SONY BRAVIA KDL-40XBR3 (2007 MODEL) PLAYBAR INCOMPATIBLE?
Hello, I recently purchased a Sonos Playbar and I am unable to get sound from my SONY BRAVIA KDL-40XBR3 (2007 MODEL.) This television features a digital output and I have disabled the speakers but there is still no sound. As a test, I connected the Playbar to a newer Sony TV and it worked perfectly.

New DISH remote and soundbari
I had to configure a new DISH network remote to my existing soundbar. The soundbar responds to the VOL + signal and increases the volume but does not recognize the VOL - . I can only decrease the sound by manually pressing the button on my soundbar.The old DISH remote worked fine ( until it broke and I had to get this new one). What is going on?
LG OLED - Sonos theater setup?
Seems like with the new LG OLED TV's you can't integrate sonos with the systems since they come with their own playbar. Will Sonos support these TV's in the future? Seems silly to have two wall bars just to get Sonos functionality. Unfortunate you can't use Sonos with these great TV's. TV's like this: http://www.lg.com/us/tvs/lg-OLED65W7P-oled-4k-tv
What is the maximum length of Digital Audio Cable with Playbar.
What is the maximum length of Digital Audio Cable that can be used with Sonos Playbar? The 5ft. cable that comes with the Sonos Playbar is not long enough for my setup, I run the cables behind my cabinet and behind the wall and up to the TV. It will need approximately 10 - 12 ft. run. And is there a Digital Audio Cable you that is compatible / or you would recommend?
TV 5.1 to connect ... new to sonos
Hey all, I am new to the Sonos community and just wanted to get some input on how to set up my home theater. I currently have a Samsung 4K TV sending surround to my home theater system via optical output consisting of soundbar, satellites and sub. I recently purchased a connect, as I want to integrate all of my rooms to the sonos system. My current plan is to run the TV optical out to a DAC, run the red/white RCA output into the sonos connect. Then to complete, run optical output from the sonos into the home theater system. I don't think that this will cause too much delay or cause any significant loss in audio quality. Does this sound like the appropriate way to run TV audio into the sonos system? If there is a better way please let me know. Also, will I be able to stream TV audio to other sonos speakers in different rooms with this setup? Thanks
HDMI inputs needed
I would be very pleased if Sonos basically took the AVR (audio visual receiver) question off the table by adding at least three HDMI inputs. They could really knock it out of the park if we could choose how to "scale" the input from HDMI to 1080p, or 2160p HDR 4k and such. I know a bit of a fantasy, but a receiver with power in does the same thing for around $700. Paradigm is coming out with a new soundbar that has HDMI and more according to CNET. Check here if you like. No I don't work for either of them. :Dhttps://www.cnet.com/products/paradigm-pw-soundbar/preview/
Best optical switch for playbar?
Hi could anyone help me with choosing a good optical switch to work with my playbar as so i can get the best out of my sky box,ps4,xbox one and apple tv as i believe I'm not getting the best out of my sons set up(playbar,sub,2xplay 1s)when the optical is connected to my tv and not the actual devices themselves. any ideas would be great.
Best Setup for Home Theater AND Stereo music
Hi, I am considering getting a Sonos Playbar so that I can orientate the TV and it's sound to either the lounge (primary consideration for sound quality) or the dining room (secondary) using a cantilever bracket on the wall between the two rooms with the Playbar hung below the TV on the bracket. If at all possible, I would also like to be able to consolidate and simplify my stereo system and associated AV receiver, speakers and wires into the mix too, so that I have one integrated system for both my Home Theater and (importantly) a great sounding stereo music system too. If anything, good quality stereo sound is more important than the Home Theater side of things for me. I have heard the Playbar on it's own and whilst it is great for TV, it is not strong enough for what I am looking for musically, it is improved by linking it with the Sub for a bit more oomph, but even after adding the Sub, it still does not give that proper stereo separation (wider sound stage) with the musi
Sony Bravia TV connection to Playbar
I have a Sony Bravia KDL 55 EX720 TV that I have been unable to connect successfully to the Playbar. The fibre optic cable has the red light emitting from the cord when I remove it from the Playbar. There are minimal settings on TV, leaving thinking there is a compatibility issue with Sony Bravia TV's and the SONOS Playbar. If I've missed a step or you're aware of similar issues let me know, thanks.
Running a Playbar as a stereo/mono speaker
Can you run the playbar as a play 1 style mono speaker i.e. turn of the sound processing for streamed music (for TV the surround/processing etc is fine). When streaming music to the playbar I find the sound processing on it makes a mess of the music so I'm looking for the playbar to act as a clean neutral speaker in a group.
XBox One S VS. Samsung K8500 for Bluray 5.1 DD coversion
Hi everyone! I was looking into buying a UltraHD Bluray for my house (that I also really want to use for regular blurays) and I was wondering which one is best / friendlier to convert DTS / DTS HD / DD+ / Atmos/ Etc... to DD in order to do 5.1 with my Sonos system. I currently have the Playbar, the SUB and two Play 1's on my family room and my TV (Sony x850c) can do DD5.1 pass-through. As of right now, all the devices I have (minus the PS3 and 4 if they have to convert DTS to DD) can pass / convert DD 5.1 to the TV via HDMI, so ideally (to husband proof my house) I was thinking on getting a device that could do the same (and to stop having to switch my PS4 / 3 over to optical to get surround sound with movies). The XBox One S sounds attractive because it also play games, but I was curious if it suffers from the same issues of than the PS3 / 4 have (no DTS conversion over HDMI), and how to know how good of a UltraHD Bluray player it is. And same with the K8500, I know is a gr
Mounting Playbar under a mounted 65 inch TV with 6 inches between the wall and front of TV.
Odd title aside I am curious if anyone has had any issues mounting the playbar under a large TV when the front of the TV and wall are approximately 6 inches apart. I know the speakers will be angling 45 degrees up in the position I am considering but will the space between the TV and wall create any distortion or be a sound quality issue? I plan to mount about 3-4 inches below the TV. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Using a non-sonos sub with a playbar
I'm looking at getting a playbar but already have a powered sub and a sonos connect and wondered if I could connect the powered sub to the connect and then set that up as the sub as part of the home cinema set up. Is that possible or can you only use the Sonos sub?
Sound Bar stereo or surround
I'm thinking of purchasing a sonos sound bar and was curious about the sound input options available. My dvd player gives me the option to play stero sound or 5.1 sound. Does the sound bar work better with one or the other. Does it make a difference in the sound played by choosing one or the other. Does the sound bar simulate surround sound or do you have to buy more speakers to achieve that surround sound feeling?
Connecting Sonos to Samsung TV, Blu ray player and Sky Q box
Hi I'm thinking of ugrading my tv and dvd player to a Samsung UE65K8000 TV and Samsung UBD-K8500. I already have a Sub, Play 1 x 2 and Sonos Playbar linked to my Sky Q box (can't connect old Pioneer TV direct) and Apple TV (gen 1) using an optical manual switch. My question is should I connect my Playbar directly to the new TV or still through the Sky Q box - are there any advantages/disadvantages either way. Also, I'm thinking I can get rid of the Apple TV as Netflix, etc is on the new Samsung TV. Can anyone advise if I am missing anything that this new setup would not give me. Thanks
