I have recently bought a pair of One SL. Trying to connect it to my exisiting Home Theatre system.Current set up for HT is 1 x Playbar, 1 x Sub, 1x Amp.Amp is connected to 2 x in-ceiling speakers as surrounds. When I try to group the new speakers (tried both as Stereo Pair and individually) with the existing HT system, i can not do so.Get error message saying Unable to Connect Device. Try again.. Of note, no issues with internet connection. Have tried by turning off and on (both speakers and router) - but no success. Much appreciate any ideas/ suggestions.
I just got my Beam Gen2, and I connect it to my TV with HDMI (eARC) Port.My Xbox series X is connecting to another HDMI port on my TV.But I found that my Xbox not recognize any dolby atoms device, I did some research online, the above connection method should be able to do the bypass.See if anyone have this experience about it. Thanks
Hi all , newbie to Sonos, I’ve finally added two one sl’s to my beam gen 2 for a home cinema set up , now, I don’t really want surround sound while simply watching football or tv which is what’s happening now, is there a simple way of just having my beam on for general tv with no speaker sound?? And press of a button for say watching a movie to put cinema sound back on??? Also the stereo pair if I just want to listen to music through my speakers only??? Do I have to keep going on the app and change all the settings??? I can’t even find how to stop cinema pairing ??
I’m considering replacing my Bose Lifestyle 650 with an Arc Surround Set. I’m looking to take advantage of Atmos, Sonos streaming and improved connectivity with my LG C2.I already have a pair of Ones and a Gen 3 Sub.Has anyone made this move from the LS650 and can you share your experience? Was there a noticeable difference in the listening experience? Any regrets (besides the cost)?thanks!

I cant pair the arc and the symfonisk speakers in the sonos app. Strange enough the symfonisk speakers are installed but then i dont see the arc. When i restart the sonos app en turn on the tv i only see the arc but then i dont see the symfonisk speakers. This is getting me crazy. What is this??
Hi,So just recieved my Sonos ARC and was very disapointed to find that I have Audio delay when using it with my PS5 on any setting other than PCM but that means it is only using 2.1ch.Both are connected to my TV with the Sonos Arc connected to the HDMI ARC port.I have looked around already and found many with the same issue but most the posts are years old now so wanted to see if anyone knows a fix for this now?Would a HDMI Arc splitter of some sort help?I have heard of this HDFury Arcana thing, don’t fully understand it but is that something that potentially fix the issue?Sorry for my wording/terminology I am pretty new to trying to set such things up.TV model: Hisense QLED 50U7QFTUKThanks.
Hello all, so I have a beam, mini-sub and (2) ones setup in my home theater and it sounds amazing playing anything through TV. My concern is when I wish to play stereo audio only for music. What is the best settings configuration that will let me achieve stereo through my rear ONES only/mostly?For my rear sonos ones settings I have full selected instead of ambient. And music audio is maxed out all the way to the right (see pic below). It sounds pretty good I think but kinda loud. Is the maxed all the way to the right forcing too many dbs in a type of brick walling sound or is it just maxing the potential of the (2)one speakers? Any comments or suggestions would be much appreciated. Thank you
Got all my new Home theater stuff today. Arc,Sub, pair of 1s. Connected to my Samsung Frame via existing 30’ HDMI 2.1 cable as my conduit runs to the attic and back down to the front of my fireplace.first issue is that the HDMI didn’t fit the connection very well. It’s loose and if you move the sound bar, it disconnects. So just ordered another HDMI cable. we were about 2 hours into “No Time To Die” and the system went crazy. It sounded to me like all the speakers were being over driven and constantly cracking. It had to be at full volume. Sent my wife and dogs running to another room. I don’t know if it quit on it’s on or when I paused the movie but it felt like a minimum of 30 seconds. anyway after seeing others with the same issue with the Beams, I unplugged everything and went to bed. I’ve been waiting since the middle of summer to purchase the gear. I’m hoping Sonos tech support has some good answers when I call them otherwise I’ll be sorely disappointed.
I only get surround sound when I watch a freeview channel direct through my Sony tv. When I watch a programme through my BT box or my Xbox, I only get the sound from the sonos beam, not the 2 surround speakers. Does anyone know how I can resolve this issue?Thank-you.
When listening to music on the speakers via Amazon HD Music using the S2 app on the desktop to cue a playlist, the tv level slider does not change the volume of the playbar. It moves but nothing happens. The music level slider does alter the volume of the surrounds. I am unclear about this as I thought the tv level slider should control the volume of the playbar. The music level slider does not alter the volume of the playbar. When watching television, the tv level slider works to control the volume of the playbar and surrounds at the same time. Is this how it is meant to work?
I am about to purchase a new Samsung television . My current television has a Playbar and a gen. 1 Sub. connected . All are functioning as expected. My questions is: Should I uninstall these two Sonos devices before I connect them to the new television or is the set-up a simple “plug and play” procedure ?Thank you. Mod Edit: Edited for accuracy - “Playbar” instead of “soundbar”
I was happy and content. My system was a pair of play 1s stereo paired in one room and a zp90 running into my hifi in tv room.Then I got a gen 1 beam second hand. Of course I had to bring the play 1s into the tv room to check out the surround, and yes I enjoyed it. Problem is that the layout of the room prevents me from leaving the surrounds behind the couch, which is okay because I don't need surround often, maybe once a week. So in normal circumstances I would leave the play 1s beside the beam on the tv console. In that case it is pointless to have my hifi/zp90 there as it's just extra boxes. So to the point, I probably will get a sub mini in the future, and I am pretty sure that a sub mini and pair of play 1s would satisfy me music wise but believe that the music/full range option in the a poor substitute for a true 2.1 setup. I think that it's terrible to have all this functionality and yet not have the option to have two user presets for your Sonos HT setup. How hard would it
I’d like to buy an ARC with Sub and two one sl as surround speaker . Is it possible , when desired, move the surround speaker to a different room and use them to play music , while still using the soundbar as a tv speaker ? Also in doing this would it be possible to use the two One sl independently in different rooms with different music ? Thx, E
I'm at my wit's end here.Every so often I have to restart my WiFi router. When that happens, both my surrounds (SLs) disconnect from the Sonos group and it takes me literally hours to reconnect them.I had to reset the router today and I've spent the last two hours trying to reconnect the surrounds - as yet I've been unable to do this despite reading every guide available.Why on Earth do they lose connection to the group? That's just basic stuff and, in my view, a fundamental flaw in the Sonos ecosystem.Right now, I want to throw the whole system out the window and buy Samsung's top dog system!Surely it shouldn't be this difficult and stressful? Can anyone give me a simple fix to sort this mess out?
2015 Sony Bravia 4K tv. Has ARC but not eARC. Latest generation Apple TV 4K only does 2 channel audio to my Sonos Arc. Any way to get 5.1 multichannel Dolby 5.1? I know Atmos is not possible without eARC. I read somewhere that I need to pass through HDMI input on my TV, but my Tv does not allow me to do that. Thanks!
