Sonos Beam and One SLs cannot setup surrounds with one speaker always not being found after setup is attempted
I have a Sonos Beam (Gen 1) and two Sonos One SLs.I recently hooked up a new WiFi router and have a new network name so I began the task of migrating my Sonos system to the new WiFi. Which I’ve always found to be easier to just factory reset everything and start from scratch because the migration tools are tedious and flat out fail most of the time.Now I cannot get my Beam and One’s to pair for surround. All three devices show up in my System.I set them all to “Living Room” and for starters they all get their own living room. So I have Living Room, Living Room 2, and Living Room 3.Which is weird but whatever. The system prompts me to setup surrounds. When I do so this operation always fails. The failure error is generic and says something along the lines of setup failed make sure all devices are powered on and try again.What I’ve tried so far is…Factory reset all speakers, forget my current system, add my Beam, add my One’s, attempt to setup surrounds. This left me with a Living Room w
Hello,I have a network setup, where I have a Zyxel modem connected to the ISP, with 2 WiFi APs connected in LAN ports, and an ethernet switch connected to a LAN port directly in the modem as well. The ethernet switch connects the rest of the wired devices in the house. When I wire my Sonos Beam, it creates the SonosNet mesh and the rest of the speakers connects to this, everything looks fine. After the Sonos has been connected and everything is set up, random disconnects starts happening on my network. Every device connected through the switch loses connectivity to the modem. The devices connected through the switch still has connectivity between them, but the modem seems to have dropped off the network. The WiFi APs are still online with connection to the internet though, so I know the modem is still online. And the switch is working since the devices connected can still ping other devices on the IP they had before the modem dropped. When I remove the ethernet cable from the Sonos Bea
This is a completely speculative inquiry that cannot be validated at this time, but I'm curious as to whether people believe it to be conceivable. Based on what I've observed and what's forthcoming, it appears to be a significant likelihood.Sonos acquired the voice assistant business Snip some time ago, and it is now seeking a leader for its Home Theater OS division. While considering how consumers may subsequently utilise their own voice assistant to control not only music but also televisions, I recalled that Matter has also been delayed till this Fall.Suddenly, I realised something because of this. What if Sonos takes advantage of this and creates not just a music/television voice assistant, but a full-fledged home voice assistant that will have access to a plethora of Matter-compatible devices this fall, thereby rendering Sonos independent of third-party voice assistants such as Google, Alexa, and Siri?It will be intriguing to observe how this develops and whether it becomes a real
Everything was working fine with my arc and Panasonic tv.But after the last Sonos update:The tv sound is not in sync.The (sky) remote no longer controls the arc volume/mute but now controls the tv instead.The tv sound plays at different sync to arc at the same time. Not sure what’s got out of whack. Any help welcome.thanks
I have recently moved home.I have 4 Play ones and a Sub all linked by a Sonos Bridge all a few years old.They worked fine in my old home.I tried to set them up yesterday after updating but its not finding any of them on the S1 app.I have downloaded S2 app but its nit compatible with a bridge.Will I need to purchase a Sonos Boost.Thanks for any advice.
