My youview TV remote is now connected to and controls my sonos playbar. Unfortunately every single button on the remote turns the volume up, including the volume down button. I've reset the remote controller like 10 times (yes, I'm following the instructions correctly, I'm not pressing the volume up button repeatedly whilst calibrating!!)... I've tried it with the tv and the youview box on aswell as off, and it continues to only turn the volume up. First question is there a known fix for this... i have not found one on the forums so far! As there's no solution to the above, I would obviously like to disconnect the remote from the playbar as currently the remote is practically unusable due to it causing very high volumes on the sonos bar!!! Unfortunately I've found no way of doing this (forums from a year ago say the only way back then was using another remote - which i dont have!) Anybody have any suggestions?! Either the first or second point? Many thanks in advance
I'm having regular problems playing my TV sound through the line-in on my Play 5. The signal cuts out for sometimes 30 seconds or more and always seems to happen when the source volume is low (for example at a quiet point in a film or TV show). Turning the TV volume way up seems to fix the connection but this isn't a great work around. Line-in source level is set to 1 (low). Any help would be most welcome!
My Samsung LED 60in TV does not support external speakers and therefore does not have the menu option to turn off the internal speakers. I have confirmed with Samsung support that I can't flash the firmware or do anything to get them disabled. I have the Sonos playbar connected via ethernet cable to router and I have the playbar going optically to the Tivo Roamio because my TV doesn't have optical port just HDMI ports. Thus, after setting up my Sonos Playbar with my Tivo Roamio and Samsung TV I have the following issues... When I change the volume via my Tivo remote, I have to use my iPad/iPhone Sonos app if I don't want the TV volume to go up/down. When I use the Tivo remote like I normally would, the Sonos Playbar and Samsung TV volume go up/down. Thus, I am still getting Samsung TV sound. Not horrible but not ideal. Also when I turn the TV off, I have to press mute as well on the tivo remote in order for the playbar to go quiet since it is plugged
I have a Playbar and 2 x 1's as surrounds. My sofa is in front of the TV/Playbar and the rear left Play 1 is behind me in the corner of the room but the rear right is quite some distance away (ie I'm not in the centre of the system) How can I increase the volume on the right hand side speaker to make up for the difference in distance?
Hi, I have a large TV that is slightly tilted downwards, meaning that the top of the TV is 6.5" away from the wall. If I mount my playbar on the top, just 2" above the TV makes me think a lot of the sound would get trapped behind the screen. Does anyone have a recommendation for how much higher I should go? The playbar has to be mounted above, as if it was underneath, it'd be within range of (and therefore eventually destroyed) by my daughter.
Dear community and developers, I am running Sonos Bar, Sub and two Sonos 1s (classic 5.1 setup). Due to the room configuration, I need to make my bar a little bit louder and one of the 1s a little bit quieter. I have checked the settings and haven't find such option. Could you please suggest how I can do that or consider this as a feature request?
Can anyone help me get sound from my Netflix app on Samsung TV. My setup is as follows:- Samsung ks658000 connected directly to Sonos Playbar. Sky Q is connected to the TV, along with Samsung Blu Ray player both via HDMI I also have a Sub And 2 Play 1s. The TV and Blu Ray player both work, giving me 5.1 output but when I watch Netflix, YouTube, etc through my TV apps I get no sound at all. The only way I can get sound is if I change the sound output from 'optical' to ,TV speakers'. I have tried changing the TV audio settings HDMI Audio Format to PCM and Bitstream and also changed from and to Dolby Digital but nothing seems to help. Hopefully it's just something simple I've missed. Any help greatfully appreciated.
Hi - I seem the be having the same problem getting my existing remote to work with my Playbar as some users have had in the past. I set it all up with no problems but when I try to turn the volume down it goes up. The volume up button increases the volume too. Mute works correctly. I'm using a youview box (mine's from Talktalk) and the youview remote, which doesn't control the TV's volume, only that of the source youview box (the only TV functionality programmed into the youview remote is to turn is off and on and change the source). My optical cable is connected to the youview box as the TV doesn't have an optical out. I've tried re-pairing the remote control several times (sometimes with TV and youview box off, sometimes on) and have gone through the whole Playbar setup a couple of times, but same result every time. Only point of note is that the Playbar seems to find it harder to detect the remote signals when the rest of the set up is off than when it's on. But got there in
I have a 5.1 setup with the playbar, sub and two play 1's. The setup was super easy and music from spotify sounds great. The issue I am having is when I am watching Apple TV. I thought at first that the optical coming out of my TV was causing the intermittent cut outs as it couldn't handle the surround information. So I took the TV out of the scenario and wired my Apple TV right to the playbar via optical. The same issue is happening. Is this a common problem and is there a setting I am missing? It's really starting to bum me out. I spent a lot of money on this system! Hoping I can get some advice from support. I'd also like to add that the optical cable is not kinked anywhere, it's the cable that came with the playbar. Is there any known issues with this cable, should I invest in a better one?
