So far I like my Sonos speakers but find it odd that for something so expensive, it doesn’t support what I consider basic functionality. Since Sonos supports TuneIn, it seems to me it should be able to let me login to my TuneIn account so I can play the music I have subscribed to. I don’t want to subscribe to the Sonos radio stream. My workaround is to stream TuneIn to my Google Cast with TV which is connected to my Arc.Looking through the community archives, it seems there’s a lot of people that want this but Sonos isn’t interested.
I can’t find the “Quiet Classical” station listed in Sonos radios menus on the Android app. However I can find it by using the app’s Search.I can add the station to “My Sonos” from Search but its icon is shown as washed out.Is all this a bug? How can it be fixed so the station is fully listed and has a proper graphicicon?
Hello, I have a weird issue where I can be listening to a radio station and when someone else on the network opens the S2 app - playback stops for a few seconds before coming back on again. Does anyone have any ideas as to what would cause this? It seems to only happen with radio (Sonos Radio/TuneIn) The network consists of several Connect:Amps and a Playbar all hardwired (individually) direct to a gigabit network switch which has a single uplink to the main router. There’s also a Sub which connects wirelessly. I’ve isolated the network to only have Sonos on it and the issue still appears. Broadband speed is good. Any help appreciated!
This is offered to try and help anyone else who has just upgraded their Synology hardware with DSM 7 and transferred users and media folders to the new device via configuration export/import and/or backups. It may also apply to anyone upgrading DSM 6 to 7.In my case, I was upgrading hardware and DSM version. Having done the DSM configuration and data imports from the old device, I was unable to add the replacement Music Library on the new NAS to S2 Sonos, Error 900 was reported. On the Synology, a log entry showed an SMB1 logon was refused. This was a complete red herring, as I later discovered.Windows clients also would not connect to the shared folders.After a lot of playing around with SMB settings, it transpired from the raw smb connection log on the NAS that the issue was that the connections were refused due to the user not having application permissions.So if you come across this problem, please check in DSM Control Panel “User & Group” that SMB is allowed in application p
From looking a various blogs, I don’t appear to be the only person experiencing this problem, but it doesn’t appear to be easily searchable in the support forums and those I have found have been closed.I’m operating an S1 system linked to a Napster account. I have a number of Sonos Playlists setup using a combination of my ‘owned’ songs linked from my external hard drive music library and tracks from Napster. I am periodically seeing some of the songs ‘linked’ via Napster not payable from the play list. It appears the Napster server link breaks and the track/song can’t be played.To resolve the issue requires having to re-search for the track/song on Napster and re-adding to the Sonos Playlist, deleting the original ‘broken’ link from the playlist. Very annoying! Particularly given that the song can still be found on Napster.Is this because Napster move the track/song between servers, hence breaking the link where Sonos would find the track?
Pandora stopped working for me.. I can browse my stations but click ‘Play’ and nothing…I restarted all Sonos devices.. shut down all Sonos apps.. deleted the Pandora services.. Added it back and get weird messages.. “Pandora is conducting system maintenance. Please try again later”.. Waited a day.. same results. Oddly after I get the above message it says in my Sonos app the service was added but still nothing plays. HELP !
Hi all, I have a sonos beam which has been working perfectly for over a year. Over the last few weeks I have had multiple problems including not being able to connect to the S2 app, spotify connect and Alexa not playing music when asked (even though the request is acknowledged). I can occasionally get music to play through airplay although this is patchy at best.I have tried resetting on multiple occasions and am able to set up a new system but the same problems persist.I have a feeling it has something to do with the S2 app but am now unable to set up the beam on the legacy app.My beam is essentially a nice looking brick at the moment so any help would be very much appreciated!
All radio program titles have stopped updating. The music currently playing updates correctly but the program doesn't. So when I start Sonos in the morning I see last night's show title but today's tune! This happens on all providers, TuneIn, Radio player etc. It started some time ago on Sonos v1. I updated to v2 but it's the same. If I re select the same station it gets the correct program but never changes.Any ideas appreciated!
Hi,I recently got a Sonos One SL that i love very much.I discovered the Radio option and i used it for days. I was really happy with it because I had small “commercials” and small history facts about the bands in English. But since today, I get longer commercials in Dutch (I am living in Belgium and it is an official language) as well. I get that it is a free service and commercials is the way they fund it but is there a reason that it suddenly changed? And is it possible to get it back as it was before?Thank you in advance,Alex
HiWhen saving a song from Apple Music within Sonos there are a couple of options. Save to playlist is good and I can see the music in the playlist selected. Another option is save to my Sonos. I can’t seem to find the music after selecting this option. Where is the music saved to? I don’t necessarily want to add to a playlist all the time.cheersrob
Hi. Since this morning all my favorite stations suddenly play the same thing. Best guess a rock radio with a British woman speaking a lot. Searching the same stations or other stations in the searchbar and playing them gives the same thing. Yesterday night everything was still working fine. Nothing in my set up or wifi connection has changed during the night. Is anybody having the same problem or has someone experienced this in the past?
I have my Apple Music account linked to Sonos. When I browse “My Music” in the Sonos app, I can see all the albums that I have downloaded on my phone, but some (or in some cases all) of the songs are grey’d out. When I look at the same album on the Apple Music app, the songs are all available / not grey’d out. Any ideas / advice, please?
Good morning everyone,I have a family subscription to Spotify. Using our iMac I can connect to my Sonos network using my Spotify account but I cannot connect my wife’s account to the Sonos. She can’t connect via her iPhone 11 either. All our software is the very latest version.Can someone help please?Cheers… Chris
I purchases a classical concerto album from itunes that has 7 tracks - the first concerto has 4 tracks, and the second concerto has 3. When I update my music library on Sonos, I get 4 tracks: movements 1, 2 & 4 of the first concerto, and movement 3 from the second. From reading the support topics, it looks like either the whole album gets imported, or none of it does. How can I get all seven tracks into Sonos?
