I’ve set up a Beam to our TV and we have 2 moves that are connected through the Beam. The TV remote can control the volume for the Beam but will not control the moves. We are wanting them to sync together so the tv remote can control all volume. We have grouped the beam and moves, but the remote still only controls the Beam volume. How do we sync them so the remote will control all devices together?
speaker/theatre layout in open plan basement
Hi all, we have a decent sized basement that is going to be pretty open plan. It’s pretty much an L Shape, and the plan is for one side of the L to be a home gym/workout area, the other side a TV/sofas area, and in the “corner” of the L is a bar. You’d be able to stand at the bar and look straight ahead at the TV, or look to your right and see the gym area.for the TV set up i would plan on soundbar, sub and surrounds. Initial thought is that surrounds would be positioned focused on the sofa. However if we ever hosted a party (think super bowl or otherwise) or whatever we would expect people to be sitting at the bar or perched behind the sofas. Even home alone id probably like to be able to sit at the bar and have the tv on. So i am also not sure what to do about speaker placement. Would adding an extra “zone” for the bar (and then grouping with the TV) do the job in bringing the tv sound to the bar area? Or will this distort, cause echo, etc? Putting the surrounds back by the bar woul
Will Sonos Beam Gen 2 work with ATV4K & KDL48W650D
EDIT: Wrong TV model number, it is KDL-48WD65xI am buying a soundbar for my old mom, to make voices more clear in movies and series.She has an Apple TV 4K gen 3 (the new model) which she uses for watching everything.The TV is a KDL-48WD65x from 2016 which is only used as a monitor for the ATV.The TV has 1 HDMI ARC port, it supports Dolby Digital Plus.So I am guessing the setup would be:AppleTV 4K > TV HDMI 2 - TV HDMI 1 (ARC) > Sonos Beam Gen 2 HDMICan’t find mentions of audio passthrough of dolby signals, so not sure if the TV is compatible?Is this guaranteed to work, or are there possible pitfalls with a TV this old?

Playbar keeps cutting out - likey overheating - suggestions?
My play bar from 2018 has been cutting out. I suspect it's overheating because the longer I unplug it, the longer it runs again after being plugged back in.Does anyone have any suggestions on causes or how to repair it?Another possibility, but I don't know if it has a temperature sensor somewhere, might be faulty temperature reading.
Play music from receiver to arc and one sl
I would like to play music (both radio and turn table) on my Arc soundbar as well as my One SL speakers. Here is what I tried and it has not gone well: First I purchased a Port and a receiver. The receiver I purchased did not have a Digital Audio Input, which the port instructions say you need. I then purchased a Denon receiver that does have a digitial audio input but you have to hook it up to a tv to set it up. I just want to play radio and use my turntable from the receiver to the soundbar/speakers I have set up. How do I do this? What receiver should I use. Thanks for your help!
Multiple Era 100
Is it possible to setup more than 2 Era 100 Speakers in one room with and Arc soundbar and Sub? I purchased a 3rd and everytime I set it up, I select the correct room and instead of adding it there, it creates another room with the same name and adds a 2 at the end. Am I doing something wrong or can you only have a max of 2 in each room?
playbar play one and sub have humming sound
Out of the blue my surround setup started humming during tv play back only connected via optical input. It changes to a buzz of changing input type to pcm. Noise changes based on how control sees the sound. No buzz when using Dolby 1.0 starts when it switches to 2.0 Diagnostic number 1730440927.

Help I have a beam gen 1 and 2 one sl as a basic home cinema system. The connection between the three keeps droppingI keep factory resetting the one sl"s, one shows then when I connect the other both diappear. I can tell you how many times I have rebooted. It has worked fine for months but recently (updates?), nothing works. I am so frustrated that I am close to chucking them in the bin! The Best I get is 2 showing in the app but not all three! When connect the third, that's when it goes wrong. Any suggestions as this is supposed to be plug n play. The router is WiFi 6, in the same room and no physical barriers, so don't pass the buck and blame the router. Help
Is this a solution for being able to easily switch back to TV speakers from Beam ?
Upto now I've been toggling CEC (viera link) on and off to switch between Beam and TV speakers as a work around. Would adding an HDMI switch into the connection with an empty port work ? ie switch to the empty port when not wanting to use Beam, or would the TV just send the signal to the empty port anyway ?
Roam Bluetooth Connection to laptop not working
Both my MacBook Pro and Megaseg (DJ software) “see” the Bluetooth connection, but there is nothing coming out of the speaker. When I disconnect the Bluetooth, the internal speakers cut in and work fine.Does the speaker need to be disconnected / isolated from wifi in order to engage bluetooth? Is the bluetooth confused by other connections (phone, iPad etc) ?

Cannot connect Sonos one SL
We have had three Sonos products on one system but recently the Sonos One SL disappeared from the system for no apparent reason. We have tried to re-add it to the system by resetting the factory settings. The app says it recognizes the product and has added it to our system; it also says that the product may not appear initially and, if so, to un-plug the product then turn it back on again to complete set up. I have done that several times but the product is still not appearing on the system with the other products. I have also rebooted my wi-fi but that has made no difference.What can I do?
Play 1 Speakers and Sub no longer work after upgrading software on Playbar
Hi All,I recently upgraded the software on my Sonos Playbar however this had the effect of my Play 1 speakers and Sub no longer working. All of my speakers and TV are using the same internet access. I also removed the speakers and sub from the ‘Sonos’ app on my phone and re-installed. I also disconnected my internet and factory reset the speakers in an effort to get them to work but with no luck. I understand I can no longer upgrade the software on my speakers. Lastly, my speakers and sub do work when I stream music via Spotify so the issue is getting the speakers and sub to work via my TV (LG OLEG). Any help that could be provided would be appreciated.Cheers,SH
