My Question or Issue

 I have 2 Sonos Play 3s and a Sonos Playbar. Both Android controllers show all 3, but my Linux app only shows the 2 Sonos 3s. I recently wiped the computer and installed the newest Ubuntu version, requiring a total reinstall of Spotify, and it still only shows the Sonos Play 3s. I found a thread that started in 2012 listing this same problem on the Windows apps. Has anyone found a resolutions?
