My Sonos device control does not seem to work anymore, if the device is in a Sonos group.
If I move the Sonos device out of a group (in the Sonos app), so it is by itself, I can control volume/play/pause/etc via HE. But if that device is in a Sonos "group" it will not respond to HE, and always shows "playing" even if the group is paused. This is new, it use to work fine.
I have been controlling the "group" by sending play/pause to one device (kitchen), but now it does not work unless 'kitchen' is alone. If I send a "speak" command it will kick the unit out of the group to speak.
Log files show the same results. When stand alone it reports playing/paused/volume. As soon as I add it to a group it changes to playing (even if the track is paused), and stays 'playing' with no updates on volume, track changes, or pausing.
I have tested the actions on multiple Sonos units and they all act the same.
I have already tried remove the Sonos app and reinstalling, no effect.
Anyone else having the issue, is there a fix?
