Soundtouch 300 and SA-5 Cannot stream from iTunes Mac — Errors 4202 + 1036 +1046
I can’t find any information or trouble shooting about a new issue I’m having. I can’t play music from my Mac iTunes library through my Bose speakers. I have trouble reading the list — frequently I get error 1036, then if I get it to play anything, I keep getting error 4202, after about 10-20 seconds of playback. Then if I try to play again, I get more 1036 and 1046 errors. I get the exact same behavior on my phone and on the SoundTouch app on the mac.
I have a SoundTouch 300 with rears and AM sub, and also an SA-5. I am able to use them both with bluetooth from my iphone. I am able to use the ST300 with toslink out from my TV.
I removed and re-installed all the Soundtouch apps.
I removed re-started and re-added the speakers.
( I used different speaker names, just in case. )
The speakers appear to connect to Wi Fi successfully, by the lights.
I restarted my router.
I restarted my computer.
I removed and re-added my iTunes library.
I double-checked the iTunes advanced share xml.
I removed my anti-virus and anti-malware apps.
I don’t know what is wrong or what to do next. This is a hugely frustrating issue; I want to listen to music on my patio and bluetooth is too far away. Streaming from my mac is the only/best way to do this (at least until we get airplay 2) and it seems well and truly broken.
PS. When the heck are we going to get Airplay 2? I bought my Bose gear specifically after that announcement in Nov. of 2017 because that feature was critical for me. Here we are 16 months later and crickets. That is appalling, and it is making me HUGELY regret buying anything from Bose. What a disaster. [sigh] If I could return it all I would do it in a heartbeat.
PPS. This is on top of the stupid wi-fi interference bug that makes my AM sub flutter horribly and bottom out whenever I use it wirelessly -- which is of course the key selling point of it! I have to use it directly connected to the ST300 in order to avoid the horrid sounds, which again are apparent;y caused by wireless interference. Infuriating.
