I have a home Sonos system with multiple Sonos devices on my home WiFi network. I want to be able to use my Roam at home but also take it to my office where my phone and laptop connect to my work WiFi network. What is the best way to do this so I can use the Roam without having to connect via bluetooth?
Hello,I have a CD transport connected via the Sonos optical-to-HDM adapter to the HDMI input on my Sonos Amp. This works great (and allows me to control the Amp volume with the CD transport’s remote control) but it’s odd to see this input called ‘TV’ in the Sonos app. I understand this is the primary intended use case for the HDMI input but I can’t be the only person using the optical-to-HDMI connection to get a digital audio input into the Amp. Please Sonos: Could we have an option to rename the HDMI input to a custom name in the app, like you can with the RCA input?
We have a large open space that is broken up by a few walls - The TV room is roughly 400 square feet, kitchen 300sq ft, Living Room 600 aq ft We have a Sonos Move we take all around the house. In the living room there are 4 in ceiling and a center speaker connected to the TV via Amplifier through HDMI ARC. Question -Should I go Beam under the TV and two ERA 100 with one in the kitchen and one in the living room to fill the downstairs with Music? Go with the Port on the Amplifier, add a Sub and two Era for the Living room and Kitchen Or is there a different set up you’d suggest? Again - filling the space with music is the main objective
Hello, like some of the users in the community, I have been hit with the curious bug of the Windows controller getting stuck at the startup icon because it is unable to bind port 3410.Log entry:<ApplicationData>@Module:module @Message:Can't bind (port 3410)</ApplicationData>As the solution that worked for me is different from the other posts I found, I wanted to share another. In my case, the reserved port was caused by a combination of Hyper-V / Docker / WSL2 reserving a bunch of ranges.Confirm that a reserved port is your problem by running netsh interface ipv4 show excludedportrange protocol=tcp and if you see a port range listed that includes port 3410, proceed.Disable Hyper-V and reboot Run netsh int ipv4 add excludedportrange protocol=tcp startport=3410 numberofports=1 to reserve port 3410 Enable Hyper-V and rebootThis permanently fixed the problem for me.
If you have Wi-Fi connection can you connect pair of roams in stereo mode with Bluetooth source like Samsung freestyle projector? And since roams need to be in bt mode to recive signal from projector that doesn’t unable em to work in Wi-Fi as condition for stereo mode? Thx in adv
Is there any plan to integrate volume sliders and play/pause controls on the “rooms” (zone selection) page of the app? I think it’s be very convenient to have control over each zone without having to load each zone in the app first. For example, if I have 3 zones playing music, I can alter the volume on one of the zones playing from the rooms page instead of having to select the room and then alter the volume.
I recently upgraded some of my old Play:1 speakers to the New Play One and assumed that i could re-use my existing Flexson adjustable speaker Stands. I was wrong. New stands supplied by Flexson are universal and they will fit but i don't want to have to buy new stands. Is anyone aware of anywhere of where i could just obtain the speaker holder/ base that fits to the top of the stem? I have looked at the instructions for the old one and the new one and they look like they use the same fixing method to the top of the stem. So i believe this is all that is needed. However i have spoken with Flexson support and they don't supply that bit. Is any one aware of a solution that allows me to re-use my old stands or aware of any where i can get the speaker holder/base ?
Sorry I am new to the world of Sonos.. just bought a house that has a compete sinks system. I want to input sound from a firestick. What I thought I would do is get a hdmi splitter that outputs a RC cables. Then purchase a Sonos PORT which then would allow that sound to be broadcast on all the other sonos speakers . Is this correct ??
My app consistently gets an error when opening, sometimes connects and often then drops the connection once music is playing. It does this on theee different iPhones. I have reset the Play 1, Re booted the router, checked MAC addresses match on the router but it still happens. Is it just a completely useless app as this has been going on for a year and forums seem to all have the same issue?
HiIs there a simple way, via the Sonos controller app (on iPhone/iPad) to retrun the source to TV after playing music? I’m sure there used to be an option but I cannot find it and wonder if it has been removed in a recent app update? I’ve read older posts which talk about an option in the app, but it doesn’t seem to be there. There are also posts regarding Beam that suggest “asking Alexa”, but since the playbar doesn’t have Alexa that option is also not available.Is there a way to do this now, or has the option been removed completely?Thanks
We have a Sonos Playbar (+2.1) . Our current setup is DVD & Roku into an HDMI splitter, HDMI to TV, audio via optical to the Playbar. It works reasonably well in 5.1 - there is some moderate lag depending on which app the Roku is looking playing (Amazon sync is frequently bad, Disney+ sometimes, too).We recently bought a new TV and I see it has an optical out. That opens up the possibility of taking the audio from the TV into the Playbar, instead of audio from the splitter.So, I wanted to ask: does anyone have any opinions about which is the best way to go?[Obviously the best way to tell would be to try, but I’m not up for a round of re-cabling right now. So I thought I’d ask, first.]
Hi folks. I have a beam set up with my TV. Considering two One’s to create a surround sound but wonder if all 3 devices connect with each other wirelessly? I.e all the new Ones’s need is a power source… I assumed this was the case up until I started being confused with amplifiers and so on, not sure if I need an additional item to sync together wirelessly now. Any advice appreciated. Cheers,Rhys
