same problem when trying to use Hulu on Samsung smart tv. Diagnostic 7862103
Badge +1
Sound of the surrounds drop out for a little while sometimes. It seems totally random.
Didn't happen before.
Changing wireless channel doesn't seem to help.
No devices nearby that could be interfering.

Setup : playbar with 2 play3's as surrounds. Only the sound of the surrounds are affected (at the same time)

Diagnostic 7862161

Please fix, because it's really annoying
Thanks Ryan, that seems to have done the job.
Sound works on chrome cast. On the live tv it will just click and them come on after a while. Smart apps are not working either with clicking. My reference number is 7862594. Thank you

Same issue here although a hard power reset on the Playbar has restored audio thus far....also, it seems to be Dolby Digital related. When I change my TiVo Roamio to output PCM I don't have an issue....except that the surround is simulated, but that's by design. TV is LG OLED65C7P, surrounds are Play 1s, TiVo is HDMI to TV which is optical to Playbar. Diagnostic #7861924. It was uploaded/shared after the Playbar power was reset which has seemingly corrected the audio problems. The issues were 1. Audio volume levels across channels was significantly different, and 2. Center channel audio seemed significantly lower and jumbled if it was present at all, and 3. It took 15+ seconds to hear any audio at all after a channel change.

Can I make a suggestion? I know your engineers won't want to do it....I am one too... please take your 7.3 bits, update the version to 7.41, and release it until you have this fixed. That is the layman way of getting around the "not being able to downgrade" issue within the system. Your QA department can even do a binary check against 7.3 and ensure that only the version number changed. From the comments above it's been a few weeks and I know you believe customer service is a priority. Anyone else agree?
Same issue here with my Playbar.

Hi everyone, up to here, everyone is now flagged for the beta update. Please go ahead and check for updates, you should have one available.

Issue with Netflix fixed, although there is now a sligh static sound coming from the speakers when nothing is playing through them?
Hi, glad that's fixed, the static sounds shouldn't be related to this at all, but we'd love to take a closer look. I'd advise you give us a call on our support line and work with an agent on it.

Sound of the surrounds drop out for a little while sometimes. It seems totally random.
The diagnostic is showing a good amount of wireless interference that could cause this, but it could be a number of other things. It doesn't look to be related to this issue however, so I'd suggest you give us a call on our support line as well.

It's a good suggestion, this issue started coming up with 7.3 software to begin with, it just gained a lot more traction with the change over to 7.4. We'll be getting a full release out soon which will fix the issue for everyone. In the meantime, we have this beta update we're manually applying.
Same problem here. Please flag me for beta update. Support # 7864561. Having a Samsung TV and problems with Amazon Prime and Plex app. Thank you!

Hi shadds, you're all set as well. Steps to update:

From the Sonos App on Your Phone or Tablet, Choose

Settings > Online Updates


Hello pudgalvin and welcome to the Community. It looks like you're having a slightly different issue than the one in this thread but we'd like to make sure. Would you mind sending over one more diagnostic while trying to play a smart app service to the PLAYBAR? Are the smart apps built into the Samsung? What's the model number of the TV?
Sure, diagnostic 7865032, that was done with the amazon prime app playing a show, no sound. As soon as I exit any of the smart apps, Sonos works fine. This started the same day I updated to the latest version. These app are built in to the tv, it's a Samsung UN60HU8550
Hi thanks for the update I have applied it and all is good so far… was on may out the door for work so will have a good look at it when I get home. Thanks
