I have two PLAY:1 speakers that I control from the (pretty appalling) iOS app playing from my uPnP music server on the network.
However, I also have a large collection on a portable device that can stream directly to the speakers. The problem is that the Sonos announces themselves with their IP addresses so the portable device sees names such as "123.456.1.250 - Sonos PLAY:1" and "234.567.1.245- Sonos PLAY:1".
Since i don't carry my network address table around in my head its a bit hit and miss which one I connect to (the pair are also DHCP so there's a chance the address could change).
The friendly names are held, I believe, in an XML config file on each Sonos device. I can read the contents but can't change them.
Anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks in advance
