Hi therei have a new Samsung 55 inch QLED (Q60B) and I can’t connect to my new gen 2 beam. It consistently says the message “your audio device is connects to a port that does not support ARC, please connect your device to HDMI (2) ARC port.” I have connected the HDMI cable to the rear of the tv in the ARC connection just above the audio out. what am I doing wrong? ThanksJoe
I have BEAM connected to a SONY Bravia KJ-49X9500H via HDMI.There is no problem with normal TV programs, commercials, movies, Amazon Prime Video, etc., but only during NHK news the audio stops working.I have tried various settings on the TV, but there is no improvement. Please tell me how to set this up.
HiI am using Apple TV 4K ( 1st gen). I just bought today “Sonos ARC” if I want to use Apple TV 4K with this sound bar in order to get “Dolby Atmos” sound experience then how I can get it as my tv doesn’t have HDMI eARC port also. The problem is the Soundbar has only one HDMI ARC port! No other HDMI port available . if I connect input HDMI from “Apple TV 4K “ to Soundbar HDMI ARC port, then how I can connect my TV screen to this soundbar as there is no other HDMI port left on the soundbar!Any Suggestions please. i;e ; if need eARC HDMI converter , can you recommend any !thanks//Gazi
Hi!I would like to connect sound from my Projector Optoma UHD43 (Jack / SPDIF) to my SYMFONISK Picture frame speakers, which is the best way to do it? I also have UHD Cast Pro, but can’t figure out to setup sound streaming to SONOS. Also is there a cheap way to do it without buying AMP?
I’m trying to connecting a Sonos Beam gen2 and two One SL speakers to my projector, which is a Benq HT2050A. I believe the projector does not have HDMI ARC capabilities. Is there any hope? I’d love to at least be able to have the Beam work with the projector. Thank you for any help!
I was wondering since butt kicker released a wireless system Would it work with my surround sound sonos system I have the arc and 2 sonos five's and 2 subs This would be really awesome if this could work Also can't wait to get my hands on optima 2 I hope they're coming really soon true Atmos is what sonos needs
I’m debating replacing the Play 3 in the living room, which sits under the TV, with a Ray, for the obvious benefit of playing TV audio through it. Right now, the Play 3 just used for music and NPR and I don’t want to downgrade that capability. There’s only a slim chance of adding surrounds. (I know it sounds weird, but because of the house layout and available walls, the big TV with the beam is in a bedroom, and the living room TV is an afterthought.)
I’m really enjoying the SONOS Arc but last night encountered a frustrating problem that I could not resolve. On hearing a song I liked during the closing credits of a TV show I’d been watching, I found the song on Spotify and played it on the Arc, the TV was still ON but without the audio. Once the song from Spotify had finished I wanted to resume watching the TV but could not get TV audio back on the Arc. I tried adjusting the TV volume level, checked that Auto Play was switched on in the Arc settings, turned the TV off and then on again but nothing worked. I have the Arc connected to an LG OLED65C7V TV via the HDMI (ARC) output. I’m sure there must be a simple away of switching between TV and Music On the Arc but, whatever it is, I either couldn’t find it or it’s not working for me ! Any helpful advice would be much appreciated, thank you.
After updating to version 14.12, I re-tuned the trueplay tuning, the result is that the subwoofer sound is small, position, sub audio is 0, but the volume is low. I'm using a Gen 3 sub woofer.Hopefully sonos will fix this bug soon thank you
So I recently picked up the Sonos Arc + Sub and a Samsung Q90T TV (which has HDMI 2.1/eArc) and I am experiencing the sound cutting out periodically. Some details: Only devices I can test with are an Xbox One S, Xbox One X and the built-in Samsung TV Apps Sonos, Xboxes and Saumsung are properly set to have Dolby Atmos I have experienced sound cutting out on both Atmos and 5.1 I have experienced sound cutting out from both the Xboxes as well as the built-in Samsung TV Apps (only tested the Netflix app) . . . so I know the Xboxes aren't the issue At times the sound cuts out very infrequently (minutes apart) and other times about every 10 to 20 seconds and there is no discernible pattern on what changes this. There is a sound setting on the TV showing ‘sound output’ that should should normally say ‘Receiver(HDMI-eARC)’ when you have the ‘HDMI eARC Mode’ set to ‘auto’ but sometimes shows ‘Receiver(HDMI)’ instead (as if it lost the eARC signal). The most st
Hello. I have a Beam hooked up to my tv downstairs. I have two One SLs (surround) and mini Sub connected to the Beam group, and I use it for tv and music. I was thinking about getting a Five to connect to my turntable upstairs in the house. I am a bit confused about the extent to which I can use it with my existing products. If possible, I would like to be able to play the turntable upstairs on the Five by itself, upstairs and downstairs at the same time (on some or all of the existing speakers - not sure if the Beam is appropriate for this), and only downstairs. The Five would not need to support the tv. I was hoping I could just have two rooms set up (the existing tv room and the new turntable room upstairs) and create another grouping of them together and simply choose where to play the turntable. Are there issues here that I would need to consider, etc.? I have seen it suggested that I might need to only use the One SLs and mini Sub downstairs in conjunction with the Five. Thank yo
I have a Sonos beam, Sub Mini with two Sonos One SL. My Tv is an LG - 75" Class NanoCell 85 Series LED 4K UHD Smart webOS TV with a Firestick 4k Max. The beam is connected via eArc using a Rockfish 12’ 8k ultra high speed HDMI 2.1 cable. When I try to play content with Dolby Atmos on Disney+, Apple TV+ or HBO Max am only get Dolby Digital 5.1 output. No Atmos. Any tips to getting Dolby Atmos?
