Bose SA-5 Listed as LAN Bose SoundTouch No Notification (Can't change in SmartThings)

Hi All,

I just purchased a Bose SA-5 Amp to plug into integrated house speakers and stream music, etc and control with SmartThings and WebCore, etc.


I want to Stream a Notification from AWS S3 storage bucket to it. Now, I can do that with my Bose Sound Touch 10 but it doesn't work with the SA-5 - known because of the support page.


I am suspecting it's doing this because the Device Handler that it's using won't enable notifications.



Where as the ST 10 has a different DTH listed:




I tried to just switch the DTH on the SA-5 from "LAN Bose SoundTouch No Notification" to "LAN Bose SoundTouch".


I then click save and it goes back to the default DTH with "LAN Bose SoundTouch No Notification".


However, I can change it to a completely unrelated DH and it sticks?!


Why can't I change it to my choosing? I thought I had flexibility here? Aren't these DTH's published in GitHub for community changes? Why not if they aren't?


Also, why doesn't the SA-5 support Notifications in SmartThings?


Thanks in advance,
