I received an email from Sonos informing me that Trueplay was now available for Playbar if I had version 7 of the software which I do (I have 7.0.1 on all my iOS devices). When I went to check the apps Trueplay wasn't there for the Playbar. I checked online updates in the app and it says "up to date". Just wondering if there was another update coming or, was Trueplay pulled from availability?
Hi all I'm about to wall mount my playbar underneath the TV. Due to the design of the wall mount cables are not easily concealed. In the mounting instructions it recommends to leave 1" of space between the bottom of the tv and the playbar. My question is, is there a potential issue in mounting it flush to the tv? I have an LED tv, and by mounting the playbar flush to the tv the cables would be concealed behind the tv. Will the speaker interfere or damage the tv in any way? Magnetic field for example? Thx
Hi Everyone, I just invested in a Sonos 5.1 System which i am feeding with my 2011 Mac Mini and into my rather dated Samsung LA40C530 using HDMI. Although the system sounds great and works just fine i am not able to get 5.1DD. It is just outputting in Stereo. I have many threads on here about how this can be corrected, but what is the best option for this setup? Buy a new TV? Buy an Octava switch? or something else? or even am i doing something wrong? I just want to make sure that what i buy is the right kit to get the 5.1 sound up and running with this setup.
I currently have in-ceiling speakers connected to a Sonos Connect in a closet upstairs mainly for music...I'm wondering, if I connect my TV to a Sonos Playbar, will I be able to wirelessly connect to the Sonos Connect playing the in ceiling speakers so that the TV sound comes out both the play bar and the inceiling speakers? Thanks!
I use the Oppo BDP-103d to upscale my Directv 1080i output to 1080p. I am using the optical digital out from the Panasonic TC-P65ZT60 that has the Oppo, Apple TV and PS4 in the HDMI ports. I use the Roku streaming stick on the Oppo so if I need one more to the screen I have another HDMI port. My concern here is that does the Panasonic TC-P65ZT60 actually pass through the 5.1 signals from the HDMI inputs from it. I have the Sonos Playbar, Sub, connect amp and two ceiling surrounds set up. I am trying to get as close as i can to 5.1 without the wires and receiver set up. I guess I could use output from the Oppo unit but them I get nothing from my Ps4 without my headset on.
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.

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?
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 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?
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
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/
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.
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
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.
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.
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
