Hi all. Since the automatic S1 software upgrade, 6 out of my 7 Sonos speakers have worked fine, however a Play 1 speaker has disappeared from my list. Normally I would simply do find product to add it back to my list, but when doing that Sonos states it needs to do a software update first. My Sonos version on my PC is 11.1 and I want to remain on S1 software. I’m worried if I select update software it will update to S2. Any ideas please on how I can simply add my missing Play 1 speaker without screwing everything up? Sonos used to be so easy to use, but since they introduced S2 its now difficult :-(

Hi @wassers11,  thanks for the update. We were able to check the diagnostic report that you’ve sent, and we verified that you’re on the S1 App. On the missing play 1, we can see 6 speakers. If you can try to check it on another controller to find a missing product to check if the missing play 1 will show up.
