Hi All, Im looking for some help to understand the best way of fixing lip sync issue between these two devices LG GX OLED 55’ and Sonos Arc. What i'm seeing is the sound is outta sync with the TV on a number of different devices and outputs. For context I have the Tv wall mounted with all external HDMI ports connected with Maxonar HDMI 2.1certified cables, these cables are capable are using earc, they are linked to a virgin media HD 360 box, a PS4, and I am using the Earc port to connect the sonos to the tv. I am experiencing sync issue using the above devices as well as native tv apps, Netflix, Disney, YT etc. The Tv is hard wired to my home network and the sonos is on a wifi network, Could it be down to internet connect? The Sonos will not pick my 5G network for some reason. Questions does anyone know what settings in terms of sound will remove this issue?Are there certain sound formats which work better so PCM, Pass Through, Dolby Digital etc. The sonos support team said switch yo
We have a new home and a few of the samsung tv’s are connnected to Sonos sound bars, which is nice because using the built in tv speaker doesn’t down great due to the cabinets/book cases the tv’s are in.It appears that the soundbar is connected to the tv via the single serial wire to a one connect box. The sound bar doesn’t have HDMI. I am using a roku voice remote for the tv but i can only adjust sound via the Sonos app linked to the sound bar. Is there a way to bypass the Sonos app and system to just allow me to control the tv’s sound via the roku remote and only have sound come out of the soundbar (not the tv)?thanks for any suggestions!SM.
Hi allI’ve recently set up a new amp with existing in ceiling speakers and it works great. I’ve also connected the amp to a 2018 LG OLED via hdmi arc which pushes the sound out through the in ceiling speakers - also great.The issue I have it switching off the amp to return to playing the tv via a sky soundbox (also conducted to the tv via hdmi). This seems impossible to do, other than by physically unplugging the amp from the arc hdmi port on the tv. I only occasionally play the tv through the in ceiling speakers but it would be nice to find a slicker solution than the above workaround.I have seen similar posts without a solution from a couple of years ago so I thought perhaps someone might now have found a fix.cheers.
Just upgraded my gen 1 Sonos 5 to an Arc. Have a Sonos amp in the same room but behind the sofa driving speakers facing the TV. The amp and TV are on the same LAN network but are too far apart to connect by HDMI cable, Is there a way to connect the TV or Arc to the amp for surround sound?TIA
When watching Atmos content, we will experience the sound dropping/cutting out for a quick second, sometimes only once or twice throughout an whole movie.
We have tried both wifi and ethernet connections, have changed all the HDMI cords. TV is a Samsung Q8DT and we also use an apple tv 4k as well as PS5. We mostly use the apple tv, but have experienced the issue with apple tv and native samsung apps. I think its been happening ever since I got the Arc, I love the Atmos but this happens every time we watch Atmos content and really kills the movie.
My Setup:Plex Media Server + Nvidia Shield + TV(not eARC compatiable) + Arcana + Sonos ARC Previously this setup was playing my 4k Atmos TRUEHD content no issues. But recently it stopped playing it all together. Will only play content if I switch the audio stream to AC3. I read this thread below and it seemed to be pointing to an issue with the latest 13.x Sonos firmware causing the issue. So I updated my Arcana firmware to .84 but it doesn't seemed to have fixed the issue? Am I missing anything in terms of Arcana settings to get this working?
Our main viewing space has an Arc sound bar, Sonos Sub, and two One SLs as rear channels.I also have an extra pair of Sony SS-F6000 floorstanding 4-way speakers, and a SVS SB-2000 Pro 550 Watt subwoofer.Will a Sonos Amp allow me to sensibly integrate those items into the existing setup?Thanks for any advice! Thanks!
Hello,Yesterday I ordered everything that I mentioned in the title. So far I owned the Symfonisk only and experienced audio-video delays while using it with my windows PC via TuneBlade app (basically AirPlay simulator). Easily fixed when using VLC, but a nightmare when using Netflix. Now I’m going through the forum and see multiple threads from the past regarding lip sync issues on LG TV’s. Were those ever resolved? Also, I’m planning on using the TV for Netflix and other on-board apps for watching movies and stuff, but on the other hand I want to plug in my PC, also for movie watching stuff that’s not available on the current streaming platforms. Am I going to face audio delay issues again?
Hi all , I currently have a Yamaha sound bar that's rated at 120watt power output , ideal listening volume is near 80 on the volume slider , my living room is about 13ft X 12ft and I sit about 10ft away from the TV , I'm worried that if I get the gen 2 beam that it won't be as loud because Sonos don't specify the power output , does it go fairly loud ??? Considering the size ??
