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.
Moving into a new house and looking for a setup for music listening (no movies) in a large open-concept space (entry, dining room, living room, kitchen). The speakers would be placed on top of the mantel. Listening levels would range from background music to fully cranked. My wife would listen to mostly classical (piano) and I would listen to a wide range of genres.Considering whether stereo paired Fives or Ones would be better, and whether a Sub or Sub-mini would be better. Significant price differentials here, I know. I wish the Fives had voice control.For reference, the home theater (very large) space will probably have dual 15” subs.Thanks for the advice!
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
Hi all,I’ve looked through the manual and help files and cannot find this answer. Can you do this?I want to get a Arc soundbar and then used my two Play 5’s as a left and right channel to the Arc as the center channel. Can this be done?I can see how to make the Play 5 a stereo pair and I can see how to make the Play 5’s surround speakers, but I don’t want that...I’m looking to have the Play 5’s work with the Arc in front of me as my left/right mains and the bar dead center.Can this be done?Maybe its just that simple….make the Play 5’s a stereo pair, put them in front of me in the left/righ position, add the Arc and done…..not sure if that will actually work as they all need to talk to each other.Thoughts?Thx!!
Hi there,My friends offered me a Pro-Ject T1 record player a few months back.It is a Project T1 regular (not the SB one) with cables attached directly to the device.I never owned a record player before and I am quite excited but I am not sure which sonos I should get to connect to my already owned Sonos One x2 and Beam.I see a lot of stuff related to the SB itself. Would anyone know if the port is sufficient? Or if I need the amp?Would love to get some help here!Thanks,Amélie
Hello,A new sonos user here and I’ve just bought a Gen 2 soundbar. It’s plugged into my 43 inch LG tv via HDMI Arc and it sounds good/loud. I watched Thor on Disney + which is supposed to be in Dolby Atmos but I didn’t hear anything to suggest I was hearing atmos. Is there a way to tell from the app or the soundbar itself?if I look on the app it says Stereo PCM. If I change the settings on the TV to pass through the app changes to Dolby 5.1. I presume I don’t want this as I only have the Gen, no surrounds or sub. Also it sounds terrible. any ideas to know I am hearing atmos? A particular film I could try?many thanks for your help!J.
Hi - I had Comcast as my wifi with my Sonos and had no issues. When I added eero with three nodes, while keeping my Comcast router, my sonos playbar would no longer connect. I direct connected the playbar to eero with an ethernet cable, opened the Sonos app and forgot my wifi system > network > manage network (even though it has the same name and PW), and went through the process to “fix the connection”. I tried to connect to the wifi once and it failed. So I tried again and unplugged the Ethernet cable while it was connecting. Fixed all my issues and works great (without resetting a bunch of settings). Thought I’d share if it helps!
Hi,I have Sonos Beam gen. 2 with to Sonos One SL as rear speakers. As my wife is hard of hearing we use an apple airport express to connect her headphones to the Apple TV via AirPlay. The beam is connected to a LG Oled via eARC. LG ist set to “passthrough”.When we’re watching Dolby Atmos movies and activate AirPlay additionally the Sonos app shows “stereo PCM” and I hear at least up mixed stereo from the rear speaker.But when I watch non-Atmos movies (for e.g. 5.1) the Sonos app shows Multi-Channel PCM 7.1 and the rear speakers don’t receive any sound information and are muted when we activate AirPlay additionally. Can anyone help me to understand this behaviour? What can I do to at least have stereo up mix output on the rear speakers when watching 5.1 movies.
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 have an Optoma UHZ50 Projector and I just realized it has an HDMI ARC port (HDMI 1). I plugged the Apple TV into HDMI 2, and ran a new HDMI cable (this one from Amazon) from HDMI 1 (HDMI ARC) to the Sonos Amp, and there is no audio coming through. I made sure the Optoma “Audio Mode” is set to the “SPDIF/eARC” option, and I did the “TV Setup” on the Sonos app for the Amp and it says it was successful / “done” - but there’s no audio. Is there some other setting I could be missing on the Sonos? In the Apple TV there’s an option to select a “temporary audio source” and when I do, I can select “Living Room” which is the name of my Sonos room, but I have a feeling that’s sending the audio via Bluetooth or something, because when I switch to the Fire TV it doesn’t work at all, and I don’t think the device should be selecting the audio output source - the projector should just be outputting the audio directly via the HDMI ARC, right? Am I missing something obvious here?
I have a Fire TV Stick 4K plugged into my Optoma UHZ50 HDMI Port (2). I’m running an HDMI cable from the Projector’s HDMI ARC to the Sonos Amp. Everything sounds great, except the volume +/- buttons on the Fire TV Stick Remote control do not work. The mute button does, curiously, but the +/- do not. I’ve tried messing with the Fire TV Stick “Equipment Management” options to no avail. Is anyone else running a Fire TV Stick with an HDMI-ARC to a Sonos Amp and able to control volume with the remote? FWIW, I also have an AppleTV plugged into HDMI 3 and it works just fine, I just needed to select the appropriate speakers in the AppleTV Audio menu. I don’t have a similar option in the Fire TV settings. What’s bugging me is the mute button works, but the volume +/- do not. Any thoughts?
I am looking into buying a few sonos speakers (because they do not need to be hardwired to my record player). I have an amp and a record player (it is not bluetooth) that I would like to continue to use but Im having a hard time figuring out what adapter I need. Is this a possible set-up?
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. 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.
