If you have not already, we suggest setting your Plex username to something else rather than email which is displayed on your posts in forum. You can change the username at https://app.plex.tv/desktop#!/account

Sonos and users

telepaiement@outlook.frtelepaiement@outlook.fr Posts: 2Validating, Plex Pass Plex Pass


I have correctly linked my Sonos Controler to Plex and followed what is written here :

Well, now, when I try to browse Plex from Sonos, I have this message after a few seconds :
FR Unable to contact the Plex Media Server. Please check your server settings at https://plex.tv and make sure that Remote Access is enabled.

So, YES, the remote access has been enabled.

But I have declared users on Plex (to filter the movies my young daughter could access to). Could it be why I have this issue ? There is nowhere to set a default user in Plex for Sonos...

Many thanks for your help !

    And what's the solution ?
    I have the same problem.
    I'v asked to Sonos Support and they say ... contact Plex Support !