I have a Sonos Arc connected via HDMI to an LG OLED C1, with eARC and HDMI-CED enabled. Most things work fine, including the LG magic remote (I didn’t have to do any Universal Remote configuration, it just works) and I only had to change a couple of settings on the TV to get full surround sound working. That said, with the Arc connected I can’t see the volume level - the vertical bar that normally appears when you’re changing the TV volume level. If I disconnect the Arc, I get the vertical bar back, but with the Arc connected then all I see is a + button, a - button and a sound icon when I change the volume level. It works, but that useful piece of information is missing. I can see it on the Sonos app, if I look there, but not on the TV screen. This suggests some kind of communication failure between the Arc and the LG TV, with the actual volume level not being shared. Anybody else seen this or have an idea what might be the problem?
My TV room sound system currently has a Sonos arc and two Sonos 1 and sound is amazing when watching TV. I want to keep now a much cleaner/simple room and want to replace the two Sonos 1 speakers which sit on the back with Ceiling or Wall speakers. What would be the best recommendation to keep good quality sound surround system for the TV?
Hi, I have a Sonos 5.1 setup. It’s Arc, Sub and two Play Ones. All in all I am very happy with it. But my room is kinda big, 60 m2 with 5 meter ceiling. Here’s the question: what would be the best upgrade: to get a second sub or replace the Ones with Fives? I should mention that I also use the system for music quite a lot, and have it set up so the Ones and the Sub are the most audible. I like listening to music in a 5.1 setup; you can sort walk around inside the soundfield rather than sit in a narrow sweetspot of stereo-speakers. (I have a very serious vinyl stereo-setup, that sounds better than Sonos (you know: tubes and preamps, poweramps and cables and phonostages, etc.) but I still use Sonos for 80% of my music listening). Hope this makes sense. Thanks
Hello - I have an AMP inside the house that wires through the walls to two outdoor speakers R+L and I was wondering if I can connect these wirelessly to my Samsung Terrace TV. Is there some sort of transmitter that will allow me to do this without having to purchase a weatherized Sonos soundbar to wirelessly connect them together? Best,Chris
I have an Amazon Fire TV Cube with a HDMI connection to a projector. I would like to connect my Playbar (which has an Optical Audio) but the Amazon Fire TV Cube does not have an Optical Audio connection. So from the Fire TV I would like send the video to the projector and the audio to the Playbar. Is that possible?Thanks in advance.
Hello Sonos Community!I have a Beam GEN2 and cannot capitalize on the ATMOS capabilities since my TV only has ARC (and even that does not work properly - will not pass through). I am resigned to upgrade the TV and while OLED would be nice, my SONOS upgrades do not leave much extra for making a splash. Hence, I am considering the Hisense U78 LED panel as a value-for-money option and am reaching out to the community for real world compatibility with SONOS Beam. I would love a clean solution and utilize eARC!Thanking everyone in advance.
I”m creating a viewing area in my basement thats not a dedicated room. I’m planning on using an ARC and sub. For the rear speakers i’m trying to decide between in-ceiling sonos speakers vs Sonos One’s on stands behind the couch. Asthetics aside which will provide better sound?
I have used the Amp connected to a TV via HDMI to act as the front of a surround system, left, right and phantom center channel, sub out and support Sonos speakers as rear surrounds.With the Amp set up in this configuration, running a powered sub from the sub out port, is that sub receiving the actual decoded subwoofer channel from Dolby, basically the .1 of 5.1 or does the Amp just use its crossover to feed low frequency from the left and right channels to the sub out port as it would in a stereo set up?Likewise, is the phantom center channel derived/created from the decoded center channel of Dolby 5.1 or is it purely simulated from the left and right channels?
I am mounting a frame/art tv above the mantle and I don’t want to look at a speaker beneath it, I’d like to have two matching sonos speakers on the right and left. I already have one beam, i love the shape of it. Ideally I’d like to know if it’s possible to connect two sound Beam bars to one television to create right and left channels. If not, can two beam speakers connect to make *balanced* sound on the right and left of the tv, connected with a split optical cable (or other solution?). I know I can *add* Sonos speakers to the tv if one is hardwired, but I want them both to be connected to the tv automatically. I have read mixed reviews on connecting the speakers to the tv with HDMI cable. Either way if the two are hardwired to the tv, a splitter would be needed (I assume?)I don’t want a middle channel/speaker as I don’t have anywhere to put it. An amp or woofer would be fine if that’s absolutely necessary.Thanks for your help and ideas!
I can’t seem to find a solution to my problem. I have a gen1 Apple TV 4K connected to my LG OLED C1 TV, which is connected to my Sonos Arc. When I set the TV to PASSTHROUGH, I get Atmos content no problem from my Apple TV, but I get no sound when playing Dolby 5.1 content. Sometimes, after resettling everything, I get sound but it comes in as Dolby Multichannel 7.1, which obviously isn’t correct. If I set my TV to AUTO, the content will play as Dolby Multichannel 5.1. I was told Passthrough is the best option but it sucks Audio doesn’t work for 5.1 content. Am I doing something wrong?
I am able to sync the Fios remote to control the volume though the Sonos Beam when I am watching Fios cable TV. When I switch over to an app (Netflix, Hulu, HBO Max) the Fios remote doesn’t work to control the volume. The Sony/TV a remote doesn’t work for the volume either. How do I get one remote to control everything?
