I tried to get help with this problem a year ago but no one helped me. I believe the problem started with a new computer 2 years ago.One of my choices, in deciding what music to play, is “Music Library”, which connects to my itunes. From there, I go to Imported Playlists. I often make changes to my playlists, so frequently I go to Manage > Update Music Library Now.In itunes, everything looks fine. But in Sonos, each of my playlists is listed twice, many with a different number of songs in each list. If I look at that playlist in itunes, it might have yet another number of songs in it.How can I fix this? I wonder if i have an incorrect setting somewhere...something not pointing to the correct path or folder? My Music and itunes folders are kind of a mess...what looks like lots of extra old stuff.Thanks for any help you can give me...
With the most recent Sonos update, my most recent Apple Music library additions do not show on the Sonos app! Spent 2.5 hours on phone “troubleshooting” with Sonos to be told it’s an Apple problem. Another hour plus with Apple to be told it’s a Sonos problem! Considering it all works on the Apple Music app, seems Sonos the issue! Way too much money invested in Sonos speakers to not be able to listen to anything new!
I have an album in my library which is in WAV format (it was a download from a vinyl I bought, so I can’t rip it into another format) I have listened to it several times over the last 2 weeks via my Sonos system but today, after updating to the latest version of the app, the album no longer appears when i search for it.If I navigate to the folder sonos will play it but it won’t show in a search. The files haven’t changed in anyway, so I can only assume someting has changed with the app? I saw some old posts which refer to problems with WAV tags but the articles they link to no longer exist so I can’t check what was mentioned in them to see what they suggest.if anyone has any ideas I’d appreciate it
All other aspects of the YouTube connection are positive in Google. 3rd party apps shows the Sonos app has permissions for YouTube Music. Activity is tracked in Google activity tracking. Sonos app shows ALL the right YouTube Music information on music through ALL aspects of search (New, Charts, Playlists, etc)However, I still have the error coming up in Sonos app. I can go to Google and look at activity and it shows the songs (videos though) as being played for the short period before it errors in Sonos. So the Sonos app is attempting to talk to YouTube Music, get’s a connection and link, then get’s an encoding error as it is a video it is hitting and not YouTube Music (therefor the encoding error).There are so many rabbit holes to follow to fix, but it looks like the Sonos app is sending the wrong call to YouTube and getting a “Video” response rather than a “Mp4/Music encoding” response and can’t play it resulting in an “unable to connect to YouTube Music”.It would be appreciated if y
Diagnostics code: 800228317“Unable to plant SONG - connection to Spotify was lost” is haunting me. I’ve re-authorized within the app, and can play Spotify directly on my iPhone / ipad on the same wireless network. And I can search spotify through the Sonos app. A recent failure is at the diagnostics code submitted. Appreciate any help Sonos may have...
Hi all!I have two Sonos speakers at home and we recently bought two speakers in the work office, which I duly set up. As I already had the Sonos app on my phone, I just linked the two office speakers to my personal account, which is fine when I’m at work (as the music usually runs off of my mac), but when I’m not in the office and someone else wants to use or download the sonos app, they would need my personal log in details.I have a Sonos account set up for the office, but I’m not sure how I go about moving just those two products to that account and off of my own personal account?
I have installed a NAS drive and My Cloud Home on my Sonos. I have dragged and dropped all of the music albums in my iTunes library to the NAS drive. Almost all of them are then available from the Sonos My Cloud Home library menu, and play normally. However, there are a few music which will not show up in the My Cloud Home library menu - even though they are present in the data files on the NAS drive. I have deleted and re-loaded the data more than once - but the same few music albums refuse to be available in the My Cloud Home view.
When I try to connect my YouTube Music Premium account to Sonos it gets as far as YouTube Music saying it’s approved and to continue setup in the Sonos app. But when I switch back over to the Sonos app it says there was an error but does not provide an error code.
My system is a pair of Sonos 1’s with S2 controller. Mac OS Big Sur. After upgrading from S1 to S2 I lost acess to my Mac OS library. It resides on another drive attached to my desktop. I have tried every possible suggestion on this website and still can’t manage to get it to recognize the library. I think it has something to do with the path. When I browse for the folder on the desktop, I identify it without problem, but in the iOS Sonos app it lists a different folder. If I try to force add the folder by typing in the path, it won’t recognize it. Any ideas?
