Hi everyone,Here is my setup Playbar - Sub - 2x Play:1Here is my issue :I run Trueplay calibration every goes well and calibration complete. I can enjoy the sound of my TV calibrated as long as home theater does not automatically switch off. Once I switch back on the TV, sound is extremely low (I have to put it to 50% to ear any sound) and stutters very badly (nothing can be understand from a dialog for example). If I reboot my Playbar during movie is playing, sound will come back but if I press “pause” or switch off and back on the TV, same issue appears. The only fix is to erase Trueplay calibration and reboot the system. I search everywhere online and nobody seems to have a similar issue. It’s a shame as Trueplay really improved the surrounding on my system!Does anyone have an idea please? Thanks
Surround sound issue.
HI, I have a play bar and 2 play 1’s set on my living room TV. I use optical feed from the TV direct to the play bar. we have a problem that intermitently the sound changes from surround to what seem like music ambient play setting, so the vocal audio etc is sent to all three speakers, then at a random time ti will revert back to normal surround. So damn annoying!!! :-)Any ideas would be greatly welcomed!!! pleeeeeeeasecheers ALan
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!
Benq Remote not pairing with Sonos Arc or Playbar
Hi, I have a BenQ x3000i projector connected to my Arc and I would like to control the volume using the remote. However, it will not pair. I have seen this issue on the forum previously, but the answer did not help. Previously, The Arc will pair with my Firestick remote, but not the BenQ which is an IR remote. So, I know that the Arc is capable of pairing through the projector, but not with this particular remote. Any clues. In the past, I have had no trouble pairing remotes, just this particular one. Thank you for any help. John
Owners of Beam, should I upgrade?
Hi allHaving switched to Sonos, My collection of Logitech squeezeboxes has been sold. I now have a Sonos unit, which I adore, but I'm itching to upgrade to a beam. The question is if I will detect a noticeable improvement over my Yamaha YHT S400, which is ten years old. Side-by-side listening comparisons will be challenging, if not impossible.I appreciate it.
Home Theater Solution
Hi friends, I have an existing 9.1 room wired with inceiling speakers and a traditional AVR. I want to use a ARC for my front stage, then use 2 amps to push surround speakers. Is this possible? So Channels 1-3 will be on the ARC and channels 4-9 will be on AMPs. Can this be done software wise with the Sonos logic?
Ray randomly going on ute
I have just recently moved to my SONOS system which is superb. I do have one issue as I have a Ray connected to 2 One SL speakers and Trueplay set up. A couple of times now it goes onto mute. When I tap the Play on the Ray it comes back to life. Any idea why this happens and how do you deliberately set it to mute as I cannot see any instruction to do that?
Arc+Surrounds: actual volume much higher than TV output bar
Recently the TV volume output of my Arc + Surrounds has been way higher than my TV's volume control bar would indicate. It is such that when my TV volume is set to '1', it is actually pretty loud. Turning my TV one step down to '0' mutes the TV entirely. My TV volume goes up to 100. So now my TV goes from Mute to Loud to Very Loud to Apocalypse Loud.This is a recent issue and I don't know what has changed. In the past I used to set my TV volume between 10-13 for casual watching, and 15-20 when I wanted loud audio. Occasionally when I really wanted to piss off my neighbours or impress my friends, I'd crank it to 20-25. My Music and TV Surrounds are set to 0. My volume limitter is off. I just want the TV output bar to better reflect the volume, and give me a some wiggle room on the low level. Is there a way to calibrate this? Perhaps related- my turntable & Port audio has also been a lot LOWER recently.
sonos Amp not connecting
Hi all, Since upgrading to a 2.4/5ghz auto switching router we had issues with our system and not been able to connect to it at all - despite the devices all being visible on the network. The easy fix was to add a sonos boost to the system which fixed the issues with the two sonos ones used as rear surrounds. The amp however remains an issue, the app can find it but it simply doesn't add the device including when connecting via eirhernet. Sonos support have been no help at all with this issue so hopefully the community can provide a fix?
Arc cycles on and off when switching HDMI sources
I have three sources into the Arc (Apple TV, Cable box, TiVo antenna box) and output is to an OLED LG TV and am using a Logitech Elite remote with hub. Most of the time all is well. Sometimes when I switch sources, the source cycles on and off (video and sound) about once every second. If I turn everything off, it fixes it and all is well again. It happens most often when switching to the Tivo box but not always. Diagnostic= 1356345119
Add Playbar to Beam?
Hey all! Got a new TV and wanted Airplay & volume control to work so I bought a Beam to replace the Playbar from my old TV setup. New TV working great with a Beam + Sub + 2 old Play 1’s for surround. ✅ All good.Question: If I “group” the old Playbar to the room (as configured above), will the Playbar improve or detract from the 5.1 surround sound?Yeah, I know I could/should just try it but I’m away from home and wanted to ask the sound geeks first. Thoughts?
90 degree mains connector
Hi. I am mounting my Playbar on the wall and would like the wiring to be as discreet as possible. I was originally going to use a ninety degree connector for the figure of eight mains cable but now realise that will not work as the socket on the Playbar is recessed. Anyone found a neat solution to this? Any help hugely appreciated.
Connect to existing Ceiling speaker with Arc, Sub and Ones
Hi all, I recently moved into a house with existing wired ceiling speakers right above the TV unit and I already own an ARC, SUB and two Ones as surround. Is it possible to hook two speakers to the SONOS system? Would that be an overkill for what I already have? Thanks
Issue adding Play:1 to Playbase in Surround
I can not add anymore my two standalone Play:1 speakers to my Playbase as surround speakers. My Playbase is connected via Ethernet. My Play:1 are WiFi connected. After the surround wizard the app shows me an error than not all speakers could be added and I can do a retry. But if I just swipe down the error msg it shows me both Play:1 speakers as added. In fact only one is added to my Playbase and the other not. In Trueplay calibration wizard only one Play:1 Speaker and Playbase is playing the test sound. The ohter is quiet.Even after a full factory reset of all speakers. Same behavior.But my two Play:1 speakers can be used as Stereo Speakers, this works fine.What is wrong here?Diagnostic # 1265119658
Surround sound with a small tv
Thought I would share my experience using a 5.1 system with a 32” tv.Living in a smaller home, I’ve learned to use visual cues to help the space feel generous, but I really wanted to have an immersive experience. Limited to a 32” tv because of all the art & stuff on the walls, I bought a 4k Samsung tv (not a lot of choices), then added a beam/2. Then added 2 one st’s for surround and a sub mini.The result is remarkable. Adding sound adds so much space with a small tv! With dwellings becoming smaller for many good reasons, sound really does help the space feel fuller. A yet relatively unexplored benefit for Sonos.
Sonos Beam to TV connection
Hi. I have had a sonos beam for around 8 weeks now and it did work perfectly. The beam keeps intermittently connecting and disconnecting to the tv.It is connected to the tv via an hdmi lead into the hdmi arc port in the tv. I have tried powering everything And reconnecting, i have tried 3 different hdmi leads (which all work on other products fine). I have tried wireless headphones to ensure the tv sound works ok. Has anyone come across this issue before and could help? Thanks
don´t works controller Panasonic TX-43LX650E Android TVTM with Sonos
I just bought a Panasonic TX-43LX650E Android TVTM and I can’t get the remote control to run my SONOS system. Is there a solution or is it preferable to buy another controller? If I need to buy another controller, any advice on what command to buy from Amazon to manage TV and Sonos? Thanks
