Pair of Sonos One Keeps Disconnecting
I recently installed a pair of Sonos One speakers. They keep disconnecting. I spoke to Sonos tech support, who ran a diagnostic and said that the problem was that my two routers have similar names (one name is “…..”, and the other is “…..-5G”. He advised me to change the name of the router and/or call the internet service provider. This all seems more trouble than it’s worth for setting up two small speakers and will likely just return them and go with a different system, but wonder if there are any simple solutions.
Does the Five switch easily between line-in and stream
I am currently looking to purchase a Sonos 5 speaker for my turntable. I want it to stream most of the time, but I also want it to be ready to play records at a moment's notice without changing the setup. I know it can do both, but I’m not sure if I have to constantly go into the app and select/deselect the "line-in" option every time I switch from streaming to "line-in" and back again? It’s a bit of a deal breaker if it doesn’t know how to handle switching on its own, as I won’t be the only one using the speaker on a regular basis. A much less important question... As I plan for future upgrades, I’m wondering if you can pair a sub-mini to a five (or set of fives) and an Arc at the same time. Not to play at the same time, obviously, but could one sub switch back and forth between the set-up that is used for home theater and the other set-up that is used for playing vinyl?
No backlighting on play/pause and volume buttons
I purchased a Sonos Beam and two One SLs last week. I noticed that the backlight is not illuminated on the volume up/down and play/pause buttons. I have verified on the Hardware>Touch Controls setting is enabled on all 3 speakers in the Sonos app (iphone). I have also checked that all speakers are up to date with the latest software and rebooted each speaker. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Sonos Website issue
Is anyone else having issues with the system and upgrade tab on the website? I keep getting blank screens and it never loads or http error 502. This has been for two weeks. Unfortunately no help from Sonos support. I have followed troubleshooting for my end but feel it is on sonos end.
Pair Sub Mini with Arc AND Fives
I have an Arc and a pair of Fives in the same room. I use the Arc for the TV and the Fives for music (the Arc and Fives aren’t paired with each other and i don’t use them at the same time for TV or music).Question: Could I pair the Sub Mini with the Arc so that I get the bass when watching TV and also pair with the Fives for listening to music?
Three speakers to one Sonos amp?
I currently have two in ceiling architectural speakers connected to a Sonos Amp in our master bedroom. I have a pre-wire for a speaker in master bathroom ceiling. What are my options for connecting that speaker to the Sonos Amp? is there a certain speaker I need to purchase? Would prefer to have my master bedroom speakers as one left and one right if possible. Thank you.
Anyone else notice their Sub (Gen3) case seems to stick out in the upper middle section which can be pushed in and out???
Recently purchased the Sub (Gen 3) and noticed that the plastic at the top of the sub seems to stick out on one side (most likely the serviceable side). I checked the store display which did not have this issue and also got a second Sub (Gen 3) which had the side sticking farther out than the first one. Just wondering if anyone else noticed this or has any info. Thanks Community!!!!
Sonos and BT smart hub 2 the fix
If you wish to know why your Sonos sound system keeps losing connection with your BT hub 2 The answer is pretty simple? How do I know. I tried every single possible configuration in order to resolve, with no effect, until I began to replace everything.I decided to purchased brand new Sonos SL play speakers at great expense, as mine were a few years old. Guess what! I had exactly the same connection issues.I disabled the 5ghz Wi-Fi frequency on the original BT Hub 2 router and consequently my Sonos speakers started working. Not exactly an ideal solution but still a bit flakeyI then bought a new unused BT hub 2 router on eBay. Updated the firmware to v0.31.00.10253-BTOnce setup, everything worked perfectly. No wi-fi or Sonos issues. Even with the 5ghz band enabled no wi-fin issues whatsoever.Plugged in my old BT hub2 . Yep most things worked as normal, but Sonos again started to dropped out. Swapped back to the new hub and then all fine,I can only deduce that BT hubs have an inherent d

Sonos Arc Home Cinema plus Five for music
Hello, I am planning to have a full home cinema set-up: Arc+Sub+ 2x One SL. I want to have in the same living room also 1 or 2 Fives for music. I want to pair both rooms so that I play music with everything at the same time, taking advantage of the Sub and Fives, while keeping the home cinema for TV.However, I understand this set up will give me a lag between the two virtual rooms while listening to the TV. How can I make that the Fives will not sound when I am listening to TV (to avoid the lag), but both rooms will sound when streaming music?I do not want to be grouping or ungrouping every time I want to listen to music or TV.Is this possible at all?Thanks!
