Can Sonos Work with This
Hello all I moved into a house that has speakers in the ceiling in most of the rooms (about 7 rooms?) - there is a CD player and DAB hooked up but I can’t see an amp. The below is what’s there.If I replaced the CD or DAB with a Sonos Port, would that work?I understand that each room can’t be isolated with one product but I should be able to say set all downstairs speakers to the Port input.Any help appreciated.
"keine Auswahl verfügbar" "no selections available" S2 PC and iPad
Out of a sudden no Genres, Titles etc. anymore. On Win 10 PC as well as on iPad. The NAS is still seen by my Win 10 PC and a playlist plays.Seems like the whole index is lost. No idea why, as I had changed nothing, no tracks added or deleted, no nothing. Also in the PC controller I can’t select a new indexing, as it is greyed out.Solution: deinstalled S2 completely, downloaded and installed it again, as admin and allowing firewall configuration (which I most probably had done the last time before also). Then I was allowed to index and after this was finished, Tataaa! Works. Question is for how long, because a few weeks ago I probably went through this already, as downloaded S2 install exe’s date tells me. This time I made a record of this.
In the last month or so - the Android App no longer shows what is playing if started via Alexa
For a year or so, I’ve had no problems asking Alexa to play ‘My Soundtrack’ or anything else. I could look at my phone and using the Android App skip etc, now I can only pause, and I can’t see the track. If I start the music from the Sonos App - all works as expected - but - that kind of removes the point of using Alexa in the first place. I’ve tried removing/readding the skill, doing all the usual unplugging etc Anything else I can/should try?
Unable to access Pandora Radio
From my phone, iPad, or desktop, I can reach Pandora and play music. From Sonos, I can reach Tune In Radio and play stations. However, from Sonos I cannot reach Pandora at all. I get a message: "Unable to browse music - there was a problem connecting to Pandora" I'm using two Play 1 speakers via wi-fi; both are HW version 188.8.131.52-1 and Version 7.0 build 34735162c. The controller version on my iPad and iPhone is 7.0.1. The desktop is 7.0. I've reset the controller from the desktop and stopped the app on both the iPad and iPhone. I've cycled power on one of the Play 1's, though not the other. So, what's my next step?
SONY BRAVIA KD65XD8599BU
Hi everyone, Looking to replace my current Sony tv and would like to know if the SONY BRAVIA KD65XD8599BU will output DD5.1 through the optical port? The manual I've found online says "DIGITAL AUDIO OUT (OPTICAL) Digital optical jack (Two channel linear PCM, Dolby Digital, DTS)" but I'm not sure if this means it does or not?
Sonos Playbar and Digital Audio out from Samsung TV
I am having samsung UE37C5100 connected to playbar. Weird behavior here: i listen the same TV program directly and audio level is pretty low. If i listen to the same program while in PIP with the main set to DVI (PC output) the audio level is higher. Anyone is having similar issue? Thanks. I am on Sonos 7.
Seagate Personal Cloud or WD My Cloud
Hi Everyone, I know this topic is probably beaten to death already, but I could really use your help. We are looking at either the Seagate or WD cloud NAS for our home; it's predominant purpose will be for our music storage to play on Sonos. I've read all the reviews I could find (nothing that really helped as a comparison of these 2 units exactly), but I'm still stuck as to which will be the best choice to work with Sonos. We're using 2 MacBook Air laptops and Samsung tablets / phones. I would have to say Time Machine compatibility would be the secondary main requirement, which I believe both do. I have looked at the other manuf. but hubby is computer technology challenged so I really am just looking at the Seagate or WD. Would greatly appreciate your help!! Thank you, Heather
Sonos App conflicts with Pandora function for Pioneer in-car AVH-X3800BHS via bluetooth on iPhone6/7
Has anyone else experienced poor Pandora functionality with their Pioneer AVH-X3800BHS (car head deck) when using the Pandora app on their iPhone via bluetooth? For several months, I was getting intermittent connectivity and disconnects in the car when attempting to listen to Pandora using the Pandora function on the Pioneer head unit. I called Pioneer several times and each time they insisted that there is no known issue with the head deck interfacing with iPhones. I didn't believe them until one day it hit me - the Pioneer basically comandeers the iPhone's Pandora app and acts as an intermediary (to allow thumbs up/ thumbs down via the touch screen on the radio), but the Pandora function still resides on the phone. Sonos is the only other software on my phone that has anything to do with Pandora. So, I removed the Sonos controller app from my phone. Problem fixed! I then reinstalled the Sonos app to my phone and the problem returns. Has anyone experienced this? And more import
Connecting Sonos to Samsung TV, Blu ray player and Sky Q box
Hi I'm thinking of ugrading my tv and dvd player to a Samsung UE65K8000 TV and Samsung UBD-K8500. I already have a Sub, Play 1 x 2 and Sonos Playbar linked to my Sky Q box (can't connect old Pioneer TV direct) and Apple TV (gen 1) using an optical manual switch. My question is should I connect my Playbar directly to the new TV or still through the Sky Q box - are there any advantages/disadvantages either way. Also, I'm thinking I can get rid of the Apple TV as Netflix, etc is on the new Samsung TV. Can anyone advise if I am missing anything that this new setup would not give me. Thanks
Sonos Compatibility with Sharp Aquos LC-75N8000U - HDMI Dolby Pass Through Questions
I am setting up a small media room (10’ x 20’) solely for the purpose of watching movies and television, as we already have a separate audio setup for music for other rooms (a few AirPlay Bowers & Wilkens A7s, and a Nakamichi SoundSpace 8 connected to an Apple Airport Express). I have been considering a Sonos 5.1 setup as we need a 5.1 audio system to pair with our TV, and we do not need any additional music streaming services for this room - simply a decent 5.1 audio system that will work well with our television and streaming devices. My wife would prefer an audio system that could be controlled by our TV or PVR’s IR remote, and can be set to power on/off automatically with the television (Sonos can do this as well). We have purchased a 75” 4K Sharp Aquos LC-75N8000U (https://www.sharptvusa.com/tvs/4k/lc-75n8000u), and connected devices will include: Apple TV 4 64GB for streaming 1080p movies from computer, as well as AirPlay Mirroring from iOS devices.

