I’ve got a samba share with tons of different music organized by directory.For some reason some directories can not play. If I try to play any song any any one of these directories it just skips to the next song. Eventually It will produce an error after trying 10 or so songs and say something like “Unable to play ‘blah’ - network connection speed insufficient to maintain playback buffer’I don’t believe this is a network performance issue. Everything is wired via ethernet and shared locally and it ONLY affects certain folders. I’ve read endless samba logs and can’t discern anything. I’ve tried copying different directories around, removing files, changing permissions, everything I can think of. No matter what ‘Chillstep Radio’ directory plays fine, but ‘Dubstep Radio’ directory won’t play at all, for example.So I’ve run endless experiments creating new directories with different names and only putting a few files in them, reindexing and trying again. Sometimes a directory will play, an
Have library on WD NAS drive. Sonos can nonlonger find it. I've rebooted drivecand router several times, no joy. I have deleted then readded the library in the app. I have then trued deletting and replacing the library by putting it on a usb. This partially indexes but not fully. Any ideas for next steps? Sinos streams fine and plays from.phone as usual.
This has to be one of the most disappointing piece of electronic I have ever purchased. My Sonos S1 will not connect to iphone 11 after ios 14.1 update. I have tried all recommendations but nothing seems to work. Sonos youtube app (which was below average in performance anyway) isn’t functioning either.
Anyone else experiencing the “Unable to play the selected item” message when trying to play anything on SiriusXM today? My system has been very inconsistent since introducing the Arc a month ago, and I’ve experienced this kind of error in that time, but usually, I could just switch to Spotify and then switch back to Sirius and for the most part that would work. Today, that doesn’t work. I can play Spotify and TuneIn. Can’t play Amazon music.I’ve also tried to play on just a single old one speaker and it’s the same issue. Also, rebooted the phone.I’m not sure if it’s tied to the Arc or not, but I can say, I haven’t been pleased with the system since I added it.Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
I’m getting Sirius XM errors tonight trying to access it with S2 on an iPad Air. I do not have any issues accessing Sirius through web player or the Sirius app. The status page at Sonos say that Sirius is up, but I find that had to believe. I’ve reset the controller software and reconnected it to the system with no change in Sirius accessibility. other services play, like Spotify. The above image shows screen behavior when trying to access Sirius on the app. Diagnostic. 1109363835
I have an iTunes/Music library that is stored on an external drive. Running Catalina, up to date (10.15.7). Running Sonos macOS app, up to date (12.1). I try to add the library using the recommendation here but, while the internal drive albums are appearing, none of the external albums appear. I’ve tried closing Music removing the libraries from the Sonos app in various ways with no luck on getting the external albums to appear. There are only around 3k files in there, organized by Artist, as per Music’s scheme. Thanks.
When cycling through my Sonos Favourites (some of which are Playlists) using the Lutron Pico, the playlists stack together. If I cycle through 3 playlists, they all just get stacked together, and if I have Shuffle on (which I do) I just get a mishmash of the 3 playlists. Is there a way to get the playlist to clear when a new favourite is cycled through?
I have a paired set of Sonos Ones. I have my itunes library on MacOs. I have added the drive to Sonos through Manage and gone through the update process which took over an hour. All I see is “No Selections are available” on each of the categories in the music library. I have 30,000 songs in my library, that should be acceptable right? What can I do to get my library showing up? Are there any log files or diagnostics I can look at to see what the problem is?
Hi, just wonder if anyone else has had the same problem with not being able to access the radio station, ‘Frisky’ (Radio, Chill or Deep stations) on their Sonos since the recent (Aug 2020) app update?Worked fine before that, but I notice that the title ‘Frisky’ is now shown in italics in the list and wondered if this meant something? Tried updating the app (iPhone and Mac), deleting and reinstalling, removing the stations and re-adding them, but nothing seems to work.BTW - Frisky is still in existence: https://www.friskyradio.com/Any help very much appreciated, thanks.
Hi Guys, It seems the issue has already been submitted but I’m not clear regarding the resolution. I have a Sonos Amp and a Synology NAS exposic a music folder. It was working fine for years, but to make it more secure I have decided to create a specific user “sonos” on the NAS which has only RO access to the music folder. In the Sonos App, I’ve removed the previous Music Library service, and recreate it with the new USER. Since this, I’m always receiving an Access Denied error message, when I have correctly typed the right User/Password pair. I’ve tried also to put my NAS admin account with same error ! I really don’t know what to do to solve or even troubleshoot ! Please Help !!! Didier
I have updated both the Sonos app and the Spotify apps on iPhone to the most recent versions. With my Sonos One speakers, I can play Spotify normally through the Sonos app, but I cannot play Spotify on the Sonos speakers through the Spotify app. When in the Spotify app, the Sonos speakers do not show up as options (only my Apple TV’s are showing up as options). I have done all of the normal troubleshooting (restarting modem, restarting router, restarting phone, deleting and re-installing Spotify app), and I am still having the problem. Any input or help is appreciated. Thank you in advance.
Does the Sonos One Gen 2 not have TV Dialogue Sync settings? Issues with Video lagging behind Audio thru Macbook
I recently purchased a Sonos Beam and two One’s (Gen 2) to have as my speakers around the house.I will move and use the speakers in different rooms and different groups as needed.Watched a movie last night using my projector linked to my Macbook using Airplay. Did not notice any sync issues using all 3 speakers.Today I moved the two One’s into my office and linked to my computer. I immediately noticed there was a big issue with audio sync. But the video was actually lagging not the audio. I went through the app and found that the Beam has adjustments for TV Dialogue Sync but the Ones did not. Am I missing something or is this just not going to work from my Mac. Was looking forward to using the speakers while I edit videos but the delay will make that useless.I also was experiencing the issue with just the Beam but even adjusting the TV Dialogue Sync sliders did nothing for me. All speakers and app are up to date.
I only have 8 playlists saved. The smallest has fewer than 60 songs and the largest has 3000 songs. When I try to save a playlist of 795 songs I get this error. The songs are a mix from Napster and my personal library on my PC. Any idea why?
I’m a Canadian that has a Qobuz subscription, and recently jumped onboard with SONOS for my multi-room audio setup. I prefer Qobuz over Tidal for sound quality, as well as for their music library. I was frustrated to find that I was unable to connect my SONOS players to my Qobuz account. Qobuz doesn’t even show up on the list of available services to connect to! I know Qobuz isn’t officially available in Canada, but I don’t see why I can’t select it from the list, and log in if I have an active account. Does anybody know a workaround? Would having a VPN solve this problem?
Hello,I've had to reset my speaker as radio stations weren't working. I've managed to get the speaker back up and running and it plays some radio stations from tune in and Sonos Radio but It won't play any foreign stations which it did do previously until today. What is the issue with it? Also tune in won't find every country under its locations where as before it did, any ideas why this is?Manythanks
Hi, I’m using two streaming services: Tidal and Idagio. Since about a week I can’t stream from those apps to my Sonos anymore. In Tidal, my Sonos Connect’s and Beam don’t show up. In Idagio they do, but the music won’t play. From the Sonos app itself, I can play music from those services (e.g. by selecting from my albums).I tried rebooting modem, router and Sonos systems, but that did not work. I also tried removing the services from the Sonos app and adding them again. That also did not work.I have made a diagnosis with number 1474987482.
