I’m having an issue with the volume of the system going up way too high when playing a playlist and it’s the 3rd or 4th song on the list. It gets so high that I can’t leave music playing without having the phone in hand to turn it down when this happens. It’s gets so loud almost full volume but the volume setting stays same, just acts like somehow the content volume is changing. I have to skip song to fix issue. It happens every time. Anyone else with this issue? Im curious how to resolve this.
Hi,I’m looking for some help.I’ve recently just upgraded my setup to a new LG OLED55CS6LA OLED TV, my Sonos Beam is connected to HDMI 2 (the ARC port) and for the first few days worked without any issues.Starting last night - the Beam would just randomly disconnect and revert back to the TV Speaker completely randomly. I have tired resetting both the Beam and the TV to factory settings, using a different HDMI cable but it is still dropping out randomly. Less frequently than last night but the issue is still there. It’s intermittent and difficult to replicate without watching the TV for a while. Is there any known compatibility issues with LG TV’s? My Samsung never had any problems, I have emailed LG for support but just seems strange as it’s a brand new TV.When it dropped out last night these were the messages I got on the Sonos App below. Tonight- I’ve worked out if I reboot just the TV it fixes it. Until it happens again!!
I have a surround sound setup with a Sonos Beam and two Sonos One speakers. It has been working great for the past year or so and just recently the Sonos One speakers have been disconnected from the system. I reset my router, performed a factory reset on all three speakers, reconnect everything, and then when I try to setup surround, I keep getting a message that “There was a problem. Check network connection and power.” Network has no issues and all speakers are connected to power (I’ve tried this process a number of times as well). I’m thinking the WiFi receiver in one (or both) of the Sonos One speakers is having issues. At one point, I was able to reconnect the surround setup (doing the same exact process), but then the next day speakers weren’t connected. It’s frustrating because I can connect all speakers to the network, and listen on each speaker individually or together. But when I try to “Setup Surrounds” it has an error and my only option is to exit the setup or try again. Wh
Hey Sonos gurus! I’ve read through all of the outdoor TV wiring setup topics and couldn’t find a solution to my current setup and what I’d like to do. I’ve got a home with a detached garage that is about 100 feet from the house.Current Setup:HouseLiving Room - Playbar with 2 surrounds (Play:1’s) and SUB Attached to the back of the house: Connect:Amp + 2 Sonance Outdoor Speakers 1 Play:1 in master bedroom.GarageSonos Connect attached to an AV receiver with Left/Center/Right speakers. The connect is “hardwired” via a mesh access point. I am adding a TV mounted inside my garage with an extra long-arm to swing out via a second interior garage door for outdoor movie nights. My garage is a 1-car garage with doors on either side to allow for a second car to be parked inside the fence line. Ideal Setup: I’d love to be able to use the Connect setup (Left/Center/Right + Receiver) in combination with the Connect:Amp setup (2 Solance speakers) to play the audio from the outdoor TV. I do not believ
This is a completely speculative inquiry that cannot be validated at this time, but I'm curious as to whether people believe it to be conceivable. Based on what I've observed and what's forthcoming, it appears to be a significant likelihood.Sonos acquired the voice assistant business Snip some time ago, and it is now seeking a leader for its Home Theater OS division. While considering how consumers may subsequently utilise their own voice assistant to control not only music but also televisions, I recalled that Matter has also been delayed till this Fall.Suddenly, I realised something because of this. What if Sonos takes advantage of this and creates not just a music/television voice assistant, but a full-fledged home voice assistant that will have access to a plethora of Matter-compatible devices this fall, thereby rendering Sonos independent of third-party voice assistants such as Google, Alexa, and Siri?It will be intriguing to observe how this develops and whether it becomes a real
I had this issue before and I gave up on the product but after a few months, replugged it in and it worked fine. My sound system had been working fine for many months and I got the Sonos Sub which I loved but now randomly this issue has appeared again.Sonos beam keeps flashing a white light even though I have it connected via ethernet cable to the router. I’ve tried unplugging the router as well as the Beam. I can’t even factory reset the beam (doesn’t matter how long I hold on to the join/infinity button, it keeps flashing white). Very frustrating as I got the subs + 2x SL ones to pair and now none of them can connect to my TV.Diagnostic number: 197347082
Hi everyone, After working for weeks, my Sonos Arc won't connect to my LG C1. The HDMI is the official one.I'm using the correct HDMI port.All settings are correct , and I've turned everything problematic off. Nothing will get me past the testing connection screen. I've factory reset my TV and my ARC and tried just about everything but I'm at a huge loss for what to do next. Any guidance you can provide would be hugely appreciated.
I have speech enhancement turned on with the arc, but I'm still trying to find out how to hear dialogue better. Is it possible to have a Sonos one SL or another less expensive speaker configured to exclusively play voices?Has anyone else ever experienced the arc with only one back speaker? In that case, how did that sound?
Hi, I have a Sonos Ray connect to my Samsung TV the volume control on the Samsung. One remote does not seem to function using the optical output. I’m not able to control the volume. I’ve tried setting up the universal remote. It’s not recognising it in the option when I try doing the power test. It works when I connect my Spotify account to the Sonos Ray and I am able to control the volume using the Samsung one remote, but I can’t control the volume on the Samsung TV. I have already researched the forum but couldn’t find a suitable solution that worked. Please advise
Wonder if any one can help. I have just purchased the beam gen2 I have a Roku streamer approx 6 years old and a Panasonic txp42st30b with hdmi arc that's also about 6/7 years old. I know my Roku can play 5.1 as I had it setup on my old amp. Issue is whenever I set it to play anything other than stereo it doesn't work. I hear the 'click' when scrolling through the menu but when I play the actual program I get nothing unless I set audio output to stereo.
