I am having trouble searching songs using Deezer through the SONOS S1 app. This happens in either the mobile or PC apps. Other services like Spotify seem to be working fine.Search with other services like Spotify seems to be working fine I installed the service, have all my playlists and can browse all my songs.Can browse in deezer. It looks ok and works However, when I try to search for a specific artist or song I get a message saying “there was a problem searching, please try again”When searching in deezer I get an error message Any one is having the same problem?I already tried resetting the controller, changing the country in both the SONOS and deezer accounts. Sometimes after I change the country, the search service works but for a short period of time. Thanks in advance
I am using S1 system, with a number of S1 only products. I am getting a message ‘Unable to connect to music library’. The music library is stored on a networked PC. I have configured the PC for sharing, including the firewall. The fiilename is correct. I thought I would try to remove the library and reinstall it, but the Sonos S1 controller app won’t let me do that without updating the software, which I presume would then update it to S2 and I wouldn’t then be able to use my system. Can someone help? Thanks.
I know that this has probably been covered off on here many times but I struggle to find the answer. I have created playlists within the Sonos app by adding favourite tracks from Apple Music. For months everything is fine and now many of the tracks are not able to be played. There are a number of different messages including “no longer available”, “cannot be found” etc. The artwork has disappeared beside each of these tracks. Don’t ant to have to add them all again. Am i missing something??
Hi AllBackstory once a very happy google play member with my own music playlists and selections uploaded to Google. Where Sonos and Google play and my Sony Bravia were all compatible happy days… Then we were forced to migrate into YouTube music which was as bad as could be expected and wouldn't playback through the Bravia or even see any of my music.So it finally looks like they have fixed that so we are halfway back to where we were last year…So the Sonos app doesn't want to play my albums or playlists anyone out there use the Sonos App and YTM (I could do with some pointers on the commands to play the Music you have uploaded in to YouTube cloud..) Any thoughts.CheersPaul
Typically my morning alarm has me waking up to CBC Radio One Vancouver, but since Monday morning I’ve been waking up to the Sonos chime which historically meant a problem on my local network but if you drill down into the CBC service within the Sonos app, none of the selections under CBC Radio One are currently available. The CBC Music On Air (CBC Radio 2) remain available. I’ve tried removing and re-adding this integration but to no avail. Does anyone know where to go to have this looked into? I don’t know who is responsible for this integration, Sonos or CBC? I’m assuming CBC made a change to their feeds for Radio One that hasn’t been updated within the Sonos integration. The specific radio station is still available via TuneIn which is my workaround for now.
I have added the CBC app into my Sonos app and until now have been able to listen to stations from across Canada. Last week Radio 2 stations disappeared and now all stations have disappeared. I can still use the streaming services, but I want to be able to listen to talk radio and news. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the Sonos app and still nothing. Everything is functioning fine in my CBC app. Does anyone know how to fix this? I'm becoming increasingly annoyed by Sonos. I've already had to get a new phone because suddenly my android system was too outdated with the new update in January, and now I can't easily play my favourite stations. At this rate I'm going to have the most expensive paperweights soon. If it can't add stations, there should be a way of connecting whatever I have on my phone to the speakers- even if it's an aux cord.
I have music stored on my sd card on android phone and when playing through the sonos one in my kitchen always stops after 1 track, won't play an album continuously, no problems with Spotify or music services, just my old albums I have stored which aren't available online, has anybody had this problem and know any fixes, thank you
Why are there so many things that don’t work when using the YouTube Music connection within the Sonos app that work fine in the YouTube Music app itself? Every time I ask Sonos they say, “Google hasn’t provided the tools for us to implement that yet” and every time I ask Google they say, “You’ll need to ask Sonos about that”. Even stuff that appears to work on the surface doesn’t work right. I’ve been noticing that when I go to “My Supermix” on YTM within the Sonos app that it keeps playing a lot of the same songs and the songs it does play are mostly from the same genre (jazz, country, rock, etc….depending on what I last listened to). I just figured this was YTM’s crappy algorithm but then I started listening to that same “My Supermix” directly from the YTM app and low and behold...it actual had a decent mix of genre’s and songs that I’ve liked mixed with new songs. What is going on Sonos????
I run into this error every time I try to browse Apple Music through the S2 app. Weirdly it only occurs in the Albums and Artists tabs - “We’ve run into a problem. Try Again.” Have restarted router, updated and restarted Sonos, reset app, reauth’ed Apple Music. I have a beam which is wired in and Sonos net for two ones as surrounds. Anyone else have this issue?
