Hi. I have an LG C8 OLED TV and a Beam, connected Via HDMI Arc. I also have some Sony Bluetooth headphones. Whenever I try and play the TV audio via Bluetooth after 2 seconds it switches back to Arc. Is there anyway to prevent this? I have to pull the HDMI lead out of the Beam, but can it be disabled via the app or some other way? Thanks.
Hi, I have about 200.000 music tracks stored on my Synology NAS.I've read that the limit of files for each library is 65.000 so a created 7 different libraries with about 30-40.000 tracks in each.The system completed the index for the 2 first libraries but don't go further.How can I solve this issue? Or is the TOTAL files limited to 65.000 for ALL the libraries together?Thank you very much for your help!
I have numerous Sonos products - playbars, subs, 1s, 5s - and several non-Sonos speakers connected through Sonos Connects. Have all been working fine for years. Lately, after starting system (TV or music) everything is fine for 10-15 mins, then the non-Sonos speakers develop a delay (stadium sounding echo). The Speakers are Bowers & Wilkens run through a Rotel RMB-1 Amp and a Sonos Connect on each speaker pair / channel. Any suggestions?
I have been having MAJOR issues since February 2022 related to SONOS Playlist appearing and disappearing from the iPhone APP. I have an open case and have worked with technical support and no resolution has been found. This use to work with S1 hardware but since updating to S2 it has not worked correctly.When will this be fixed?
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
I am putting together a 5.1 surround system using Arc SL, Sonos One’s, and subwoofer. Since the One’s have microphones but the Arc SL does not, I understand that I can still use voice control--via Sonos voice, Alexa, or others. Is this correct? In other words, do I not need the Arc? I am not sure how to set this up. Also, how do I configure separate Sonos configurations? I want one for home theater (the 5.1 config mentioned above, and 4 other One’s for music throughout the house.
I already own a Playbar and recently purchased a Play 1. One thing I find invaluable is being able to control the Playbar using the TV remote, even if playing music. It is very intuitive and easy to use. What I've noticed however is that now when grouped with the play 1 the TV remote volume control only manages the Playbar vs. the whole group volume. Is there a way to add an option to have the TV remote control either only the Playbar or the [b]whole group[/b] volume once grouped? Would help to extend the handy and intuitive control the bring the volume up and down across the rooms.
I created a Sonos Playlist from some of my Amazon music last year. When I go to play it, it skips tracks and there is a pop-up saying my Amazon account isn't authorized. I reauthorize and play something else for a while. When I go back later, 10 or 15 minutes, same problem. So I do the whole routine until I give up. That is like 5 or more times. I've had enough. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.
ok, so i’m starting from zero. Going to buy a cd player and receiver, and i want to be able to stream music.My question is this: Do i need to buy a certain type of cd player and receiver so that i can then hook up a Sonos speaker? And do i need to buy bookshelf speakers as well, or will the Sonos speakers be enough?I’m looking at a Sonos port and a couple of the SL speakers.
Hi all,I’ve seen various topics about this , all with no clear answer, so I’ll try to spell my issue out simply and clearly.I have a Samsung Q70AA 65” tv, an Xbox Series X and a Sonos Beam gen 2.The tv is set to allow audio pass through and to allow Dolby atmos.The Xbox is connected via the 2.1 hdmi port. The settings are set to allow pass through and for Dolby atmos.The Sonos Beam is connected via the e-arc port of my tv, e-arc is set to on.Games in Dolby atmos have significant sync issues. Blu rays, tv and streaming apps do not. The Sonos app displays Dolby atmos when it should do. The tv dialog sync setting on the Sonos app makes no difference.The audio delay setting on the tv makes a slight difference but games in dolby atmos are still unplayable.I guess it’s an issue with the Series X? Has this been confirmed?I know I could turn Dolby atmos off for games but that defeats the point of me buying a Sonos beam with Dolby atmos.
hola buenos dias, la verdad que ya no encuentro manera de como conectar la barra sonos arc con la app de sonos para que me funcione con el sonos sub. ya conecte con la app de sonos la sonos sub pero para que funcione debe estar conectada con la barra sonos ARC, y esta ultima no me deja la app agregarla me sale un error del router al final de la instalacion ya lo intente con un cable ethernet y la verdad no he tenido resultados, estoy desesperado porque he intentado varias maneras y nada aun, seria alguien tan amable de ayudarme porfavor. o si hay alguna manera de que funcionen ambas sin usar la app de sonos seria posible?
