Beam Gen 2 crashing
I have a Beam Gen 2 (and a pair of Symfonisks for surround), Nvidia Shield TV Pro and a Sony (XBR 65A8G). The setup is the Shield via HDMI to the TV, and the TV (arc) via HDMI to the Beam. In this configuration things work most of the time, but occasionally, the Beam gets into a state where it seems to get ‘stuck’ and outputs a noise that sounds like “dut-dut-dut-dut-dut” (rapidly and continuously) for about 20 seconds, and then it crashes/reboots (no longer controllable via the Sonos app, and the TV notices the absence and switches to its own speaker) and a few seconds later, it is back up (and controllable in the app, and the TV recognizes it is back). This happens randomly - usually when it happens it happens a few times in a row, but then won’t happen again for several days. It isn’t the content, as I can ‘rewind’ and replay whatever was happening when the crash occurred and it works no problem.I’ve tried different HDMI cables - problem persists.I’ve tried adding a splitter (HDFur
Sub distortion on tv when streaming through Roku
I have a Roku ultra that streams to my Samsung tv. I use an HDMI to push sound from my tv to my sonos beam. I have a sub connected wirelessly to the beam. My issue is that I get consistent distortion during low range “ominous” scenes during action movies, Stranger Things, etc. I’m stumped as to how I resolve. No issues when streaming music. I’m guessing I’m missing something simple but I can’t seem to figure this out! Any help appreciated.
Arc disconnects from system after installing Sonos voice assistant
I have a Arc, sub, and two SL One grouped for surround sound. After the update of Sonos voice assistant every couple days the sound bar stops playing Sonos Radio or Deezer and does not show up in the Sonos app. It is not clear but the OS might be rebooting and then connects back. I had the same thing with a SL one that the SonosNet is started from.I removed the Sonos voice assistance from all of the speakers to see if this helps but does not. This happens when streaming music vs watching TV.
Sonos Arc Volume Issue
Hello Everyone,I’ve owned the Arc for about two months now, I’ve noticed at times in order to properly hear what's being displayed on the TV I have to crank the volume high. I’ve tried everything, from resetting the Arc to changing the settings in the app and the TV. The TV that I’m using the Arc with is the Sony A90J. I had the beam before and NEVER experienced this issue. Thank You
samsung not connecting to SONOS over eARC after casting music to Sonos
I have a Samsung 2022 The Frame TV and Sonos ARC. After casting music to the Sonos from an app like pandora, and then disconnecting from the Sonos, I cannot hear audio through the TV. It requires a full power-cycle for the Samsung to recognize that the Sonos is connected over eARC. Has anybody seen this? I feel like the default behavior should be the eARC link is the highest priority sound source. Thanks,
Sub Gen 2 stopped working
My sub has been connected to my beam for well over a year and out of the blue last night it started making a loud static / white noise sound. I unplugged and restarted it and now the sound has stopped, but can’t get any audio through. I disconnected and reconnected the sub via the app. Reset the sub to factory settings, rebooted my router and tried connecting via a Ethernet cable, but nothing seems to work. I’m out of ideas… diagnostic number 213818091 thanks!

Actuellement niveau branchement :Port HDMI 2 (eArc) de la TV relié en direct à la Sonos ArcPort HDMI 1 de la TV branché en direct sur le OUT de la Philips Hue Sync BoxApple TV branchée au HDMI 2 de la Philips Hue Sync BoxTout fonctionne correctement : les films Netflix ou Disney Plus Atmos sortent en PCM multicanal Dolby 5.1 et la musique via Apple Music en Atmos (vérification via appli Sonos) - d’ailleurs pourquoi la musique est affichée en Atmos et pas les films ?

