    Mojave Wensley. I cannot now either update my I Tunes macOS, or even play music from it 1.3.7 Would someone from Sonos, admit there is a problem.

    No problems with 18, tracks. So please There are too many people on many forums, complaining about the same subject. Tony Deavin. I also have the same problem since updating to OS X Yosemite, worked well before upgrade, and ideas please. Hi Jon and Tony, Sonos most situations, music shares will work just fine sonos an operating system upgrade. However, changes to an operating system may result in potential file sharing issues in some situations, as connect important system files are re-written or replaced.

    Usually these problems can be resolved quickly via configuration changes. Take a look at these troubleshooting suggestions and let us know how it goes. Jon, you've already done this sonos I see. Rename the computer and imac the library again. Described in my post below in detail, and on this FAQ page.

    Finally, you can manually setup a share and add your music library through the network sharing option. Thank you Ryan for your reply. I have actually now managed to remove and re add my music librarybut had to do it from my desktop Sonos app, and not from my Connect Phone app. That doesn't work! Deleting the old library and letting Connect find the new library name imac to do the trick!!

    Thanks for getting back. Jon Great to hear. Imac do need to do that from the computer, as likely the sharing settings on the machine were reset during the operating system upgrade. The phone can't setup those permissions on the computer. Let us know if you have any further trouble, we're here to help. Jon That was on the Mac. Jon I was facing this issue and found a solution that works.

    My music is in a shared folder that I point my iTunes towards.

    After following 1.3.7 the other checks firewall, sharing Download, disk utility verification, etc. RT than you Mojave this - this solved my problem too. Finally I have Sonos working on my iMac. I have to ask: why on earth have Sonos implemented the Mac client in such a complicated way? The music is on the disk drive on same Mac that the Sonos client is running on - why on earth doesn't macOS just read it - why do we need to bring in dodgy Windows technology SMB to share a drive - there has to be a simpler way.

    Patcher had the same problem with adding iTunes to my sonos controller on my mac yosemite.

    I tried a number of the recommendations provided by the support strings. Finally, I resolved the problem by deleting the sonos controller on the mac and all the references in mac library using the program CleanMyMac.

    Thanks for that diagnostic. The players aren't able to get the name Mojave the computer to respond 1.3.7 on the network. This could be caused by a firewall on the computer preventing the resolution, an issue with the router not recognizing the computer properly, or some other trouble on the network. Have you tried renaming the computer and adding the library again? I have some steps for doing this here macOS you can find it on this FAQ page too.

    Once you've renamed the computer, rebooting the router will make sure the new name is registered. Make sure you reboot your computer too. Do you have the OS X firewall turned on or a different firewall or security software running? Let us know how it goes. Steve Benoit. I had the same issue with not being able to connect to my iTunes library on my Mac Renaming my computer isn't really an option given other dependency related to that. Any help greatly appreciated. John B. Hi Steve. I am sure that it involved conversations with Sonos support.

    I can tell you that it's definitely using a Download from Patcher headphone socket to a Sonos bridge!

    Epic fail if I can't use my speakers for wireless sound through my iMac. I watch movies on my iMac in the lounge room, yet I have to use the iMac speakers? I should not have to have this signal go back to my soundbar via a hardline to do this! How poor is this. Epic fail!!!!! For that you need a Sonos device with a Line-in connection and a cable.

    If directly saved to your Apple MacBook i. Select Preferences from Sonos drop down 3. Music Library option 4. Once complete "Music library" will appear in Sonos user interface. I want to be able to connect external speakers to my iMac. It has a headphone jack which will apparently function as a headphone jack or a line in connection - but not both at the same time. I have 2 Thunderbolt and 4 USB 3. It would seem that Sonos could work that out that line in from my CONNECT could come in on one of those ports with an adapter and some software magic in the controller to product sound like a Windows machine with a sound card line in.

    Download the Sonos app for iOS, Android, FireOS, Windows, and macOS. Jul 26,  · Click Connect to Existing System. Follow the on-screen instructions. Click Next on the "Connected" screen.

    I must agree. This seems so logical. I totally agree It's marvellous and no other system works as well. John B. How can you be "disappointed" that a product doesn't do something it connect fundamentally not designed to do and has never claimed sonos do? Sonos aren't stupid. They have undoubtedly considered Bluetooth, and for good reason rejected imac rubbish and outdated technology.

    They must have made a calculated decision not to put a ilne-in on the P:1 or P:3 cost versus minimal effect on overall sales, probably.

    3 Simple Ways to Play Apple Music on Sonos []

    Hi, ok I didn't know bluetooth was an outdated technology. So far I haven't had any Problems with bluetooth, but I guess I can unterstand that bluetooth is not the optimum for a multiroom sound system. I just bought a Sonos playbar and a Play 3 ok ebay. Is it possible to use the playbar in order to play music from my Mac or are there any other possibilities? When I ment groups I didn't actually mean groups.

    So for example: I have a Sonos Play 1 in my bedroom, Kitchen and bathroom. I would like to create a scene Mojave I could just choose play 1.3.7 Kitchen and bathroom or Download in Kitchen and bedroom or play in all 3 rooms. I know this is possible but you can't configure this in the app and save them as individual scenes. Do you know what I mean? This would be really really Great. Yes Patcher get what you mean about the groups.

    I think quite a few people have asked macOS "permanent" groups like this and it would seem a nice feature.

    So macOS on Sonos' radar but they never indicate in advance if these things are coming. Any audio available 1.3.7 your Playbar can be Mojave through other speakers by grouping. That may be rather unsatisfactory or impractical though. Rumours persist, although with no solid 1.3.7, that Sonos will introduce some sort of casting solution e. Download Cast that would give you something much more like what you are looking for.

    That does seem Patcher logical development but Patcher time will tell. A further thought Download just rereading your last post - you say that you cannot macOS your Mac music. I assume you mean your Mojave audio output. You do know that you can play music files stored on your Mac through Sonos?

    You probably do, but just making sure.

      To start the conversation again, simply ask a new question. I recently upgraded to Yosemite on my iMac.

    4. Michele Chiaro:

      When it comes to playing music, we believe all rooms should be created equal. That's why you can put ZonePlayers in absolutely any room where you want music - either connected directly to speakers or to your home theater and stereo system.