Hey guys,While I have Sonos Beam gen2 connected with LG via HDMI (eARC) I can’t select any other output device e.g. bluetooth headphones. I can technically select it in TV menu for like 5 seconds, and then output switched back to HDMI (eARC). Is it a bug or feature? Thanks in advance!
Hallo i’ve a couple on Sonos One (one and one sl). If i’am not wrong buying a Ray let me allow to stream sounds from pc (youtube, games etc).This Ray will also enhance my music listening experience or won’t add any enhancement?is there any other product that will really improve the listening experience in my room and let me also connect the PC?Or the best would be buying sub mini for the two ones and a dedicated one amp for pc?
Anyone else experiencing the same issue? Multichannel PCM 5.1 blanks out for a second every 1-2 minutes. I don’t think it’s a bandwidth issue as it works flawlessly with Multichannel PCM 7.1 (thorough test) and Dolby TrueHD Atmos (quick test). And it may have been caused by the Sonos 14.10 update. Setup is PS5→ LG C1→ Beam 2 (via earc). 2 weeks ago before the 14.10 update, I watched a bluray film wherein I had my PS5 transcode the DTS-HD MA 5.1 audio to Multichannel PCM 5.1 (as the C1 does not support DTS) and had no issues. Earlier today, I played a bluray film for the first time in 2 weeks and I encountered consistent audio dropouts every 1-2 minutes. It had the same setup where DTS-HD MA 5.1 → Multichannel PCM 5.1. I tested other bluray discs including the one I watched 2 weeks ago and they all now have the same issue. Curiously, I’ve been gaming heavily on my PS5 the past two 2 weeks and haven’t had any audio issues. Then I realized that I’ve been using Multichannel PCM 7.1 when ga
Hello,New to Sonos. I have a pair of One SLs being delivered this week, an Arc on order and an S3 sub sitting here still in the box. I plan on using the SLs as a stereo pair in my office strictly for music. When streaming high resolution music from the Sonos app via one of the music services, (Qobuz, Apple Music, etc.) does Sonos provide you with the audio format details such as the bit rate, sampling rate, etc. or does it simply just indicate HD or something along those lines? Thank you.
I purchased 3 days ago and the status still preparing to ship and I cannot cancel it. A company this size without a 24/7 support is ridiculous. They only are available Monday to Friday. I would never had bought any Sonos products if I only knew. I am extremely disappointed.
Good morning. New to this forum.I have purchased a Beam 2 and hooked it up to my Sony Xr55a90j Works fine but with HD terrestrial channels e.g. itv, c4 and bbc HD because the sound format is different to standard def the volume is quieter. For normal about 30 works for me but change to an HD channel and have to increase to 40 at least.Is there any way round this?Also is there any way to power save the beam off. Ideally would be nice to switch it off and on with the Sony remoteThanks
I just updated the SONOS V2 app to V14.0 Build 67125130 on an iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus and they both will randomly not show the playlist that have been previously created. If we force close the SONOS V2 app then it will some time show the playlist. Both iPhones have been updated to iOS 15.3 and have been rebooted numerous times. All music has been ripped to the FLAC format and is stored on a SYNOLOGY DS1821+ NAS running the latest DSM 7.x operating system.
Does anyone have a solid recommendation for a multi-device universal remote that works well with Sonos?I’ve used the Logitech Harmony Remote and Hub to control my AV products and Sonos for many years. It’s a great system. Recently, the remote stopped sending commands consistently to Sonos and Logitech has announced that they have discontinued Harmony, so updates and support will trail off. I’m done trying to get this to work correctly.
I appreciate that Amazon have changed the format of their products and you can access less with prime however I still have more functionality when I use the Amazon Music app vs accessing Amazon via the Sonos app. For instance on the amazon app I can still see track listings on certain albums whereas on the Sonos app it just launches into playing the album and I’m not able to look at it select certain tracks?
