I have my Sonos PlayBar connected via an optical connection to my LG EF950V OLED TV. I'm having an issue where the sound from the TV stops, like someone has put it on mute. The only way to resolve that issue is to switch the TV off and back on again. This is has gotten worse with the latest update and I now sometimes lose sound when I change the TV channel. Sometimes it comes back again after a few seconds, other times I have to switch the TV off and on again to resolve it. My PlayBar details just now are; PLAYBAR: Home Cinema Version: 7.4 (build 37244160) Hardware Version: 188.8.131.52-2 Audio In: Dolby Digital 2.0 My TV details are; Software Version: 04.25.56
Recently I upgraded my Sonos to the latest software(Privacy update) successfully but noticing some performance degrade when I stream music. Especially SUB. I used to play the same song before and the base was sharp and crispy. I did not change any settings . Just wanted to know if there is any known issue. How can I make sure there is no issue with my SUB performance. Thank you Manoj
I currently own a Samsung UN75MU8000F and have my Playbar, Connect:Amp, and two Play:1s set up in my family room. The Playbar + Play:1's are set up as a "surround sound" set up on sonos system. When playing normal TV, my surround sound works perfectly (aka all three speakers play sound). However, the moment I turn on one of my TV Apps from the smart TV's menu (i.e., Netflix, HBO, Amazon), no sound whatsoever comes out of any of my sonos speakers. At the moment the only way I can watch those apps with sound is to switch to using my actual "tv speakers" rather than the Audio Out / Optical option (i.e., the output that plays my sonos speakers). Any idea what would cause this issue specifically when switching to using my TV apps / how to fix is? Worth noting that before I installed the Play:1's and set up "surround sound" I had no issues with any of this...my plabar worked just fine no matter if I was watching regular TV or using HBO / Netflix / Amazon, etc. Any help would be
Just updated to v7.4, and now with the Netflix app and also watching T.V. The sound has been dropping out. I have an LG UH8500 set on the Audio Out (opticle/HDMI Arc), when it drops out I can switch it to LG sound sync (opticle) and the sound will kick back on but I can only get stereo and not 5.1. Please let me know what I can do. Thanks in advance. Like (0) Quote More
Is it possible with the playbase? I just set mine up and used the satellite dish remote but would also like to be able to adjust volume using my lg magic remote. I found instructions on how to set up the infrared remote but I don't want to use it exclusively. Just wanted to confirm that only one remote can be configured. The instructions say "only one remote can be configured at a time" but does this mean that only one an be used after configuration?
Since the upgrade to Version: 7.4 (build 37244160) I have lost sound from Netflix on my smart TV. Other souches all work, but netflix has no sound, occassionally if I turn it up and down and fiddle it will come on. I need to restart the TV to get sound on netflix. Is there some setting that has changed?
Sonos isn't consistently recognizing audio from Roku. My setup is a playbar, sub and two PLAY 3s. It's been working til now but either the latest update or a thunderstorm last night has affected the system. Netflix sound works, but HBO Now and Amazon show up as "unsupported audio." Files a diagnostic. Number 7774787. Please help.
I'm having issues with my LG oled B6 (running webOS) and the native YouTube app. When I play a video, the audio doesn't play most of the time. If I reload the video, audio does sometimes kick in, but it's inconsistent. If I switch the audio to LG SoundSync (optical) then the audio plays fine. But standard optical (Optical/HDMI AMC). Wassup wit dat then?
I have been using a playbase with a couple of play:1's for surround for a few months, and after the latest update the playbase disappeared from the controller. When i tried to add everything back it didn't seem to want to connect to the Wifi. I factory reset all the speakers in the surround setup and connected them all by cable and reconnected them all through the controller. When i try to configure the wifi and select my network and key it just says "wireless problem". Now I feel like ive tried everything, but it just wont connect. All the other speakers in my house work just fine, and if i disconnect the surround speakers they all work fine aswell. I've submitted a diagnostic: 7772359
Hello, My old system had a reciever. I could enable advanced surround sound and my 2.1 would play voice on all 5 speakers and the left right and left rare would play the left sound and the right front and right rare would play the right. Is this possible with a 5.1 setup with bonos with the bar and 2 speakers? Is there a setting or way to do it? I did ready this might be a possible solution but am not sure. I have not purchased this yet just doing research. Thanks! Inside your Room Settings for the PLAYBAR and PLAYBASE are two additional options. Music playback which allows you to choose between two settings for the surround speakers: Ambient: Default option; subtle, ambient sound. Full: Enables louder, full range stereo sound. Selecting Full has the surround speakers playing stereo along with the PLAYBAR when you have a music source playing, this has no effect when playing TV.
Is there a way to switch from Music to TV, or vice versa, using a remote control (i.e. outside the Sonos app). In our Living Room with a Vizio display and Sonos Playbar we are often listening to music while the TV is on. At times, we'd like to quickly switch to the TV's Audio and grabbing the remote would simply be more convenient than finding an iPhone and firing up to Sonos app. Is there a way to program a remote to control the Sonos Playbar Audio source?
Configuration is a Playbase and a pair of Play 1 surrounds. Audio drops from surrounds on occasion while playing from Spotify, or TV. Diagnostic 7765999 submitted shortly after most recent event. White light flashes on Play 1 but Playbase continues to play. Setup is wireless. Router furthest from Playbase (10m), Play 1s are closer. Any thoughts?
I have connected my sound bar to a new MU7000W tv and have found that the volume button on the TV remote does not work. I have looked at other posts on these forums and have not found a fix for the Samsung MU7000W model. Does any one have any ideas?
So I bought two play 1's and set them up as rear surrounds in a 5.0 system with my play base. This seemed like a good idea in theory, but now I feel like I wasted my money. Comcast is hit and miss with DD 5.1 content, my Nintendo switch is only going to do 2.0 (LPCM), and so my htpc is my only real use for these new speakers. I know I can pair the rears as a stereo set instead of as surrounds, but I'd like to keep the 5.1 ability when I can utilize it. Is there any way to switch back and forth between these two (play 1's as surrounds and as stereo) quickly? The only way I know how is to unpair everything and start setting things up from scratch. Too bad there wasn't just a button to do it similar to choosing the "full" setting for music playback. I wish when there isn't DD content, the speakers would do more than sit there wasting space and electricity. It would be nice if they at least mirrored the stereo input or Sonos was able to synthesize 5.1 as so many other home theater sys
Hi! Pretty recently bought the Sonos Playbar. In general I'm really happy with it. Absolutely great sound from a single soundbar and I will definitely continue my setup with some play 1's and a sub. However, I have one issue. Background sound, like ambient sound (wind, birds chirping away, etc) are extremely low. I can barely hear them and sometimes are non-existant. When i switch back to the internal tv speakers I hear all ambient sound fine, but I really wish I could hear it through the playbar instead since the difference in sound quality is HUGE. Any ideas on what could be wrong / what I could do to improve this? My Tv is an LG UH850-V. Cheers!