I currently have a playbar connected to my TV and on my patio I have a pair of Play 1 speakers. I'd like to install a projector on the patio and use roku to stream content to the projected display. Audio will be a problem though and I'd like to stay away from any additional wiring. How can I get the audio to the Sonos? I was thinking that maybe if I connect the roku into a wireless HDMI extender and then into my TV which is connected to the playbar with optic cable, I can then play content on my TV, stream the video to the projector and group the Sonos speakers while muting the playbar. Would something like that work? Do you have any product suggestions to make this work, or would there be an easier way by maybe connecting the roku directly to the projector and streaming the audio to the play 1 speakers? Any advice would be appreciated!
Hi guys, so here's the deal. I bought some Bose speakers for my living room and the Connect AMP to play music and use as TV speakers. Apple Music works a charm. My TV outputs audio through optical, so I bought an optical cable and then a converter - optical to RCA so I can plug into Connect AMP. All connected well and thought it would work brilliantly but end up only getting sound out of one speaker. Even tried it on my Apple TV using the optical cable and converter and still only getting one speaker sound. Is this a problem with my converter or configuration in Connect AMP? Any help would be great! Thanks!
I just bought a house that has speakers in the ceiling in some rooms, and I would like to use the two in the living room as rear left and rear right in a 5.1 setup using the PLAYBAR, SUB, and the CONNECT:AMP to run the two existing wired speakers. This how-to from SONOS states that you must have both the PLAYBAR and CONNECT:AMP wired into the network in order to do this, however my wireless router is in one room, the PLAYBAR is in the living room, and the CONNECT:AMP is in the utility closet that all the ceiling speakers go to in the exact opposite side of the house than where the wireless router is located. https://sonos.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2248?_ga=1.15565233.622813009.1487300518 Is there really no way to get the CONNECT:AMP to do rear left & right without physically wiring it together with the PLAYBAR and instead only using wireless? I even bought a BOOST hoping it would help, but it didn't. Tech support said it absolutely needed to be wired in via et
Today i bought a Sonos connect and connected it to my exsisting system( 2x sonos1 and 1x sonos5).

Got my soundbar all hooked up and turned off the tv speakers. now when I turn the volume up/down I get a on screen message that says "!Not Available" My volume does indeed turn up and down I just want to get rid of this message, I found the list that shows how to do this but it appears to be for different cable/satellite providers remotes, not the actual TV remotes. I do not have cable or satellite so that list does not help. How can i get rid of this message using my Samsung TV remote? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also, if I missed a list of tv remotes I apologize
Hi All This should be very quick to sort out. I'm looking at getting a Sub to go with my play bar. (FYI We already have a Boost in the house just in case this affects anything). As the Sub is wireless and we do not have space for it by the TV and the Playbar I was thinking about putting it by the sofa where we sit to watch TV. Two benefits to doing this are space and hopefully it would lessen the subfrequencies traveling through to our neighbors. Are there any reasons to not do this? Many thanks in advance ?
Trying to setup my home theater but running into many complications. Currently setup: appleTV connected to my projector via HDMI cable. Audio output is then wired through a connect box. I have a play5 that is then setup in the room. The issues is that I have a bunch of wifi interference and changing the channel settings does nothing. I've tried compressed (major sound delay) and uncompressed (audio skips constantly). Ive purchased a boost and it had no impact. I've also tried connecting the play5 directly to the projector and it also has a very long delay. Before I give up anything else I can try?
Connecting Playbar to Projector on Opposite Sides of the Room Using Apple TV and Wireless HDMI Extender
I would like to set up a home theater system in my new apartment using my Epson Digital Projector, an Apple TV and a Sonos Playbar. The set-up would be used primarly (i) to play content from my laptop using the Apple TV's "Airplay Mirroring" function, with video coming through my Projector and audio coming through the Playbar and (ii) to play Hulu/Netflix/etc. content directly from Apple TV, with video coming through my Projector and audio coming through the Playbar. The problem that I am running into is that I need to have the Projector and the Sonos Playbar on opposite sides of the room. Specifically, the Projector needs to be behind my couch and the Playbar needs to be in front of my couch, and I do not want to wire them together because doing so will ruin the aesthetics of the room. The only set-up that I have been able to come up with that would conceivably allow me to have a Projector at the back of the room synced with a Playbar at the front of the room
Hi, I have bought a play sound bar and a benq w2000 projector. The issue I have is I have no optical output on the projector. I have a PS4 which I can run an optical lead to my sound bar however to stream films etc I was planning to use my amazon stick. So how can I get the sound from my amazon stick which is plugged into the projector via hdmi to come out of the play bar which is connected to my PS4 which is connected to my projector via hdmi also. Thanks Jon
