Lost TTS again today
« on: October 08, 2015, 11:31:08 am »
Anyone else experiencing issues with TTS? My regular morning weather announcement played fine at around 7:30 AM today. The I got a notice that Sonos needs to be updated to new version which I did. Now, no TTS at all. Checked IP addresses and nothing changed in scenes but can not control Sonos anymore or play TTS. Anyone else seeing issues?

5.5 controller 5.5 devices
Sonos player works and responds in Vera but no TTS response.
Vera says the scene is successful but there is no sound.
It does not interrupt sonos play back. It says the the scene was a success but nothing is happening.

Problem began about 7:00am EDST today.  It started before I installed the Sonos update.

Sonos player works and responds in Vera but no Google TTS response.  Scenes with TTS appear to run without error.  Microsoft TTS works correctly.

Log extract follows:

08   10/08/15 23:44:27.040   JobHandler_LuaUPnP::HandleActionRequest device: 144 service: urn:micasaverde-com:serviceId:Sonos1 action: Say <0x74038520>

02   10/08/15 23:44:27.656   luup_log:144: Sonos: warning: Google TTS: failed! <0x74038520>

It appears Google made a change today that has broken the Sonos App's Google TTS function.

I've temporarily switched to Microsoft TTS, but miss the woman's voice used by Google TTS.

Same issue.  Did upgrade Sonos, but think it was happening before that.

Oups, my test was with Microsoft TTS yesterday. But new test this morning and it still works with Microsoft and Google TTS. So it is not a problem with Google TTS.

Have you installed plugin v1.4 ?

Try to reboot jour Sonos devices. It helped for me one time after a power problem.

Or that's due to new version 5.5 but it would make no real sense that Microsoft TTS works and not Google.

VeraEdge - UI7 (1.7.11)
Sonos App - 1.4

Sonos Play 1's (3) - Version 5.5
Sonos Controller - Version 5.5

All 3 Sonos Play 1's have been rebooted.

Google TTS fails.  Microsoft TTS works.

Problem started on 10/8/2015 at approximately 7:00am EDST before upgrading the Sonos Play 1's to Version 5.5.  (Upgrading to 5.5 did not cause / fix the problem)

Have tried changing the Google TTS URL to http://translate.google.co.uk instead of http://translate.google.com.  No help -- Google TTS still won't speak.  :-(

As I am now using Microsoft TTS I will try to finish the upgrade and see what happens with Google TTS.

Mine google tts also failed two days ago. On troubleshooting, I found google is blocking ip with notice of unusual traffic from ip. This is after recent version where client=Vera was added in translate url. I switched to microsoft tts for time being. I am not sure what is the workaround except renewing public IP address by recycling router or modem.

I tested again just now and it failed !
So the problem is not the firmware and not the plugin but certainly something new from Google again.