Hi,I have upgraded both Sonos 2 (13.1) and Sonos 1 on my iMac; but now i have lost my music library.II have now spent 3 days trying to reload the library to Sonos and every time i get either a1002 or my iMac is blocking Sonos access message. I spent 2 hours on the phone with one of Sonos’s support guys and achieved nothing.Everything worked perfectly prior to the download of the new Sonos version (13.1). To my knowledge nothing has been changed on my computer.Actionstaken:Norton Anti Virus removed from computerIMac Anti Virus turned on and off - neither workFile Sharing turned on and off - neither workedinternet Router turned on and off 4 timesNew Sonos 2 and Sonos 1 downloaded several timesAccess to music file, access to iTunes access to Music all selected and all failed to load library.Does anyone know what is causing this problem?
Hello, I have a weird issue where I can be listening to a radio station and when someone else on the network opens the S2 app - playback stops for a few seconds before coming back on again. Does anyone have any ideas as to what would cause this? It seems to only happen with radio (Sonos Radio/TuneIn) The network consists of several Connect:Amps and a Playbar all hardwired (individually) direct to a gigabit network switch which has a single uplink to the main router. There’s also a Sub which connects wirelessly. I’ve isolated the network to only have Sonos on it and the issue still appears. Broadband speed is good. Any help appreciated!
I’ve been listening to Proton Radio via TuneIn for a couple of years, without problems. But it has stopped working. The station is still operating, and I can stream directly from the website via my MacBook and Airplay. But I’d rather stream directly to my Sonos system. I already tried “Add Radio Station” without success.I also tried MyTuner and Sonos Radio, but I can’t get it to work. This is the URL:https://www.protonradio.comNote: this is about “Proton Radio” and not “Radio Proton”. The two are unrelated.
Hello,Since a couple of weeks, it seems I only have one single activity playlist (Romance !) instead of the usual 10 playlists (romance + essentials, fitness, party, etc...). Please refer to screenshot attached. I tried accessing Sonos using a different device and the same issue prevails. Can you please let me know if this is a general issue or am I the only one being affected ? How can this issue be resolved ?Thanks ! NicolasPS : This issue follows a previous issue where number of playlists from Apple Activity Playlists (using Sonos S2 App) were much narrower than the number of playlists provided by the Apple App directly. A bit furstrating !
Bonjour,depuis quelques jours il est impossible de lire beaucoup de pistes Amazon music HD avec mon Sonos connect.Une message s’affiche: “impossible de lire - Le morceau n’est pas correctement encodé”Je ne comprends pas tout marchait parfaitement il y a quelques jours.Est-ce un problème depuis une mise à jour?Merci pour votre aide.
I had Spotify working on my brand new Sonos system for a week until this past week when I added Soundcloud music service to my Sonos. I then tried to use Spotify and now keep getting an error message saying “the connection to Spotify was lost”. It is absolutely frustrating as all my other music services work. PLEASE HELP
I have searched in other topics, but i have not found any answer or fix for this problem.Suddenly during a song it can stop for a couple of seconds and then continue again. This is very frustrating. What i have tried so far is. Changing router, channels on the router. Connecting through wifi and also with ethernet. All kinds of resets. I have tried using Spotify connect and also the Sonos app. I’ve tried from different devices too to connect.I also have a Play 1. No problem whatsoever with that one.I have tried other streaming services (Youtube music & Apple music) and with them there’s no issue at all.I’ve had this problem for more than a year.I just submit a diagnosic: 1540223134
For the past week, for some portion of the day, my Spotify stops working and I get “unable to play, connection to Spotify lost.” Some random time later in the day (or the next morning), it works again until it doesn’t. We’ve also experienced Spotify skipping songs randomly. Never happened previously.Issue is when using the sonos app. I can get Spotify to play to a single speaker using the Spotify app. Other services are working fine, so it makes me think it’s not a connectivity issue. Litany of products. Diagnostic number 2039938.
