I’ve read all the other forum posts related to this topic and couldn’t find a resolution. Sonos, please help us out here!When I Airplay movies and shows from my 2020 iMac to my Apple TV to my Sonos speakers, it works great. I get picture and sound. Wonderful. When I try to use Airplay screen mirroring to do the same, I get picture, but no sound. It doesn’t matter what device I try (2013 MacBook, 2020 iMac, iPhones, iPad…), I get picture but no sound. I have hung onto my clunky old wired speakers for this reason. Why do I still have to use my old junk speakers half the time when I have my nice new expensive Sonos speakers? Please help!
So I recently got an Apple TV and was looking forward to air playing to my sonos arc. The issue I’m having is that the arc audio keeps cutting out. It will be fine for anything from 5-30 minutes and then either the arc completely loses sound, or audio goes in and out. I then have to go into airplaybsettings on Appletv and switch audio input to tv speaker and tben back to air lay and after a few times of doing this audio comes back. I have no audio cutout issues using airplay with normal audio from my iPhone.I’ve been reading the issue with the 14.6 firmware. Since I only this week set up my Apple TV I am not sure if my issue is the 14.6 issue or something else. Also sonos seems to have acknowledged the issue but now said there is no issue at all so I’m not sure what is going on with my set up.
I was having issues with my Apple tv And arc so I decided to try wiring my arc with Ethernet. Upon doing some googling I found out if I wire the arc it creates its own sonos wireless network to connect the other sonos speakers with instead of relying on my wifi network. the question I have is in this case do all sonos speakers now use the new sonos wifi created by the arc, or is it that if a sonos is out of reach of the sonos wifi it will still connect to my home wifi ? The reason I ask is that the arc is in my living room, with two ones nearby. No issues there. But I have 3 other ones that are quite far away and I cant imagine them having a stable enough wireless connection to the arc for me to use airplay without issues. would appreciate some guidance on this. When I go into sonos app and into system info I see all of them now on WM:0
HiI have Arc, a sub and two play 3s as a surround system in the main room. In the last 24 hours the play 3s and the sub have stopped outputting surround sound. I deleted the play 3s and reset them up and all worked for about 10 mins then after I used trueplay the surround sound stopped again. The sub and the play 3s still show in the app and in the system.Would appreciate any help.Josh
Hello,On several occasions when carrying out normal tasks my Sonos system seems to reset, when this happens all my devices and music services are no longer in the app and need to be added again as if I am an all new user.This has happened when:I change my wifi connection - for example I have got a new router, so have a new wifi name and password I have added a new device to the system - for example I added a second roam to my system recently and everything was reset.It’s a huge inconvenience to have this happen, what am I doing wrong?Is there any way to avoid this happening?Thanks
Hi,I was slowly but steadily getting more problems with Sonos. First the radio was not working when I set up my alarm clock. Then the music did not start to play from time to time. In the end the alarm clock stopped working all together (not even with the “default sound”) and it was not possible to start any music.I was searching for updates but I got error codes 1101 all the time. I could see my speaker in the router dashboard though.I tried a lot of “restart your router”, “restart your speaker”, “set it to fixed channels trying all the different combinations” etc. spending days on it and nothing worked. My router is a new fritz box generation with standard setup.Eventually, I wanted to do a clean reset now and send all my speaker back to factory settings and wanted to set them up from the start.However, I cannot. When I log into my old account it still has all my speaker listet and when I want to use it for a new setup it tells me “error 1101” again. I tried setting up a new account
Has anyone else had an erratic volume issue when choosing their Sonos One/Room with Sonos One as your output through the Spotify iPhone app? I prefer it to the Sonos app due to better search results, but have noticed when the Spotify app is used my volume does everything from jumping up to the highest volume through to jumping to the lowest. Have also had it when asking Alexa/Google to play through Spotify.
Dear All, I recently bought a Sonos Beam Gen 2 and its connected to my Hisense TV via HDMI ARC. On the Sonos S2 App, its showing the Audio-in as Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 and the same on ‘Now Playing’ screen as well. Once done watching I used to switch off only the TV and Sonos will be left ON all the time (as there is no ON/OFF button on the device). And afterwards if I switch on my TV then the Audio-in on S2 app is showing as just Dolby Digital 5.1 instead of Dolby Digital Plus 5.1. The issue is solved once I restart my Sonos device or by unplugging/plugging the hdmi cable. Please suggest or guide me through any other solution if available.
Until very recently, I had no problems with the sound from my Beam. Then starting a week ago, I couldn’t change the sound volume, or mute the sound. (The on-screen sound volume bar showed volume increasing or decreasing, but no actual sound volume change occurred.) Today, the on-screen sound volume indicator shows that the sound is muted, and I cannot unmute, or increase volume. I can get sound from the TV speakers, and the on-screen sound volume indicator works. I tried (1) cycling the Beam off and on, and (2) switching the TV sound output between TV and Beam.Any suggestions?
