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.
Have TV setup with Denon AVR 3700 receiver which has Klipsch speakers also have Sonos setup though out rest of the house. Want to be able to play sound from TV setup to Sonos. Have a Sonos Port that is setup to play sound through Denon to Klipsch. Essentially trying to do the opposite. Play whatever receiver is pushing to Klipsch speakers to Sonos setup. Do I use the line-in ports on Sonos Port? Then which port on the back of Denon do I use. Speaker ports on the bottom left in white are all used.
Not sure if this is the best place to ask, but I added a couple of Sonos Ones (Gen 1 and SL) to my Beam (Gen 1) today for surround sound with my LG C8 OLED. The Beam is connected via Arc. Built in TV’s apps only. It’s working great for most things, some movies on Netflix sounded fantastic. Tried some demos on YouTube that were good to. But it doesn’t work with Amazon Video, even though the videos I tried all state they are 5.1 in the info and Sonos app report it as being 5.1. Nothing at all from the rear L/R Ones, just the Beam. Any known issues with Amazon video or this TV? Anything I can try? Am I missing something?
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?
Hi friends, I can’t get the Dolby Atmos effect but not sure it is a hardware problem caused by Sonos or Apple TV 4K, or the software problem cased by the Infuse Pro 7 app on tvOS. So, just share my situations here to see if anyone else facing the same problems with me. DevicesAll the latest models of Sonos & Apple with the latest firmware.Sonos ARC * 1Play 5 *2Apple TV 4K - 2021 versionPlayer: Infuse Pro 7Film source: Blu-ray Images on NAS (Synology DS920+) ProblemSound strange if Apple TV 4K Sound Effect is setup to Dolby Atmos and use Infuse Pro 7 to play the Blu-ray image on the NAS. (Or other video file with audio like AC3 and etc.) Problems: The DIALOGUE can NOT be heard; Sound is strange and the volume is low. The problems occurs in the Apple TV 4K audio is connected through HDMI eARC. (NO problem through AirPlay. And we know that Dolby Atmos can not play through AirPlay) If we turn off the Dolby Atmos in Apple TV 4K, the audio format change to Dolby Digital 5.1, everything i
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!!
I’m expecting my LG Gallery OLED next week. I’ll be mounting it on the wall, as well as my Sonos Arc under it on the wall.If you’re familiar with the Gallery line of TVs, they have a custom wall bracket as well as channels to run the cables behind the TV that allow it to be mounted flush against the wall, so that it literally has a depth of 1 inch or so, looking like a painting on the wall. Similar to the Samsung Frame.I know Sonos recommends that the Arc be mounted 5.5 inches or more below a TV so the sound from the upward firing speakers is not impeded. However, I’d like to mount mine more like 3-4 inches below the TV.I can’t imagine that a TV with 1 inch depth could block the upward firing speakers right?Seems like I should be fine. Agreed?Thanks for any opinions.
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!
Hi,Had a Beam connected for about 1 year with no issues, always turn the TV off with the remote ( Sony Bravia)On turning it on this morning I didn't have any volume, on checking noticed it was set at zero so just turned it up, thinking nothing of it, upon turning the TV on this evening the same thing happened, I only have the Beam connected and that's via HDMI Arc.Also no Alexa.Any ideas ?Thanks.
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).
We have a new Sonos Beam (Gen 2) hooked up to our Samsung Smart TV. It works fine, but it makes a noise that sounds like a DVD player when a disc loads, kind if that spinning, wind-up sound. This happens when nothing is even playing (TV or music), as well as when when Pandora or my music library is changing songs. Is that normal? It’s kind of bothersome. Something I’ve thought about is that I THINK this happens mainly when I’m casting from my laptop to the TV. Also when I’m playing my music library, which actually comes from my laptop. Is that possible, and if so, is that to be expected?
I have a really nice new 65” LG OLED and I want to add some nice surround speakers to. I do not have the option to run wires so I decided to add to my Sonos collection and pick up a Beam 2. I likely would have bought an Arc if they were available right now. My question is this...should I order an Arc or should I just add two 1 SL’s to the back of my room to compliment the Beam 2 in the front of the room? I will use this setup for music sometimes but primary for watching movies.
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
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 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!