So I thought I’d got this Sonos system off to a tee . Connected my play ones with my ray as a system and worked fantastic until I switched on tonight ray and the stereo system with the play ones all connected and showing in the app all good and connected but the problem is there’s no sound coming from the surrounds just the ray even though it’s showing all good in app I can adjust volume etc as normal but nothing coming out any thoughts on what’s wrong I’ve tried removing them and then adding them back but it’s the same no sound for the surrounds thanksnin advance
Hello,First of all I apologize if this question has been asked before. I tried to search for the solution but was unable to find the answer.I have two Sonos systems at home:In the Pantry: Beam Gen 2 + Sub Gen 3, connected to a Toshiba TV in the Pantry In the Living Room: Arc + Sub Gen 3, also connected to a Sony TV in Living RoomThings are working fine for both systems. I also have no problem playing same source in both systems.The issue is when I have to select which TV to play/disconnect from any of the system. Since both are connected to a TV, the Sonos App shows the same “TV” as the input names. I keep selecting the wrong TV as the source I want to keep playing because I have no clue which to select.Screenshot of what I’m trying to explain is attached.It would be perfect if I can rename the “TV” to “ TV-Pantry” and “TV-Living Room”.Is that possible?Thanks,Danny
Hello, thanks for reading my question. The community has recently helped me resolve another more complex problem than what I am about to ask in this thread. It is great that the more knowledgeable members here are so generous with their time. Thank you very much in advance. I live in two different cities. During the work week I am in one city, and weekends in another. Currently my Sonos system is setup in my weekend location (I’m not well off, it sounds better than it is, believe me). I have an Arc, Sub 3 and a pair of Moves. I simply want to take the pair of Moves with me to the home I live at during the work week. I do not need to take the Arc and Sub, just the Moves would be fine. Is it as simple as going to the work week location, turning on the App, it won’t find a network that it knows, and then using the Add a Trusted Network function? I would guess if that is the case then you just add the Moves as products one at a time and recreate the pair? If so, when I return on the weeke
simply trying to upgrade to the S2 controller and it keeps giving me the screen “Sonos Found on My WiFi Network” with the options of opening the S1 Controller or More Options. Their is no button on the more options tab to Forget my existing network so i end up in a loop with the new app directing me to the existing S1 App. All existing devices on the existing network are S2 compliant. Funny this is it has a button on the options to downgrade products to S1 but nothing to upgrade to S2Do i need to uninstall the S1 APP and start fresh? Sonos should make this a simpler upgrade for sure as some even say you can have a S1 and S2 network co-exist but i don't know how that would work when the new controller always looks and points to the existing S1.Just need some ideas how i can deactivate or upgrade the S1 to the S2 or should I just kill the S1 and start fresh.Although I'm not a tech nerd I am very analytical and can figure things out pretty good. For a company whos mission is to make home
I have had trouble getting my Sonos system to work for the past few months, since installing an Eero WiFi system, and I wanted to share what I learned so that I help others avoid the headaches and hassle. The problem: After installing a network of Eero WiFi devices (three eero Pro devices and one eero Beacon extender), my Sonos system stopped working reliably (would not connect, drop devices, etc.). I tried restarting, reinstalling units, etc., etc., without success. The solution: Over the past two weeks, I have read a number of posts on this Sonos support site that helped me get the system working again today. Here is what I did and some comments on my system: [list] [*]Enabled "Bridge Mode" on our Xfinity Wireless Gateway device -- got instructions on how to do so on the Comcast website (need to log in from your internet browser and follow a few steps) [*]Connected the eero Pro device that was indicated as the "gateway" (was the only device that my eero app showed as being the "g
I successfully used an Ethernet cabled Sonos Playbar, two Play 3s, two Play 1s, one PortWith a Virgin Media Hub4, smart TV Sony. The Playbar and Play 3s were joined as theatre set-up and the Play 1s are in separate, smaller rooms, as is the Port with a record deck. All played without problems using the Sonos app of course.T original Hub4 developed a fault and was replaced with new Hub4. Now only one Play 1 and the Play 3s will ‘attach’ to the wifi and function.It has not been possible to attach the Port, Playbar or one of the Play 1s to the system at all.I have spent a lot of time trying all suggestions I can find on the Sonos official site, Sonos community and in general on the the internet, including a factory reset of all speakers, to try and link the system back up with my wifi.I understand Sonos is trying to work round ‘issues’ with the Hub4. Any suggestions as to how I can get my Sonos equipment up and running again, it is just a few very expensive bricks at the moment. Is
Hi everyone. I am trying to setup my Symfonisk using the Sonos app. When setting up the app ask me to go to the IOS accessory settings to connect my Symfonisk with my wifi. While I click on the black button I get a window saying ‘searching information about your network’ ‘looking for my network name’. Suddenly I get a list of all the networks in my building, but mine is not on the list. Wich I find very strange because every other device that needs wifi can find my network, even my iPhone which I am using to setup the symfonisk. Does anyone have a solution?