After hours of trying to get a stupid Beam soundbar working through surround speakers, i’ve given up. Over an hour with a Sonos tech and no one knows wtf they’re doing. meanwhile, i just hook in an appleTV and the speakers all sound fine. Sonos has the best sound when it works, but it never works for long. I’m constantly dealing with connection issues and this last one wasted several hours of one of the few days off i have.I’m returning this POS beam soundbar. i wish i could return my entire sonos system. the engineers at sonos are terrible and things never seem to get better. funny thing, i had this all set up just the night before and today it was all f’d up and sonos customer service had no idea after over an hour. Waste of time. i wouldn’t advise anyone get Sonos. i doubt Bose or any other system has the constant connection issues that Sonos can never seem to truly fix.Junk.
Samsung qn900a wont connect to Sonos arc
Just got this TV a couple months ago and initially had the same issue but ended up resolving it by unplugging the one connect box and reconnecting. After a power outage last night the sound bar is no longer being picked up by the tv. Theres no damage to it (surge protected) or the TV. For some reason the TV picks up that something is plugged in to the eARC slot, but it isn’t giving power to it. Has anyone else with this neo qled set up found a fix for this? I understand that this is a fairly common problem with Samsung TVs. I honestly wouldn’t have bought the TV had I known it would be giving me this problem.
Benefit To Wiring Amp To Sonos Arc?
Hey Everyone,I’ve got a Sonos Arc with a sub and Sonos AMP connected to ceiling speakers.The AMP and Sub are very close by to the Sonos Arc. Is there any benefit in putting an ethernet cable in between the Sonos ARC and AMP? Neither are connected directly to a router as I have another speaker wired to the router in another room to create SonosNet.I’d assume putting a cable in between the Sonos ARC and Amp would make it more reliable as the home theatre setup doesn’t need to communicate over Wifi.
intermittlently loosing sub
I had my arc and sub paired and working good. But seems after i unplugged and moved both, the sub pairs with the arc but then while using the subs comes and goes. I’ve unplugged, removed and reinstalled etc. can’t figure it out. Any ideas? Sub and arc are literally within 5 unblocked feet of each other. I’ve reset both speakers and all components of the internet - router and wifi.
Sound dropping to beam
I have a LG TV connected to a Sonos Beam via the HDMI-ARC port.When I first turn on my TV or when no sound is on the TV for a while, normally due to the screen saver coming on, the Beam is reporting no connection to the TV and the volume is set to zero when I look at the Beam via the app.I have to press the volume up button every time for the Beam to re-connect to the TV and sound to be heard again.How can I get it that the Beam keeps its connection and volume level even when the TV is off or the screen saver has kicked in ?
Beam (Gen 2) Annoying Issues
Hi all,My setup: Beam (Gen 2 - updated to latest version) + LG OLED B7 - connection ARC.I have this soundbar for a couple days now and there are a couple of annoying issues which maybe you guys can help out, please?Issue 1: Volume goes up/down “too quickly” when using the TV remote - When I use the SONOS app, I can put the volume up or down 1 point at a time, this seems to be fine, but when I put the volume up or down using the TV remove then it seems like it goes up 2 or even 3 points at a time with a single press. EG: the volume is a bit low, then I press volume up just once and now it’s just a bit higher than I would like to. I actually had the opposite issue with my previous Bose soundbar 500 where I had to press the volume up 4 or 5 times for the volume to go up significantly.Issue 2: I’m now unable to use any Bluetooth headphones with the TV as it always defaults to the SONOS Beam! I select my Bluetooth headphones, the sound connects to the headphones for a couple of seconds and
synfonisk not appearing in system when added
Hii recently got a couple of symfonisk lamps to provide surround sound to the beam I have. On first install a couple of yesterday, everything went great and I was super pleased 👍🏼 today when I logged into the Sonia app on iOS everything had disappeared. Anyway reset the app and added the bean back following the unplug approach the app steps you through. Perfect. Then I went to add the syfonisk lamp. I hard rest the synfonisk lamp and re added from scratch. It says it’s added successfully but it refuses to show within the system so I can’t create surround sound. I tried the same with the other lamp and the same thing has happened. It mentions unplugging them and plugging them back in again but that doesn’t help. 😢 Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you 😊
my Sub and rear symfonisks loses sync with Arc, very frustrating
I’ve had this setup for a year without any issues and now all of a sudden, my rears and subs syncs out with my arc…I can easily notice because I hear echoes and when I pause the movie or show it will continue to play for a second. Only resetting the power on my speakers fixes it then it comes back later randomly. What gives ? I didn’t pay $$$ for this sort of inconvenience.

Sonos Arc & Meraki Set Up
I recently purchased my first Sonos product, the Arc. My network is Meraki MX64 based with a PoE MS120-8lp switch and a MR36 AP. The set up instructions seemed simple enough but I could not get my iPad and Arc to connect to complete the install. With help from Sonos support and Meraki support, they connected right away.Here is the combined list of the instructions from Sonos and Meraki that brought it all together:Log in to the Meraki router. Open the Wireless tab. Select Firewall & traffic shaping. Under Layer 2 LAN Isolation, change the setting to Disabled Under Layer 3 Firewall Rules, change the setting for Local LAN to Allow. Under the SSID Configuration, change the setting Addressing and Traffic Client IP Assignment to Bridge modeI hope this helps anyone with a Meraki network who wants to get the Sonos working smoothly.
