The Problem:I have been trying to add a separate headset to be able watch TV later at night. I bought a and tried to add two different headsets, one BT and the latest one has its own base that BT back to the headset and the base connects to the TV via Optical output. The issue that is occurring is that when I select the Audio as Optical, it momentarily will turn on and then turn off with the Sonos System turning back onI have set this System up on (2) different TV’s which leads me to conclude a control issue with the SONOS Sound Bar itself. First the system:Sonos - Beam (Gen 2), Sonos - One (Gen 2)(2ea), Sonos - Sub (Gen 3) Connected to: LG - 77" Class C1 Series OLEDThere must be a way to allow another external sound system, ie headset, to work and put Sonos into ‘stand-by mode’Any help would be appreciated.
Hi!I have the following situation.I am in a house with Eero Pro mesh network (total of 4 units, so good coverage).My Arc and Sub are connected to Wifi and have been working with a surround setup well in the past.The house came with built in-wall speakers that I would like to connect as surround speakers to the set up. The TV/speakers are on the 2nd floor, but the cables of the built-in wall speakers go all the way to the basement.The Amp worked without a problem independently. Hower, when I tried to add the Amp as surrounds to the setup, I got the error message “There was a problem adding your surrounds. Check the network connection and make sure your products are powered on”. I have the suspicion that the issue is as follows: The Arc wants to connect via a direct Wifi connection to the Amp, but the Amp is too far away and therefore out of reach to create the connection.Would it help if I tried to run my Sonos setup on SonosNet instead of Wifi (I have 8 devices, so should get ample
Hi im going to purchase a Sonos arc for my LG tv 49UH661V and I’m hesitant on getting because I’m afraid the picture and the sound will not be in sync when using the sky Q box. I have read that this is something that cannot be fixed and I also seen my brothers tv at the weekend and he has the arc and it’s not in sync with tv which makes it very frustrating and he has tried all but failed to solve.ive a Sonos sound bar for 5 years and have no problems and want to upgrade to the arc but I’m afraid to spend the money and it not to be in synccould you please let me know if my tv will have the same problem or if there is a solution many thanks
Hi folks. To set the context:- moved into new home. Existing sub reset to factory.- new home installed 3 amps each running 2 stereo for different zones (2 are sonance 1 jensen) with an arc.- running amps hardwired and sonos arc is wireless. 1. My soundbar is not able to set 1 amp and 1 bass for a dedicated home theatre setup. I've tried numerous variations from resetting each device and reconnecting to no avail. Has anyone experience an issue whereby the soundbar needs to be hardwired and so does amp and sub? Or should I be able to have a home theatre setup on 1 zone with the arc wired, surrounds via amp wired, and wireless sub? Or is it possible to have wireless sonos arc, wired rear amp surrounds, and wireless sub.Thanks Sunny
First of all I have an Arcana in this loop. But everything was working fine until it quit working fine. So today I unplugged Sonos Arc HDMI cable from the TV and the Sonos Arc, unplugged power cables from the wall for the TV & the Sonos Arc. Waited like 5 minutes. Plugged the HDMI back into the Sony Arc port and then the Sonos Arc. Powered up the tv and the Sonos Arc. Sound from TV to Sonos ARC worked. Unplugged the Sonos Arc HDMI from the Sony TV arc port and plugged it back into the Arcana. Went to the Sonos iPhone App, System, Arc + the surround sounds, including Sub, TV Setup, Let’s get your Sonos Arc SL connected to your TV, Connected cable to Sony Arc and sometimes it will go to the next screen but only to give me a failure something like not connected. I’m befuddled. Everything was working and now it’s not.
Hi, when the Sub is connected to AMP you're able to adjust the cross over frequency which is great if you have full range speakers.I've got mine in an Arc and in ceiling rear speaker surround system however when the Sub is in a surround system, you lose the feature. I'm assuming this is down to pairing with the Arc which creates a fixed cross over and generally optimising for surround. However if you're playing music you're stuck with this cross over.My suggestion is to add a crossover adjustment feature for the Sub that operates only when music is being played. This would be similar to how you can adjust how much the rear speakers play music when compared to the Arc. Any chances of that being implemented?
Hi,I've tried searching, but everything is linked to getting a Nvidia shield or Roku box...Can I use the Sonos Arc (without hdfury arcana) direct from a smart TV without eARC?I know it won't be lossless Dolby Atmos, but will it be 'OK'? Or is the Sonos Arc a waste of money without eARC?Or shall I just invest in an Nvidia shield (even though it doesn't do anything different to my smart TV - other than eARC support)Appreciate the advice!
Buongiorno a tuttiAvevo questa domanda se aderisco al programma di aggiornamento con i relativi ticket di sconto,sono obbligato a restituire i prodotti vecchi? Nel caso non fosse obbligatorio i prodotti continueranno a funzionare regolarmente e riceveranno gli aggiornamenti software che verranno rilasciati?Grazie
would love it if there was a feature where the led(s) on the arc would change color when it is receiving an atmos track so you can tell without going in to the app. this could also be expanded by adding different colors for different soundformats. example: blue = atmos, yellow = dolby digital , white = stereo
I use Alexa via my Arc. I always want it on. Unfortunately it regularly gets disabled by my dog or when it is cleaned because of the touch control. Is there any way to retain Alexa functionality but stop this button turning it off? Or must I disable it and buy a separate Alexa device?!Weirdly disabling touch controls for the Arc doesn’t disable the mic touch control. I even tried electricians tape over the button but it doesn’t block the finger tap being detected.
HiI have an Amp connected via optical adapter that I use for HT purposes with a pair of Ones as surrounds and a pair of passive speakers. Content comes from an Apple TV 4K.The problem is that frequently (several times per evening) the remote (I use the Apple TV remote) stops being able to change volume. The only way I could come up with to restore this function, is to repeat the TV setup in the Sonos app. This quite time consuming of course and not a good user experience.Is this a common issue, does anyone know how to avoid this, maybe an easier way to fix or to reestablish the remote functionality?
Hello, my series one x is getting delivered tomorrow, I am currently using a one x hooked up to my playbar, there is audio lag when I hook up my playbar to my tv via optical cable and my one x is hooked up to the tv via hdmi, the lag is eliminated when I hook the playbar up to the xbox directly with the optical cable, but the series one x doesn't have an optical port, has anybody run into any issues like this or have any solutions?
I have a Beam, sub and two SL Ones as left and right surrounds connected to my television. Works fine until I switch to Spotify and use the speakers together with my Play 5 and Move. When I go back to television, the Beam works fine but the sub and surrounds are silent. But seem to be showing as online. I’ve fixed this in the past by rebooting the router. Obviously, I don’t want to have to do that every time. My diagnostic is 601964715.
I have changed my tv and before I used to be able to control the surround sound setup by one slide control, now it seems to be in 2. The paired speakers and then the beam and sub. Also it mentions on the help part of the app to setup by selecting home theatre, I cannot find that on the app.
