I got an Apple TV 4k and want the sound to go to the Node 2i permanently via Airplay2.
Unfortunately this does not happen. Whenever the Apple TV goes to sleep, it defaults the sound setting back to HDMI in Apple TV. I have to then go to the settings to manually set it back to the Node 2i
Also, it only transmits the Movie sound, but not the Apple TV system sounds (such as navigating through the icons, ...) when using Airplay. (using Bluetooth instead of Airplay to connect the Apple TV to the Node 2i doesn't work because the sound volume is by far too low in Bluetooth mode)
Finally, when I chose to play music with the Node 2i, suddenly Apple TV decides to switch from Airplay back to HDMI sound output. There is no option in the Bluesound app to switch back the Apple TV as primary audio source after listening to music. In fact, Apple TV doesn't show at all in the app's list of sources even when it is connected using Airplay.
What I need is for Apple TV to permanently stay set to Airplay audio output, or to have a button in the Bluesound app to set the source to Apple TV. I want to avoid having to go into the Apple TV settings all the time to switch the Audio output back to the Node 2i.
Does anyone have a solution to these issues?
