OK - it's retarded that nobody in Sonos Support worked this out themselves, but here is the solution for Mac!!!Simply edit your computer name to be less than 15 characters and make sure it does not contain any special characters such as apostrophes. If you do not do this, OS X assigns you a default NetBIOS name for Windows networking, which does not match your computer name. The Sonos application expects to connect to your default computer name over Windows networking. Note this is clearly a ridiculous bug. Sonos should be trying to connect to the NetBIOS name that OS X is actually using, not the default computer name. To edit your computer name so that OS X can use the same name for Windows networking, go toSystem Preferences... -> Sharing -> Edit...Final note to developer dummies at Sonos. You can retrieve the NetBIOS name actually being used with the following command> defaults read /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.smb.server NetBIOSName
