Solved Sonos ARC disconnects from TV
Was reading many complaints. Eventually all complaints end with sending diagnostics to Sonos. But I didn't read about a solution, so wanted to add the solution I got. I have Sonos ARC connected to Samsung 75" smart TV. Arc connected to Hdmi 2/ Arc, also have apple TV and Xiaomi mi box S streamer. To solve the problem where Sonos Arc disconnects. I had to go into the xiaomi streamer and disconnect its CEC settings. Problem solved.
We listen to Music. I used my Sonos speakers yesterday. Why can I not use headphones today?
Tonight I hit the “Party Mode”. I will not get specific but there is a Sonos speaker all over the house. Except in the pool. Next to the pool yes.After saying hello to the neighbours and them something something, TURN IT DOWN!.. I decided to go to my headphones. Exit Sonos app and back to…. another app. I have read all the posts and the people saying that the app is a control centre, not sure for who, NASA or maybe SpaceX > “Starman Man”.. I just need to ask why? If I have Sonos speakers I use your app. If I had another companies speakers why would I open Sonos? Why can I not just use the same app for all of my music? My subscription is not with Sonos. Your blocking of local playback does nothing for your brand. It just makes me ask if I should look at Apple or Amazon. Their sound is not as good of course but sometimes I just want to listed to music. Yesterday via my Sonos speaker. Today via my headphones.
Feature request: Adjust Night Mode strength
I’m not sure how to contact Sonos regarding feature requests so I’ll just add it here and hope for the best: I would like to be able to adjust the amount of the “night mode” effect used. I live in an apartment and there’s only maybe a 2-3 hour window in each day where I can fully enjoy my surround system. Unfortunately that’s during the day when it’s bright in my living room.Because of this I have to use “night mode” almost exclusively when watching content. While it sounds great, it’s a bit too extreme for normal daytime use. If I could bring the effect down 50% it would be perfect. I think that a lot of users would appreciate this function and a lot of purists might be less disgusted to hear it was being used. 😁
Need for user adjustable mid range EQ on Arc / Sound bars.
Can Sonos put an update so you can adjust the volume level of Arc just in the same way you can independently adjust the volume levels of the Sub and Sonos Ones (surrounds), when all four are linked in a home theatre set up. Since the new firmware update the Arc sounds more suppressed /muted.Also, it would be very useful if in a future firmware update if Sonos can add to the existing EQ treble and bass, an additional mid-range level adjustment. i.e. User adjustable treble, bass and mid-range too! This would really help those who want to tweak vocals and mid-range in music and movies like they do with bass and treble. It would be particularly useful for soundbars like the Arc, but also would be nice for other standalone speakers too. The dialogue enhancer feature is too restrictive and does not work with pure music playback (non movie) and is not a substitute for mid-range EQ level adjustment.
What TV specs do I require to purchase any Sonos
Hi there, I want to purchase Five and the 2 Room Set with Arc. However, I’m unsure of what are the minimum TV specs required for them to work smoothly? Could anyone help me please? That will determine if I can purchase them now or wait until I buy a new TV :)Thanks!
Sonos ARC + 2 AMPs
Here is the thing: Im planning on buying a Sonos ARC soundbar for my TV room, I will add the subwofer also, and also the ceilling speakers with an AMP, and as I have been reading, I will connect my ARC soundbar to my tv thru hdmi arc or earc, and the ARC will pair with the AMP which will have the ceilling speakers connected, right? By now everything is good, butttt I will also like to add a pair of sonos outdoor speakers, so I can hear an sports game indoors, but also outdoors, or sometimes music indoors and the game outdoors, or vice versa.. my question is: is this possible? Will the ARC soundbar be able to connect to both AMPs? Will all of these sound scenarios possible? Thanks

Options to get lossy atmos from ARC only Sony TV
Hi everyone,So I just ordered a Sonos surround system (ARC + Sub gen 3, pair of One SLs).I have a 2017/18 Sony TV that I still love (75” Sony Z9D). Given its age it unsurprisingly only has ARC ( not eARC). So this question is mainly directed to people who have Sony TVs of this era or even other brands for that matter.The TV is rated to output Dolby Digital Plus which can in theory mean compressed Atmos. Almost all of Atmos that comes from streaming apps is via this compressed codec anyway. Lossless (or Dolby True HD Atmos) is mostly found on Blu Ray discs (which I don’t bother with). I usually use Apple TV as my streaming box (TV’s internal OS is clunky). However, Apple TV uses MAT encoding and PCM where the end result is the TV cannot take that and send it to the Sonos ARC as Atmos. Internal apps should work. Has anyone tried using something like an Nvidia shield or even a Google chrome cast Tv and get Atmos to the Sonos ARC via a Tv similar to mine?
