Feature Request: Pair two AMPs to drive Height and Surround with ARC plus Sub
I’ve got a long narrow room that has five ceiling speakers installed currently, driven by an AVR, that make up a simple 5.1 setup. Do to mounting constraints the height speakers of the ARC will be useless. I’d like to use the front L/R speakers for Dolby Atmos Height channels, driven by an AMP - Similar to how the AMP currently can currently drive the rear surrounds.In my preferred setup I’d have the ARC, Sub, and Two AMPs to complete the surround setup.
Surround speakers OR Stereo pair
Surround speakers OR Stereo Pair option in S2 App?My current set up is an Sonos Arc plus 2 x Sonos SL one’s in my lounge.Will Sonos ever create an option in their S2 App that would allow you to switch the same pair of Sonos speakers between a surround set up OR a stereo pair with one button press ?Music sounds much better when I set the SL ones a stereo pair when compared to set as surrounds ( with the surround option set to “Full” and an increase in the music volume in the surround set up menu ).I don’t really want to buy another pair of Sonos speakers! I have seen quite a few other threads looking for this same option. Is this perhaps a marketing ploy by Sonos to generate more sales over end user functionality?Many thanks.
Another Playbase user with WiFi problems
Hello,My playbase has been unable to connect to wifi for well over a year now, so effectively I’ve had to connect it directly to my router which means it is not controllable via the app or useful for anything other than the permanent connection to the TV. I can no longer connect it to the network to use it for Spotify or other services. I’ve gone through all the troubleshooting procedures but have never been able to reconnect the system wirelessly.I notice from this forum that this is not an unusual problem. What options are available to me at this point?
Sonos Beam (Gen 2) Questions
I’m trying to decide whether to pull the trigger on a Beam 2 today but have a few questions. I would be using it with a Samsung UN43TU8000FXZA (2020 Model) and my only source is DirecTV. I’m using a DirecTV RC73 remote that I have paired to the Samsung allowing Volume & Mute control. My questions:Is this going to be a plug & play setup for me and relatively trouble free? I’m pretty technically inclined and have lots of smart devices but don’t think I’m willing to troubleshoot a finicky product all the time. I’m not a young guy anymore so I’m unable to run Ethernet to the Beam 2, would you discourage purchasing because of having to use WiFi? There appears to be an option to pair the Beam 2 with my DirecTV HR44 Genie receiver. I’m assuming it will allow my DirecTV remote to control the Beam 2 Volume, but will I lose the command to turn off my TV? Will the Beam 2 display an Volume bar on the TV when adjusting the Volume? Bottom line I’m needing this because the Samsung’s TV speake
No sound from many sky channels
Help. Going bonkers have had sonos many years and all been perfect. Recently set up new surround system in another room. Beam and 2 one’s. Plays music and Netflix perfect through tv. Sky, however is a different story. Many occasions have sound and many not. Have reset everything tv. Sky. Sonos Reconnected sonos to tv many times etc. changed HDMI leads and the best I can get is tv sound on some channels but very few. Have gone through sky set up God knows how many times and all is as it should be. PS5 plays through tv in surround also. Connected by HDMI ARC (have tried optic lead and same result). Has anyone come across the same or have any ideas? I have spent a week testing trying and changing everything 😬Any advice would be appreciated CheersMartin
Play to surrounds with no power to Beam?
I bought a beam yesterday to go with my living room TV and set it up with my 2 sonos ones to make a surround sound system, however, I don't want to have the beam on all the time wasting electricity so have it attached to a smart plug so it turns off when the tv turns off but when I do that I can't then use my sonos ones to just play normal music. Is there a way around this or do I have to have the beam on constantly to be able to use anything in my living room?

5.1 speaker set up
I’m looking into getting a Sonos Home Theatre system and I have been getting conflicting information from reps at Best Buy and (old) posts on the sonos community.Can the following set up work for a true 5.1 surround system; 1 x Ray, 4 x OneSLs, 1 x Sub (gen 3) ?Also, will the system mesh into the three IKEA speakers I’ve got already for music?I’ve seen (very old) posts that say ‘no’. And I spoke to reps at Best Buy who say ‘yes’ (some times definite and sometimes ‘hypothetically’)
Sonos Arc + PS5 + Linear PCM
There’s been a lot of discussion around this issue but I’ve seen no definitive answer from a Sonos rep so let me try asking based on my personal setup. I have a Sony PS5 connected to a Sony AG9 OLED via the HDMI 1 port (enhanced). That TV is connected to a Sonos ARC via the HDMI 3 port (eARC, enhanced) with the Sub (gen 3) and x2 One SLs.The TV sound settings are as follows:Speakers: Audio System A/V sync: Auto eARC mode: Auto Digital audio out: Auto 1 Digital audio out volume: Max Dolby Digital Plus output: Dolby Digital Plus Pass through mode: Auto The Arc has successfully output Dolby Digital Plus, DD+ and Atmos in testing with various Android TV streaming apps including Netflix, Prime, Disney+ and Apple TV+. So the TV using it’s built-in apps are performing great. The PS5 however is a different story... The PS5 settings are as follows:HDMI Device Type: AV Amplifier Number of Channels: 5.1 Audio Format: Linear PCMThe Sonos App tells me that the audio in this configuration is Multich
Why doesn't Netflix play 5.1 through Dish? Does work directly from tv though.
Brand new Sonos Arc, subwoofer, and 2x 1SL’s. Brand new Samsung QN90B. Sonos is hooked up to eARC port with high speed new HDMI cables.The Dish gives 5.1 sound on regular tv channels and Amazon app on Dish. But when I stream Netflix movie through Dish app, it’s flat stereo sound and nothing from rear speakers.If I use the Netflix app on the Samsung tv, I do get 5.1 sound.Why?And where on the Sonos app on Android phone does it show what the sound quality/type is?

Playing TV Sound In Other Rooms - ISSUE
I have a 2022 Sonos Arc, Sub, 2x Rear One SL speakers in the TV Area.When grouping the Sonos Five in the kitchen or Sonos One SL in the Bedroom, both these speakers are cutting out.This only happens when listening to sound through the TV. (YouTube, regular TV channels etc).It does not happen when listening to Spotify through the Sonos app. When speaking to Sonos customer service for the 3rd time this week about the issue, the 3rd person has now confirmed it is not possible to play sound from the TV through more than the Arc, Sub and 2x SL rear speakers (5.1 surround set up).Any speakers grouped outside of the 5.1 set up will get this intermittent cutting out. I have even tried Ethernet directly into these speakers from the router. Which I suspect the Sonos Boost will replicate if purchased. Sometimes it can work without issues and sometimes it’s really bad. More so than not it is bad. Network speed here is:150mb Download (Fibre to premises)30mb Upload (Fibre to premises) Does anyone ha
