As per my email:
First, start sonospy - from a terminal window, navigate to the sonospy directory eg, if it's in a folder in your user folder, type
Then start sonospy from root, type
Enter your password if prompted.
Install the plugin and check it is enabled from the plugin menu.
Configure the plugin - enter the ip address Of the pc running sonospy, and the default port 50101
Type the name of one of your zones in the reference zone player
Switch polling off to start with - there is an issue with threading at present which is eating resources. Save settings.
Next, create new devices for each zone player in indigo.
Create a new device. Change the name to the zone player name, then in the type, select "plugin", select "sonos" for the plugin, and select "zone player" for the model.
You have a zone created in indigo.
Now create a new action group. Name it "play". In the type drop down select plugin; in the plugin drop down select sonos; in the action drop down select play; in the device drop down select a zone player.
Execute the action group and the selected zone should play and pause (if it has a queue).
Repeate for other controls, including line in and radio. Please note, you will need to import the radio list first from the plugin configuration.
Shout in the thead if you need more help,mas it will be help for others too. No question is a silly one.
There is more coming, and you can get track information into variables too, but start with the basics,
Hope that helps
