Since my Sonos app was updated to version 14.18.2 I get constant the following notification:Sonos: Stopping the service may interrupt playback notifications I can disable it if I uncheck the Background Services Notification, but this should not be the solution…Samsung S21 Ultra running Android 13
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’ve been running my system for 10+ years now, and one little feature always bugged me in the Desktop controller. I am predominantly using the Desktop controller to run my Sonos system, via a mini PC connected to my TV.The issue:The progress bar for any music I play is occupying only a minimal part of the screen in the top middle. There are miles of space to the left and right of it, space that is completely unused. I have used music players on my PC that will use the full width of the window for the progress bar, and adjust the size of the progress bar relative to the window size (i.e. Mediamonkey, MusicBee and others), allowing for much more precise control when trying to skip through audio files. Now on my 65” TV, the bar is just ridiculously tiny and skipping to a specific part of an audio file, especially in an audio book for example, is very tedious - and, imho, unnecessarily so.I have attached a screenshot, underlining in yellow the current progress bar. Clearly, making use of t
I am looking to buy a SONOS Amp and have a couple of questions before taking the plunge…Firstly, I have a record player and CD player. Is there any way to connect both to the SONOS Amp as there is only one line-in connection? Can I get a spliter of some kind.andCan I use wireless headphone with the SONOS Amp?Thank youDMB
Here we go again, new phone and Sonos volume control does not work from lock screen, either it be the volume buttons or the widget. Sonos has done it again! have been through all in app settings aswel as security settings, I have a pixel 7. I have to physically unlock phone and then able to change volume .... Good security hey..
Similar to what is outlined here: I experience in some cases a metallic / distorted / chirping sound on my Beam2. Happens with Panasonic and LG TV, so it’s not a TV issue.The metallic sound is somewhat in the background, but clearly noticeable. It is also somewhat correlated to the original sound, seems to be directly „derived“ from it, like a distorted low volume copy.For me only happens in night sound mode.When i disable night sound, the issue disappears my.Seem to happen more often on TV channels with PCM stereo. But I have not been able to relay reliably reproduce it. It happens quite often though.Switching the channel can make the error appear or go away.Wild engineering guess is some sort of Bitstream MSB/LSB alignment error. Re-init also means re-align and this can fix it. Possibly hardware not SW?Anyone else experiencing this?
So I’m doing the setup for surround speakers but I just don't understand what the app wants here.It asks me to get Infront of my TV and select the speaker I can hear.But where am I facing? Towards TV or rear speakers?Im selecting as you would face to the tv but it feels the speaker levels are off after TruePlay.So what is meant here? Facing towards TV or towards Speakers? Sorry but this is just confusing and unclear since it changes the whole setup.Maybe I'm overthinking here..
I have a Samsung TV in my living room that I use an Apple TV on. I play podcasts on it and frequently stream SiriusXM through the TV. There are two wired speakers connected to the TV - just left and right - no surround.I would like to add wireless speakers in my office and bedroom that have the same audio from the TV so I can listen while moving around the house. I bought a One SL thinking this would work without really looking into it first. Now I’m realizing there doesn’t seem to be a way to connect it to the TV.Is something like this possible and what do I need to buy? I’m happy with my TV speakers and don’t necessarily want to replace them but I would be willing to add a soundbar if that would work.
I am in the process of building a new house and we are in the framing stage. We are getting a new TV (Samsung Frame) which will be mounted over a fireplace. We currently have a Sonos Sound Bar , and two Ikea Bookshelf speakers set to surround sound.Mounting a Sound Bar is not going to be feasible above the fireplace since it is a frame TV. Since we are willing to buy all new equipment and prefer to go ceiling, what us the best option? Do I need bookshelf Speakers? Also, we like to extend 2 ceiling speakers in the kitchen area to extend music or tv as well.
As title. Can login on the web version (hence i can write this question!), but can’t login to use my Andriod app. I have reset the password multiple times, have uninstalled the app, have reset the app, have tried to set up a new account… None of these things worked. Help please! Many thanks
My Amazon Prime Music just stopped working. Had been working for several years. The account is not authorized. I’ve tried to reauthorize, and seems to complete but it is not ‘authorized’ when finished. Have tried deleting Amazon Music from ‘Music and Services’ and then re-adding it and seems to complete fine. But then it is not authorized. Any suggestions?
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
Some icons for the radio stations in "My Sonos" are blank.When I play a station with a blabk icon, the correct icon appears in the darkened bar at the bottom of the screen. So I presume the icon is available.Refreshing the app’s cache doesn’t help. How can I get the missing icons?(Background info: Android app, version 14.20.1, Dec 2022)
I see that people have asked similar questions, but I can’t seem to find the right answer. I have today a couple of sonos:1’s and 1 sonos:5. The latter has a vinyl player connected to it. If I would like to also connect a CD player to the same sonos:5 I will need a Sonos Port or a sonos connect, OR can I merely buy one more Sonos:5 and connect the CD player directly into that? I realise that I would then need to locate the new sonos:5 right next to the existing sonos:5 and that may be silly. What to do? PS: I am using Spotity for conveniency, and vinyl for the best experience here but I do have a lot of CD’s with music that is not on Spotify so that is the reason behind it. Additional question: I don’t think the Sonos sound is very good, but probably just ok. Is there anything I can do to improve the sound apart from spending 2000$ to buy more speakers, a sub, etc?
This is an old topic but all the answers that I find do not work for me.The only way that I can have synced sound and picture is by using the ‘normal’ setting in Sky q, the Dolby settings will immediately lose sync. I have checked my TV settings and there is no pass through switch but bitstream, I am told, will give me Dolby. No, it doesn’t.I connect my Sonos direct to the arc plug on my set. I have no idea what to try next.I need a genius out there to solve it for me!
I am planning to get sonos speakers for outdoor area. I have a pool area and garden at a total of 5-7000 sqft. I was planning to get 1 amp with 3 pairs of sonos architectural sonance outdoor speakers and a 6.1 sonance garden series with sonos amp. how should I calculate if that is enough or not? Is there a thumb rule to calculate?
