Sonos - "Roon lost control of audio device"

It used to work. Seems like this is new with 1.6. Can play neither local or Tidal files. Play:5 speaker works fine with Spotify and in the Sonos system

Sonos Play:5 1 speaker on Sonos net
Sonos boost ethernet connected to garden variety ATT uVerse modem/router

Roon core on i7 HP laptop, ethernet over power to Node 2. That is working fine too.

Re-boot of Sonos doesn’t cure the problem. I have 2 devices that roon can see, 3 if you count the iPad remote. No grouped players


Hello @JChrisG,

Thanks for contacting us regarding this issue, I have a few questions starting off:

  • How is your Roon Core connected to the network?
  • What is the model/manufacturer of any other networking gear here?
  • Does the same issue occur if you connect your Core directly to the router via Ethernet?
  • Have you tried rebooting your Core, Networking Gear and Sonos devices yet?
  • Have you made any changes to your network recently or performed any firmware upgrades?
  • What happens if you connect your Sonos play5 via Ethernet to the router, does that change anything?


Rebooting everything including networking gear seemed to do the trick. Thank you.