SystemLG G2 TVApple 4kARC + Gen 3 Sub, x L + R ONE SLSI just updated to the lasted firmware 14.18 and when i stream Disney Plus with certified ATMOS i only get Dolby Plus 5.1. When i entaille update, it was just saying i have Dolby PCM 5.1 until i closed the app, restarted the TV and checked Digital Sound Output option on the TV was set to Auto. I changed to passthrough and there is an issue with LG where this option then only produces 7.1. So after reading this forum users recommended setting it to Auto which then enabled ATMOS before i update to 14.18. I switched back to Passthrough and it had the same effect, so i switched back to auto and rather than it being Dolby 5.1 PCM its now Dolby Plus 5.1 instead of ATMOS? eARC is enabled. I can only think its something to do with the update?
Hi, I just got my Sonos Arc (without sub). I was wondering how to tune Trueplay if you have 3 corner walls only. So my wall looks like:Front: where the tv is and the window at the backLeft: Concrete side wall with the couchBack: Couch with a wall (this is where I sit to watch)Right: Open spaceShould I tune on three walls or also do some tuning on the right side even though it is open space?
Hi, I have an issue where the speakers in the back and the sub gets deactivated by them selfs almost every day i my home theater set up. This is always at the first use of the day and never in the middle of playing a sound.Is this normal? I always have to activate them manually in the app. When I get home they are blinking slowly with green.I use the arc, sub gen 3 and 2 of the one sl.
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) ?
Hi there,Recentely I bought the Sonos Beam gen 2 soundbar for my LG C1 tv. I connected it with a HDMI ARC cable and I made it surround with my two SonoS one's. The moment I wanted to experience the Dolby Atmos, I figured Netflix is only showing me Dolby Vision and no Dolby Atmos. The moment I unplug the soundbar Netflix is showing Dolby Atmos (since my tv supports this). I wonder if I am doing something wrong, but I thought Netflix would show me Atmos with this setup. Can somebody help me with this or explain why this isn't working? If you need any more information, let me know!Thank you in advance!
I just moved homes, and we have ATT Fiber WIFI. When I go to connect my Playbar to WIFI as we did in our previous home, I get an error once I enter the WIFI password. I plan to swtich the route to 2.4ghz tonight to see if that will solve the issue, but I wanted to see if there were any alternative suggestions. I am unable to hardwire the Playbar, so in an attempt to alleviate the connectivity issues I purchased a Sonos Boost so I could run everything through the Sonosnet. The issue, however, is that with the Sonos app not able to connect to the WIFI, the functionality of the app is limited, including the ability to add a Boost. This has become endlessly frustrating, so I wanted to see if there were any solutions that I haven’t thought of yet. I appreciate it in advance!
Hey all. I have just put a slim Samsung 43’ in the playroom and am going to place my Beam underneath it. Question is; which mount would you recommend for invisible cabling (my electrician would bury the cabling behind the wall)? I am between the Sonos mount, the Flexson and the Sanus… my main question is which would match this TV? The TV is the AU9000 model Thanks in advance for reading and hopefully responding
Basically every other time I turn on my TV the Beam(Gen 1) will not connect with the TV. I then need to unplug the HDMI cable from the TV and plug it back in for it to connect, or doing the Tv setup in the SONOS app also helps with this issue. If I try to fix it within the app, I also need to do the TV setup two times, the first time it will say there was an error, but when I try again it works. I usually just end up removing the cable and putting it back, since that is much quicker.The annoying thing is it happens basically just every other time I turn on the TV. Both the Beam and the TV are running all the latest updates, this has now been going on for about a year. I have tried resetting the TV but that did not help.I have also noticed that when I turn off the TV, sometimes the LED on the Beam turns green, sometimes it stays white.I'm using the HDMI cable that came with the Beam to connect the TV, but maybe changing the cable could help.TV model: TCL 50P815 Running Android TV
Hi Sonos Community I recently bought a Lg G2 and today will receive a Sonos Arc. I’m thinking to connect to LG G2 a HDMI eARC splitter with an optical output to connect a Logitech z906. Is it posible to use Sonos arc with Logitech z906 with Lg G2? I have a Nvidia Shield TV Pro connected in HDMI port 1. I use it with Kodi and Seren addon. Where do I find a compatible HDMI eARC splitter ??many thanks for your help
Hello,I’ve had a Beam Gen 1 for over 4 years now and never had any issues with the sound quality in that time. I recently moved house and since then I’m finding that when watching TV or movies I’m struggling to hear what is being said. It’s really quite subtle in that it’s not all speech all the time, it seems that certain things are worse than others, for example one word in a sentence you might really struggle to pick up or if there is a scene with someone on the phone you can’t make out what the person on the other end is saying. I never had this problem before I moved house and I'm wondering whether the Beam took a knock which has caused a small fault with one of the 4 speakers or something similar that is causing quality or part of the audio range to be affected. Speech Enhancement is already turned on and i’ve also tried Night Mode which has not helped at all.Is there anyway to do perform a diagnostic on unit that could detect faults in any of the components?
Hi,My Sonos Beam is connected via a HDMI cable to the TV. But my Router/Moden is at the other end of the flat and I cannot connect my Sonos Beam to the home network via an Ethernet cable.Now my question is: Can I connect my Sonos Beam via WiFi to my home network?Thanks
Hi There I bought a new Sonos Beam. It connected initially to the Sonos app on iOS. It then just disappeared and now it won’t reconnect and cannot be found. I have unplugged the Ethernet, HDMI and tried resetting the system but nothing. It works with TV via the HDMI but isn’t registering on the Sonos app. Help!
