Hi,

 

I have Apple TV with AirPlay but cannot get it to connect to Sonos Roam via bluetooth - constantly says PIN is incorrect; style of PIN on bottom of speaker is NNN-NN-NNN. Any ideas why this won’t work?

Also about to get Chromecast with Google TV (latest version); can this use Sonos Roam or One speakers as audio output?

Thank’s in advance :-)

It’s not the speaker PIN, it’s the Airplay PIN. I think you need to switch it off. See here for how to resolve that:

Ah sorry @gdub I missed your other question. I believe the Chromecast TV supports a Bluetooth speaker connection, albeit some issues have been reported, as seen in this LINK.

All being well though, you can likely connect its BT transmitter to the Roam and ‘group’ that with your other Sonos devices on the same WiFi network subnet. Don’t quote me though as I’ve never used that particular Google device.

edit: An Amazon FireTV Stick definitely works using a Bluetooth link (as described above) as I’ve tested that myself. 👍