I'm at my wits end here. For some reason my Sonos controller can no longer find my NAS, where all my music is stored. Going through the process of opening 'music library settings’, click on 'add’ with opens up a window with 3 options, the 3rd being one called 'networked device (ex NAS drive)’ Once I click this option another window opens to type the path to the networked shared. Listed here are a couple of examples such as ; \\myNetworkedStorage\Shared\Music.As I can't figure out what the exact path is I click on the 'browse’ button. This opens a window to 'browse for folders’ I then click on 'Network’ which has a drop down with my NAS but when I click this it opens a window ’Window cannot access \\NAS21A3A6’ with an error code 0x80070035 and a 'diagnose’ button which, when clicked, comes up ‘couldn't identify the problem’. I feel I need to find what that 'music’ path is I need to type in to direct Sonos to.
Hi After tuning into Spotify on the Beam and linked speakers the Beam failed to reconnect to the tv through the ARC cable connection. The Beam still connects to the Sonos app for music and radio services but no the tv. The message I keep getting is that no ARC conncetion deteced. I have tried all sugestions for reconnection from the chat forum. Any final solutions please?
I have the following setup:Arc One 2 x One SL (paired in surround with the Arc) SYMFONISKAll running S2 v12.2.2My router is a Unifi UDM PRO running v1.8.6 firmware. I have two Unifi AC-HD access points running firmware 4.3.2811361.All five speakers have DHCP reservations from the router. I’m running a 24-bit subnet with no VLANs.The Arc is wired (WM: 0), but all the other speakers are wireless (WM: 1).When I use the Sonos app to play a Spotify track, everything is fine playing to the Arc or the One. If I try to play to the SYMFONISK, it fails with the message “Spotify - Unable to play (track) - the connection to Spotify was lost” and skips to the next track which also fails with that message, and so on until the end of the playlist.If I try from the Spotify app to connect to the SYMFONISK, it fails to connect without any error message.I have rebooted the router, changed the DHCP reservations, power cycled the speakers and factory reset some of them but I still have the same issue.Thi
Wondering if anyone else has seen this... Trying to listen to "A history of the world in 100 objects" podcast from BBC. Sonos allows me to select the podcast, but although it lists 100 episodes, there are many missing, & others duplicated. If I look at the same podcast in BBC Sounds, Spotify or PocketCast apps they are all correctly shown. Unfortunately I can't use any of those apps to play through Sonos. Any help appreciated.
Hi I have Win 10 and have installed the S2 app. I have configured my Firewall as per the guide, my music folder is shared. When I try to add the music folder to the library I get this error: I have searched the forum but unable to find the answer. I have even turned off the firewall completely but still get the error, can anyone advise please? Thanks in advance, Rik.
I’ve recently does some major edits and updates to my iTunes media library. I disconnected the link between Sonos and the media library with the intent of reconnecting and doing a fresh download of the updated media library. When I attempt to establish to link between the Windows 10 PC and the Sonos controller app, the error message says the PC is not responding.I am certain the path to the computer on the network is correct. The username I enter is what shows up on the PC screen when I power up the computer. The password I enter is the one I use to log into Windows. The media library is set up in iTunes to be shared. I tried to establish the link with the virus protection disabled as well as turned on.Any ideas for establishing the connection?Thanks in advance.
Hi everyone,I sold my Play5 a while ago, and it was reset twice, but somehow is still connected to my Spotify account. I am constantly fighting for control over my account with some stranger. Judging by this person's musical taste, it appears appears be a teenage girl! One moment I'm chilling to some Elbow, when the next, I'm being ear raped by Witney Houston!As stated, the Play5 has been reset, and i have also forced logout of all devices in my Spotify account, and I have changed my Spotify password. Unfortunately this hasn't helped. What is also interesting is that when this other person plays Spotify, it shows up as the name that I gave to my old Play5 speaker "Kitchen"; could be a coincidence, but I somehow doubt it.Is there some way that you can break this connection in the Sonos 'back end' systems? ThanksJames
I have searched the various posts gogin back to 2017. Current SONOS app is unable to connect to True NAS.Steps taken to remove the problemSet up dedicated user on TrueNas for sonos enabled SMB1 CIF server on WIndows 10 Removed SMB2/3 on freeNas (and then reinstated) Given full permissions on the mount pint (Plex) via True NAS ACLSteps I will not be takingReinstalling windows Creating a “sonos” user on windowsIf anyone has experienced similar issues and has a working solution based on the facts above I would be glad to hear it. Please do not ask a plethroa of “fact finding” questions about other services /users connecting to the TrueNAs mount point /datapool - they can. This is a SONOS specific issue which the tech guys consider is beneath their attention.
