When I play music via Beam I need tu turn the TV on otherwise I cannot play music. Also when I ask Google to play music from YouTube music the Beam responds but does not play music unless I have the TV one. Is there a setting so I don't have to have the TV on to listen to music?
Hi, I have some old movies at home that I would like to watch with my family, but they have sound in DTS-HDMA, which my soundbar and TV do not support. So, my solution is to convert the DTS-HDMA to Opus. However, when I start playing the movie, the application displays "Dolby Digital Plus," "Dolby Digital," or "PCM Multichannel 5.1." I'm wondering if this is normal. My TV is configured with eARC and pass-through, but I don't know if that helps. I've tried everything, and I'm confused.
Sonos Beam will not connect to my system. I did a factory reset on the Beam, attached to router with a cable . It gets recognized. I then unplug the Ethernet cable and it doesn't connect. I have 3 Moves, 1 playbar, sonos 1 and a Era 100. No issues with them. Just the Beam

I saw a video where someone used a 300's in a stereo set up along side an arc system (subs and rears) and mentioned it was okay and did provide more wider channels. Has others tried this? Does it "work" as a work around? I assume you'll lose some precision from the arc but would you gain wider channels?
I have the following setup in backyard: Amp connected to outdoor 3rd party speakersAmp LFE connected to dedicated sub amp LFE input I plan to add another Amp and 2 more speakers to create surround sound for movies. If I wanted to add another sub with its own dedicated amp, can I do the following?1. Y-split the LFE output of the primary Amp that's powering my current speakers and connect the split connection to 2nd sub amp?2. Can I use the LFE output of the 2nd Amp (powering surround speakers) and connect it to the LFE input of the 2nd sub amp? TIA!

I currently have a playbar and 2 Play:1’s that make up my general media setup. I am buying the EPSON LS11000. My goal is to go from Xbox Series X to AV Receiver, then from AV receiver to Sonos and projector. Currently I don’t have the AV receiver. I’d prefer to spend under 2k on any new components (av receiver, port, etc) Can someone tell me the cleanest setup to accomplish the above? TIA
Hi everyone, I have a Sonos Beam (Gen 2) connected via optical to my Sony TV (it has no (e)ARC connection) coupled with 2 Era 100s and I am trying to set them up correctly so that I can hear music (streaming from my NAS) and watch TV (Netflix, Disney+, Prime, cable TV) without constantly fondling with the Surround settings when switching between both play modes.I found settings for watching TV (in the Surround settings TV level up to +10 or more, Music level to -10 or less, Music Playback Full), but when I then switch to streaming music the sound only seems to come from the Beam and the Era 100s as Surround speakers are not noticeable. When I setup everything for listening to music (in Surround Settings TV and music level to 0, Music Playback still Full) and then switch to TV, voices are overshadowed by the background music and in general to low in volume.It's also hard for me to understand which settings influence what. E.g. for Speech Enhancement I hear no difference, likewise for th
My Beam 2 is only outputting as Stereo PCM and not Dolby Atmos. I’ve been through numerous discussions/instructions to find out why but drawing blanks. I have a PS5 and Sky Stream and have the Beam 2 in the HDMI arc (2) slot. My tv is an LG Oled55c7v. Key settings - outputting to hdmi/optical set as auto and on. What am I doing wrong?

I have a Sonos Arc, since almost 2 moths now. Since a week (maybe since update to 15.4?), our Sonos Arc’s status LED is flashing orange and it is making a popping/clicking sound (in accord with the LED flashing) from the right speaker, every time before it commences to play audio (e.g. from TV, stream via Spotify (Sonos or Spotify app) or Airplay.I performed a factory reset, but this didn’t help.
