Hi team , quick question , the Sonos hdmi cable I have for my beam 2 is too long , the beam sits in front of my TV and basically goes under the TV to the hdmi socket , is it possible to coil up the hdmi cable and secure it with a velcro cable tie Or can I use any other shorter hdmi cable ?? Thanks
Hi Alli have a Samsung Q9 (2019) connected via HDMI to my Beam 2. This set up has worked previously and only recently stopped working. I made no changes to the settings and the Samsung Q9 is on the latest firmware (version 1325). Anynet+ is activated. My Sonos app indicates that there is Sound transmitted to the Beam2 but no sound is heard despite repeated efforts to increase/decrease the volume. I have unplugged the Beam 2 and Samsung TV and removed and replaced the HDMI to no avail. I have not taken the Samsung TV back to factory defaults yet. Any suggestions ?
I’ve learnt a lot from you Over the years. Thank you and as a way of saying thank you , I’m posting conversation that might help others Kept experiencing tiny audio drops (milli seconds) from rear speakers connected via s2 amp connected to arc playbar.after trying everything , new ethernet, updating software, changing tv settings . But nothing then I realised the WiFi was still enabled even though I was connected via Ethernet . Disabled and it fixed it . The WiFi must have clashes on the network.
Does anyone know if I can setup a Beam 2 and configure in-ceiling speakers for the down firing Atmos elements (instead of relying on the Beam 2 virtual up-firing ) ?(i’m awaiting installation so apologies if this question has an obvious answer, and i’m using completely incorrect terminology)Thanks
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?
las voces de algunas peliculas se oyen muy bajas , si sonos permitiera aumentar las voces me haria muy feliz
cuando compre sonos arc lo compre entusiasmado , pero aparte de no descodificar dts ,el dialogo de algunas pelis se oye muy bajo , porque sonos no permite subir el volumen de los dialogos es lo unico que le falta a este pedazo barra
Good people, sorry if my English is not very good I am using the translator.My question is, will I be able to better enjoy surround sound with my arc sonos if I place both one sl on the sides of the bed as shown in the photo?Also I leave photos of my room to see if its format is affecting a lot in my sound experience with the sonos arc.

Hi brains trustHere is my conundrum. I will be getting a base level TV for the spare room and wanted to pump up the horrible tv speakers slightly with a beam. In the main TV room I have a 5.1 playbar setup. So my question is whether I should just put the beam in the spare room or move the playbar into the spare room and have the beam 5.1 setup in the main room. Going to need to stuff around with wall mounting etc so need to make the right call early. Anyone have experience with both and can help out?Thanks in advance.
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 Guys Sorry for another dropout issue, my setup in the living room (Beam, 2 ones as surrounds and a sub) drops out very frequently, maybe once every 5-6 minutes. I think I've narrowed it down to when we watch anything on Sky Q e.g. Netflix, live TV, recordings etc... The beam is wired to the router but surrounds and sub are wireless. I've also tried switching the sonos channel but hasn't helpedDoes anyone else have the same issue or have any advice?? Diagnostics - 1044364007Thanks guys for any help
Hi friends I'm in doubt about two projectors to simply watch 3D movies.Epson 2250 at best buy for $799 vs Epson 5030UB for 700$ With recent replaced lamp on a used page. who wins this fight?(with a blu-ray..and HDFury Arcana adapter for Sonos arc.) I like the Epson brand image I know there are other brands with more modern projectors but I love the balance of contrast and brightness of Epson the sharpness of the images sometimes makes you think it's 4k. so I am willing to pay a reasonable price for an old 3D projector. I don't want to buy a modern projector from another brand and not be happy with the image quality. I know that each person has a different style for the brands. I already have a current 4k project so I don't want to spend too much on a 3D HD I know the 3D of these two projectors are good. but the doubt is killing me to buy the new 2230 or the 5030UB used with a new lamp. i am not very comfortable buying used projector but this one for the price seems to be worth
