So frustrated at the lack of correct information on the Airplay2 rollout. I just spent £2000 on a playbar, sub and surrounds and was informed that AirPlay 2 was scheduled. I was also told that even though the playbar wouldn’t directly support AirPlay the ones would act as a bridge. I don’t understand how the app wont support Scenes, ie groups of speakers within the same system. I’m a podcast addict and just want to stream via AirPlay.
This for example.
I do not know if sonos has changed to only work with an internet connection or not.
Been there - done that guys. Read this post of 5 months ago; you are both wrong.https://en.community.sonos.com/setting-up-sonos-228990/get-rid-of-the-annoying-update-request-6802672BELIEVE ME PLEASE - I'll happily pay your airfare to NZ to fix this if I thought for a nano second you could do it. It isn't possible. So, moving on...can anyone please tell me help me with my query. Thank you.
I have two Sonos setups, one at home and one at a church with no internet connection. The latter is useless – a complete waste of money since Sonos upgraded the App with a feature that forces an internet connection before it will work. Everything worked well for years and then – poof – useless!So now I’m reading about the Airplay2 and am wondering if I may be able to get around my issue.
You DO need to be connected in order to update, and you cannot add a new speaker without updating..
I have read that if I had a Play one I could get that setup and connect to the Playbar but what I'm now realising is that I'm still at square 1, in that in setting up the Play One I would need that internet connection..
