Going to Library--> Artists--> (artist name) Info & Options: There is an empty frame for artist art that remains empty even when there is a folder.jpg image file in the artist folder next to albums. Music://Artist #1://Album #1 Album #2 Album #3 folder.jpg Can you please add support for this frame to accept the artist art file?
I am really enjoying my sonos system, but having come from a squeezebox, I am missing the feature that would show me my new music in my music library. It basically showed the most recently added 100 albums from the current date. That would be an excellent addition to your already fantastic product....or my question really is can I do that already? I haven't figured out if so. Let me know if I have just missed this one. TIA
Hello, can you add an option to share Spotify playback on Facebook, just like it is when I play music with the Spotify app? Right now none of my home music activity is shown on Facebook since I use Sonos at home but Spotify at work. Would be great to see *all* my activity posted.
Hi, In Spotify there is a possibility to add your local music (songs on your harddrive) to your spotify playlists. I have "extended" almost all my spotify playlists like this. However, while my Sonos system have access to the same local music, these "local songs" are not present when I play these "extended" Spotify playlists through the Sonos system!! I could of course manually make sonos playlists which includes both the spotify songs and the local songs, but this would take forever (several 1000s of songs in total). I have already invested many hours over the years with the spotify lists and I do not want to spend many hours again (for something that should be "the work of a computer" :-) Hopefully this should be possible to fix easliy, or? Let me know! Many thanks! Jim
I was forced by XM to change my log in due to some reason, who knows, but no when I try to connect to XM on sonos, it is telling me it is wrong, which is correct. My issue is that I cannot figure how to update my password from within the sonos app. Is there a way? I am not sure. I set up the Sonos player a year ago and cannot remember the process. If anyone can help, it would be much appreciated.
So there I was listening to some happy hardcore on my Sonos system, but fancied a bit of Pink Floyd... so I went to the right place, clicked on the file and was told i couldn't use the file. Look here at the screenshot: Seems I have to post > 3 posts to show links and images (why?????), so here we go... So why can't I play this flac? Cheers, Andy
I know this is always going to be a personal preference, but does anyone have any advice or pros / cons of different services? I was going to sign up for Spotify Premium just for the Sonos access, but have seen a lot of threads complaining about the lack of functionality in the Sonos implementation of the Spotify app, particularly the lock of Spotify Radio support. What about Rdio, Deezer and others? I am based in Sweden so Last.fm and US only services are currently out of reach :-( I could just sign up for each one for a month and test drive them but I'd love to hear the thoughts and recommendations of the Sonos community!!
I've been downloading Audible.com books to my iPhone for years - use the iPhone to listen to a single book while running, driving to work, etc. Was excited when the Sonos iPhone app was released. Would like to also stream from this same device via my Sonos (streaming music from the iPhone via the Sonos works great), but not working. I'm using the .aa / format 4, but when I try to select the audiobook from the iPhone, I get an "unable to play" message.

can I connect my computer to sonos and play the audio of a movie through my sonos system? For example, I am connecting my computer to a projector. I want the audio to connect and play through my sonos. Can I either send the movie to my sonos library or is it possible to connect the computer (audio line out) by hard line into a sonos component.
How to synchronize podcast status with iOS Podcast app ?/ support for podcast status information when streaming to sonos
I am new to Sonos, I just received and installed my components yesterday. I am controlling it from an iPad and iMac. I am listening a lot of podcast. I am using the function "Music - from this iPad" in the controller to access podcast. I am disappointed the controller is not in sync with the iOS Podcast app from Apple. The played / unplayed status is not sync. And, more important, the play position is not sync either. Any help ? Suggestions ? Thanks Seb
I know airplay speakers maximum streaming capacity is 16 Bit, 44.1 KHz, is it the same with Sonos products? I'm asking because I have some cd's ripped at 24bit 96 Khz that I would like to listen to without it being downsampled... I think the answer will be same as airplay but thanks for any hints..
When playing Pandora on my computer the app has a history of recently played songs available. This history is a great help when I want to mark songs I have recently heard with a thumbs up or down indication or when I want to identify the song that has recently played. When using Sonos to play Pandora, if I want to mark a song I have to race to make sure I have access to the app before the song switches because of the lack of history. Please add a history of recently played songs when using Pandora.
