I already own a Playbar and recently purchased a Play 1. One thing I find invaluable is being able to control the Playbar using the TV remote, even if playing music. It is very intuitive and easy to use. What I've noticed however is that now when grouped with the play 1 the TV remote volume control only manages the Playbar vs. the whole group volume. Is there a way to add an option to have the TV remote control either only the Playbar or the [b]whole group[/b] volume once grouped? Would help to extend the handy and intuitive control the bring the volume up and down across the rooms.
For those who would like to stream directly from their native streaming service (Apple music, spotify) iOS app to Sonos, check out Airsonos (just google and you will find instructions how to install this free software on your computer). This will allow you to use the superior native apps discovery and playlist functionality and effectively bypass the feature lacking sonos app interface. One day I would love to see this functionality be integrated into the sonos speaker software... Works like a treat, but note that you must have your computer running in the background so the airsonos software can perform the bridging between your iPad and the sonos speakers (via AirPlay iPad functionality)
Me and a friend are interested in play 1 devices. We were blown away in a demo today in store but if we go camping for example where there is no wifi router, could the Sonos be configured to connect to a iPhone Hot spot and play music (assuming there is power) ? Is this possible somehow either playing music from an iPhone or iPad over a hotspot on the device straight to the Sonos without a router ?
Yesterday I noticed that some songs I'm sure I've played before on my Sonos have become greyed out and protected. These are all recent iTunes purchases, so shouldn't be affected by the pre-2009 DRM issue. Bizarrely, one album is half protected, half not. Is it a coincidence that I installed iOS8.4 yesterday and signed up to Apple Music free trial? Any suggestions (other than paying Apple more by signing up to iMatch?).
Firstly - Awesome products (hardware and software) world leading and world beating, there is no other option for ease of use, reliability, flexibility and sound quality in my opinion. Main point - I'm sure the development team are in deep at the moment with Apple and I'm aware that an integrated solution will be available in Q4-2015. My idea or question is can it be integrated directly to AppleMusic App (Music on iPhone, iPad) so you don't need to launch the Sonos App. Why do I ask? Well I fear that the personalisation and sheer richness of the AppleMusic service will be lost if it is integrated in a similar way to spotify on the Sonos App (menu driven etc.) Also if I'm moving between car or walk into house the ability to seamlessly stream music to sonos to continue my listening experience would be, well 'magic'. So if anyone has any influence over the development cycle and roadmap and this could be flagged as a potential it would be much appreciated.
SonoS Play:1 Pair not playing syncronous rather drifts into more and more echoing (Paired as stereo pair)
My new set of Play:1's cannot stay syncronized .... (Paired as stereo pair) First of all I posted a comment here at this thread yesterday: [url=https://ask.sonos.com/sonos/topics/speakers-not-synced-in-stereo]https://ask.sonos.com/sonos/topics/speakers-not-synced-in-stereo[/url] Secondly: I tried changing the wifi channel (1, 6, and 11), factory reset and rebooting them individually. Nothing works. The Play:1's keep drifting into echoing after about 120 seconds of stereo paired playing. Is there anything I can do apart from all the above that was tried out to get my set of Play:1's to play in proper stereo without echoing i.e. playing syncronized? I would really appreciate a support response to this.
I've seen this question a few times, but cannot find a solution and would like my system checked out. I have a Connect, SUB, and three PLAY:5's. The system is set up to have 3 groups, and I run them connected to one another 90% of the time. I have no issues with the services or other inputs, however, my TV and streaming inputs are a hit-or-miss thing. When I last moved, I upgraded my internet signal and speed to be at 100mbps and I have connected the CONNECT with ethernet directly to the modem/router, so that shouldn't be an issue. I have line in coming from either the TV or from the cable box. In both cases, every once in a while, I get a garbled/cutting out of the sound. It recovers, but it is extremely annoying. I have to keep it on Automatic to have a decent watching experience, as if i change compression, the lip sync is terrible. I sent some diagnostics to the support team and have usage data on, so im hoping you can see that information and make an assessment.
I have been talking to SONOS support who have been very helpful, but couldn't resolve my problem......I want better sound from my smaller LED TV's <36"............and they eventually suggested that I get as many followers for this idea as possible, which would enhance the possibility of it becoming a reality. So, please, please, all you supporters of a smaller/mini Playbar, please like and follow this conversation to continue to pile on the pressure on SONOS to take this request seriously. Thanks :) [i]This was my question to SONOS support:------[/i] "Thank-you for spending the time to respond to my query, I appreciate your efforts in trying to find an answer to my problem. However, it would seem that there really isn’t a SONOS solution for smaller TV’s, or to put it another way, a SONOS solution for all the TV’s in a home. What it needs is a mini wall mountable version of the Soundbar, one that doesn’t necessarily have to produce full surround sound, but one that could provide bet
As a full time wheelchair user I like to have all my connected devices all connected in one place, will I be able to add my sonos music system to Apple Homekit? As more and more people are joining the home automation system I'm hoping sonos will add there support to Homekit.
I am an installer for a Sonos retailer, we've sold a customer a play bar 5.1 package with the sub and two play 1s, however the room is huge and the sub can only be placed on either end of the seating area, so it ends up sounding unbalanced. The customer would like to add another Sonos sub to the system to balance out the bass with a sub on both ends. Normally this is easy in a typical surround scenario, but after agreeing with the customer, I did a quick google and seem to have discovered that 5.2 surround is not supported! Are you guys crazy??? This is like saying "no" to an effortless SUB sale, AND making this customer rethink his decision to go with Sonos for surround. He also has a Sonos connect, with a big amplifier and zone volume controller connected to speakers throughout the house, but the connect (non-amp) did not pair with the sub (I tried this before setting up the play bar) so the only solution I could come up with was to have a wireless sub kit and non-Sonos (KEF is
As part of moving to a new house I just upgraded all our televisions to Samsung UN65JS8500 SUHD 4K TV's. Unlike our old house, however, our new home isn't pre-wired for 5.1 and 7.1. I am an avid SONOS fan and have quite a few SONOS devices and decided to move to using it exclusively for surround on the TV's (to avoid sheetrock work!) . However I am looking for advice on setting up the system because many of the TV's will have an Xbox One, PS4, DIRECTV, and possibly and Apple TV. I was thinking possibly an optical only switch as a possible solution but liked the HDMI switch option (if it supports a Logitech Harmony universal remote). However I don't know of an HDMI switch that support HDMI 2.0a and allows for the 4k or HDR pass through. Thoughts? Any ideas on a setup?
Hi All. I'm trying to play my audible audiobooks on my Sonos system. I've registered them within the Mac controller and that has been accepted. Unfortunately I cannot find them in the controller. The books are held within iTunes in the iBooks section. I feel this might be the problem. Can you offer any advice?
