I have existing S1 products and never had any problems all wired with Ethernet.
Just bought Beam, and three other components for TV surround.
Got the Beam. The S2 app sees it when add product but the next step takes forever while the device is making the loud “chimes” and then disconnects.
I have say I can only get to that point after powering off all of the S1 product because the lame S2 app always just sends me to the S1 app.
To add to the confusion. The S1 app can try to add the Beam as well. With it I can pick add product, it shows the Beam and when it gets to the point it says to press the “infinity symbol” button and hear chime, I do that, it waits a min or so and gives me an error.
I‘ve tried all suggestions I can find in knowledge base and community. Went through the chat bit to create a ticket.
I am not liking what I’m seeing so far especially with the different apps. It seems running S1 and S2 doesn’t really work very well.
Any thoughts, suggestions, similar experiences?
I spent $1500 on multiple devices for the 5.1 surround solution and waiting for the other devices. Maybe one of them will work indicating I have just a bad Beam?
it is a shame if I have to go with another solution… I’ve really loved Sonos until this experience.
Even if I get everything working I don’t know if I’m going to want to use two apps. Can you group S1 and S2 devices to play through a service like Spotify?
