Hi I have Win 10 and have installed the S2 app. I have configured my Firewall as per the guide, my music folder is shared. When I try to add the music folder to the library I get this error: I have searched the forum but unable to find the answer. I have even turned off the firewall completely but still get the error, can anyone advise please? Thanks in advance, Rik.
I just added Pocketcasts as a music service within Sonos. I subscribe to a couple of podcasts and they show up when I navigate to Pocketcasts via the music service menu. But those podcasts don’t appear when I use the Sonos search functionality. Sonos searches for podcasts within my other music services (Amazon, Stitcher etc) but doesn’t show any results for Pocketcasts. I’ve tried removing and re-adding Pocketcasts. Is this a known issue?
Apple music issueDespite restarting the sonos system, reloading apps on all devices, apple music will not go to the log in screen but remains a white out, its alhad a glitch before and I've successfully reloaded it. This time a week has passed and no further on. Help!I've also removed devices from apple music and re linked.
I have a number of local playlists stored using Itunes on a local drive. They appear correctly on my iPhone se (1) but not on my iPad. If I launch one on my phone it appears as playing on the iPad and I can chop and change the music. But does not appear as a played item when next I use the iPad. Driving me mad. This is a relatively recent phenomenon.
Normal Apple Music account, seems to have stopped letting me play different music in different rooms
Hi folks Apologies if this been answered already or if it’s a daft question. I have noticed this happening in the last year or so. When I try to play different music in 2 different rooms, one room will stop playing after 1 song while the other room will continue. I pay for just the bog standard Apple Music (9.99 a month). Have Apple stopped Sonos from being able to play separate albums in separate rooms? It certainly worked fine when I first purchased the system.Any help appreciated and apologies for wasting anyone’s time, first post here! Thanks
The Spotify account is my account. My wife uses it through her Sonos app on her phone. I use Spotify throughout the day while I’m at the office and/or car. My wife will be at home using Spotify through the Sonos app. I’ll be at the office using Spotify through the Spotify app, and we cut each other off. We can’t both be using it, even though we’re in 2 different locations. Any thoughts or does she have to have her own Spotify account?
I am having issues establishing Apple Music / I-tunes from an I-phone on the Sonos Move. During set-up, when trying to add Apple Music the menu asks if I’m already a member. After clicking this button, instead of showing the “Apple ID” password login, a screen asks if I want a free trial. After clicking “not now”, the screen disappears. Any suggestions. Thanks.
Hello, Is it possible to add a music service before connecting to a Sonos product?I am trying to test the connection to Apple Music before connecting to a product owned by a venue that will be playing my music over a Sonos product. Which means that I am unable to connect to the product now. Right now, ‘Add Services & Voice’ is greyed out in the iOS Sonos app. Thanks!
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?
I’ve viewed many threads on this topic, we are using Sonos in our new brewery, we do a reset of our entire network twice a week, it is a must due to the amount of wireless traffic we supply/use for both us and our customers. Our speakers are 20 feet in the air and plugged in the ceiling (old commercial building), so plugging/un-plugging is not an option. Any other suggestions, we need help quickly as we open tomorrow. Thanks, Don
There seems to be problem with localisation in the PC controller app. When I view the list of shows in a specific list of shows I’ve subscribed to, the date format is not DD/MM/YYYY (UK where I live). The dates of the shows are listed in MM/DD/YYYY (US) format.Could this get checked out and if I’m not being dumb, get fixed?Cheers
I don’t see any Sonos-made Station on Sonos app. Pick any station shown on Sonos Radio website and search for its name on Sonos app, I see only third-party radio stations but no Sonos-made stations.For example, the Smooth Jazz station on Sonos Radio. I can play on my browser just fine, but when I search for “smooth jazz” in my Sonos app I see only third-party stations.I know that Sonos has created many high quality stations but I am not able to browse any of them in the app, let alone searching for it. In the “Browse Radio” page in the app, I see only third-party stations, no way to browse only Sonos-made stations. Please recommend what I should do.I use Google Pixel 6. Sonos app is on its latest version. My Sonos system is a pair of Sonos One SL.Thanks.
Do you have any help on why all of my songs have transferred over to my new PC on the SONOS app but the playlists have not transferred? In iTunes I had exported the iTunes playlists and then successfully imported them onto my new PC (the playlists show up in iTunes), but Sonos is not syncing the playlists. I did the import prior to installing and updating the SONOS app and I have updated my music library.Thanks again for any help.
When I ask Alexa to play a radio station or an artist it recognises the request and replies, eg ‘playing xx from Global Player’ or ‘shuffling songs by...’ but then silence. I can play these fine through the speaker using the app. If I ask a straight forward question eg what’s the weather forecast Alexa replies correctly. Does anyone know what the issue is with the music and radios?
Despite several old threads dealing with the lack of bookmarks, there's no coherent explanation why this is not possible or implemented. Who would be responsible for this feature - Sonos, Audible or both?And, does Audiobooks offer a bookmark feature?There's an ancient Linux program on github which claims to be able to provide sonos bookmarking, but I doubt it actually works by reading the issues reported.
