Hi everyone,I am attempting to connect my Sonos Arc Surround sound to a Denon AVR-S960H with my video source being a Sony projector VPLVW715ES. My video source is a chrome cast and that is working fine through the receiver. I have turned Arc on but Sonos is not finding it once connected and I try to set it up in the App. Do I need the Sonos Port to make this work? Is there a setting I am missing?Thank you for your help!

been trying to setup my first sonos device (Beam Gen 2) on the S2 app on my Android 11 phone.S2 detects Beam but then claims it cant detect the Beam via NFC. checked on my phone settings that NFC is enabled and the app has full permissions.switched to ethernet, no luck. its definitelt not the cable or the port because my LG TV connects perfectly fine. need help before i throw the towel and return the device for something else.
All my Sonos devices but a Play1 are in storage since we are moving.I initially connected the Play1 wireless at the airbnb we were at to the wireless network just fine, but it was intermittent due to a weak signal so tried to connect to the other available network but could not.I got a wireless extender for a stronger signal, but I am still unable to move it to another primary wireless network or to an extended wireless network, or even to the original wireless network.I can run fine only if I plug the Play1 into the enet port on the wireless extender.If I use Sonos2 to ‘Manage Networks/Update Networks’ and say YES when asked to add a trusted network, then hit ‘Find System’ I am prompted again to make sure all products are powered on and to ‘Find System’ again, but nothing is ever found.Is there any other way to change the old wireless network to a new wireless network? Even if I set the S2 app to the old wireless network it no longer works. Since I only have the one Play1 at present,
Hello thereI would like to purchase a Sonos Arc but I wanted to check that it will work well with beamed ceilings. I have a small living room with a 7 foot ceiling that has beams. In terms of set up they would be running from fireplace to back wall. The Arc would be above the fireplace. Any advice would be much appreciated.
I recently purchased my first Sonos product, the Arc. My network is Meraki MX64 based with a PoE MS120-8lp switch and a MR36 AP. The set up instructions seemed simple enough but I could not get my iPad and Arc to connect to complete the install. With help from Sonos support and Meraki support, they connected right away.Here is the combined list of the instructions from Sonos and Meraki that brought it all together:Log in to the Meraki router. Open the Wireless tab. Select Firewall & traffic shaping. Under Layer 2 LAN Isolation, change the setting to Disabled Under Layer 3 Firewall Rules, change the setting for Local LAN to Allow. Under the SSID Configuration, change the setting Addressing and Traffic Client IP Assignment to Bridge modeI hope this helps anyone with a Meraki network who wants to get the Sonos working smoothly.

I currently have updated to the latest Sonos App and run the update for the Sonos Roam.I am following the factory steps to add to the system and currently have a Sonos Roam in the system but for whatever reason I am able to add the Sonos Roam. It tells me to power down the roam and restart. Upon restart the Sonos Roam shows as offline in the app even after several restarts. I tried factory reset and to re-add a couple times and still no progress.
The Beam is connected to my HD Samsung smart TV and Sky box etc and of course with no jack the Sonos will not connect directly to headphones. Is there an adapter/conversion unit that will enable me to fit in and then make use of the headphones, please? I am not at all technical and in my 80’s so any thoughts will be much appreciated. I thought that I had seen a suitable converter?
Hi, I have a play:5 in the kitchen, a IKEA Symphonic in the hallway and one in the bedroom.In the living room I have a surround system with a Arc and 2 One SL.When I play music, it seems like I cannot use the surround system speaker (arc + 2 One)..Is that by default, just as they show up in a group as TV?Really sad if I cannot use the One speakers when playing music..
Hi there, I recently purchased a Sonos One for my girlfriend as she had a rubbish TV (without Bluetooth) and terrible sound. however, it is not working well as a solution as I have to connect the sonos to the Apple TV via BT, and it is not a permanent connection, meaning that I have to select it as the audio source on the Apple TV everytime and controlling the volume with the ATV remote only works once the airplay connection is established. how can I get a permanent/seemless experience without having to buy her a BT tv?
