I have a network around the home consisting of a Play 5, a solo Play 1 and a surround set up running off the TV that has Playbar, Sub and 2 x Play 1's. These are all connected via a bridge and a boost. I recently noticed that I can no longer see the surround system, but can still access the Play 5 and solo Play1. I've tried power cycling the router, bridge and boost; changing the channel; rebooting the controller app. Any advice on what I can try to bring the surround back into the network? To be clear the surround is all working off the TV - I just can't see it from the app controller. Thanks
Current set up- soundbar hooked up with optical cable to lg smart tv After set up we cannot connect our mobile devices/laptop to the tv via screen mirroring anymore. This is our main source or television and movies. Is the soundbar taking over the wifi in the television preventing us from using the connections? Thanks for your help:)

So I'm new to the Sonos ecosystem. Last month I bought the P5Gen2 for my home office. Last week I bought 2 P1's for the living room. The next part for my home theater system will be the Playbar or Playbase. I'll wait at least another month for the Sub though. So my question is: does the Playbase has any features (except going under a TV) that should make me buy it over a Playbar? My TV is mounted on the wall so it doesn't matter which one I get. I'd buy the Base just because it's newer but than again, the Sonos page of the Playbar reads "thin is good for TV, but not for sound" - so will the base have worse sound than the bar? What could you recommend?
I recently purchased a Sonos soundbar for my LG OLED TV, and I am very disappointed with the results. The sound quality is no better than the original TV speakers. I have verified that the audio is hooked up correctly using the fiber-optic cable and the audio is coming from the Sonos soundbar only. Is there anything else I am missing, or is that as good as it gets?
It is´nt possible to connect the new Samsung Smart Remote (Samsung TV KS 8080 / 8090) with the Sonos Playbar. Connection works with other remotes (e.q. Apple TV4). How can I connect the Samsung Smart Remote. When the Sonos Playbar is connected to the Samsung TV KS 8080 via optical audio an sound at the TV is switched to optical out. Therefore the sound volume can´t be regulated on the TV.
Hi Guys, I am looking at purchasing a Sony X85 (also known as X8500 in some regions) 4K UHD TV and wondered if this panel will pass-through (via other HDMI ports - e.g. Blu-ray, Playstation, Xbox etc.) Dolby Digital 5.1 audio signal via the optical output port to SONOS Playbar. I didn't really want to invest in a HDMI/TOSLINK Switcher box and Smart-Remote for a new TV. I was hoping this 2016 panel would just plug and play! I called Sony support and they advised it would pass-through. Anyone got this setup to verify? Thanks
I have a Playbar + Sub + 2 Play 1s setup and maybe moving to a new house. As we plan the move, i wanted to make sure we get the best ambient setup for our Home Theater. What kind of distances are recommended for the Playbar. How far can the person be from the Playbar to hear good quality sound? The Play 1s are placed in the rear and mounted on Sanus WSS2 stands. I know that all houses vary in dimensions and acoustics, however If some of you can share your setups and experiences it will help me plan better
I am buying a new TV which is to be wall mounted in a Mirrored Frame. I don't want to mount or have a Playbar beneath it as this will ruin the effect of the mirror when the TV is off. I have a Connect and some Play 1's. Can I conect the analog out of the TV to the connect (using hidden wires of course) and then have autoplay play the TV sound on a pair of Play 1's which are small enough to be discretely placed either side of the fireplace (where the TV/Mirror is to be mounted)
I bought used plasma pioneer tv without original speakers, therefor i plug my own one speaker in the tv back, where is plus and minus plug in. Problem is that, when i play xbox sound from speaker comes out, all is good, but when i watch tv channels sound didn't comes out. where is the problem?
Hello everyone As you probably have observed so has Sonos launched a new product to be placed under the TV. Can some explain me what is the difference between this product and the Sonos Playbar - In addition to the different position of the two products and little difference in their appearance, so I can not really discern a difference between the two products?
I'm experiencing sound dropouts between my Sonos Playbar and my new Sony TV. I used to have a Samsung TV and had no problems so I'm confident it's an issue between the TV and the Sonos system. Would appreciate some help/feedback as I've invested a lot of money in the system so far and it's disappointing.
Current using a PlayBar with my tv set. Was thinking about getting the sub for it too. But then I see a new product, Playbase. Since its the same price as the sub, would I be better off getting the Playbase then buying the sub for the Playbar? Which would offer better performance?
Equipment: - Tivo Premiere HD - Sony XBR 65X850D TV - Sonos Playbar - Sonos Sub - Sonos S1 [two] Issue: If Tivo has Dolby Digital 5.1 Sound enabled the sound drops out for a few seconds [2-3?] when a 30 second skip forward is pressed. This happens *every* time the 30s skip is used. Actually, the sound drops out, then comes back momentarily, then drops out again for a very brief moment, then returns OK until the next time 30s skip is pressed I have worked around this by switching the Tivo output from Dolby to PCM - but I would prefer Dolby obviously. Any help? Known issue? Thanks, Jeff
When I set my original PS4 (and new PS4 Pro) to dolby digital for 5.1 sound I find that when i turn off my PS4 (and now the Pro which has replaced it) I get several loud popping noises from the speaker when the PS is fully off. I find that if I set the PS to the 1st audio option (stereo) I don't get this fault but when I revert PS4 setting to dolby digital (not DTS) I get the popping noise again when PS4 is powered down. Have spent 90 mins with Sonos tech support who are being helpful and trying to resolve (submitted 2 diagnostic tests etc). I should point out that when the PS4 is set to dolby digital the sound etc is perfectly fine in every respect its only an issue on PS4 power down. I did find the playbar made a popping noise last night after unpausing Sky Q but this appears to be a one off incident I can;t replicate Has anyone else had this problem or know why the playbar does this ?
Hi, Does anyone know if the Samsung UE60KS7000 will output 5.1 audio through the optical cable from external sources such as an Apple TV, Xbox or Sky Q? All of the above are HDMI into the tv, with the TV optical output straight into the playbar. I'm thinking of upgrading my TV as above and upgrading to 5.1 by adding a pair of play ones, but only if my new TV can support 5.1 through the playbar I already own.
I often feel frustrated that the Autoplay feature breaks my zone-grouping. I think that it would be an improvement if the player would regroup itself to the previous group as a member. Today it works like this: Lets say you have 3 players grouped, and playing. Player1, Player2 and Player3. If you have autoplay enabled on Player3, signal on the line-in would detach the player from the group, and start playing line-in. If the line-in stops, the player would still be on the line-in, but in a STOPPED state. I would rather see it working like this: Player1-3 is in a group. Player3 switches to line-in, and adjust it's volume to the preset. Line-in stops, Player3 should regroup with the other zones, and restore it to the volume previously set. If the group-zone is playing, so should the Player3. If not, it will be silent, but it will be grouped as it was before the line-in kicked in. I had a discussion about this in the forum a few months ago, http://forums.sonos.com/showthread
