SoundTouch 10 Spearkers Disconnection
We have 4 SoundTouch-10 speakers connected via Bluetooth, one Main speaker to the iPad and the other 3 speakers to the Main speaker. The Main speaker is about 2 feet from the iPad. Pandora does not support playing to multiple speakers at the same time. And, the Pandora service we have (no commercial paid version) allows only Bluetooth connection, only via tablet or smart phone, no computers allowed, and SoundTouch app does not support this service. Ugh.
The speakers support the above Bluetooth networking connection as a standard feature. But each morning, sometimes in the middle of playing music, we have to do a dance to beg the system to turn back on. There are so many pieces to the puzzle that fail, that we just have to start trying things, starting with these dance steps:
1. Reconnect Main speaker to iPad via settings > Bluetooth > select Main speaker. This usually works but have on occasion re-paired the two because nothing else was working.
2. Open Pandora app and click play. Music usually starts, but always to just 1 of the 4 speakers, the Main speaker.
3. Open SoundTouch app and reconnect the other 3 speakers. Getting to that area of the app seems to be allusive at times, not sure why. Frequently they are not functioning so we restart the app and sometimes restart the iPad, to shake loose whatever baggage is clogging the connection.
Is there a way to reliably connect once and be done with this, no daily dance to reconnect 3 apps to 4 speakers?
