no atmos Dts 5.1 when playing a blue ray
I have an lg television 49UN711C0ZBwhich is connected to my Sonos arc through the earc port and the sound set to pass through to the sound bar.HDMI 1 is set to bitstream and I have connected a Sony input x800m2 blue ray player.this is my second blue ray player that I have bought when playing a film the trailers sound amazing with the Sonos app reporting that they are a 5.1 formatas soo. As the film starts to play the sound quality drops and the effects are reduced.the Sonos app is reporting the sound as stereo.this is frustrating as I get Arnos and 5.1 when I use any of the tvs built in apps and also 5.1 from my virgin boxcan anyone help me with the correct settings as I don’t want to send another blue ray player back
Ray randomly going on ute
I have just recently moved to my SONOS system which is superb. I do have one issue as I have a Ray connected to 2 One SL speakers and Trueplay set up. A couple of times now it goes onto mute. When I tap the Play on the Ray it comes back to life. Any idea why this happens and how do you deliberately set it to mute as I cannot see any instruction to do that?
connecting sonos beam with Epson EH-TW7000
I know that this question has already been answered but I have found a simpler and cheaper way for anyone still struggling with this issue. I brought an audio extractor off Amazon: 4K Audio Extractor HDMI by OREITo make this all work, plug your source into the input and projector into the output, then plug the sound bar into the optical port. Make sure that in the projector settings the audio out device is set to AV receiver and the go to the sonos app and go though the “tv setup” after this you should be all good. At time of this the audio extractor is only £44 which is cheap compared to others on the market. I hope this helps :) Moderator Note: Modified in accordance with the Community Code of Conduct.

Does SONOS soundabars really enter standby?
Hi,I just bought a SONOS Beam and I was very surprised to find out that there is no indication/notification/setting to see if/when the soundbar enters in standby.Everyone says the same old story: SONOS has a special standby mode when not used.That’s all! I am sorry, but i am not buying it! I will buy a multimeter socket and test it myself to see the power consumptions between day and night.
Installing Sonos In-Ceiling Speakers From Above?
Perhaps a crazy question, but here goes:I’d like to add in-ceiling sonance speakers in our family room. Problem is, it’s a 2-story tall room so the ceiling is probably 25-30-feet tall. I’d rather not rent a scaffold or lift to deal with it. So that got me thinking: Since there is attic above that room, would it be possible to install the speakers from above? What I was thinking was Step 1: cut the holes from the attic. Step 2: drop a fishing line/rope/whatever through the hole to the floor below. Step 3: attach the rope to the speaker. Step 4: attach the speaker grill to the speaker. Step 5: Carefully pull the speaker up to the hole from the attic. Step 6:???????????? It seems like steps 1-5 will get me a speaker that is in place, but not secured. I suppose the big question is I can you twist down the locking mechanism from the back side of the speaker? (See picture) Anyone have experience with this? Or does anyone have a speaker handy to see if there’s a way to lower the clamps from t
Music Library setup for personal lossless files
I’m a brand new Port user coming over from the Squeezebox/Logitech Media Server world after 10 years. I’m aware of others that maintain their own digital music collection locally saying that Sonos seems to be abandoning that market segment, but is the S2 controller really that limited that it can’t see the ARTISTSORT tags in my extensive FLAC library and sort by last name instead of first name? Also apparently I can’t set it to NOT show artist names associated with songs in compilations so my Artists list isn’t so cluttered? I knew I’d be trading off some customization options by moving to Sonos and I’m glad not to have to spend so much time tinkering with my SB Touch just to get it to work with my network, but I thought there’d be some flexibility for displaying my music the way I want it to. The Music Library options in the S2 app for iOS (Settings > System > Music Library) are ridiculous! What do others do? Are there 3rd party apps that work well with lossless libraries? Any s
Sonos Arc with Apple TV 4K Audio Format (Dolby MAT encoder) Sound Quality Questions
I do know Apple TV 4K uses Dolby MAT encoder, and apps like Netflix will show the “PCM Multichannel 5.1” instead of something like “Dolby PCM Multichannel 5.1” for this reason. When I play the same show from Apple TV 4K (PCM Multichannel 5.1) and from the internal TV’s app (Dolby PCM Multichannel 5.1), I can easily find “Dolby PCM Multichannel 5.1” is more dynamic, more detailed and louder. My questions: Is “PCM Multichannel 5.1” the more RAW and accurate one? Or it is just a downside of how tvOS processes the audio format? Should we use “dolby digital 5.1” in Apple TV’s audio format when we are not watching any Dolby Atmos contents? Thank you in advance!
Is Sonos Controller For Mac v.14.18 compatible with Mac OS 10.5.8?
I’m using a Mac G5 running OS 10.5.8 as a server to access the majority of my music library files via a network connection to my (newer) iMac running OS Catalina 10.15.7.I have no issues accessing the music library from the G5 on the iMac, but the Sonos Controller or iPhone app cannot access the G5 library...I’ve confirmed sharing settings and believe them to be correct.Is the Mac G5 (OS 10.5.8) too many generations removed and incompatible with current Sonos Controller software of iPhone app?
Is there a way to "thumbs down" songs from Apple Music
Hi! I’m in the process of changing over to Sonos from a more traditional system and have connected my Apple Music account which is what I use to stream 90% of our music. Is there a way to “thumbs down” a song using the Sonos app so it gets skipped and doesn’t play again?
Amazon - Purchased Music - only partially loading
Hi, been using Sonos many years and I frequently use the Sonos app to play my purchased content from Amazon Music. After the recent prime library change, only the first 50 or so of my songs load in the purchased content section of the Amazon Music integration in Sonos app. Searching for songs I own outside of the first 50 alphabetical on Amazon do not show either. I have reauthorized and that didn't help. Anyone else having this issue? How do I resolve?
I have recently lost the ability to control the balance of my rears, when used as rear surrounds. Sonos have told me that the only way to restore the balance control is to separate them from the room as surrounds. When set up in trueplay mode or not they, the rears, are out of balance which makes listening to music terrible. This can’t be correct. Can it?

problems with incompatible products between S1 and S2
im not sure what has happened, I am still using the s1 app but three of my speakers now say they are incompatible and they worked fine before, I am trying to down grade which has worked on one of them but not on the other two, but even the one that is downgraded will not let me add it back into the sonos 1 app as its saying its needs to update first and it cant update because of a problem with the boost and one of the other speakers, this is all way beyond me
