  • Fredy Koller Did you try a reboot from the remote? Is NEEO Link disabled (can be found in the app Menü)?

    If both doesn't help, try to repair the remote by pressing the Brains Top for one second and keep the remote active until the Brain blinking stops (shake it around a bit).

    If this doesn't help, try reboot the Brain and the Remote at the same time.

    If this also doesn't help, mention me (type an @ followed by my name) and we can try something different.

    For Troubleshooting and checking i will pull in Jeff Ingrid so they can check the Logfiles and maybe provide additional Informations about the Issue or Troubleshooting steps.

  • Hi,  Fredy Koller. Thank you for reaching out to us and thanks,   Markus Mahr for helping. Do you have the same experience when adding and playing other favorites?

    Could you also try to add your Sonos once more to your NEEO app and see if there is any difference in controlling your Instant Favorites with your NEEO Remote? Which actual source(s) do you use for your Instant Favorites (Sonos NAS, Spotify,..)?

    At the moment it is not possible to add more than 4 favorites. You can open a new thread in the Idea Voting section for this that other users can see and vote. If this is very high requested, we will definitely discuss that. 🙂

  • hi Ingrid and Markus Mahr .Thanks to both for your help. Markus Mahr : all of your steps done, unfortunatly it doesn't solve the problem. Ingrid : yes, same experience with other favorites. Tryed to add Sonos once again => no success. I use TuneIn as the source for my radio-stations.

    • Hi,  Fredy Koller. Which firmware are you running on your Sonos?

      The App on Mobile is working correct.

      Do I understand correctly that your Sonos app AND the NEEO app are working as expected? 


      Could you also try to rearrange the Instant Favorites once and add a different one, to see if it's exactly the same behavior!?

      Are you able to play all radio stations within "My Sonos"?

      You could also try to delete your Sonos, then reboot your NEEO Brain, and readded your SONOS again.

    • hi Ingrid. Sonos-firmware: Sonos-Connect, Vers. 9.3 (Build 47259120).

      Yes, correct, the Sonos-App AND the NEEO app are working fine. Only the Neeo-remote doesn't work correct.

      I will try your suggestions and come back with answers soon.

    • Fredy Koller I'm sorry for my late response. So, do I understand correctly that this is the same behavior with all sources and not only related to Tuneln and radio stations? I'll forward this to the developers and come back to you as soon as possible. I wish you a Happy New Year!

    • Fredy Koller Thanks for coming back to me and I'm sorry to hear about the connection issues. Since your NEEO Remote has some connection issues with the NEEO Brain, I like further investigate this issue first.

      Where you able to pair it again by pressing "Try Again". Did you also try to restart your NEEO Brain (by unplugging the power cable and plug it back in)? Further, can you please confirm that you use the original power cable and power adapter and that you have also installed the ferrite clamps

      Which router model are you using? Is your router up do date? Please make sure that DHCP is enabled in your router settings. 
      Did you set for security options WPA/WPA2 encryption? Did you set your 2.4Ghz frequency bandwidth automatically or on 802.11 b, g? Did you set a static or dynamic IP address? Can you also check if "Prioritize NEEO link" is enabled or disabled? (NEEO app => Settings => NEEO Remote)

    • Fredy Koller Thanks for all the information.

      If the NEEO Remote is still not connected to your NEEO Brain, please turn it off. Then press and keep pressing the hard buttons POWER and BACK on the NEEO Remote, this will bring you back to the setup screens of the NEEO Remote. Then, please reboot your router once. When it's back online, please re-pair your NEEO Remote.

      Just for testing, would it be possible trying to set a static IP? (channel 1, 6 or 11)
