LPCM with Arc, LG C2 and Sony UBP-X700/M
Hi all. Has anyone got LPCM from DTS blu-rays using these pieces? I can get Dolby TrueHD and Atmos, but when I play a DTS disc all I get is “surround pcm.” I know the LG can’t play DTS, but I thought I’d be able to get 5.1 LPCM. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sonos Roam as Surround Speakers
I realise there are previous threads about this, but I can’t find one which has not been closed for further comments, so I’m having to create a new thread to add my voice.Feature request Please enable Sonos Roams to act as rear surround speakers in a home theatre setup (or enable this on a future generation of the product if the current gen does not include necessary internal hardware).Why?1. Not everyone wants rear surrounds installed all the time. I only occasionally watch a movie where I want surrounds. It would be much easier for me to repurpose Sonos Roam’s from elsewhere in the house to serve as temporary surrounds for a few hours than it would with any other Sonos speaker. Furthermore, other companies seem to think there is a market for customers who want temporary battery powered surround speakers - e.g. see Philips Fidelio 7.1.2 and JBL Bar 5.1 / 9.1 / 800 / 1000. 2. Even for those who want surrounds installed all the time, I am expect there are some who would prefer to use sp
Playbar stopped responding to Samsung IR Remote
I have two Samsung Smart TVs each with one PlayBar connected. For at least the past five years I have been using the Samsung IR remotes that came with each TV to control the volume of the PlayBar connected to that TV.Yesterday, BOTH PlayBars stopped responding to the volume + button but not the volume - button on each remote.I have power cycled the TVs, PlayBars, and reconnected the remotes. The issue remains. The PlayBar will recognize the volume + button one time to connect but after that it does not respond to the volume + key.I find it strange that something like this would happen with two different systems at the same time.
Sonos ARC and spotify loudness
I just received an ARC and am enjoying it but I have one nagging issue - when I play Spotify through my google TV, or directly through the sonos app, the music is very quiet. If I play it through the Xbox x Spotify app, it’s a good 20-30% louder. Am I missing something? I can just use my Xbox but the google tv is what I use the most. The Xbox shows up as Dolby digital 5.1, and the other two come up as stereo pcm - could that be why it’s louder on the Xbox? I’m really at a loss.
Only Stereo PCM with Arc Sub One SLs on Xbox Series X, PS5, and Apple TV; using LG 77 inch C2
I just set up a new LG 77 inch C2 Oled with an Arc, Sub (G3) and 2 One SLs, but everything is showing up as Stereo PCM, whether from my Apple TV, Xbox Series X, or PS5. I’m new to Sonos (and LG), so I apologize if this is a stupid question.
How to turn off soundbar when listening to music
I have the Arc + Sub + 2x Ones setup as a surround system. Which is great for TV. But for music I can’t for the life of me work out how to turn off the Arc soundbar so it doesn’t interfere with the stereo presence of the Ones + Sub.I’ve triedsetting Ones to “full” (not “ambient”) setting "Music Level" in "Surround Audio" to be +15But I can stil hear the Arc.Furthermore if I turn up the Ones to +15I have to pump the Sub to +15 AND the Sub still gets lost so I have to boost bass in EQ as well and then it sounds 'off' AND if I don't reset the Sub and bass EQ to 0 each time then the next time someone watches TV (think kids in the morning) the whole house shakes. AND I can still hear the Arc.So that's not workable.How do I get just the Ones in stereo + Sub for music playback? Surely I don't have to disconnect/reconnect the whole surrount system and re-do Trueplay each time I swap between listening to music and TV do I?? Please tell me I’m missing something!Thanks for your help everyone.
sony x900f, series x, only getting pcm 5.1 not atmos HELP please.
hi everyone, just got my new sonos set up, went full in. arc, sub, 2 1’s for rear (along with a couple others for house).so far I am loving it, however I cannot seem to figure out how to get atmos (always showing pcm 5.1)I have an 85 inch Sony x900f which has an e-arc input. what am I doing wrong? Netflix & Prime shows audio as only 5.1 when browsing any title. Xbox audio settings say “dolby atmos for home theatre (hdmi only)”This might help explain better…..Peaky Blinders on the Netflix app built into tv shows 5.1Peaky blinders on the Netflix xbox app shows atmos ………. why? and how can I fix this? I would prefer not to have to run Netflix thru xbox to get atmos sound when available. thank you to anyone who replies! hope everyone has a wonderful holiday!
Will Samsung QN850B (from Sam's club) work with Arc?
We have multiple existing Sonos products and have just purchased an Arc to use with the new TV we are purchasing. We want to get a Samsung, as we use Philo as a streaming service and they support it in their Apps, where no other TV maker does. We are looking at a SAMSUNG 75" Class QN850B-Series Neo QLED 8K Smart TV - QN75QN850BFXZA at Sam’s club. It is a 2022 model, and it is not a FRAME TV. I am aware of the issues with older Samsung TVs and Arc, and just want to make sure they have been resolved before I move forward with purchasing this TV. Thanks in advance for any help with this!
New Sonos Arc oil/grease on side grille
Hi,Recently purchased a brand new sealed Sonos Arc and upon opening, I’ve noticed some oil/grease marks on the side grills. I spoke to the retailer who is well known in the UK and a swap was arranged. Just opened the new unit today and the same issue. The retailer has been sent the pictures and they are going to swap it again for me tomorrow.Anyone here experienced similar issues? It’s annoying as I’ve never had issues with Sonos and the packaging was intact on both deliveries including all seals etc. Thanks.