Play 5 3.5mm input with TV (audio quality)
Hello, I have a playbar/sub/play 1's connected to my main home theater and it's awesome. Now I'm looking to add a single Play 5 to a bedroom TV. The TV has 3 types out outputs (3.5mm, optical & RCA). I connected the Play 5 via the 3.5mm and the quality is horrible (I increased the line in level via the app as well). My question is, would converting the optical or RCA outputs to 3.5mm yield better results? Anyone faced this before by chance? Thanks for any help.

Spotify Connect: Individual room volume control
Regarding the new beta release which integrates with Spotify Connect... Controlling playback from within Spotify I find it quite long-winded to change the individual volumes of the grouped rooms. To do that I currently need to: (1) From Spotify, click on Devices (2) Click on the room Group "hamburger ..." menu (3) Click on 'Sonos Group Rooms' (which launched Sonos) (4) Click on the icon of the song playing (5) Finally the song menu appears with the combined volume slider (6) Click on slider to get the separate room sliders (7) Change the volume of the required room Am I missing the easier way? Anyway, I'm aware one is limited when developing code from within another's application, so I understand the situation. My suggestion is to at least add the following to speed up the volume setting process ... When clicking on the (see step 3 above), display one more option over and above "Sonos Group Rooms", also display an option called "Set separate room volumes". Thi
Connect with an existing Sony soundbar
Hello! I recently had my first experience with Sonos while staying at a vacation rental and I am sold :) I have a living room Sony sound bar and sub that work quite well so I'm thinking of buying a play 1 pair for a kitchen and bedroom speaker and then a connect for the Sony. I primarily use an Xbox for all media cconsumption which routes audio and video into the Sony via HDMI, Sony plays audio, then routes video to TV (which is just a glorified monitor now) via HDMI. Questions arise when I have a connect running into the Sony. I'm assuming I'll have a new audio input from Connect into the Sony so ill need to switch between those to get either Xbox video/audio or streaming Sonos to work? Also will the Sonos connect turn on my Sony or will I need to either leave it on 24/7 or turn it on manually when I want to stream music? Anything else I'm missing here? Thanks a ton!
Connecting Sonos Amp to 4 speakers- will it reduce quality of sound?
Hello Everyone, I am new to Sonos. I just purchased a Sonos Connect music streaming device yesterday and connected it to my 28 year old Sony GX60ES Receiver and I am thrilled with being able to stream all my music from my iPhone! It works extremely well! However, I have a few questions about my speaker set up with 4 speakers and whether or not I should keep the Sony GX60ES receiver or switch to a Sonos Connect AMP. Below are the details: I just purchased 2 Bowers and Wilkins ceiling speakers to put into the kitchen ceiling. Here are the specs for the speakers: Bowers & Wilkins - CCM 683 8" 2-Way In-Ceiling Speakers (Pair) RMS Power 130 Watts impedance8 ohms Peak Power Handling130 watts Minimum Frequency Response35 hertz Maximum Frequency Response50 kilohertz Sensitivity88 decibels My plan is to have these 2 ceiling speakers hard wired to my 28 year old Sony GX60ES Receiver that has power output 100 watts per channel into 8 ohms and frequency response 5-50 h
Lockscreen widget for Android not working.
Hey fellow Sonos people, I recently got a new phone (Android 6.0). I installed Nova launcher on it, because I don't like the Huawei interface. Unfortunately I'm not able to get the Sonos widget working on the lockscreen. In the settings of the Sonos app, I've got the marks turned on to use the app from the lockscreen . Other apps, like spotify work fine on the lockscreen. Anyone got an idea? Grtzz. Jopio
Playbar : Lack of stereo separation when playing music
I have a new Playbar, and I'm wondering if it's faulty - I've read and followed all the instructions/ Sonos links about the available settings etc. The playbar is flat on the TV stand with no side obstructions. I've not really played much 5.1 content, but when playing stereo music e.g Spotify there seems to be very little Left-Right separation. I've tried Audio test tones which play frequency sweeps on Left then Right alternately, plus various music which has very clear separation e.g. end of Bohemian Rhapsody where there are guitar sections on each side alternately (not my normal listening but seemed a good test piece:-) If I get my head right up to the Playbar I can just about tell which side the sound is coming from, but it certainly doesn't project into the room - from a normal listening position it sounds like mono. The same source on a pair of Play1's has great separation, so it's not a source issue. I'm wondering whether or not my Playbar could be faulty?.(with 9 speak
Sonos Connect and Harman Kardon Onyx 3
Hi, I just got a Harman Kardon Onyx studio 3, as a christmas present from work. I currently own a Sonos play 5, sub and play 1. My question; is it possible to connect the Harman Kardon to my sonos setup using a sonos connect? I would think the Harman Kardon has a built in amp. Or should I use a connect AMP? The Harman Kardon has only a aux input, so I`m also wondering about if I can connect it using the digital output on the connect? Thanks for all answers!
New DISH remote and soundbari
I had to configure a new DISH network remote to my existing soundbar. The soundbar responds to the VOL + signal and increases the volume but does not recognize the VOL - . I can only decrease the sound by manually pressing the button on my soundbar.The old DISH remote worked fine ( until it broke and I had to get this new one). What is going on?
