As if the loud pop wasn’t enough, since I added more speakers to my Sonos system (I’d say that it was after adding the Sub Mini) I’m unable to send music directly via the Music app on iOS.My Sonos equipment is a combination of Arc + 2 Era 300’s + Sub Mini.The system does appear listed below, as you can see (it’s the one called “Comedor”): But I select it, even though it looks as if it was sending sound, nothing would play and after a few minutes the streaming to that speaker set would be cancelled and the sound will start playing on the iPhone instead.Surprisingly enough, if I add another speaker to the selection (even if it’s a Homepod), the sound will be send to the Sonos system. However, if the song is in Dolby Atmos, it will be sent in Stereo format instead (so it basically ignores the Dolby Atmos format. This does only seem to be happening when I only select the Sonos speaker system.I’m not sure if this is due to changes in iOS 17 or to the fact that I added the Sub Mini to my set
I want to subscribe to Sonos Radio HD. However, when I go to https://www.sonos.com/en-us/myaccount/user/subscriptions, I’m getting an erroneous message that “*Looks like you already have an existing subscription to Radio HD through Apple. You can access that subscription through your Apple ID settings.” However, the Apple Sonos subscription has already expired. There is no more active subscription through Apple. Please advise.
Hi, the app is asking me to reauthorise my BBC sounds account. But it is auto selecting a random app to try to open what I presume is meant to be BBC sounds, and so it doesn't work. It doesn't allow me to select any other app e.g. chrome. Does anyone know how to override this auto selection?Thanks!
I hope that someone can help me.I have used Spotify for a long time but I am currently experimenting with YouTube Premium and may well settle on the latter. Part of the reason for this is that I can listen to YT videos via a Chromecast audio on the line-in to my ZP90. I think that Sonos will play albums from YT Music just as it will from Spotify but not the audio track of videos. Of particular interest to me are videos of live music that are not available as albums, for example Hania Rani live at Invalides, in Paris, France for Cercle. I can do this from my PC provided that I use Chrome rather than Firefox, my preferred browser, but this only finds the CCa (and TV and Roku) and not Sonos but will thus play through Sonos, although seems to be subject to drop outs which is very annoying. (That may be a fault with the CCa, although I suspect it is something else)However my Android phone using the YT app will only find the TV and Roku but not the Chromecast or Sonos. Spotify on PC and p
My sonos installation was stable with S1 version. My phones/pads obliged me to upgrade to S2, impossible to use S1 anymore. Only the play:1 has been detected after installation… I used a sonos bridge which is no more usable ! It is said on the website that S1 is still useable, but it is not the case for my apple devices. Has anyone got an idea or experienced this problem ?Thank you for help
The Sonos app is on my phone. Once I leave my WiFi area and come back the same speaker is always missing from the app - my Arc. If I start up music on other speakers, the Arc will play as well, but it is not seen by the app. I have to unplug it and then sometimes it will be seen again. If not seen, I search for products and then it is found and can be controlled.
I recently discovered that the actual TuneIn service will be replaced by a new one which is, for the record, not free anymore. I used the actual TuneIn to add my own radio station (rockradio.com) and was perfectly happy with it for many years. These streams are defined as https links. The own radio station was the only feature I used. I tried the new TuneIn and couldn’t find an equivalent feature.I have called the support and the only thing they were able to say is that the actual TuneIn service will disappear from my system anytime soon.I have also on my network a Synology server which provides the music library service. Maybe is there a solution through the Synology?Has anyone a solution to keep the own radio station service without using TuneIn?The own radio station was the reason I bought a Sonos system; it could be the reason I’ll get rid of it. I’m quite surprised that adding such a basic thing as a stream is not a native feature of the Sonos system itself.Any help would be great
Can I somehow export a SONOS Playlist (as xml, csv, m3u, ... SOME text format) in order to change it and import it back ?
Hello,I’m asking a question since the existing topics are rather old…I have a “Sonos playlist”, created by me, which contains files that were located on some network path on my NAS.Now I changed my NAS (different name, also slightly moved the music folders, so for sure can’t re-use the old playlist...) and I was wondering if I have any at-least-partially-automated way to update my playlist, eg:exporting it in some text format, replacing some path portions in a text editor, and the importing it back. exporting it, somehow creating an m3u out of it and importing the m3u…Is there any such possibility ?Thank you.
I am unable to access “Live and Extra” Sirius XM Channels on either my Apple IPad and Samsung A7 phone. I am able to access “Recent” Sirius XM Channels on both platforms. When accessing the entire list of Live and Xtra channels, I get the message “Sorry something went wrong, please try again”. The Sirius XM app (without Sonos) works perfectly on both my IPad and Samsung phone.
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?"
Hello,I have an Android and an iPhone cellphone. My youtube music playlists with 100+ songs are shown with an infinite scroll just fine on Android. On iPhone though it stops loading at a fixed number, like 100. So you can only see the first 100 items of your list on iPhone.
Out of the blue, my S2 system no longer connects to My Cloud, where all my digital music files are stored. The drive itself is fine and functions independently. When I select My Cloud Home I get an error message telling me the My Cloud account needs to be reauthorized. When I click ‘reauthorize’ it brings up a new screen telling me my account cannot be found. Interestingly, when I go the the list of a-z Music Services listed in the system menu My Cloud Home is not there. I’ve got used to the seemingly endless full outages with my cloud services on sonos but according to the website, everything is online.
Years ago, I purchased a sonos setup that included a playbar, 2 Play:3 speakers, and a Sub. I believe the purchase was made around 2014/15. I know I have outdated speakers, but they still sound fantastic, and they work great. Until today. I can no longer get any audio out of the of the speaks. The S1 app says all 4 components need an update, and takes me to the new sonos app to do so. When I download the new sonos app, it says my speakers are not compatable and cannot be updated in the new app. I’m now stuck with speakers that don’t work, needing an update with no way to update them. Anyone know how to resolve this? Is there a way to resolve this?Any help would be appreciated. I have zero desire spending thousands of dollars upgrading to a new sonos system just so it can talk to a the new app.
Stingray services won’t play. It opens but has lost all my history, favourites, etc. It shows only Recommendations and My Music, and when I open one, it says “unable to browse music.”I have deleted and re-added Stingray numerous times. I’ve reauthorized the Stingray. I’ve updated the Sonos desktop and other device apps. Both apps are on the same wifi network in my house. Nothing has changed except I’ve lost access to all the Stingray channels. Why????
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”?
Whenever I use the new search I get hit with this error message that says “Your request can’t be processed at this time. If the problem persists, please check our Service Status page.” I switch to classic search and it goes through and endless loading loop of the search results. The only way I’ve been able to successfully use my system is by removing all music services except for one so I can quickly tap on it before it clears. It doesn’t matter which music service i search for. I’ve tried updating the app, rebooting my system, and a hard reset. It still works. I’ve talked to one person who said it’s my phone but it happens on iPad as well. Haven’t tried the desktop version. The service people I’ve spoken to just have me switch my channel back and forth. If it helps it only helps for an hour or so.Has anyone dealt with this before?
