HiI’m moving into a new flat that has Virgin Media fibre that will be using the Virginmedia 360 Box. I have read a post online (not here) that they had a problem with audio synching and their Beam, that was different for each TV channel so couldn’t be sorted by adjusting the audio delay. The suggested fix in the replies was to turn off Dolby which obviously loses quality and isn’t great.Has anyone else had any problems? Or better still is anyone else using their Beam with a Virgin Media 360 Box with no audio problems?I’ve got a Beam and x2 Sonos One SL’sThanksTom
Hi guys, sorry for the medium long read and probably lack of correct terminology.. Since the coronavirus pandemic started a lot of (live) music is being streamed over various channels. When I stream this to my TV I obviously do this to enjoy the music, along with the visuals provided. My 5.1 set then only pushes the sound via the beam, with only certain frequencies or sounds popping up from the back speakers. While actually playing music from a streaming service like Spotify, the sound is sublime, but when listening to music from a video or tv this way, it’s quite disappointing. I know there are more topics addressing the same technical issue, with a logic explanation that when you watch ‘tv’ it’s not needed to have full stereo when the tv decoder or whatever is used also distributes 5.1, which makes sense. But the need from me as a user, and maybe others has changed over the past year; looking for great sound when streaming live or recorders music content from whatever source. I woul

So I have a Sonos Amp plugged into my LG CX and whenever I wake the system up with my Apple TV 4K i notice that the volume buttons on my ATV4K remote don’t change the volume on my Amp. If I go to the settings on my ATV4K and change them from IR back to HDMI control the Amp will light up green and recognize it. I have TV auto play set to on. Anyone know why the Amp would have trouble? It worked fine with my Beam every time.
First off, I am a novice when it comes to AV systems, etc. I just moved into a new house with a large wall mounted Samsung TV and a Sonos Playbar. There are 2 wired speakers (currently not in use) in the ceiling in the back end of our TV viewing area. There are also have 2 wired speakers outside. I recently purchased a Yamaha RX-V6A Reciever, thinking I could run ALL of my speakers through it. I thought I could run the TV, Sonos Playbar and rear ceiling speakers on one Zone of the receiver, and my outdoor speakers on the other zone. I have recently been told that the Sonos Playbar will not work with this set up. Is this true, and if so, is there a work around to make it all work?
Hello!I’m currently working on my future appartement and would like to have multiple Sonos amp. I would like to have a 3.1 configuration with : One Sonos Amp in my “Automotation closet”, with 2 Front Speaker Wired (with phantom center) One Sonos Amp near my TV, connected to the TV through HDMI ARCIs it possible to have this two sonos amp working together ? Thanks!
I have placed an order on an Amp and a pair of stands to place my Wharfedales. The idea at first was to sell the Arc and use the speakers and Sub with Amp as a stereo music/HT setup. Now I'm beginning to think what if I am disappointed with the stereo+phantom center performance for DD+ material. So I thought if that's the case i would keep Arc and Sub for TV and just use the Amp and speakers for music. The Wharfedales have a big woofer and go down to 40Hz so should be awesome for music.The issue is the speaker stands which would be obstructing the Arc side speakers. The side speakers vacancy would be around 30cm. Is this enough? I should mention my room is terrible, I get 0 virtual surround effect and my sound stage is very ordinary. So I am guessing I'm not loosing much by obstructing the side speakers? Thanks.
Hi there,I have two Sonos One SLs that until now worked just fine. I just got a Beam to go with my TV and hopefully integrate into the system. When I try to setup the One SLs as surround sound it says they are connected, and the Beam works, but no sound comes from the One SLs. How do I fix that?! Also, just to be clear it looks like I have to use two as surrounds? I can’t use just one? Samantha
Hi, I am thinking about mounting two Sonos one surround sound rear speakers. Do I have the option to mount them horizontally? They will be mounted about 8' up on the wall and mounting them horizontally will allow me to conceal the majority of the wall outlet they will be plugged into. I do not however want to detract from the surround sound quality. I see that the Sonos One wall mount allows for horizontal mounting. Thank You,
I must say, the smallest of changes make all the difference! For me, using an older iPad for Trueplay, pointing the mic towards the arc when tuning for 2nd part and then following Peter Pees advice on angling the arc (to achieve better atmos) made huge differences in the sound, night and day really. Highly recommend Peter pee videos if you’re not getting the right sound!
