Hey Guys,I have an Arc with Sub and surrounds and have recently added a Nintendo switch to the setup. I own a PS5 too but the way Nintendo powers down is different to Sony PS5 in the way that PS5 automatically restores my TV source to the last played screen before turning on the console. Nintendo switch on the other hand, asks to choose the Source. Does anyone know what source Input does Sonos Arc use on a Samsung Series 8 TV ( TU8000) ? I see Sonos and Sonos Multimedia server as two of the options in my TVs source input that refer to the Home theatre.
My setup is:LG OLED55G16LA Sonos Arc connected through eARC XBOX series X Nintendo SwitchFrom another thread in the formal I followed this suggestions:From https://www.avforums.com/threads/lg-oled-g1-evo-owners-and-discussion-thread.2352393/page-26Change your Sound Out to HDMI ARC Go to All Settings -> Sound -> Additional Settings and turn on eARC. Under All Settings -> Sound -> Additional Settings -> Digital Sound Out select “Pass Through” When I use the Xbox Series X I see in the iPhone app that sound reproduced is Dolby Atmos.When I use the TV apps (Disney+, Apple TV+, prime video, HBO max) and I select a movie with Dolby Atmos tracks, then I don’t see in the iPhone app that it’s reproducing Dolby Atmos I see Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 or Dolby Digital 5.1… so no Dolby Atmos.If I use the TV apps (Disney+, Apple TV+, prime video, HBO max) with the same movies and without the Sonos arc then I see the TV reproducing Dolby Atmos for those movies. How can I get Dolby Atmos fr
Hi guys, Currently have Arc + 2x One SL’s + gen 3 sub. I use the set up for both home theatre and music. I find with music the One SLs do struggle at higher volumes. Looking for opinions on should I change the One SLs to 2x Fives and buy new stands for them in my lounge room. This does also leave the pair of exisiting One SLs (and stands) without much of a purpose. Or should I grab a second gen 3 sub considering they are currently discounted in Aus and it would mean all my exisiting hardware remains. I guess I want to know if the second sub will in someway add to the higher volume where I find the One SLs are lacking. Thank you for any insights or tips
I'm trying to watch Glastonbury on my TV but the Sonos tries to play this stereo output as 5.1 which means 95% comes through the center (Beam) and none through the rear (One SL) speakers. I know yiu can disconnect the surrounds and set it up differntly but this should just be an option in the app to switch. This is easily done for music, so it should be possible for video content too. I k ow you was looking into it with the developers years ago but nothing has changed. Are we any further with this please
I have a Sonos One in the living room and Sonos One SL in the bedroom.When I am playing songs from my phone (iOS 13.3.1), airplay to either speaker won’t work.The error message I get is > Unable to connect to “Living Room”.However, when I airplay to Apple TV, it works! Any kind soul can help what’s wrong? I try restart my router, speakers and phone. It doesn’t work at all.
I have a 2020 LG CX TV with an Arc, 2 Ones and a sub that has been working fine for a year. Earlier today, the sound stopped coming through the Sonos speakers. I was able to get the sound to work through the speakers but the LG remote no longer controls the volume. I have tried the manual setup controls from other threads but it doesn’t work. Also, if I try to set up the TV in the Sonos app, I get an error that the Arc Mode is not connected but it is.
Hi there, I'v searched n searched and can't find this anywhere, so just querying. Im using a full Sonos setup Arc 2xSL and a sub with my Xbox, it sounds great. I noticed the other day the Dolby app states that settings are not available for home theatre in the Dolby app itself. Is this just an override and we just use the EQ settings in the S2 app? Many thanks in advance. 🙃
As a SONOS Theatre System owner/user, I am very glad and relieved to share that the long waited 14.10 patch had solved my Surround Speakers and Double Subs dropping out issue. I had been tested it for one day by changing between PS5, Netflix and Broadcast TV and the connection stays strong without a single dropout till this point. This is something commendable. Also, quite a no. of users and myself included feel that the surround speakers sound better and more pronounce after deploying the 14.10 patch which is a great bonus to the fix.At the same time, I would also like to inform that I am so glad not to follow SONOS tech support staff’s instructions to meddle with my WiFi network settings because it has nothing to do with my dropout issue. Who knows the repercussion of modifying the network has to my other IoT devices. Importantly, the dropout resolved itself automatically after the 14.10 patch has been installed and the performance has been great so far. My customer feedback to SONOS
Hi, I have. Sonos Arc with Sonos One surrounds connected to a LG OLED C2 TV. I get loss of audio intermittently when fast forwarding through adverts on recorded TV programmes and movies. When I switch off HDMI-CEC or eARC the sound returns.Anybody else having this issue, and have you got a solution?

I am building a new home. I am not looking for a high end theater set up. Attached is my floor plan. I plan to use a soundbar, sub-woofer, and 2 ceiling speakers for TV viewing. Note TV is in the corner. I would use two ceiling speakers which are in marked in red with an amp. It is my understanding the ceiling speakers should be behind the seating area. Does that seem accurate? My second option would be to add two more speakers (blue) and play only music through the whole room with 4 speakers. The room measures 26’8” x 20’6”. Can I have the blue speakers off for the TV and all 4 on for music. Can I accomplish this with one amp? Thanks.
Hi! I am having issues connecting my Sonos Amp (Black) to my Klipsch SW-311 10-Inch Subwoofer (or vice-versa). I currently have two Klipsch speakers and the Klipsch Subwoofer connected to the Sonos Amp. Both speakers play but I am getting no sound from the subwoofer. The subwoofer is connected to the sub port on the Sonos Amp and the LFE port on the sub. The sub plays when connected to my Yamaha system but doesn't play when connected to the Sonos Amp. Is my sub's connection wrong? Will a sub with a built-in amp not work with the Sonos Amp? What am I doing wrong? Help please... Jale01
We have been using the Arc in surround setup for quite a long while, but recently we have been experiencing problems that it echo’s at times. It is very sporadic. But the two back speakers (Ones) are slightly out of sync. It always happens when watching TV, but today for the first time also happened playing music.The solution for it is to basically to turn the arc off and on (i.e. pull the power and reconnect it). Then it all works perfectly again… sometimes for a few weeks, sometimes for a few days.The Arc itself is connected wired and the two Ones and the Sub are connected through Wifi. We have a Boost.Anyone have any experience with this and perhaps know a solution? I’ve not changes any settings. I’ve played with the lip sych setting when it happens, but that seems unrelated.
Hello all, my Playbar (and system) on S1 is still going great. We mainly stream Netflix etc over in built TV or Nvidia Shield Pro (even YouTube in 5.1).There's a few films I'd like to own in 4k and this comes with the DTS conundrum so for me a Blueray player that downmixes to 5.1 is acceptable.So that brings me to the Samsung M9500. Anyone on here still use one and is it.a decent player?, they goo for a big premium ove the K8500 (still UHD).Thanks for any comments.
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 ?
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
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!
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!
