Life with Sonos
Life with Sonos. How do you get the most out of your Sonos system? Got any Sonos tips to share?
HI, I have a play bar and 2 play 1’s set on my living room TV. I use optical feed from the TV direct to the play bar. we have a problem that intermitently the sound changes from surround to what seem like music ambient play setting, so the vocal audio etc is sent to all three speakers, then at a random time ti will revert back to normal surround. So damn annoying!!! :-)Any ideas would be greatly welcomed!!! pleeeeeeeasecheers ALan
Hello, I’m looking for a way to lock my Apple Music account with a password so no one else on the Sonos account can use it. The issue isn’t people on the account but people on my personal Apple Music. Is there a way to password protect personal music streaming accounts?
Hi allI have two CR200 running inside an up-to-date S1 system, it works perfectly.I saw this topic here: It works. These devices are one of the reason, why Sonos split the devices into S1 and S2 devices.I have them running since 10 years, and I always did an update. I just recently had to reset my configuration, and it was a challenge to get them back into the system.When adding the CR200, I found, that one player must be connected with a LAN cable to the router directly.It does not work, if the LAN connected player is behind a bridge (what I normally have). After it is added, there still must be one player LAN connected, but then it can be behind a bridge. I guess this has to do with a network broadcast message, which does not go through a bridge. If anyone is interested in more details, feel free to answer here.
I see a number of people who ask basically the same question. With the myriad of updates we’ve gotten, the dev team at Sonos can’t figure out how to add a sort option to the playlists? This seems so plebian and basic, it’s difficult to understand why it still hasn’t been done. Leads me to believe they give us this “community” and then pay zero attention to it. Oh, and yesterday I tried to search within my playlist for a song and it went out into Apple Music and wasn’t even remotely what I wanted to do. I wonder if anyone on the Sonos dev team actually uses the app?
Hi, can anybody tell me the vale of resistor R15550, located under the WiFi module?This component is missing on my board ( knocked off and lost by previous “repairer”). Oddly, the player still works, but I would like to replace it.Many thanks for your help, this is my first post!Andy
I saw that this answer/suggestion has been closed but I think it’s time to realize that customers with thousands of dollars invested into a SONOS system would like to see the functionality of a MOVE system paired with the PLAY 5 Subwoofer once and for all. Yes, the MOVE is designed for playability around the house and in outdoor settings but there are those of us that might have need for the MOVE to be used with a PLAY 5 Subwoofer. SONOS, get to work on this!
We have a Canton sound bar at present on the TV,which could be programmed to use the tv remote control, its ok but nothing spectacular. Listend to a Sonos Beam, not really that impressed. I see Sonos have refurbished playbars for sale, remember listening to them a few years back, very impressive. I was thinking of one to replace the canton. Would a Playbar work with the TV remote, the Canton has an option to programe a TV remote to control it. There is a Sonos One & SL in stereo in the lounge controlled by an echo dot, i wont be needing them with the playbar, but can i leave the Echo dot to use with the playbar mainly for playing Amazon Music. I definetley am not interested in setting them up with the playbar, surround sound doesnt interest us. Any advice appreciated
A music video, whether on YouTube or another video medium, sounds better with energy and punch than if I listen to it on Spotify.does sonos apply different equalization for video and another one for music streaming?I enjoy more when I listen to the songs from a video because they are heard with more energy and more punch and it is unfortunate how the music is heard from the bar if I use music that I have on my cell phone or from Spotify, my Sonos Five sounds better the music from Spotify that my Sono arc.Can Sonos improve this on the Sonos arc?
My Sonos app on my Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e gives the error, ‘To group, make sure Kitchen is connected to WiFi and is set up on this system” when I try to add or select one of my other 3 Sonos speakers. I can select any combination of my speakers from my PC or Galaxy S10 phone. If I select one speaker from my PC, that is the speaker that my Tab S5e will get stuck on, with the above message. I’ve tried restarting my tablet and the one Echo Dot in the network.
Hello, I am trying to sign into my SONOS from the iphone + ipad and it won’t let me. Unfortunately, It will only let me sign in through the desktop. When logging in through the phone it tells me my password is incorrect although I am typing the password in correctly. I managed to change the email as well to see if that works but when trying to log in it still gives me the old email. Need help please.
I have the Sonos move and I also compared it to the Bose portable smart speaker. The Bose app allows you to control the audio EQ while using the app and easily switch between wifi or bluetooth and turn off the speaker using the remote. Another frustration with the Sonos app is that I can’t even see what percentage of battery is left when I’m on bluetooth. I know this is a wifi first speaker but since they added bluetooth, they should update the app functionality. Does anyone know how to see the percentage of battery life on a Sonos Move when using bluetooth mode? Are there any 3rd party apps that provide the ability to control the power, switch between wifi and bluetooth, control EQ and show battery usage on while on bluetooth? Thanks
I have a Tivo bolt, and LG TV, and the Sonos arc. In my old setup, I ran the HDMI cord from the bolt to the HDMI port 1 and then use an audio cord to run from the TV to my sound bar. How do you set it up with the arc? If I run the arc to HDMI port 2, it won't play the sound coming out of the tivo port. There doesn't appear to be a place for one of the optical audio cords…Thanks!
Trying to play a single episode of a podcast from the Stitcher service via the app doesn’t work. If I am in the Stitcher Podcasts section of the app and select an episode and “Play now’ i get the error message “Unable to play <podcast episode name> - access is denied.’ However, if i just select the episode itself, it will play, only it also adds every single other episode of the podcast to my queue, so if I have music or other podcasts already in the queue, they are all moved down hundreds of places. It’s extremely annoying and the error is completely uninformative. It is definitely not an access issue, since the same episode will play if all episodes are added to the queue. This happens consistently with any podcast. Very frustrating bug.
