A new sw was available today for my M5 - 1.26.45904.

I have installed it, and I have noticed a new setting under BEOLINK/SOUNDSYNC called Airplay multiroom latency - se attached screenshot:

Does anyone know what the purpose of this new setting is?

Same setting available in M3s. I generally have real problems with Airplay over multiroom since speakers do not sync.

This setting may be a solution.

And in Beosound 1 as well. I tried to change the delay and it appear you need to do that on each device individually.

Do you mean you have sync issue when streaming AirPlay 2 to multiple B&O speakers or do you have sync issue when distributing AirPlay over B&O multiroom?

I use the latest every day for many hours and I never noticed any sync issues.

The sync issue is when I use Airplay 2 only. If I airplay to one unit and use multiroom to the others it works perfect.

same over here. AirPlay to one device, multiroom to other devices, no sync problems.

Tried yesterday if with the new option one could get a Balance and other devices in sync. First tests failed though.

Have you been able to fix the problem using this new latency setting?

2.4 vs 5 ghz makes big difference for me.

5 ghz network has major sync issues.

2.4 ghz works like a charm.

I have my products cabled, and I have no problems with Airplay synch.

I have not enabled AirPlay for multiroom in the settings. I have tried, but then I get severe synch problems when using AirPlay the normal way from my ios apps.

Today I have discovered that my BV11 can no longer join a Spotify stream via Spotify Connect to one of my M5s.

So I decided to do some testing of the AirPlay multiroom latency setting on my M5s.

With the settings below on both M5s, I am able to Airplay Spotify to the M5s and the Eclipse and join the BV11 over NL, and all is in perfect sync Smile

That made me curious!

So I had to try here.

Just like before I can easily play via Spotify Connect to my Essence MK2 and join in from my BV Avant 1.gen……which should basicly be the same.

I haven’t noticed any changes there.

 


There is a tv - and there is a BV.

Thanks for the feedback.

I will try to reset my network to see if that will bring Spotify back on the BV11.

Thanks again MM.

I have now made a complete shutdown/startup of my network and B&O devices - and still no Spotify on BV11 via M5.

But when I integrate the Eclipse as the 2nd product on BV11 (M5 is the first), the BV11 can join Spotify on the Eclipse sound center Smile.

The Eclipse sound center does not have the new Airplay latency setting - only the ability to use Airplay over NL, maybe this is causing the problem …

PS: Do you have the Airplay latency setting on your Essence MK2 ?

EDIT: This is so strange. 10 min after my posting, the BV11 could also join Spotify on both M5s - even on the one not integrated with the BV11. Maybe the network reset did do some good anyway Big Smile.
