Help me to understand how I can turn my TV (HTML ARC) on and not have to adjust the volume up every time. Why can’t the Sonos Amp hold its last volume position? This is the way audio devices have worked since forever. If I am missing something, let me know. Can this be a software update? What is the meaning of have it default to 0 anyway?
I recently upgraded to S2 at last and was disappointed to find that the S2 Controller for the Mac is still not remotely accessible. There was a discussion about this on S1 years ago and I think that thread is Locke now.Most of the buttons aren’t labelled, so when you use it you just hear “button, button, button, button” as you move through items. Then it seems impossible to give all the import bits focus. I can’t navigate to the choose rooms button (although the dialog that appears does work with VO if I can somehow get lucky with the mouse), and neither the queue or browse panes seem to be usable at all.I’m really disappointed how little Sonos seem to regard the Mac app. By way of contrast, the iPhone app is really great. But if it worked, it would be much faster and more convenient for me to use the Mac in most cases. Is there any way of this ever getting any attention? I feel that a lot of the issues are very likely to be trivial to fix.
Hi Everyone! Been looking for months to find an answer and figured it’s time to ask the community. Here is my situation: I’ve got 2 older amps (connect:amp and a ZP100) that each run a pair of Klipsch 650-SM ROCK SPEAKERS (FYI- each rock speaker is true dual speakers). These run on the S1 app since the older amps don’t support S2. My entire house is S2 and I’ve come to a point that I either need to downgrade all my speakers in the house to S1 or figure out a way to bring my outdoor speakers into the S2 world. Would I be able to purchase 1 Port and use it for both older amps? While they’re currently set up in 2 outdoor zones, one zone would be fine. Or do I need to bite the bullet and purchase 2 new Sonos Amps? Any other ways to make it work without dropping $1k+? Thanks in advance!
Hi, updated to 14.2 today and suddenly noticed that songs with special characters in the filename or title (have not investigated in depth yet) won't be played from the local library.I remember this problem from 13.1 and it was fixed in 13.3.Anyone else experiencing this?Really frustrating this happening again. EDIT: Seems to work now after a couple hours. Did some rescans before, so not sure what changed things. Will observe.
hey all, i have had the same setup for years a play five or play one in every room and a sonos connect to control it all. I recently added a playbar and ive been told i dont need the connect any longer. does the playbar take over as master ?note all speakers are wireless but the connect is wired thanks !
Has anybody experienced problems with their desktop app after updating macOS to 12.3.1?when I open the app I get the spinning beachball of death and message that it’s searching for my sonos system. Every thing was fine until this update, and my iOS apps work fine on phone and iPad. My system has both wired and wireless components , but nothing shows up on the desktop app. I’ve tried deleting and reinstalling the app but when I click on join existing system the veachball e turns and will spin to the end of time if I let it.
Sonos, constraining sound for the displeasure of listeners -- and please don't dare update an old product or you'll lose everything.
Other than the quality of sound and assortment of apps, what real services are provided for listeners? It’s a shame the list does not go on, and simply ends there. It’s a product that doesn’t allow use without Wi-Fi and doesn’t have an option for headphones. I’m proud to have persuaded fellow friend from indulging in the same misadventures I have when it comes to buying constrained speakers. Why have rules or limitations on sound?
Why is Sonos lacking the Chromecast functionality, which basically every 100€ WiFi speaker has. It makes it impossible to use YouTube music ( you have to open the Sonos controller and control it from there instead of just pressing the cast button) and it makes using the Google Assistant unnecessarily cumbersome. You have to specify the speaker after a voice command instead of being able to simply set Sonos as a default speaker. That not enough, it also makes it impossible to cast all audio to Sonos. Sonos always talks about being open and support all platforms, yet after waiting a year longer than Airplay 2 users (which got supported as soon as the service got released), we get a shitty, half-assed service lacking basic functionality. Sonos basically incentivizes people to switch to Google Home Max et al, to use get the full capability from the services.
My system works fine, hardware and Sonos apps (everything is up to date), except this notice/message appears now and then very briefly when Sonos app/controller on my Windows 10 computer is started: "You need to set up at least one Sonos speaker to get the music started. Open the Sonos app on a mobile device to continue". Two buttons: "Get the mobile app" and "More options" It disappears very fast and the Sonos controller opens normally as usual and works fine. Is something wrong?
