Hi just bought a Sonos Move and have found constant interference when streaming YouTube from TV paired with Playbar. On its own with YouTube, and other music streaming it’s fine, wifi and router are working perfectly. Can anyone help.

Hi @TonyFalcon 

Welcome to the Sonos Community!

Although it can often work without issue, group play of TV audio has some issues and is therefore officially unsupported. When playing any other content, the content can be pre-buffered prior to playback to reduce skipping. When TV audio is played, there is no pre-buffering at the source as the Playbar has to play immediately to keep in sync with the TV picture. You are most likely experiencing issues because the audio needs to route itself to the Move via the router.

You will most likely be able to play TV audio on the Move without issue, but it will always be delayed slightly. To maximise performance, I recommend you check for and remove sources of interference near the Playbar, the Move and your router.

A reboot of the router may also help - remove power for at least 30 seconds.

I hope this helps.

Thanks Corry P. I’ll give a router reboot a shot.
