Brand New LG 77” OLED TV (OLED77G2PUA)Brand New SONOS ARC SoundbarBrand New SONOS SUB Gen 3My problem (and solution) -After Soundbar installation, streaming services (Netflix, HBO, Disney, etc.) worked fine with soundbar. When I switched to HDMI 1 (COX Box) and select a TV channel on my Cox box, the TV screen would show the channel for a few seconds, then screen would go black for a few seconds, and repeat over and over.After much troubleshooting, I found the solution was to upgrade to the newest COX Contour 2 TV Box. It is a free upgrade for ppl with older boxes (my Cox Box was over 4 years old).
Hi allI have a LG CX connected to a Sonos ARC via eARC and HDMI 2.1 cable. I use the internal PLEX webos app to play back a variety of ripped media.Plex server is running latest verion on Windows 11. Ryzen 5950x, 32GB Ram and RTX3070 gfx card. Enough to handle just about anything.Sonos ARC doesn't supports DTS after update (convertes to PCM I believe)The LG CX doesn't support DTS at all but pretty sure was updated to support 8 channel PCM. It will support TRUE HD + ATMOS via HDMI from an external source (bluray player etc). Internal sources (apps) will not passthrough True HD.The TV HDMI sound output is set to passthrough (webos settings).Plex webos app on LG CX set to accept all sound formats except DCA/DTS.When playing media back via the Plex app TRUE HD is converted to Dolby Digital+ by the Plex server (confirmed by looking at Sonos app and plex dashboard).DTS (unsupported by TV) is converted is to AAC by the Plex server (confirmed by plex dashboard). However the Sonos app shows Dol
I was wondering if anyone had a solution for a scratched top of a Sonos Playbase other than just living with it? Whether it be a cover, a special solution or even reaching out to Sonos to see if they’d sell a replacement shell. I’m less disappointed than I would have been when I first got it, but I haven’t quite progressed to just letting it go. Thanks in advance to anyone that answers.
Could you please kindly assist please…….again!I bought a Arc and installed it ok, the problem is I cannot get any atmos on it?The tv is Samsung 2017 model, if I look at the audio outputs there is no DD+ only DD and only see DD 5.1 in the Sonos app, is the DD+ format totally different to normal DD and should I be able to select DD+ in the audio settings? Maybe the tv is too old?I am aware that the Arc needs to have a minimum of DD+ for it to play a compressed atmosIf I play a blu ray with atmos soundtrack I still only get DD 5.1, there is no tv setting for passthroughwould a HD Fury Arcana resolve this?Also if I stream Amazon music ( not unlimited) via airplay should I see cd format 16bit 44khz in the app as I don’t😥Thank you 👍Martin
Is there any posibility that the screensaver shown when the Beam is selected as an HDMI input on your TV could be modified? I know it’s a bit retro and perhaps not too cool, but something like a spectrum analyser, or at least some colour nice...
I’ve been using SONOs products for the past year, and never had any problem with them playing music. However, I could never connect via Bluetooth to my Sony Bravia TV (2020, 65-inch - Model # KD-65KX75CH) so I bought an ARC this past month. I connected the HDMI directly into it, and … It wasn’t the miracle home theater experience I was looking for. PROBLEM:* The sound constantly cuts out every 30 seconds for a brief second (noticeable)* When turning audio up/down via my SONOs app or the remote control there’s also a blip in the soundREMEDY:* ?IS THIS:* A Google App/SONOs issue?* Do I have to play with my settings somehow? Thanks in advance for any suggestions or solutions.
Hello Community. I need some help with what is hopefully a basic situation, but has confounded me for the past few weeks despite multiple searches and deep contemplation. I’m seeking know-how for the best way to connect an Apple TV 4K, a Samsung Frame TV 2022, a Sonos Amp wired to two in-ceiling speakers, and wirelessly connected to a Sonos Sub. Currently the Apple TV is connected to the Samsung One Connect Box via HDMI. Do I now need to connect the One Connect Box to the Sonos Amp? And if so, with what type of cable? I purchased a Sonos Optical Audio to HDMI adapter - is that what I use to connect the Box to the Amp, and then tune some settings in the Apple TV and/or the Frame TV? Thank you in advance for the help with this fun project!
