No Sound for TV using Sonos Connect but music player works

I have four Sonos Connect Amps that drive six different rooms. Four rooms are just speakers for music and two rooms are for TV sound and music. Those two rooms show up in Sonos as Line In. I lose sound for TV in those rooms often and the switching back and forth between music and TV does not work well. Right now I’ve completely lost TV audio on one room and have rebooted Sonos, updated the app, toggled between TV and music in Sonos, etc.

Most issues with "grouping" rooms with a line in have to do with wifi interference, as the bandwidth necessary to carry line in sources is much larger, generally speaking, than the bandwidth necessary for standard streamed music.

Some people have found relief by adjusting some of the line in settings, as indicated in the Line In FAQ, but some of that might increase the amount of "lag" that you might experience, which may or may not be an issue for you.