Previously my Sonos system was fine. I had an Arc joined with a Sub Gen 3 in a room. I then purchased to move’s and added them no problem. Things ran fine for several weeks. I then cahnged my modem to a newer Rogers Ignite modem. No problem, updated the network and everyting worked fine. Suddenly one of my moves looked like it was conected, solid white LED, but when looking at the system it showed Move L/? meaning that one of the Moves just didn’t seem to be reporting to the Sonos app although the LED light remained solid white.There was no sound from the one Move, the Arc, Sub 3 and other Move were fine. I am really so not impressed with Sonos at this point. I went and unistalled the app three times, restared my phone. It just keeps remembering the previous install it seems. I want to have the app be reinstalled so that I can begin adding all the products again, but you can’t. Products can’t be discovered even when powered on solid white lights, no system exists to forget. You can’t d
I was very close to returning my Sonos Move before I found some posts here guiding me how to fix this. The previous post are kind of old, so I decided to make a new one, I cannot believe that this is still an issue - if someone here can explain why a default setting on a fairly common WiFi router will cause so much problems with Sonos Move (instability - disconnecting from WiFi all the time, google assistance not working etc) - I will be most interested to hear more about it.The fix is here (copy/paste from another post here). You need to log into the router - here is what I did: Connected an Ethernet cable to the ASUS RT-AC88U WiFi router, typed 192.168.1.1 in an internet browser and logged into the router (default username and password is “admin” (you should change this, I did and spent a lot of time trying to figure out what I changed it to...). navigated to the menu described below and disable “Airtime Fairness”“Wireless menu >> Professional Tab >> Airtime FairnessThis
Just got my Ray, and hooked it up to a fairly modern Samsung TV via optical connection (Model Number : UN50J6200AFXZA ). However, I cannot configure the Samsung RF remote to use the volume buttons to control the Ray. I followed the guidance via the mobile app to add the Ray as a Home Theater device etc.The guidance says to “go back to the Universal Remote setup menu and select one of the other input devices you’ve added, like a cable box or Blu-ray player. Select the other input devices and choose Use with Home Theater. Do this for all of your active inputs.”Are there any Samsung owners out here with the same issue
Hi all - I have a Connect and currently have it set up to receive audio form my turntable’s preamp and then output to two active speakers, it sounds lovely. I have a headphone amplifier and DAC set up to listen to audio from my PC, laptop or whatever I connect to the DAC and want to see if I can somehow listen to the “line in” from there. My question: has anyone found a way to stream the audio from a Connect or Port to a laptop or PC? Kind of a reverse set up. I would like to listen to my vinyl using my headphones sometimes rather than having to listen through speakers.My desk set up is not too near my connect so it would require a lot of RCA cable to connect the output of the connect to my headphone amplifier.
Hello I currently have a 5.0 sonos system consisting of a playbar and 2 play:1 surround sound systems for the home cinema and a denon df107 system for the music. My plan is to replace all that with the new generation sonos amp associated with two bookshelf speakers that have yet to be defined, connected via HDMI to the TV. I have several questions about this: - is it relevant to replace a playbar, for which I am disappointed with the stereo spatialization, by a sonos amp? - what about the surround effect generated by the 2 play:1 associated with the amp? Are the effects well managed? Is there a degradation at this level compared to the playbar?
Bonjour J'ai actuellement un système sonos 5.0 composé d'une playbar et de 2 sonos play:1 en surround pour le home cinéma et une chaîne denon df107 pour la musique. J'ai pour projet de remplacer tout ça par le sonos amp nouvelle génération associé à deux enceintes bibliothèques qui restent à définir connecté en HDMI à la tv. J'ai plusieurs questions à ce sujet :- est-il pertinent de remplacer une playbar, pour laquelle je suis déçu de la spatialisation stéréo, par un sonos amp ?- que penser de l'effet surround généré par les 2 play:1 associé à l’amp? Les effets sont ils bien gérés? Existe-t-il une dégradation à ce niveau là par rapport à la playbar?
Hi- I moved homes and am trying to set up my old Sonos Sub:Gen2 with my new Sonos Arc. It looks like Sonos has my Sub:Gen2 still registered with my old home and I don’t have access to that old system via the Sonos app to unregister it from that system. How do I get it set up with my new system in my new home?