Hello! Did some Googling and reviewed quite some topics on here/Reddit/Unifi Community but couldn’t find anyone with the same symptom. I just recently bought some Ubiquity gear and got the majority of my devices on the new network. One of the things that I wanted to achieve was to wire all my devices where I can. This resulted in my Sonos setup in the Living Room beeing almost completely wired, except for the Sub. The setup is a “classic” Sonos surround setup with a Playbar and two Play:1's (and the Sub).The surround setup has went to a complete factory reset due to the fact that the remote of my new TV was not able to bind properly. This is still buggy but that seems to be another challenge I guess.Today, all of a sudden, a new device came up in my Unifi controller on the same port where my Playbar is connected to (and I don't use the second port on the Playbar for “daisy chaining”). While I was investigating this, 3 other devices (as in; unique MAC adresses) also showed up within the
Hi folks,All of a sudden I'm having all kinds of issues with sound, I can't be 100% sure if it's the tv or the sonos but I'm having issues with no sound at all sometimes, usually fixed by turning the tv off & on, though this morning I had to turn 'pass through' off & on again. Now I'm not getting 5.1 through Netflix, it's definitely a 5.1 source but all I'm getting is stereo pcm, I've tried all settings I can think off but nothing works. The beam is connected by eARC
Hi All. I have a Sonos Arc that im looking at wall mounting below my TV. I have a slim bracket on my TV, of which the tv sits only 6” from the wall. My question is anyone who has mounted there ARC with the bracket find any decrease with the sound quality/level. I heard there are sensors in the mount that make the bar change EQ.. is this for the best or not? Thanks
I have an arc, sub and 2 one sl’s. I am planning to upgrade to a new Tv. The Panasonic 50HX820B looks good with Dolby Atmos which should, in theory, make the most of my set-up when streaming Netflix or Amazon Prime via the Tv. However it seems to output Arc, not eArc. Will that make a difference to my sound experience?
Hello! Just purchased my first few speakers this week. I have a quick question re a potential set up involving 2 x Five, 2 x One SL, 1 x Sub. If I purchase an Arc, could I have this in the middle under my TV, a Five on either side of it, the sub at the back of the room, and the two Ones on either side of the sub? I see lots of set ups with either Fives or Ones at the back of the room, with an Arc under the TV, but I haven't found any yet that have speakers on either side of the Arc as well. Any suggestions or tips are greatly appreciated.
Hi folks,Let me start by saying ”I’m definitely a novice” and therefore not tech savvy in any fashion!So please be gentle.I have just purchased a beam for my bedroom and am impressed with the sound so I and am considering replacing my Boise bar in my living room and possibly adding some additional speakers. Suggestions are appreciated.I have a small 2 bedroom custom built house. My living rm is 14x14 and my bedroom is 14x16. They are separated by roughly 13ft of 4’to 5’ wide hall that opens directly into one another. I have a 55” Samsung TV in the bed and a 65” in the Liv rm. Now my thoughts are as follows. purchase a new beam for the Liv.rm. and a sub to place in the hall. I may add other speakers if needed. Again I’m open for suggestions. My primary question is can both of the beams share the sub?. I believe with the layout ,distance and openness of the hall to each listening area it should function fine. I hope to link everything together for music listening throughout and just s
So I have the sonos Arc and decided to get the new 65" Vizio Quantum P Series TV. Read some tv re iews that showed it had great brightness and it seemed to support all audio formats via eArc (from what i saw on rtings. I'm not an audio expert, but I just wanted a good TV to hook up to my Arc and that would support whatever audio was sent to it.. Well, everything seemed to work well, but about once a week, the TV would start acting weird.. I could see the picture and sound, but the input and settings button wouldn't be responsive... when this happened, I couldn't even turn off the TV (even using the physical power button on the TV).. the only solution was to unplug the TV for about a minute and then plug it back in... This got annoying fast considering the TV plug is in the back of my entertainment stand.. I'm returning the TV and looking to get a new one.. the Vizio only cost about 1k on sale, but I'm not opposed to spending up to 2k on a tv. I wax considering the LG oled c1,
