+1, igmpproxy stopped working for Sonos systems after pfsense update several years ago (I want to say 2.2 -> 2.3, but I don't remember for sure at this point). There's a great guide to getting it working with pimd at https://forum.netgate.com/topic/139218/sonos-speakers-and-applications-on-different-subnets-vlan-s.