Does plugging into Ethernet degrade audio performance of ATMOS or other content in any way or can it only help with bandwidth for streamed audio content? My understanding is... as long as optical adapters to port audio into the arc are not used, and the eARC from the tv is used via a quality HDMI cable, it will have the bandwidth to carry the Atmos content from the tv to the arc. (Obviously the quality into the tv also matters.) Basically don't try to use optical period. If I have hard wired ethernet, plugging ethernet is better than wifi. I have hard-wired ethernet to the Arc, and I use the hdmi over eArc from the tv to the Arc. I was hoping someone can confirm this is optimal? Also, for sonos sub, and/or one sl's ....plug the ethernet directly in or let the built-in wifi from the Arc push this to those speakers? Which is more efficient/better/etc.? Wondering if there are tradeoffs to consider. I appreciate any insight any Sonos engineers might be able to provide. Thanks in advance!
Hey all - I FINALLY got ATMOS working correctly with my new Sonos-based home theater setup using an Xbox Series X and a newly purchased Samsung QN90A series television (85”). It took me days to get it synced right and get rid of an audio delay in the whole setup, especially with dialog. Here’s how to pull it off. The important part is that you have to configure things to let the ATMOS/surround sound signal go straight to the ARC for decoding instead of the TV trying to help along the way (causing audio delays and other issues). Home Theater Setup: Xbox Series X → QN90A TV via HDMI 4 (the only HDMI 2.1 port on the TV)HDMI 3 → Sonos ARC (the only port on the TV that supports eARC)(Not that I’m using two PLAY:1’s as surrounds and a SUB as well) Samsung QN90A settings:eARC set to auto Audio set to Pass-through IMPORTANT (NOT auto or PCM) ATMOS turned onXbox Series X settings:ATMOS for home theater (HDMI) IMPORTANT: in other audio settings, MAKE SURE PASS-THROUGH IS TURNED ON. Otherwise yo

Below are pictures of how everything is currently set up. The arc is hook through hdmi arc port and is set to auto not pcm
How to access my greyed out Samsung "Optical Out" option from Samsung settings to play with my Sonos Soundbar
Hello: While my sound bar usually works great with my older Samsung TV using the optical out cable, it recently stopped working with my TV. It does however work with my Sonos app when playing my steaming services, just not on TV. When I try to deploy “TV” sound from the Sonos app now, nothing in the sound realm changes on my TV and I am stuck using my tv standard sound. When I go into my TV settings to choose “Optical output” or “Optical sound” it is not an option now as this menu item is greyed out and I cannot access it. I can also not do a “reset” sound because I do not have a tv remote and am using the TV navigation on the side of the screen and it won’t allow me to access the “reset sound” selection using the manual navigation. Any thoughts or tips on how to get it working once again? Thanks!
Hello everyone,I picked up an HD Fury Arcana and decided to try out Dolby ATMOS with my Beam Gen2. I’ve connected per instructions and recommended HD Fury cables (Apple TV out to Arcana in, Arcana eArc out to Beam Gen2). When I view out ATMOS enabled content i.e. Avengers Endgame, Shang-Chi, Sonos S2 is showing airplay and ATMOS?! In Apple TV settings, it is showing ATMOS available for audio output, so I am wondering if something is amiss here since there is a lot of discussion about airplay not transmitting ATMOS signal? Appreciate any feedback on this, and to be honest I’m not clear why S2 is showing airplay at all given the wired connections.Thank you very much,Tim
I have a Tivo bolt, and LG TV, and the Sonos arc. In my old setup, I ran the HDMI cord from the bolt to the HDMI port 1 and then use an audio cord to run from the TV to my sound bar. How do you set it up with the arc? If I run the arc to HDMI port 2, it won't play the sound coming out of the tivo port. There doesn't appear to be a place for one of the optical audio cords…Thanks!
