Life with Sonos
Life with Sonos. How do you get the most out of your Sonos system? Got any Sonos tips to share?
Hey Guys,I have an Arc with Sub and surrounds and have recently added a Nintendo switch to the setup. I own a PS5 too but the way Nintendo powers down is different to Sony PS5 in the way that PS5 automatically restores my TV source to the last played screen before turning on the console. Nintendo switch on the other hand, asks to choose the Source. Does anyone know what source Input does Sonos Arc use on a Samsung Series 8 TV ( TU8000) ? I see Sonos and Sonos Multimedia server as two of the options in my TVs source input that refer to the Home theatre.
I recently bought a Ray to set up surround sound with my TV. I grouped the Ray with my Sub and a pair of Sonos One speakers (L&R) and True Tuned it. This works great for TV and movies but when I am trying to listen to music, not so much since it seems the majority of the sound is coming from the Ray. Is there a way to have a speaker grouping that is tuned for surround sound (TV) and one grouping that is tuned specifically for music?
Why isn't stereo pairing via Bluetooth available on either the Move or Roam?I have Bluetooth speakers from 2015 that cost $50 each that have stereo pairing capability. I spent over $850 on a pair of Move's and was shocked to find they didn't have this capability. It's a little mind boggling of an audio tech leader (and premium priced) Sonos product. I'd be interested in purchasing a pair of the new Roam's, but without Bluetooth stereo pairing capability, I'm going to pass. My primary use for these would be the beach, which obviously doesn't have Wi-Fi. Are there any plans to add Bluetooth stereo pairing capability to the Roam or Move? If not, why?
At work we have this sonos device connected to a windows xp.. its completely useless. The sonos app on pc is called Version 7.1, all options are basically greyed out. All we want to do is play our own music. Another problem is that we don't have access to the wifi that the pc is using, its some private airport wifi. So we cant connect our phone... i noticed the sonos box has an ethernet port. Is there perhaps some kind of usb that makes it so i can connect my phone to the sonos box? But i guess it wouldnt work with 4G? We have already tried to reinstall the app, repair the app etc etc, nothing works.. The only thing that works without problems is to use the radio stations.. so i was wondering, how hard would it be to make my own online radio and just search for it on sonos? Please don't tell me im out of options.. we want to play good music for our customers..
My setup is:LG OLED55G16LA Sonos Arc connected through eARC XBOX series X Nintendo SwitchFrom another thread in the formal I followed this suggestions:From https://www.avforums.com/threads/lg-oled-g1-evo-owners-and-discussion-thread.2352393/page-26Change your Sound Out to HDMI ARC Go to All Settings -> Sound -> Additional Settings and turn on eARC. Under All Settings -> Sound -> Additional Settings -> Digital Sound Out select “Pass Through” When I use the Xbox Series X I see in the iPhone app that sound reproduced is Dolby Atmos.When I use the TV apps (Disney+, Apple TV+, prime video, HBO max) and I select a movie with Dolby Atmos tracks, then I don’t see in the iPhone app that it’s reproducing Dolby Atmos I see Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 or Dolby Digital 5.1… so no Dolby Atmos.If I use the TV apps (Disney+, Apple TV+, prime video, HBO max) with the same movies and without the Sonos arc then I see the TV reproducing Dolby Atmos for those movies. How can I get Dolby Atmos fr
Hi guys, Currently have Arc + 2x One SL’s + gen 3 sub. I use the set up for both home theatre and music. I find with music the One SLs do struggle at higher volumes. Looking for opinions on should I change the One SLs to 2x Fives and buy new stands for them in my lounge room. This does also leave the pair of exisiting One SLs (and stands) without much of a purpose. Or should I grab a second gen 3 sub considering they are currently discounted in Aus and it would mean all my exisiting hardware remains. I guess I want to know if the second sub will in someway add to the higher volume where I find the One SLs are lacking. Thank you for any insights or tips
I'm trying to watch Glastonbury on my TV but the Sonos tries to play this stereo output as 5.1 which means 95% comes through the center (Beam) and none through the rear (One SL) speakers. I know yiu can disconnect the surrounds and set it up differntly but this should just be an option in the app to switch. This is easily done for music, so it should be possible for video content too. I k ow you was looking into it with the developers years ago but nothing has changed. Are we any further with this please
Hi. I have a sonos amp connected to my tv and when i play on this amp from sonos f.ex. it suddenly stops and when i go into the app it say its playing from “line in” but the tv is off.This can happen once ever 10 min or once ever 2 hours. I have on auto play, but this should not happen when the tv is off. Anyone else experienced this and know what to do?
I have seen lots of topics all around the same thing - Sonos Move not playing. This seems wrong to me for such an expensive product. Are Sonos looking into this and trying to determine what the bug is because it can’t be a coincidence that so many people have the same issue.
I have a Sonos One in the living room and Sonos One SL in the bedroom.When I am playing songs from my phone (iOS 13.3.1), airplay to either speaker won’t work.The error message I get is > Unable to connect to “Living Room”.However, when I airplay to Apple TV, it works! Any kind soul can help what’s wrong? I try restart my router, speakers and phone. It doesn’t work at all.
