Earlier this year I observed a problem on my Android controller. When I walk from my house to my outbuilding (which has it's own wired WIFI Access Point, same SSID) my phone smoothly transitions to the new AP and the internet connection is unaffected. However in BluOS the players connected to the AP I've just departed disappear from my player drawer. After a few minutes this resolves itself and all reappear and are controllable again. This is totally repeatable and happens in both directions, so if you're somewhat in between and the phone switches back and forth between AP's you lose contact with all players.
After some diagnosis I tied this down to only occurring on my fairly new Nokia 7.1 phone (so-called "AndroidOne", running latest Android 9 Pie OS). Windows laptops did not do it, nor did my old Sony phone on Android6, or the MotoG4+ on Android7.
I've recently changed my partner's MotoG4+ to a Nokia 5.1, once again AndroidOne and running the latest OS which is Android9 Pie. This phone does the same thing as my Nokia7.1, making it more or less useless for controlling BluOS.
Are there any other users with phones running Android9 who are experiencing anything like this?
After I narrowed the problem down to this, my support ticket (124782) was 'passed along to QA' and I have not heard anything about it since. It would be nice to know whether the problem has been reproduced and identified. If it has not then I guess it is unlikely to be resolved any time soon.
