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’ve spent months trying to figure this out. Through trial and error, I confirmed that when pairing a Sonos sub with a Sonos One, or One SL, I can only stream Amazon music in HD, and not Ultra HD. A post from Dec 2021 confirms this as another user had the same issue with Play 5s. Pairing the Sub with my Arc is fine, and streams Ultra HD. Again from the other post, this is true for the Sonos Beam. I will be reaching out to Support. Looking forward to a fix. I bought a 2nd sub to pair with my speakers for the enhanced music experience. It would be great to stream to this setup in Ultra HD.
I have an older Mac Mini, A1347, from late 2014, hooked up to my home theater system for some games on it. Apparently this model doesn’t send audio out through the HDMI cable. My system in that room uses a Playbar, two Sonos 1 players, and the woofer (forgot what it’s called). When I try to use AirPlay so I can play the audio from this Mac through my theater sound system in the same room, that system (based on the Playbar) is not on the list of Sonos devices I can use for playback. All the other Sonos devices in that building and in the house (all on the same LAN) show up, but not the theater setup.Is this a solveable problem or is there some reason the Playbar and combined system of 4 speakers can’t handle AirPlay when all the smaller devices can?
Help please: I have the Arc, a Sub and 2x Fives for my surrounds in my 'Living Room' zone (Arc+Sub+LS+RS) connected to my television.Can I switch the 2 Fives for use in stereo with my turntable (yes, I have a preamp) so I can listen to vinyl as well (not at the same time)?Thanks in advance.
I use my Sonos Amp in my home office from my Mac via AirPlay. This morning, I tried to play some music, and it’s not connecting. It shows up in the AirPlay menu in the Music app, but can’t connect. I can stream via AirPlay from my iPhone with no problem. I recently installed a new mesh wifi system, but that’s the only thing that’s changed in my setup. Any idea what could be going wrong or how to diagnose this?
A podcast I have listened to on Stitcher via Sonos for some time has just moved to be on Spotify only. Now searching via Sonos app for this does not find the podcast. When I search in Spotify app, it is there and I can play on my iPhone but when I try to switch playback to Sonos device, get error message for all Sonos devices “can’t play this right now”. This seems to affect only podcasts rather than playlist or artist searches. Am I correct in assuming that Spotify podcasts can be played via Sonos ? This seems odd if true. Any ideas welcome. Thanks
I use Apple Music through my Sonos and used it successfully in the past. What has started happening recently is that I select apple music, then get asked to re-authorise the account, which I do and get a message stating setup is complete, when I click on done, the Sonos message states it is unable to browse music, so I click back to the main menu to select Apple music again and repeat the same process with the same result. My phone that I have the app installed on is a Samsung S20 with the Version 14.12 of the Sonos app installed. I have deleted apple music several times from Sonos and re-installed as suggested by Sonos online support team and I use apple music fine on my phone with my Samsung buds but I can’t seem to get Sonos to recognise the apple music account any longer. Has anyone else had this issue recently and does anyone have a solution?
Spotify play list skip over Sonos but if streamed over phone or laptop the same playlist does not skip
This only happens with Spotify. Apple Music or Pandora have no issues. When I stream the same playlist over phone or computer via Spotify there are no issues. On the Sonos system at work when I stream Spotify playlist they also skip at work just like with my home Sonos system. There is something with your Sonos/Spotify integration that is triggering this skipping condition or more susceptible to triggering a skip with Spotify
Apologies for asking a question on which there are other posts, however I am still hitting a brick wall:Synology DS418 NAS running DSM 7.1 42661 Update 3; music in a folder name “music”; under File Services - SMBv1 set as minimum with SMBv3 as maximum; NTLMv1 enabledUsing Sonos S1 (as older hardware on my system)Enabling NTLMv1 has got me passed the login/password not accepted hurdle.Now I am stuck with the ‘Unable to add folder to music library (900)’. I think this tells me that at least Sonos has been able to address the NAS shared folder. I have tried setting up the music library using iPad App; Mac App and Android App. I have also tried using the IP address to no avail. Internal Firewall is off. I have also tried various Diskstation login accounts.Lastly I have tried alternative upper case and lower case spellings of DiskStation, Diskstation, Music, music. Didnt make any differenceAny help much 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
Let me start by saying I’m old and not especially tech savvy, although I am able to get things done. I purchased a new iMac and migrated all data. A few Playlists and some corresponding songs are missing in my Sonos library. The Music Media folder location on Mac is: /Macintosh HD/Users/name/Music/Music/Media. On Sonos it’s: //IMAC/Music. I tried to use the Mac location in ADD SHARED MUSIC FOLDER, but couldn’t go on to NEXT - greyed out - only CANCEL as an option. I’m afraid (read: old) to delete the //IMAC/Music location for fear I will still not be able to ADD new location. Interestingly, I am able to use Sonos , even without matching folder locations. Any help and info would be great! Just try not to use computer jargony terms. Thanks so much!Sue
Have had this problem on and off for years now. It’s gotten REALLY bad lately. Have contacted support directly and they weren’t much help. I cannot connect to SiriusXM for days now. I also can randomly connect (yes, I said connect as it mostly won’t connect) to play YouTube Music as well. I’ve shut everything down (multiple times). Everything is upgraded. Only way I can get YT Music to play is by trying to start with a different speaker to add to a group. Most won’t play at all and I find one which will (sometimes). I am convinced it has to do with your horrible WiFi implementation. Why? Because all of my speakers except for one is connected via wire. I had WiFi disconnected but it obviously tries to do something and eventually fails. When I called support they made me re-enable WiFi (even though I’m not using it). No, it didn’t help.
Hi everyone,Since many of my albums are poorly categorized by Genre, I went in and manually changed them in Windows Music Player. But when I update the music library for Sonos, anything previously uploaded keeps the original genre name, regardless of what it shows in the player. It does this even if I re-import the entire library. Any idea why this happens and what I could try?
Lorsqu’on écoute radio classique, nous sommes sur le canal de radio classique québec.On a tenté pour voir d’écouter radio classique québec et cette radio envoie bien sur radio classique quebec.Bref, qu’on choississe radio classique ou radio classique quebec, on écoute la même radio qui est radio classique quebec.Pourriez-vous résoudre ce point?
