  1. Hi, Wondering if it is possible. I got system with EA-3, 7 sonos amps, os is 3.11. Tried to make doorbell announcement working, got it partly going. It plays announcement on selected ( connected to EA-3 ) amps, but I can't make it going back to track it was playing before announcement. If it was only 1 or 2 options (favorites stations) I think I can work out with variables, but it can be anything, client got Spotify, Apple music, Etc. I tried Snapshot driver, but it reset volume level only. Is it possible in general to make it working? Thanks.
  2. Hi, Got some question. Is it possible to make media scene with Sonos devices? connect few sonos amps in one group with C4 programming? Control Volume, select source? Like with reg C4 Media scene setup? OS 3.1.1 Thanks.
  3. Hello Control4 Comrades! Recently, I added Amazon music as a service to Sonos and deleted Spotify. My Sonos system is only used for Control4 and nothing else, so I assumed it would be seamless, considering this is a somewhat old but effective multi-thousand dollar system. Now, when I open Sonos on one of my touchscreen wall-mounted pads, all I have listed under music services is Tune-in, something I didn't even have in the first place. Can anyone help me? Thanks! Sincerely, Alexander Szeremeta P.S My operating system is 2.8.2, and if I start playin
  4. I want to get the doorbell and other announcements to play thru my sonos system. i have wireless speakers and its much more flexible than the zones i have thru my C4. how can this be done?
  5. Seems to apply to the attitude towards Control4 obsolescence as well. https://www.wired.co.uk/article/sonos-outrage-legacy-speakers
  6. Hi All, im having trouble figuring out the logic to play a doorbell announcement through sonos when the DS2 is active. I have 3 play bars and a few connect amps. Id also like to display the video on the tv where the EA3 is located. Many help would be much appreciated.
  7. Hi there. Hopefully this will be something someone has tried and can tell me if it works. I have a client who has 12 zones of audio all via Sonos Connect Amps. Trouble is he really just wants to use Airplay for all his musical needs. I would like to know how clever C4 is when it comes to streaming through Sonos.. I believe it recently got a bit cleverer in that we now have some control over the line-in so I'm hoping that will extend to what I need to do. If I were to put in an EA3 / EA5 / however many streams via however many processors, then connect the audio outs of those to some random
  8. Hi, all. In OS2, my Sonos Favorites (or in newer Sonos parlance, items added to "My Sonos") would appear under Favorites in the Control4 listen area. I became heavily dependent on this to choose specific Apple Music or Spotify playlists, Apple Music Stations, TuneIn stations, etc. In fact, it became my main way of choosing listening sources. In OS3, the Sonos Favorites are nowhere to be found. Choosing "Favorites" under the Listen menu actually crashes my iOS and T3 apps. So, my question for all is, can I get back my Sonos Favorites?
  9. Have a client who wants two cordless speakers out at his pool and have it intergrated with the rest of the zones in the house. We went with heos wifi speakers that work great for controlling through C4 but I'm unable to add rooms to the music stream. C4 support said the reason is because I'm using the heos media player and not C4 player in that zone. I've tried adding heos player drivers to other rooms to try and get it to link that way but with no success. Is there any other options I have. Was thinking going the Sonos route but feel I'd run into the same issue.
  10. I had a bunch of sonos amps, sonos subs & soundbars, but one thing I couldn't do was output the audio from the main TV into other speakers, and my installer said I was running out of room in the rack when I upgraded my theater with more amps/dvd player etc. So I got the Triad 8 channel amp & 8 channel matrix. but it's so hard to use, it's multiple steps and not even as close to be as easy as sonos app in terms of picking music grouping rooms, adjusting volumes etc. :(. Maybe I'm doing it wrong and I'd love to make it easier. I still have my Den with a sonos soundbar &
  11. on my in wall touch panel I can select and control music around my house to be played on our different sonos speakers, is there any way in which I can have any control of sound on my speakers with the listen button on the system remotes? Thanks
  12. Hey All. About the install: I've installed an EA-3, 6x6 4K Control4 Matrix, and an Episode Amp in a client's home. He has two outside TVs, side by side, with a separate DirecTV box for each TV, as well as 2 KEF speakers per TV. There is also a Sonos in the zone. In Composer, I've broken down the area into independent rooms, per TV. Ideally, both zones will be able to play Sonos as the default audio zone, concurrently. There are no issues with Video showing up where it is supposed to, only audio. The "right tv" room works as designed, and has no issue switching audio or video.
