Life with Sonos
Life with Sonos. How do you get the most out of your Sonos system? Got any Sonos tips to share?
HiI have yet to find an elegant way of getting podcasts onto my sonos system.My latest attempt is to stream from my android device but Sonos seems to require that the podcasts are stored in a specific folder. But no podcast apps on android seem to use that folder to store the actual podcast file. So again I am struggling to find a way of getting this to work.I tried linking my sonos account to my pocketcasts account but that never seems to refresh the subscribed podcast list.Why is it seemingly so difficult to get podcasts on sonos?
After listening to the new SONOS Radio HD for a while, I really enjoy and appreciate the High Quality fidelity! I really does sound like the best HQ compared to other music services. I am on the 1 month trial but I’ll pretty sure I’m going to become a subscriber. I do wish they’d offer a RENEW YEARLY subscription.Since I listen to a lot of Classical music , my recommendation would be that another Classical station would be curated that would present COMPLETE ENTIRE SYMPHONIES/ CONCERTOS, ETC. Right now there are only classical stations that present only single movements but not the COMPLETE piece.please consider this type of station. Thank you for the HQ and functionality of SONOS RADIO HQ! Ron
Good afternoon, I was using SONOS fine yesterdays and then today I am getting the message that sonos is unable to locate the server. I have contacted Apple (IMAC) and then have gone through all troubleshooting. This is a frequent problem and I am getting fed up with the inconsistency of use.
I find the slider(s) very cumbersome to use. A landscape mode would probably help.It’s really difficult to turn volume up/down just a little with the slider.Maybe add an alternate method, something like a number with up/down controls, so could change volume in small increments. Either an addition to current UI or maybe an option to use slider or other mechanism. It would also be helpful to see the current volume level, so I can set it accordingly depending on what I’m listening to.
I’m paying the money for the Sonos Radio HD and I’m very happy with many of the channels. I’m surprised that there is a gap in the Metal/Hard Rock category. There are several metal stations based on year groups, but where is the Hard Rock? New Lords of Metal plays a lot of great new metal but no hard rock? So, where is the new hard rock? It’s not even in the Rock category either? I hope the curating will improve as more subscribers join. For example, the Blues Masters is great, but the music is on a loop playing the same selection of songs over and over. Thanks!
Hi everyone. Everything worked great. I moved and had SONOS Gen 2 etc in storage. At new place - 6 months later - I had ‘reset’ and move to S2 - rebuilding SONOS and services etc. That was no joy. I’m up and running except I can’t add my Apple Music service (in my name). It says must use Android or Apple phone. However, SONOs no longer likes my cell for some features and says upgrade the o/s (there isn’t one) when I try to add the service. I don’t have an Apple phone. When I added S2 to her’s it will only accept Apple Music in her name (she doesn’t have an account). So, I’m stuck. Either upgrade my phone/switch to Apple OR use a workaround to get the apple service added. (p.s.: not inclined to play music on the cell and pipe it in through aux.)So, doesn’t anyone have a work around to re-add Apple Music as a service? On the windows PC it of course says use your phone. Thank you. DS
I have an Arc with surrounds (play:1) in my Living Room, and a One in my open plan kitchen, grouped so I can I play TV sound in the kitchen when cooking etc. and want to mute the kitchen speaker at other times. I have a Harmony Elite remote, and my tv activities include the Living Room (arc+surrounds) and Kitchen speakers. I assign a button on the remote to ‘Mute’ the Kitchen speaker. But it Mutes the arc instead?I have deleted and recreated the activity several times. Then I realised that even in the Sonos app, the muting is not working as it should. It seems it only works If I use a Play:1 in the kitchen, but I’d like Alexa here. Any ideas?
Hi I have an issue I no longer have the option of switching back to the TV speakers SONY KD65AF9, when I activate the TV speakers, the sound works for 2 seconds then systematically switches back to the Arc.I want to activate the Arc only when I watch a movie for example but not permanentlyThe answer from SONOS is to remove the cable and put it back when I want to use ARC but it’s not really a solution. Rgds
We have had the Arc since it was launched, and I have not had any issues with it since we set it up. Recently, the audio will stop while the video will continue playing. It is not cutting in and out, just simply stops. It is very random, and it doing so with different apps. Last night, it was in the middle of Shang-Chi in the Disey+ app. It has also happened in Netflix and Hulu. I believe this is since the latest update, which is in a similar timeframe as the latest LG firmware update. The fix has been to exit the app and restart the movie or show.Anyone else seeing the same issue?
I have used Sonos with Spotify to play podcasts for the last few months. After the first of the year, I have not been able to do so.At first, I thought it was another Sonos glitch (I do not use the alarm function because it regularly forgets certain rooms or speakers and has to be manually reset…which is not feasible when I am asleep). But nothing seems to be working. I see on the forum that this was a problem a year or so ago, but I have been able to play podcasts just last month. Can anyone provide any guidance? This is extremely annoying as I purchased a pair of Roams specifically to be able to play podcasts in the morning.
I have a Setup Living Room - One SL 2 pcs Bedroom - Arc + Sub Kitchen - Sonos Five Outdoor - In celling Speaker Sonance + Amp I want to ask that can we play multiple songs (Different tracks) from Sonos App is it possible , if yes then how can we do that , please explain a little bit.

Hey everyone, I have an Amp that I use for my computer audio via line-in. This works well, but sometimes the Amp forgets it’s playing when the audio is quiet for a while on YouTube, for example. Is there a setting that can keep the line-in audio alive?
I've recently purchased a new Pioneer TX55JZ1000B tv and whilst I can connect through the app my phone for the volume it will not sync to allow me to adjust the volume on the remote as all my other TV's in the house so?I currently connect via a optical cable as that is the only option on my soundbar....any help would be appreciated.
I’d like to request the ability in the app to turn off the surrounds completely when listening to music. Currently the lowest you go can is Ambient/zero, which still allows some sound to be audible from the surrounds. I’m sure there are users out there who would enjoy the reverse as well, where you can keep the surrounds on for music, but mute completely for TV/Movies. My setup includes an Amp, 2nd gen sub, and Ikea Symfonisks for the rears.
I have three sources into the Arc (Apple TV, Cable box, TiVo antenna box) and output is to an OLED LG TV and am using a Logitech Elite remote with hub. Most of the time all is well. Sometimes when I switch sources, the source cycles on and off (video and sound) about once every second. If I turn everything off, it fixes it and all is well again. It happens most often when switching to the Tivo box but not always. Diagnostic= 1356345119
I see quite a few sporadic messages for intermittent connectivity issue between the Sonos Arc & many Samsung TVs. My symptoms seems to be very similar to others where audio completely cuts out and a lot of restarts later, the audio (eARc) is restored. I’ve tried new cables, different AnyConnect settings, varying audio formats and the issue persists. does anyone have a long term fix for these issues? thanks in advance!
