Hi All. Since the Apple Music outage a few days ago I just get the message “Unable to browse music” when trying yo use Apple Music. I have removed and reloaded the account, reauthorised it etc to no avail. I have a family account and I did notice that my partners library was working fine which seemed odd. Its becoming a pain now as not all of my set u is Airpaty compatible so fiddling about to link things isn't very user friendly ! I see this seems to have happened over the years but wondered if anyone had a resolution to this ?
I am by no means a sound engineer, but the mid and low range frequencies are much richer on my passive Bang & Olufsen architectural speakers (which are powered by the Amp) when I stream through my Android TV versus other devices (laptop, tablet, phone, etc.) that aren’t directly connected to the Arc via eArc. I understand how many permutations are involved there. I have tried to control for as many of them as I can. What I am really wondering is if the Arc woofers produce frequencies from the passive speakers in certain configurations with the Amp and not in others that seem almost identical?Thanks for any insights.
Hi All,I see this was a problem a year ago. My system worked fine until yesterday. Today, unable to access apple music and get the ‘Apple Music full outage message’. Sonos system is otherwise working fine. All speakers etc connected to network and all updated to latest version. I have just moved house and set up my existing system in various rooms at new house. The problem seemed to arise after I added in my existing play 3 and tv playbar. Prior to that, other rooms with play 1 speakers, sonos arc etc all had access to apple music.Any help/advice on how to fix this?Many thanks in advance.
I’ve followed these instructions repeatedly:Open Sonos. From the Settings. ... Under Music & Content, tap Add a Service. Click on Add to Sonos, then select I already have an account. Click on Authorize, then enter the credentials of the Admin account.#4 does not fully exist...after I click Add to Sonos it doesn’t have an option to select I Already Have An Account. It brings me to a list of streaming services. I’ve already got my Spotify account connected to my Sonos app and now I’m trying to connect, invite, add (WTF ever you want to all it) my wife and/or my wife’s Spotify. When I click on Settings, + Add a Service, then Spotify, it tells me I’m already connected to Spotify.
I continually have problems with my Sonos and Amazon Prime Music service. I can play music from my Amazon Prime Music account through the ap and it will play one of my playlists for awhile, then all of a sudden the music will stop. I then get a notification that “…there is missing information with Amazon Music…”.There is nothing wrong with my Amazon Prime Music account, it will play fine off of my kitchen’s Alexa through Sonos while the ap will continue to tell me that there is an issue. I can play music off of the Sirrius station through Sonos with no issues. I can play music off of my computer using the Amazon Prime ap no problem. This issue started a few months back. I have deleted and reinstalled the Amazon Music more than once and it does not help.I spoke with one of the Sonos help personnel earlier today and she told me that the Sonos techs “knew of the issue and that they were working on fixing it”. I have not read that anywhere on the forum. She also directed me to Status
Hi,I own a S2 system (3xFive + Port) with more than 12000 tracks in FLAC & MP3 on 4 folders of a Synology Nas. This year I found out at I couldn't alter my library, without unplugging al the Sonos components & performing the Update Library with just one active component. Also my Port lost, during the night, track of al the music I played the day before. The Fives hadn't had that problem.These BUGs seemed to be resolved with an update from Sonos this month. But yesterdat I noticed that one of my folders are empty, so I can play just 5000 or 6000 from the whole collection. I took me half an hour to get all folders back, because by adding one folder I lost 2 others.Today I found out I miss again a folder!Perhaps this problem is also due to the automatic Library Update during the night, which is, for me, not interesting. Because when I added the folder I lost again 2 others.I'll try to add my folders again & uncheck the autoUpdate function. But that's only a WorkAroundWhat coul
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? It’s so funny, there’s multiple obscure channels playing the same death metal, but where’s the Five Finger Death Punch, Avenged Sevenfold, Halestorm, Black Label Society, Rob Zombie …
Hi all, Recently I had some playback issues with FitRadio and had to remove it from my services. When trying to add again, I click on "I already have an account” and it automatically errors out saying unable to authorize account. It won’t even let me enter username and password.I am not sure what I can do to reconnect. I am able to add other services like SiriusXM where it prompts you to enter your username and password. What can I do?
I’ve setup SiriusXM with the Sirius APP, and it works fine on the iPhone App. My Sirius login is working fine. When I attempt to Add Service for Sirius to the Sonos App, it gives me an error that my login credentials for Sirius are not valid. But I KNOW that they are valid because I use the exact same ID and PW on the Sirius website and it works fine. I’ve attempted multiple times with same results. I’ve also “Reset” the Sonos app. Same results. Anyone have a solution?
I have the proper Planet Rock plugin (or whatever it is called!) for Sonos and it seems to work every time on my Roam, but on the lounge speakers, if I don’t play it for a day or so, when I then press play on the Lounge it is never able to play - it comes back with “can’t find Planet Rock station” or something like that.I then have to re-select it from my radio stations on My Sonos and then it plays fine. It does the same thing no matter which app I use - I have it on an iPad Pro and on an Android phone. They both have the same issue.
I did the Sonos update today (05-25-22) and now my Sonos won’t play some Sirius XM stations anymore, it gives message the Station is Unavailable, which is wrong. Seems this has happened before and is a Sonos issue (not Sirius XM). Sigh...please fix this one like ASAP!
Hi All,Normall when I listen to a podcast using my Sonos system when its completed it drops off my list in the windows app. But every so often is doesn’t and this is happening on multiple podcast.In the screen shot below only the top podcast #338 is not completed. So #330 and #325 should have disappeared in the same way #1 - #324 have and #326 - #329If I look at it on the sonos android app it shows Again it doesn’t disappear like it should but it at least shows as complete. Under the pocket cast app is only shows 1 podcast #338 which is correct Do any one know how to:Make the podcast disappear once they are completed? or force the resync so it doesorShow the completed flag in the windows app? Thanks

Hi.Are there Finnish users online? Through which online radio service have you found YLE local radio channels?Has Yle (Finnish Proadcasting Co) local/areal channel been taken away from offering of the online-service providers? You have any idea?SonosRadio has not been broadcasting YLE programs for a long time, but now they have disappeared as well from other internet radio providers I have used.I understand that the problem is related to the fact that YLE is not a commercial operator but a Finnish state-owned production company.Regards
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.