  13. Hi all, i'm new to the forums and looking for some advice on the best audio solution for my C4 system. About 3 years ago i had a c4 system installed including an 8x8 HD matrix combined with a KNX lighting system, door locks and integrated heatmiser heating controls. At the time of installation i also had speaker cables installed in every room but wasn't quite ready to pull out the additional cost for the system at the time. I'm now ready but since then amazon echo has arrived! Or should i go with sonos and install a connect amp for each zone and install in ceiling speakers? O
  14. Just received this from Sonos officially ending the third party integration via non endorsed drivers. Read correctly, this means any systems that haven’t been updated with endorsed drivers are going to stop working I assume. ” Unsupported UPnP Sonos Integrations At the end of January, we have a regular Sonos software update to bring new features (like Sonos App enhancements based on feedback) and to implement minor bug fixes. This update also includes sm
  15. Like many, I have had Sonos Connects in my system for many years. I originally used Sonos with the EV drivers to get Pandora, iHeartRadio and MLB Game Day audio. With Game Day audio no longer working, I have no reason to keep the EV drivers and with native support for Pandora and IHR now I'm not sure why I would want to keep Sonos at all. I do not use the Sonos ap (and would not use it except to set a favorite), so losing the ability to throw a Sonos stream from Sonos to C4 is no big deal. I have one Connect in my rack room with the output fed to an audio matrix. The other is in
  16. Selling 2 used SONOS CONNECT AMPS. Perfect working order, minor blemishes but they look great. Best Offer.
  17. Please be advised that it seems the latest Sonos update (as of November 21st) WILL break ALL integration using the old deprecated driver, forcing you to move to the new Endorsed driver (with all it's limitations)
  18. I'm at wits end, tried everything I know. I have a TV using a connect amp, auto-playing whenever the TV generates audio in my Kitchen. This arrangement worked for a very long time. Without changing anything, other than perhaps a driver auto upgrade, whenever the BASEMENT changes state, say pressing the control4 button, the audio in the kitchen pauses. I can immediately restart the audio from any Sonos app. I have looked everywhere I can to find a link between the two rooms. I'm using the endorsed Sonos driver (58). The Sonos players players are communicating via the Sonosnet. I have re
  19. I've been using Sonos without any issues in my house for over a year. Just recently had our system updated to 2.9 and now we have a Sonos issue. When I look in Composer HE, and the C4 IOS app I see some error messages. On the app when I go to Room > Listen > Favorites what I see on the screen there is "Error with Setup." In Composer HE when I go to Monitoring > Favorites and click on a room I get "Error with Setup." However if I go to the Sonos App on my desktop and go to Favorites I see all of my favorites as I've previously saved them. Then also if I go through
  20. I apologetically bring this topic up, as I know there has been much Sonos discussion. For audio only, what is the better solution: Option S: 4 x Sonos Connect:Amps > 4 stereo rooms 2 x Sonos Connects > 2 x AVRs > 2 tv rooms -or- Option C: 1 x Sonos Connect > Control4 16 zone audio matrix > Control4 4 zone amp & 2 AVRs > 4 stereo rooms & 2 tv rooms I have never used Sonos. But my friends who use it say the best part is one app and total control of their home audio using any service. Which is my goal, to avoid having to switch apps to add rooms, ch
  21. I have a motion sensor outside at my front door and I'd simply like for the sonos in my bedroom and the sonos in my kitchen to play an announcements...but for the announcement to be synchronized. I'm having issues getting this to work...in fact, only the bedroom plays the announcement at the moment. FYI - I have a variable "BeQuite" that is true after 8:00pm and turns false at 8:00am so I can adjust the volume of the announcements. Any help is appreciated Also...not to take this thread into a different direction, the motion sensor executes the above programming when i
  22. I'm having a strange problem with the Auto Power Room feature on my Sonos Connect System with Control4 and Receiver. The behavior is reliable, but not what I expect. When I start playing a Sonos stream using my Sonos App, the appropriate room will Auto Power on. However, when I try to group another room using the app, the grouped rooms do not Auto Power on. This is a problem since I want people to be able to use the Sonos App to control selections, grouping, and volume instead of having to reach for a C4 remote. In addition, I have a receiver on one of the Sonos Connects that n
  23. I have a "Custom Buttons" setup in Navigator where I simply want to click "Daytime Fun" and have the same Pandora stream play in the Kitchen and in the Master Bedroom. The Bedroom is a Sonos Playbar and the Kitchen is a Play:3 The ability to add the Master Playbar to the Kitchen Session doesn't seem to work. What am I doing wrong?
  24. Hi, since sonos did huge improvement and stopped working with C4 properly we want to move to Fusion. I wanted to get some feedback. 1. how does it work with music services (spotify, amazone, google, etc.) 2. is user interface friendly? Thanks.
  25. Hi All, I have c4 with speakers throughout my home but have 1 room with sonos (integrated into my C4) only. When I play music in the room with a sonos 5 speaker, I try to "add" rooms but cannot. I thought i would be able to play the same music throughout my home even with the sonos they way I did with my other sources. Any thoughts on how to do this? Is it even able? Thanks in advance.
