Lightbulb Any interest in a visualizer for home theatre

Any interest in a visualizer for home theatre’s similar to what would normally be on any other media players on a pc. E.g., win media player, power DVD and so on?
More for individuals who are tied into a home Theater and TV as apposed to just a pc monitor?

Personally, no. My TV will never be on when I'm listening to music, and when I somtimes listen to talk shows with the TV on, the TV is tuned to muted sports.

Default Different inputs?

If you are using your TV as a monitor and for normal TV, as I do then the TV and the computer should be on different inputs if you are using a receiver or even just the inputs on the back of the TV?
What I’m getting at is if your watching a TV show you should still be able to listen to the SONOS, but if you have your TV still as a monitor then if it's on why not have the option of a visualizer?

Because personally I hate visualizers, and since Sonos has limited resources, I would prefer them to concentrate their efforts in other areas. YMMV.

Just my opinion, but SONOS in the last year or so has taken off and should have a bit more resources than what you might think.
FWIW

But I still would not want them to waste resources on something I will never use. Just one man's vote.

While that may be, they are still resources better utilized for more pressing (and audio specific) SONOS improvements.

I do not see a visualizer for my TV as being anywhere near the top 10 (or even top 30) of 'sound ideas'. I'd rank it just above my request that SONOS could allow me to control my dishwasher :-)

Count me as a -1

Default Add visualization to sonos desktop application

I play sonos all the time but my tv is hooked up to the desktop and i miss the fact that i can not have visualization on the big screen ( as compared to playing it via iTunes)