Is it chuffing possible to have a clear and clean answer from Sonos tech or managers to understand WHY it is not possible to control SONOS volume with Mac keyboard keys but you have to go through several more clicks to invoke the Sonos controller????? What is the heck with you Sonos guys… why don’t you make it possible like it was on older systems??? I have checked the forums and you have always found a sneaky way not to plainly answer.I think it is about time you put the money where your mouth is!!! I am utterly annoyed.
Is there any use in adjusting speaker distance after trueplay? To be able to adjust the speaker distance you have to turn trueplay off, then do the adjustments, for so turning the trueplay back on. But after this is done, the speaker distance is grayed out. So I wonder if doing it this way will effect the sound, or are you just back to your original truplay distance?
My wife has the S1 app on her Ipad and Iphone and have the S1 app on my Android phone and also on my Windows laptop. The app only works on my Windows laptop, not on any of our other devices.We have gotten the REALLY annoying requests to upgrade to the S2 app when opening our S1 app. We have declined because we know the S2 app is not compatible with our speakers. What is happening now is the S1 app loads but then tells me all of my speakers are incompatible and wants me to update to the S1 app (which I am currently using), then a Sonos update screen pops up with the option to update, I select update and it looks like it is updating, then I get a Update Problem screen, and an option to try again which just puts me in an endless loop.Is this an app problem or is Sonos not supporting the older speakers any longer? Is my only option to download an unapproved controller app from Play Store?Also, I have tried rebooting the speakers and router. It didn’t work.
We have a large investment in our Sonos system, and use the S2 apps on MacOS and iOS/iPadOS (all current OS versions), With the exception of bug fixes and firmware updates, I haven’t seen a single user interface update since its release. Note that while we have an AppleTV (and 3 Apple Watches), we never use either to control Sonos, so I’m not looking for apps on those OSs - just updates to iOS would be sufficient though sync’ing the UI in MacOS and iOS would be very much appreciated.Given Sonos’s premium market positioning (and cost), I expect that at a minimum there would be updates and improvements to the UI, making it more current and better organized like other apps and systems. At least some functionality improvements should be included as well. The app is completely static from the user standpoint. Are there any plans or projects in the works to update the app’s UI and features? If so, can you provide details as to some of the possible changes as well as rough timeline? I’m consi
Hi, I have a philips 10bdl4551t with Android 8.1 that I would like to install the Sonons App S2 on to control the sonos speakers in the office. But the philips 10bdl4551t is a pro screen and don´t have a playstore, I have manually downloaded akp, but it fails to install. Is there an official APK to install?
Not sure this is the best place to post this……..but where do you post or submit Sonos feature requests? I have been a long term Sonos user and have a few recommendations for features. Please let me know if there is a better place to submit or post these…….where they are most likely to be voiced to Sonos representatives who may act if enough people suggest? The first, is to suggest that the Tunein service allow sign-in so that you can use the Sonos App to listen to TuneIn Premium if you are paying for this anyhow. I have seen requests for this going back at least 10 years, but Sonos does not seem to have ever added this. I believe newer services similar to Sonos have added this, such as Bluesound, and see no obvious reason why this would not be relatively easy to implement. I do think they should implement their own Sonos app for Apple watch I do think they should add a Sonos Controller app for Android TV so that Sony and other Android based smart TV’s can show what’s playing o
Hi,I have a DLINK 320 NAS and 2 Sonos Play 1’s. I have my Music stored in a folder Volume_1\Media\Sonos followed by a Folder for each Artist. Its been like this for several years with almost no issues. About a month ago I noticed I’d lost all my Music on my Sonos with the exception of one Album. I looked on my NAS and all the media had been deleted, All my other stuff on my NAS had not changed. I copied the music back again from another drive and bizarrely the next day it had been deleted again.So I did the same thing again, the next day all my Music had been deleted from the NAS. The other stuff was still intact. Since then I’ve re-imaged my NAS and rebuilt it 3 or 4 times with a 3rd Party image which didn’t work very well with Sonos, I’ve gone back to the original DLINK image, reformatted my NAS and copied over the Music once again, and today the Music I added yesterday has been deleted again this morning. I’m loathed to buy another NAS as not 100% sure it will fix the problem, any i
