Cannot control multiple Sonos speakers

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f1738c7c6e8>

Hi :slight_smile:
I have finally got around to fixing some of my earlier issues and one that I am stumped on is that when I have multiple Sonos speakers setup I cannot control the one I target.

Setup below

things

Thing sonos:PLAY3:blah1[udn="blah1", refresh=60, notificationVolume=25]

Thing sonos:PLAY1:blah2[udn="blah2", refresh=60, notificationVolume=25]

items

Group Sonos <player>

Player Sonos_Controller   "Controller"  (Sonos) {channel="sonos:PLAY3:blah1:control"}

Group Sonos2 <player>

Player Sonos_Controller_Kitchen   "Kitchen Controller"  (Sonos2) {channel="sonos:PLAY1:blah2:control"}

Habpanel template

<style>
   .sonosbutton {width: 90%; height: 4em; border: 0; color: white; background-color: transparent;}

Gives the following view.

The controls on the top should control the kitchen speakers and the controls at the bottom should control the other speaker (Lets say dining room) Whats actually happening is that all controls are having an effect on the kitchen speakers

If I press pause (Already playing) and then play on the top controls I get the following entries

events.log

2018-10-27 17:12:08.860 [ome.event.ItemCommandEvent] - Item 'Sonos_Controller_Kitchen' received command PAUSE

2018-10-27 17:12:19.704 [vent.ItemStateChangedEvent] - Sonos_Controller_Kitchen changed from UNDEF to PLAY

Doing the same on the bottom controls yields the following

Am I missing something really obvious here?

ALSO !!

Forgot to add that I CAN control volume, Mute etc. all album art etc. It is just the play, pause, next and previous commands.

The same results as posted above are also present in paper UI

Your missing a lot of the items for each Sonos. Here’s a link which goes into great detail of the items.

Keep in mind; there is a LocalCoordinator that at any given time controls a pair of speakers in a group.

Best, Jay

Thanks for that, I’ll check the link out in the morning.

I omitted a lot of the items as they are not relevant to the issue.

The second of my players is actually a stereo pair controller that I discovered is very particular in terms of control i.e. I need to specifically address “blah2” rather than “blahb” (The second player in the group)

I have a lot pairs (6x) of Play:1 speakers; here’s my items file for one of the pairs.

Thanks Jay,

My issue yesterday appeared to be cache related. I accidentally added all speakers into the same group initially and subsequently changed them to their own groups but the original group was still in effect hence the reason for the controls not controlling the correct speakers.

I restarted openhab this morning and all is good … BUT

You’re absolutely right with your pointer on the LocalCoordinator as this morning it was blahb not blah2 in control.

I’m going to rewrite my solution to set the group coordinator on each relevant screen.
