I’m not sure if this is Bandcamp-specific or if it’s just a coincidence that it happens while I’m playing albums from Bandcamp. With some frequency, I will reach the end of a song and then...silence. If I try the controls, the app tells me it can’t connect to the system. I look for speakers and suddenly it doesn’t recognize any, or it will see one or two of them (never in the room I’m actually using). I haven’t noticed it happening when I’ve played things through Apple Music or Amazon Music, but that may just be coincidental. It’s frustrating to have all the speakers disappear when my wifi is still connected! (My router is set to do auto updates, so the firmware is up to date.) Any ideas what’s going on?
Search in the app for an Album. This used to find albums in my collection or on Amazon or Spotify.Now with Spotify all I get is “Featured” songs and a link to open the Spotify app.Is there now way of playing whole albums from within the app any more?
I am out of patience as far as trying to play My Music from Windows using my Sonos S2 app. So in the meantime I connected an auxiliary cable from my laptop (windows) to Port. I guess I could have connected it to my Play Five instead. When I play the selected album/songs from iTunes (on my laptop) to Sonos speakers my S2 app shows its being played through Airplay. Is this correct? Isn’t it being played through the aux cable from laptop to Sonos? Reason why I’m using aux cable to play my music library is because when I select album/song using my S2 app I get a warning Unable to play ‘………..’ -access to //Mycloud2100/music denied.
So having owned a play 1 and play 3 for a few years yes they are normally powered off. However In preparation for a party and knowing that I previously setup a group to allow Spotify to play playlists, I come to find that groups appear to have disappeared from the sonos app.Anyone have any suggestions how to create this as I have read through various boards, but cannot see it.under products I have dining room as play1 and office as play 3. Getting them grouped to play Spotify should be simple enough
Hello everyone, after adding pandora to the Music Service, my iPhone get confused and it looks like Pandora app and the Sonos-2 app try to overwrite echoer. I can’t find a straight and consistent way to skip song, change volume, change sound specs form either app.So, what is the best way to play music and podcast apps: from the original app on the phone, or from within the Services & Voice inside the Sonos App?Should I delete the pandora on my iPhone and keep it only in the Sonos app, keep it in both in the phone and in the Sonos app, or delete the Pandora inside the Sonos app “Music and content” and just keep it on the iPhone only :?) I hope it make sense THX.System specs: iPhone 11 latest update, Sonos Amp updated firmware, Sonos App-2. THX again BTW is overcast app supported by Sonos “services & voice”?
Has anyone noticed a significant difference in battery life when using an Intel Evo laptop for streaming music to their Sonos speakers?
Hey there, fellow tech enthusiasts!I recently got my hands on an Intel Evo laptop, and I'm absolutely loving it so far. However, I've been primarily using it for streaming music to my Sonos speakers, and I can't help but wonder if anyone else has noticed a significant difference in battery life when doing the same.My old laptop used to handle this task quite well without draining the battery too quickly, but with the Evo, I've noticed some variations. It's still much better than my previous non-Evo laptops, but I'm curious about your experiences.Have any of you been using an Intel Evo laptop for streaming music to your Sonos speakers, and have you noticed any noticeable differences in battery life compared to other tasks or laptops you've used before?I'd love to hear your thoughts and experiences. It could be helpful for others considering an Intel Evo laptop for similar purposes or looking to optimize their setup.Looking forward to your insights and tips! Moderator note: This may be a

Good morning all. Last night I installed the first 2 of what I expect to be many Sonos components in our new place, a beam and sub. I've been browsing the forums and I am happy to see such an active group. I'm sure there will be many questions across time I will have for you all. I installed and set up the components and connected to my pandora account with no issues other than ones discussed here already. The room sounds great. I installed the app on my wife's phone and it immediately found the system and hooked up using my login credentials. Here's the question. She has her own pandora account and will want that running when I'm not around. Is the fix to this as simple as reinstalling the ap and having her create her own Sonos login to be able to set her own credentials to log into her pandora account or am I over thinking this?We will be quickly adding a couple of amps with outdoor speakers, another sound bar on a second TV and speakers in a rec room along with satellites for the
Hi, I have a frustrating issue with my Sonos playback when using youtube music for the last two weeks. tracks a skipping with various errors - encoding and lost connection to youtube music. I’ve looked at my 2.4ghz channels on my Ubiquiti UDM Pro and tried 1,6,11 to avoid possible interference. Are you able to review the report for me to assist me in trying to resolve this one please.

I was unable to find any mention of this in the forums, but my latest Sonos Mac controller (15.10) always shows ‘The queue is empty’ when playing music from my Music Library. The version on my iPad correctly lists all of the song titles in the queue. Not a major deal (I guess), but it prevents me from being able to clear the actual queue from the Mac controller. Is anybody else having this problem?
For the past 3+ months, I have been unable to add Telmore as a music service.I keep receiving this error:“FejlBeklager, vi oplever i øjeblikket problemer med adgangen til servicen.”Which translates to: "Error. Sorry, we are currently experiencing problems with access to the service." I have attempted to update the Sonos App and even uninstalled/reinstalled it, but it dod not solve the issue.What should I do?"
We have a very temperamental internet connection at home, which means that when we are trying to play music at a designated time (using the Alarm feature), we can’t get any music and just get the Sonos chime.Is there a way to download Spotify (or Apple Music) songs to a network hard drive or iMac and use that as a music server that plays over Sonos?
Hi,My current library is on a synology NAS.Somethimes i recieve rerror messages that the song / file is not found anymore.also i noticed that some added songs don’t show up in the sonos library. When i check the size of the music folder on the nas it has: 42.442 files.So this should be below the sonos limitation of 65.000 tracks. Alternative, what solutions are there to add a 2nd library to exceed the 65,000 track limit? in the past i tried setting up the Plex media server on the nas but that didn’t worked wel for me in DSM 6,x.. maybe it’s now better with DSM 7,x ?