Can I connect both a smart TV and analog speakers to the connect:AMP?
My parents in their TV room have a Sonos connect:AMP and 2 old school analog speakers to listen to music in that room, but the TV was never connect. I now wanted to buy a SmartTV for them for christmas, as next to smart functionality I thought it would be able to connect to Sonos, yet found on the internet that not every Sonos is connectable. My question now is: is there any way to be able to connect the (not yet bought) smartTV to the sonos connect:AMP, with the 2 analog speakers also being connected? I now the connect:AMP only has one input, yet hope there is a kind of workaround. Please help me out, so I can give my parents a better movie watching experience! BTW they do have a Sonos Five, yet in another room...
sonos arc and sonos 5
Hi all. I have just bought the arc and have paired it with 2x sonos 5s. I wondered when using the 5s as surround if placing them to the far right and left of the room to front of room would work as well as placing to the rear of the room. Does anyone else have this setup please? Many thanks

Sonos Arc - Volume Control via FIOS Remote
I have a Sonos Arc soundbar. My Fios remote only lets me increase the volume but not decrease it. The only way I can decrease the volume is by using the app on my phone. I spoke to a Sonos Tech and he told me that I needed to contact Frontier to have them do something with my remote. I did and was told that they do not have a remote to do what I want. They said they no longer have my FIOS system and there was nothing they could do. Is there a Universal remote control that I could use? I prefer to use a remote that reduce the volume via my Phone.
Sonos Arc Turntable Capability
My best friend has a Sonos Arc and I want to surprise him with a turntable but I have read you can not pair a Bluetooth turntable with the Arc. I have a cheap sound bar and play my Bluetooth turntable through it with no issues. Is that possible with the Arc? I am leaning towards the Audio-Technica AT-LP60XBT-BK. Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks! Eric
Wiring Help in New Home Build
I am working with the low voltage installer currently on a plan for speaker placement. I will be putting in ceiling speakers in various places, but the one area I need some clarification on is the main living room.My planned setup is as follows:TV, Arc Soundbar, Sub and x2 Wall Speakers connected to a Sonos Amp as surroundCurrently on the plan all speaker wiring is home run back to a panel in the basement. I had planned to put multiple sonos amps in that location wired to ethernet. Can I do this with the TV surrounds as well? It is unclear to me if they need to be physically connected to the TV/Arc or if being on the same network will allow me to pair them up as surrounds. This obviously changes where I would home run that speaker pair to.Thanks!
Sub Mini and Surrounds missing
V14.20 two instances dropouts/missing sub&surrounds since setting it up. One happend after trueplay retuning when I was gonna use the system later in the evening the surrounds were missing. Today the surrounds and sub were missing. Nothing else has happend with the router, I have different SSIDs and tons of IoT devices that report no issues. Got Beam gen 2, 2 Play:1s and a Sub mini. No mesh. Wifi6 enabled asus router. Connected to LG CX55 via eARC. Connected the beam on ethernet on the last dropout. Seemingly this is the solution for the “wireless” system. (And this time I didn’t have to reset the surrounds, just a reboot of them, the sub and the router.)
Issue with angled ceiling. What is the best setup? And How?
Hey guys!I am moving to a new place and in my head I am planning how and where to setup my TV and my Sonos Gear (Sonos Arc, Sub, One surrounds).The living room is quite large, has a lot of big windows, angled ceilings and therefore a lack of opportunities where to place the TV with the Sonos system. I highlighted the area in the photo where TV is supposed to be mounted. (please note that all the furniture in the photo will be replaced.)I am concerned that the sound is going to be compromised due to the rooms setup. So I would appreciate some suggestions and opinions on this matter. Thank you and cheers!
Setting up the Sonos Soundbar to be controlled by the Firestick Remote volume control
So, there were not any explicit answers that I could find. I found it when I prayed about it.So:On the Firestick: Home>Settings>Equipment Control>You my have to enter your PIN>Manage Equipment>Add Equipment>Scroll Down to Soundbar>Select Sonos.It walks you through the rest. It took about five minutes.
Multiroom setup across S1 and S2 on airplay
Hi,I currently have a Beam Gen 1 set up with two IKEA Symfonisk bookshelf speakers as my surround sound system. I have just upgraded my TV and wanted to upgrade my sound system as well. So I bought a used Play 5 Gen 1 to utilize the trade up offer. And now I have my eyes on a used Sonos package with an Arc, Sub Gen 3 and One. I was wondering if I could downgrade the Beam Gen 1 to the S1 app to pair it with the Play 5 Gen 1 and One and then play with the rest of the S2 system over AirPlay? Either through Spotify or Apple Music. Worst case Youtube.
Beam + Sub + 5’s vs Stereo Paired 5’s + Sub
Hi everyone,I’m wondering if I should set up beam + sub + 5’s as surrounds on my TV OR whether I should have beam just on TV then have separate ‘music’ setup with stereo paired 5’s + sub. I listen mostly to music and I feel the latter option is the best use of the 5’s and subs for music as they’re stereo paired vs the first configuration where the 5’s are not stereo paired… What does everyone think?