I currently have a playbar and two rear surrounds and sub. At times I move my two rears to full music playback when entertaining. I recently moved my main TV to Apple TV as playing my itunes on the tv with lyrics is a pretty cool feature. However, since the system is routed through the TV I can only use ambient mode for the rears which really lessens the experience. My questions are….Is there a work around here? If I upgrad to the ARC does the work around options make more sense? Thank you
Hi,is there any cheaper alternative for hdfury arcana. I am using an old 2010 model sony tv which has an ARC port but unfortunately do not support dolby digital plus. My amazon fire tv stick which supports dolby digital plus hence i can enjoy atmos content on my sonos arc. Not in a position to spend money for a new tv hence looking for a cheaper option. Even an ARC output with dolby digital plus support is fine fo my requirements. Hdfury arcana is not locally available in New Zealand and its too expensive for me. Thanks in advance.
Hi Everyone, Since the latest update on my playbar (running version 2) i face the following issue. I have run the trueplay settings and i can hear a more ‘surround sound’ coming from my playbar. But after a while this effect is gone and the player sounds like trueplay is disbled. However, when i check at the settings trueplay is still enabled. But i can hear from the sound that trueplay is in no way working or not working as it should. There’s more bass coming from my playbar and that’s not the case when trueplay is operating. No matter what i do, disable trueplay, enable it, retune (there’s holes in my room from me walking true my room) the trueplay works for a little while and all of sudden stops working. Anyone have any idea’s what to do? Im using an iphone with v2 app installed wich i also removed and reinstalled to no avail.
I’m a proud new owner of a Sonos Move, an iPhone owner and am having questions syncing it with my original HomePod:1. I am able to have them sync together under the HomeKit app. I have them both under the same “room” in the app. But I have to manually toggle airplay 2 every single time to get them to play together. Is there an easier way to get this done (without having to go through the annoying steps to turn both of them at the same time?)2. Any hope of getting them to play a stereo pair yet or in the future?3. is it possible to get a subwoofer and have all 3 synced together?
Hi thereEquipmentLG55CX + PS5 + Arc home theater setup (arc + sub + 2 x One SL) PS5 is connected direct to TV via HDMI 2.1 Arc connected to TV via eARC connection using HDMI supplied in box Other devices connected direct to TV via 2.0 HDMI splitterIssueWhen watching normal TV (SkyQ) or using another product, such as a Nintendo Switch, the connection between the devices and the sound output is absolutely fine. No issues. Likewise, there is no issue with Netlifx, NOWTV or Prime services via the TV apps. When you switch the input to PS5, I would say there is a 50/50 chance that the TV/Arc will not handshake properly and there will be no sound output.If you switch back to another HDMI input sound returns immediately. When you switch back to PS5 there is still no sound.If you turn off eARC on TV settings the sound returns, but that is not a fix in my opinion.I am satisfied that the TV/PS5 is setup correctly to pass through bitstream following the recent updates, albeit the app still shows s
I have a Sony X950-h and a Sonos arc. I set the eArc mode on the TV to auto. Now whatever content I play through streaming services it says in the Sonos app that it is playing in Dolby Atmos, even with shows that I know for a fact are not in Atmos. Does anyone know why that is? If I turn the eArc mode off it then displays in the app the true audio however it will only then play Atmos content with Dolby digital plus. I just want to make sure that I am truly getting Atmos with Atmos compatible programs. Thank you!