Hello everyone, so I have a question, we have Sonos amps setup around our house, and we recently got an Orbi mesh system to put throughout our house, and I’m wondering if there’s anyway I can setup the amps to work on the new network while still being able to do it via Ethernet instead of Wi-Fi, it’s currently setup to work via Ethernet but it only works when I’m connected to my main Wi-Fi, I was wondering if there way anyway i would be able to forward them or something, the Sonos amps are plugged into a switch and the switch is plugged into the main router
I have a Play 5: Gen 1 and two Play 1’s. Just bought two Roams which are set up on the S2 app. S2 app doesn’t find any other speakers on system. S1 app finds the Play 5 fine but says the Play 1s are incompatible. When I attempt to “fix” the incompatibility the app says to download S1???The three speakers were working fine on the S1 app before I downloaded S2.
I’m a bit frustrated once again with Sonos. The setting up process for nearly every device is completely annoying. Well, the Sonos “ROAM” is the worst one yet. I bought this product for nearly $200 on the road hoping to have great sound while in my hotel room… which will be another two weeks. Got back to the hotel and come to find I CAN’T use this Bluetooth out the box. Sonos wants you to hook it up to your “private” network AT HOME. I’m not at home. I SHOULD be able to use this out of the box with blue tooth connection. It a total scam to advertise the way you do. The box should say - “can be bluetooth once connected to your home network”. I then would have saved my money.This type of run around is SO unnecessary. I’m once again SUPER frustrated at the companies policy to use what I should clearly own. The reality is, I don’t own this product until I connect back home 2,000 miles away. Any help here?
I only get Stereo PCM with a Hisense 65u8gI currently have 2 symphsonik and a Beam gen 2.My roku ultra gets dolby atmos on a different input so I do think there’s something fishy with the PS5 not detecting the EDID setup? What I am expecting is Multichannel PCM via eARC.Any hints guys on how to get multichannel PCM going via eARC?
I’ve been locked out of my Sonos device since trying unsuccessfully to update settings (change the room name associated with my speaker). The app advised an update required, I tried (again) unsuccessfully to install it. After some hours with Sonos Support and speaking with BT, my ISP I now await a swap out replacement.Question I was unable to get a satisfactory answer to was this. Does the Sonos device need port forwarding settings in place in the firewall menu? In the BT hub settings, it describes port forwarding as necessary for gaming controllers to access the internet. I am able to connect the Sonos locally with my iPad, the Sonos shows up in the BT Smart Hub 7 screen, but it seems unable to connect to the internet and therefore my account.Please assume I’ve tried each and every fix for this issue. Thanks for any assistance.
Apologies if this has been answered before, but many of the threads I’ve found are questions regarding third-party amps or speakers. I recently purchased an Arc. I’d like to connect my turntable (Audio-Technica AT-LP60X, with built in pre-amp) via the Port. Will this “work” with a Sonos Sub in the same room?Just trying to listen to some LP’s. Thanks in advance for any help.
Hi all. This problems had plagued my enjoyment of my Sonos Move . Several helpful call to Sonos support and many BT Firmware upgrades made no difference to the temperamental connection to the Smart Hub - until today!I simply disabled the ‘smart search’ function on the 2.4 GHz page of the Hub and set it to the suggested channel (1). Now connecting and staying connect to the Sonos MOVE. I even have the Hub using mode 1. Does this work for others?
I’ve got a new Synology NAS and trying to connect Sonos to the music folder on it. I’ve enabled SMBv1 and tried everything else that I’ve read in the Sonos community and Synology knowledge base. (I used a WD NAS for years with Sonos, BTW)I’m using a Mac and the path to the music folder is://NASsynology/Volume 1/for sonos(I’ve tried creating a separate folder just called “sonos” thinking maybe it doesn’t like the space in the name; also tried removing the “Volume 1” from the path and/or taking the space out and just calling it “volume1” which is how the name appears sometimes in Synology; also tried the IP address in place of the “NASsynology”...all with no luck) I’m getting an access denied error (telling me to check the ID/password) when using the Synology user-ID/password, as well as when I just skip the ID/password step and just leave it blank. Thanks for any help!
Hello Team: I know I should look for this anser - but I cannot find it. Here is whjat I have and what I am trying to do. Samsung Q LED TV w/ ONE HDMI ARC portDenon AV receiverSonos AMPUse case: I want to have the TV audio currently set up via my AV receiver (NOT touching SONOS at all) as an audio source for Sonos. I see that there is an HDMI port on the back of the AMP. However, there is only ONE HDMI ARC port on the TV which is currently connected to my AV receiver. Am i able to get a splitter such that the TV audio goes properly to my AV system (NON SONOS) and ALSO as a source from AMP. I want to listen to tv audio on my deck which speakers are powered by the AMP. Comments and suggestions please (aside from RTFM!) Thanks
