Latest Sonos update breaks driver
The latest Sonos firmware update breaks our driver. There appears to be something in the device properties UPnP service description that the Windows UPnP engine doesn't handle. So presumably they don't even bother testing these things on Windows. There is nothing we can do about this if Sonos doesn't fix it.

If they can't be bothered to do so, the other services work correctly, so we could just remove support for the functionality supported by the device properties service. That's not a huge amount but it includes:

  • Getting information such as the assigned name, if it's a bridge, the API and MAC, software version, and the current icon indicator.
  • Controlling the front LED off/on state
Honestly, it may be time for everyone to start looking beyond Sonos in terms of something to integrate with home automation systems. Their UPnP support will probably not go on indefinitely. And their new API is cloud based, so no control if the internet is down and of course they see everything you do. And it's more limited as well. That's considerably less than optimal.

We are open to suggestions for replacements.