Sonos version: 11.2.13Plex version: 126.96.36.19982 (same issue encountered with 1.24.x.x)Plex running in Docker container on an HP MicroServer serving music stored on same server. Plex app works fine and can browse/stream music from internal LAN and from outside LAN. Sonos app can browse music on Plex fine.Until recently, I’ve been able to stream Plex music to SONOS without issues. It stopped working a couple of days ago. A new Plex update became available today and I’ve tried that with no success. Problem description:I believe the following are related issues as they started at the same time.Variant 1:Using the SONOS appFind and select track from Plex. When Sonos attempts to play track it reports error:Unable to play track '<track name>' - the connection to Plex was lost.Variant 2:Using the Plex web app, the cast locates SONOS boxes but when trying to connect reports:Playback ErrorAn error occurred loading the media being played on "<sonos device>". Expected behaviour:SONOS p
I have a jellyfin server running on my Linux box, which is serving as my DLNA server, for music,etc.I cannot find a way to get Sonos to see jellyfin.I have tried going into music library setup and adding\\moray.lan:8096\web\index.htmlNothing. I don’t see it in the jellyfin log, or in the firewall (ufw) log This server is available via browser, android jellyfin app, my Denon receiver, Roku, etcOnly Sonos fails.Years ago, I added the music files via a Samba server, using the ugly SMB protocol. It works sending info to Sonos. But I prefer to switch to DLNA. I spent 90 minutes on the phone with Sonos support, but didn’t get very far. They agreed to put in a request for DLNA support. They were not happy that I was using Linux, though they claim support for NAS. They suggested that I install Plex, which is available for Linux. It is a possible solution, but I want support for 19 year old DLNA protocol.I can use the android jellyfin app to broadcast music to Sonos, though it shows up as PCM 4
Sometimes when I want to play Apple Music from my phone or computer to only one of the three speakers in our home, it plays to two. I want to unlink the Office speaker (One), from the Dining Room (Play 1) speaker but don’t see how to do that. I’m not sure why they’re behaving this way in the first place.Thanks in advance.
I was listening to Audible all morning over my Sonos and it suddenly disconnected. I went to reconnect and am getting a modal saying, “This content is not currently available to be played on Sonos.” I’ve literally never had an issue playing Audible over my Sonos. What gives? What changed? Zero help from any support from Sonos. Extremely disappointed right now.
Hi Sonos Community,Having issues using the LG G1 and the Sonos Arc when I want to use Bluetooth headphones on the TV. Maye one of you have some insights?So I’ve done quite a bit of research and nothing I do in the settings of either the ARC or the G1 fixes the issue. I have seen and read through the entire thread in the other channel but thought it worthwhile starting a new channel in the Troubleshooting section. I have reached out to Sonos via LiveChat and they advised that this is known. I have logged a support case with LG as well. Trying to set the G1 to use a pair of wireless headphones using Bluetooth whilst the ARC is connected using eARC.The ARC keeps forcing the audio out connection back to itself. The Bluetooth connection to the headphones disconnects after about 1-2 seconds when it reverts back to the Sonos Arc as the audio output device.I understand that this is how HMDI-CEC is meant to work but have tried everything to stop this behaviour, even setting the TV to optical ou
I have 6 S2 components and 4 S1 components, new Eero 6+ (3 pack) gateway wired via Ethernet to one S2 component, all the rest are wireless (as directed by Eero support). Eero gateway wired to Fios modem/router, named the new Eero network the same as the original router network name. Works for a bit then the S1 app says ‘could not connect to Sonos’ first when trying to control an S1 component, I keep trying, then it fails completely and all zones are gone and no Sonos network detected, not even the wired S2. Have rebooted and reconnected many times but keeps failing. Ready to return the new Eero as their online support documentation says ‘all components must be S2 compatible’
We bought the FIVE + Pro-Ject T1 SB package, but the packaging on the turntable was poor. Didn’t realise it came from a separate company. Counter balance was loose and damaged the arm. Have sent back for refund as couldn’t get an exchange - to Poland!! Shame no UK return address. Anyone had similar issues? Am I safe to buy another one? ...in contrast, the packaging on the FIVE was the best I’ve ever seen!! 😄
System -> TV: Sony 65XH9505; HDMI cable: WireWorld Radius (connected to eARC from TV).Since the beginning I experience short sound losses when playing the most modern sound formats (Ex.: Dolby Digital Plus). I have factory reset the soundbar and TV. I have tried connecting and disconnecting power cables, HDMI and more tests with no result.I have noticed that the greater the amount of sound load, the more frequent the sound cuts, which seems to indicate that the data flow is too high and saturates the soundbar. With voices occurs at longer intervals than with music.Other information:If I check in Sonos App what type of audio is being decoded on Now Playing screen I display “Dolby Digital Plus 7.1” but if I go to Settings > About my System, I can see “Audio in: silence”:Any help in solving this problem would be most welcome.Thank you very much
