I have two audio sources (Apple TV and IPTV) with a Playbase, Sub and two Play3’s (surround) connected as a group and the audio skips when surround or sub is turned on. The moment I turn them off, the audio works fine and goes back to skipping when I turn them back on.
- OS is up to date
- All speakers have been reset
- Router has been restarted and reset as well
- Audio sources have been restarted
- Optical cable has been swapped out
Previously I had a playbar instead of playbase in the same setup and never had such issues. After I replaced it with playbase, I started to have these skipping issues and that’s when I went through above mentioned steps. The problem happens even if I airplay through my phone but not if I am playing music via Sonos App.
