Hi! Playbar connected to Samsung tv. No real issues for several years since new. Suddenly the volume increases to max automatically. Whenever I press almost any button on Samsung remote this happens. I’ve done complete Wi-Fi reset. Tv reset. Remote reset. Playbar reboot and reset. No fix yet. Can anyone help? Thank you!!
I like many people had my Playbar break because of a cheap component - the toslink broke. YouTube has a video on how to install anew toslink but you do need some electronics skills to do that. You would think Sonos would have had a hdmi option but that has already been discussed. So I took the credit and bought the Arc which does Atmos and I am very impressed. Except I cannot use trueplay because my iPad is too new! Anyhow I can now pair my Arc with my Playbar if I want and have two sound bars for hearing what’s on the TV. Or you can use the Playbar in any room. You need to ‘reset’ the Playbar first.
I have some limitations on how I can run cables to my TV. I can connect a Sonos AMP, but not a Sonos ARC due to space limitations. Is it possible to connect a Sonos AMP to a TV via HDMI ARC, and then stream TV audio from the Sonos AMP to the Sonos ARC?
This might be a stupid question, but I am pretty new to all of this. I have a Sonos beam with the woofer and two Sonos ones in a basement set up. Is there any way that I can create a room for just the one speaker that is back by the bar area? Ideally I would like to play music on that after the kids have gone to bed and not have the whole surroundsound system blasting music and keeping them all up. Or is that speaker permanently tied to the basement set up that I currently have and that is all I can do with it? thanks!!
Hi!!I’ve been a fan of B&W and Sonos. For various reasons, and from the financial perspective. I want to improve the sound of my existing setup, which is the Sonos Amp + Sonos/Sonance In-Ceiling speakers.So I’m thinking if I can add a pair of bookshelf speakers B&W 606 S2 to my existing setup. Wondering if anyone have tried this?
I have an LG UN9000 tv with a Panasonic UB150 4k player and the Beam (Gen 2). For the life of me, I cannot get anything but Stereo PCM to play from blu ray discs that have a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack. Does anyone know the optimal settings for my blu ray player and/or TV that can help me get DTS Surround? I tried every possible combination of player settings (changing from Bitstream to PCM) and TV settings (making sure the HDMI input is also set to PCM like the player). Thanks in advance for anything to help!
Salve, ho rilevato che la soundbar Sonos Arc, collegata ad una tv Samsung del 2020 ne prende il controllo dell’uscita audio. Nella fattispecie se volessi utilizzare le cuffie bluetooth oppure l’audio proprio della tv, il sistema in automatico commuta l’uscita sull’hdmi della soundbar.Ho sentito la Samsung che dopo un’ora di chat mi ha detto che il problema è dato dalla soundbar che manda continui output alla tv per deviare l’audio sull’hdmi rendendo impossibile l’utilizzo delle altre uscite a meno di disattivare l’anynet (rendendo impossibile l’uso della soundbar con telecomando) o staccando proprio l’hdmi quando servono le cuffie ad esempio (assurdo).
Hi all. I have purchased the Sonos Arc and Sub, and now I bought the Sonos IKEA Symfonisk Picture Frame. However, aesthetically I don't think I want two Symfonisks, but rather would like to use one Symfonisk and one Sonos One SL for surround speakers.Is this possible? And if yes, is it recommended? Or would it be preferable to use two of the same speakers for surround sound?
Just posting this for those who may experience a similar problem.I replaced my Sonos Beam with a Sonos Arc.My typical TV viewing is FUBO, Netflix, Prime, and YouTube. We mostly watch FUBO during the day for news and sports and the other services for movies and series at night.The Beam was connected to a Samsung QN90A HDMI eARC port. The Beam worked fine.When I connected the Sonos Arc to the same port, FUBO audio was cutting out for 5-10 seconds every minute or so. Netflix and the rest were fine.I spent two hours on the phone with Sonos with 3 different techs and got nowhere. They tried, but in the end, did not fix the issue. One solution they had me do was to connect the Sonos ARC via an Ethernet cable to my router. I complied but as I thought about, it made no sense.I finally solved the issue by changing the setting on the TV so that the HDMI ARC port was set to regular ARC and not eARC. If I watch anything but FUBO, I switch it back to eARC to get the full sound.I contacted FUBO
HP Pavillion Windows 10 Laptop will not play audio when connected to LG Smart TV with HDMI cable with Sonos beam connected to HDMI2 ARC
My HP Pavillion Laptop will not play audio through the HDMI cable to the LG OLED TV since we connected the Sonos beam to HDMI ARC. Video is unaffected. Audio will play very briefly and stop. We used to use a different sound bar that worked perfectly well but it was connected through HDMI and optical. Can anyone help?Thanks!
I currently bought a home theater system separately (waiting on the arc to get here still) but the rear speaker are too far (My house has an open two story living/dining/kitchen space) so added two picture frames in the middle of the two rooms to, what I hoped would, fill the space. Now I am reading Sonos wouldn’t allow more the two Sonos Ones that come with the home theater system. Is this true or could I add the Sonos Ikea frames as part of my surround sound system as I hoped? It would be a bummer if I couldn’t. I loved how seemless Sonos has been but this is a major flaw for me and the size of space I am trying to fill.
Hi, I have a Sonos Arc the for some reason is not playing Atmos. I have a Nvidia shield pro connected to a HD fury Arcana and that is connected to the arc and to the TV. I have a pro account on Netflix but in the sonos app it shows Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 and in Netflix the Atmos logo appear. What I'm doing wrong?
Hello All, First let me apologize if this scenario has been posted before but i cannot seem to find it. I have a Sony OLED A90J set up with a sonos arc+ sub and surrounds, using the tv apps and directv box and it works great. However in the same room i have a benq projector, on an older bose system, it is also running a an amazon firebox and another mini set top box from direct tv. What i want to do is get rid of the bose system and someone toggle from tv to projector with both of them taking advantage of the arc + surround. is this possible?
Hi there! Just got a Beam. I understand to get sound to it from my fire stick I need to split the signal and send to the projector and then the optical/hdmi converter. I’ve never used an optical cable before and I can’t figure out if the long cable needed should have two different ends (a male/female) or the same end?
Hello everyone and well found, I hope you are all well ... given the period …Greetings from Rome and Italy :-)I have a home theater system consisting of Arc and One SL. Now I would like to add Sub Gen. 3I have a question, certainly trivial for you ...Regarding the Sub Gen 3, what is the ideal location for its installation. Is it better "front" (but on the side of the TV), or can you put "side"? Or "oblique"?I know that with the Trueplay setup then it fits the room acoustics, but I would like what the guideline or recommended is.I made some screenshots on the fly numbered from 1 to 4 (forgive the banality, but you should guess the purpose anyway ...), in order to facilitate the discussion to understand what you are referring to Again, I know that the configuration via the App helps, but I would like to know on a technical level what is the ideal position that this Sub should more or less respect in your opinion of Sonos.Thanks a lot for the support!
