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.php?t=30521 and I do see the possible conflict if the behavior would change drastically, but I think this last suggestion is a win-win. Regarding the volume, I also suffered from the player having extremely high volume when regrouping it after autoplay kicked in. This is also not what one would expect IMO, and tends to scare the shit out of people 🙂 This suggestion would probably mitigate that.
