a solution. (And other services are fine on the desktop app, and I can see my amazon music subscription fine from my iphone)

March 2021) Can you please help.RegardsAlexander
WEYV showing as working fine on the Sonos Status page. Great! However, WEYV doesn’t appear to exist anymore, lol. No app in the app store, no plugin for Sonos, their web site is dead, no mention of them on the web since 2019. Good to know that Sonos shows them up and working, though!
Recently purchased a new Play5. During the set up I upgraded the controller to S2. Discovered that two Play 1’s in separate rooms have dropped off of the room tabs. Have reset them, turned of the controllers and turned off the router but they still don’t display. what is the solution to get them to present in the right place?
