System has a mind of it's own after running fine for months
My system consists of 6 devices, four are ST-30’s and two are remotes.
The system has gone crazy right out of nowhere after months of working very well. I have rebooted, re-installed apps, restarted routers, and done everything as per the usual suggestions here. All updates are current and newest versions of apps installed. My controllers are an iPhone 6 on wifi, laptop on wifi and a desktop on Ethernet.
One by one, in no particular order, every single device went offline over a period of about a week and I had to go through the setup process on each. Now the devices are randomly going offline or “can’t find speaker” causing me to have to setup that particular one again. When I get the reconnected the signal strength is usually good or excellent. Even my ST-30 that is connected via ethernet went down. Twice in the last week I have had speakers turn themselves on and start playing. When this happened it was to the last music or station I was listening to on that speaker.
A new problem has surfaced as well, this pertains to whichever speaker is my “master”, including the one I have hardwired. What is happening here is when using “play all”, the master speaker will always be on at about 30% volume or so regardless of volume slider settings. I cannot turn the volume on the “master” all the way down, the slider moves down but the volume remains at about a 30% level. I can however turn it up louder though. As a side note, when this happens the sound is degraded on the master, like a cheesy transistor radio, and normally any other linked in the play all are working as they should. This seems to be just the master doing this.
Lastly, the only thing that I am aware of a change was a windows 10 update which has basically rendered my laptop useless again, so deleted the Bose app, cleaned out the registry, download the Bose software and re-installed. Controller software is working again but sporadically as above.
I will keep experimenting to get my system working again and post anything I can come up with. Any thoughts are appreciated!