Sonos Arc - LG conflict HDMI (ARC)
Just bought a new LG UQ90 TV to use with my Sonos Arc.Arc and LG have latest software versions and are connected by HDMI cable to EARC port. Setup was very smooth - LG even detected it was pulled to a Sonos - and the LG remote controls volume on Sonos.BUTThen I paired the LG TV with Sony Bluetooth headphones to watch TV when wide is in bed. Pairing was simple and worked BUT when I select the Bluetooth audio output on the TV it goes to the headphones for about 3 seconds ….then immediately switches back to the HDMI (sonos)! Very frustrating.If I turn the SONOS Arc off, then this doesn’t happen and the audio output sticks to Bluetooth. It seems as though the Sonos Arc being ‘live’ on the HDMI port is ‘stealing’ the audio, regardless of which output the user chooses.If I try to turn off the SIMPLINK off (HDMI-CEC)……it turns itself back on a few seconds later if the sonos is powered on. Again if I turn the sonos Arc off, then SIMPLINK will stay off on the TV. So seems that the Arc is sendin
Sub toy protector
Browsing ebay I ran across these Sub port protectors. Cheaper than the pre-made fabric protectors and less effort than making your own from speaker-cloth. If you have a plastic printer making your own might be fun.How they’d impact the sound I don’t know.https://www.ebay.com/itm/195315533156?hash=item2d79b68564:g:loIAAOSwFNdjDFlP&amdata=enc%3AAQAHAAAAkOOAuJTc6pjUNslRYX4TfBWcouHq%2Fh4JvvbOfKcFw%2FSQeaOGAQqWEMKM%2BwCdaxe42pJODEzoY6raNfX1jgnYa5RSFpADVpNwszlLjs1EB0xqxZfU7wJVtcLDrmgAViOtwZ9vOWkTOJ4dcR2ZKNV9UGNP7hP4QzVDz%2B4IJSuI5M%2F4e4LULXiRtuxpuxWyfQ3Ekg%3D%3D%7Ctkp%3ABk9SR4i00pP3YA
ipad screen display drops down when changing rooms
I have devices in several rooms and control everything from my iPad. If I am listening, for example to music or a podcast, I have full screen display however if I change listening rooms the display invariably drops down to a narrow band at the bottom of my screen which I have to tap to restore full screen display. Although not a great problem, I do find it annoying particularly if I change rooms several times during listening.I contacted Sonos support and was told that this is the way the app is designed to operate!!! I replied simply , “Why as it’s very annoying?” “What is the reason for the app being designed to do this?” The only response I have received since are two customer satisfaction emails! Not very satisfactory to say the least.Anyone else find this frustrating?
All good - now!
I have a projector, Arc, Amp and 2 Subs. I had purchased an HDFury Arcana and had nothing but issues with the unit their tch support helped as much as they could.So I purchased a new Epson projector, LS12000, with eARC. Source is a 4K Apple TV.The CEC works perfect from the Epson remote control. The system is now reliable enough for my family to use. I’ve also remapped, using Pro Control, a Lutron Pico to control the projector and lighting in the room. One button turns on the projector and lighting and another turns everything off. Next, I’ll be looking to hack the Atmos and install in ceiling speakers and use the internal amplifiers, hopefully it’ll offer better sound.
