    Hi Daniel

    Thanks for the feedback and sorry for the delay in getting back to you. Based on our investigation here, we suspect this is only affecting the Player when it is in upgrade mode - I am escalating this issue to our support crew and they can help further...

    Hello Tony

    thanks for your reply. 

    I think this issue is not specific to the player‘s upgrade mode. 

    When I now change my 5GHZ channel to one of the upper DFS channels the node 2i will not be found by any Bluesband app (iOS / Mac). In fact, looking up the connection table on my router shows the node 2i as not connected. When I switch back to a lower channel it shows up again (almost immediately). Thus currently I am forced to set the router to a fixed channel. 

    Best regardS

    Hello,

    "Hello Daniel,

    Thank you for your extended patience and getting back to me with the update.

    After running through some tests here in our Bluesound lab, the "upper" DFS channels on the 5Ghz band are not supported on our Bluesound Players. Therefore, in this case I would advise setting the DFS channels manually to 48 and under. 

    I do apologize for any inconvenience. I really appreciate your feedback as we are always developing our BlueSound Players alongside with our BluOS Controller App, continuing to expand on its features and deliver a more customized and Hi-Fi listening experience.

    I will forward your input to our Quality Assurance Team for further research and consideration.

    Hopefully this helps."
