Sonos Drivers

Right now it's the only Sonos device on the network - i got it to experiment / evaluate, before jumping in and getting a load more.

It's currently in the disconnected state, and can be controlled by my iPhone Sonos app and the CQC Zone Player.

Do you know of anything that you know uses the UPnP media renderer interface? Does Windows have a generic UPnP media renderer control point? If you bring up the Windows browser it shows media devices. Does it show the Sonos? It may only show it as a DLNA media repository, not a renderer though.

I’ve had to restart the Sonos, so all is behaving again now.

Over the weekend I’ll sort something out on Windows to use as a reference. I think JRiver can be set up to render to the Sonos, but not tried it. Maybe VLC? I’m sure I can find something.

It currently shows in the Windows browser, but I didn’t look until I’d restarted the Sonos.

If it was the IP changing under CQC, why would this affect only the one CQC type of device driver though?

I'm pretty certain the IP addresses are the same as when I initially installed.  I'll monitor it carefully (have made a note of IP addresses this time to be sure nothing strange is happening with IPs on the router, even with the MAC binding)

On your route, using the MAC address of each Sonos you can do a static DHCP reservation to assign a specific IP address. Just make certain that the address you assign is outside of the range of DHCP addresses that the router assigns to devices.

Yeh, definitely make sure your router's available dynamic range is configured not to overlap any statics.

I currently run 192.168.1.2-220 as dynamically assigned addresses. 221-254 are excluded from the DHCP pool.

The Sonos has been running on 192.168.1.239

I forceably changed the IP of the Sonos earlier, to see if the CQC driver coped. It did.

I’ll do some further analysis of my LAN infrastructure over the weekend, as well as looking at playing with another uPnP client to see if it suffers from occasional loss of comms too

If you have a Win7 system and you really want to diagnose UPnP problems, Intel's UPnP tools are a really good way to do it, though you have to learn a bit about them. I don't think they work on anything beyond Win7 though, or didn't the last time I looked.

I can dust off a VM image with Win7 I’m sure. I’ll take a look.

You can find some discussion about them here on the forum. If you search for Intel AND UPnP that should find it.