Buonasera,Da un po' di giorni ho riscontrato il seguente difetto su beam2.Ho un Philips 55 OLED 806/12 al quale ho collegato soundbar beam2 tramite cavo HDMI sulla porta HDMI earc.Come formato uscita digitale ho settato multicanale( bypass).Succede che ogni tanto nelle visioni di programmi stereo PCM l'audio salti per qualche secondo..Ho provato a staccare spina TV ma nulla.Ho notato che se metto uscita digitale solo multicanale,ricevo un suono dolby multi Channel pcm 2.0 e non salta...ma mi sembra di qualità inferiore, inoltre se lascio solo su multicanale non ricevo il dolby pro logic..che è migliore...quindi credo che l opzione migliore rimanga il multicanale beatstream che però ogni tanto mi fa saltare audio... soluzioni? Grazie mille
I’ve seen this topic before, but have never really seen any resolution. I have had my system for about a year, and almost every day I have to reset it. I have the Arc and two One SL for surrounds. The Surrounds disconnect on a daily basis. Now the sub has started doing it as well, and sometimes even the arc. I will open the app and it can’t find anything in my system. I unplug everything, and then it reconnects like nothing ever happened. But it happens every day, and I can’t figure out how to fix it. Does anyone know? Thanks!
I’ve got the Sonos Surround Set. Just bought the Samsung QD-OLED, which has eArc. I am now able to get Dolby Atmos and Dolby 5.1 etc through Netflix and Disney Plus, etc. However, when I put in some Blu-Rays where I should be getting Dolby or Dolby Atmos, all I’m getting is Stereo PCM. At the moment, my Blu-Ray player (Sony Ultra HD) is connected to the TV via HDMI cable. The Sonos Arc is connected to the TV via another HDMI cable. Am I missing something? I’ve looked at the menu on the Blu-Ray player, and I can’t see any settings that might need changed. Does anyone know how to sort this?
Hi all. Has anyone got LPCM from DTS blu-rays using these pieces? I can get Dolby TrueHD and Atmos, but when I play a DTS disc all I get is “surround pcm.” I know the LG can’t play DTS, but I thought I’d be able to get 5.1 LPCM. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Hello all I would like advice on the positions of the arc and the two ones for atmos .the tv is wall mounted if I am wall mounting the arc is 4 inches enough clearance between the top of the arc and bottom of tv ? my sofa is against the rear wall and the ones are at ear height but against the wall to so I can get them behind me.how should I point the ones for best experience turned to face my sitting position or forward both pointing towards the tv screen ? Or to the centre of the room. I have used trueplay but the height sounds seem to be none existent.also do you have settings that best for the height and surround settings in the app?thabk you for your help
I realise there are previous threads about this, but I can’t find one which has not been closed for further comments, so I’m having to create a new thread to add my voice.Feature request Please enable Sonos Roams to act as rear surround speakers in a home theatre setup (or enable this on a future generation of the product if the current gen does not include necessary internal hardware).Why?1. Not everyone wants rear surrounds installed all the time. I only occasionally watch a movie where I want surrounds. It would be much easier for me to repurpose Sonos Roam’s from elsewhere in the house to serve as temporary surrounds for a few hours than it would with any other Sonos speaker. Furthermore, other companies seem to think there is a market for customers who want temporary battery powered surround speakers - e.g. see Philips Fidelio 7.1.2 and JBL Bar 5.1 / 9.1 / 800 / 1000. 2. Even for those who want surrounds installed all the time, I am expect there are some who would prefer to use sp
I have two Samsung Smart TVs each with one PlayBar connected. For at least the past five years I have been using the Samsung IR remotes that came with each TV to control the volume of the PlayBar connected to that TV.Yesterday, BOTH PlayBars stopped responding to the volume + button but not the volume - button on each remote.I have power cycled the TVs, PlayBars, and reconnected the remotes. The issue remains. The PlayBar will recognize the volume + button one time to connect but after that it does not respond to the volume + key.I find it strange that something like this would happen with two different systems at the same time.
I just received an ARC and am enjoying it but I have one nagging issue - when I play Spotify through my google TV, or directly through the sonos app, the music is very quiet. If I play it through the Xbox x Spotify app, it’s a good 20-30% louder. Am I missing something? I can just use my Xbox but the google tv is what I use the most. The Xbox shows up as Dolby digital 5.1, and the other two come up as stereo pcm - could that be why it’s louder on the Xbox? I’m really at a loss.
I just set up a new LG 77 inch C2 Oled with an Arc, Sub (G3) and 2 One SLs, but everything is showing up as Stereo PCM, whether from my Apple TV, Xbox Series X, or PS5. I’m new to Sonos (and LG), so I apologize if this is a stupid question.
I have the Arc + Sub + 2x Ones setup as a surround system. Which is great for TV. But for music I can’t for the life of me work out how to turn off the Arc soundbar so it doesn’t interfere with the stereo presence of the Ones + Sub.I’ve triedsetting Ones to “full” (not “ambient”) setting "Music Level" in "Surround Audio" to be +15But I can stil hear the Arc.Furthermore if I turn up the Ones to +15I have to pump the Sub to +15 AND the Sub still gets lost so I have to boost bass in EQ as well and then it sounds 'off' AND if I don't reset the Sub and bass EQ to 0 each time then the next time someone watches TV (think kids in the morning) the whole house shakes. AND I can still hear the Arc.So that's not workable.How do I get just the Ones in stereo + Sub for music playback? Surely I don't have to disconnect/reconnect the whole surrount system and re-do Trueplay each time I swap between listening to music and TV do I?? Please tell me I’m missing something!Thanks for your help everyone.