I have a 2020 LG CX TV with an Arc, 2 Ones and a sub that has been working fine for a year. Earlier today, the sound stopped coming through the Sonos speakers. I was able to get the sound to work through the speakers but the LG remote no longer controls the volume. I have tried the manual setup controls from other threads but it doesn’t work. Also, if I try to set up the TV in the Sonos app, I get an error that the Arc Mode is not connected but it is.
This is crazy! The shuffle button always worked for years and now its gone (With Apple Music when I select my apple music). But if I go straight to Apple Music, the shuffle button is there. Anyone know how to fix this? I called Sonos and they said they couldn’t help me but would take it under consideration. Without a shuffle button, I would never have bought my two systems. Sonos has to do better than that.
Hi there, I'v searched n searched and can't find this anywhere, so just querying. Im using a full Sonos setup Arc 2xSL and a sub with my Xbox, it sounds great. I noticed the other day the Dolby app states that settings are not available for home theatre in the Dolby app itself. Is this just an override and we just use the EQ settings in the S2 app? Many thanks in advance. 🙃
Hi All. It’s a relief that Sonos has identified the bug that’s causing the bass distortion in Sonos Arc. Thank you @Ryan S for working with the Sonos Communty to identify the problem quickly. Having said this, I believe that Sonos still needs more work to make the Arc sound as it was advertised. Currently, multiple people on Reddit including myself are reporting the highs being too high which sort of feels “harsh”. This improve the speech clarity and brings out details in the movies, but the warmth in speech is lost because the voices sound thin and metallic (for eg. actors I know having heavy voices don’t sound heavy). I was expecting the mid-range to be a lot better considering the Arc has 8 woofers. I have tried TruPlaying twice without success (Turning TruPlay off produces muffled sound). Adjusting the treble also did not help much. Loudness turned on and off does not make a big difference either. May be, this is how the Arc is tuned?! Anyone else feels that Arc is over-empha
As a SONOS Theatre System owner/user, I am very glad and relieved to share that the long waited 14.10 patch had solved my Surround Speakers and Double Subs dropping out issue. I had been tested it for one day by changing between PS5, Netflix and Broadcast TV and the connection stays strong without a single dropout till this point. This is something commendable. Also, quite a no. of users and myself included feel that the surround speakers sound better and more pronounce after deploying the 14.10 patch which is a great bonus to the fix.At the same time, I would also like to inform that I am so glad not to follow SONOS tech support staff’s instructions to meddle with my WiFi network settings because it has nothing to do with my dropout issue. Who knows the repercussion of modifying the network has to my other IoT devices. Importantly, the dropout resolved itself automatically after the 14.10 patch has been installed and the performance has been great so far. My customer feedback to SONOS
Hi, I have. Sonos Arc with Sonos One surrounds connected to a LG OLED C2 TV. I get loss of audio intermittently when fast forwarding through adverts on recorded TV programmes and movies. When I switch off HDMI-CEC or eARC the sound returns.Anybody else having this issue, and have you got a solution?
Hi all , I'm curious about this , I have my beam 2 and TV connected via arc , been working fine , last night whilst watching TV I turned on in TV settings Earc , carried on being ok but this morning when I turned the TV on there was no sound from the beam , turned off Earc and sound came out of the beam , I only have sky+ hd and I know earc is not needed for mine but just curious as of why it might do that , thanks
Sonos app seems to be draining a lot of battery while my iPad is idling. It says 2 min on screen but 23h 19m background. Weird thing is I disabled the background app refresh for Sonos specifically.this has both happened while the iPad was at home at same Wi-Fi as Sonos and away on another Wi-Fi. I have submitted a diagnostic at number 412593457. I need my Sonos app to not kill the battery while idling.
I am building a new home. I am not looking for a high end theater set up. Attached is my floor plan. I plan to use a soundbar, sub-woofer, and 2 ceiling speakers for TV viewing. Note TV is in the corner. I would use two ceiling speakers which are in marked in red with an amp. It is my understanding the ceiling speakers should be behind the seating area. Does that seem accurate? My second option would be to add two more speakers (blue) and play only music through the whole room with 4 speakers. The room measures 26’8” x 20’6”. Can I have the blue speakers off for the TV and all 4 on for music. Can I accomplish this with one amp? Thanks.
Hi, folks. I have a few Sonos devices and have overall been very happy with the system. But I do find one bug/limitation extremely annoying. It seems like if you have “too many” files in a local music library, Sonos just can’t cope with it, and shows “No selections are available” any time you try to use it. You have to delete some files to make your library usable again.I don’t use streaming services. I only play my own music, that I own. It’s pretty ridiculous that I have to delete parts of my library or move them to places where Sonos can’t see them (and so I can’t play them on Sonos!), just because Sonos can’t write proper database code or something. I've seen discussions of this problem before, for years, and always assumed this would get fixed with a regular update because it’s such a ridiculous limitation. But I’m starting to lose patience (and would like to be able to buy more music!)My library isn’t even *that* huge, anyway. I’m sure some folks have more music than me. I seem t
