I offer this as an FYI for what others may experience with the latest software upgrade. It seemed best you be aware that for at least one user it didn't work.
I sat down to listen to some music on my NAD M32 with the BluOS add-in card. I was greeted with a notice that there was a new release of BluOS for my device. It said that the install could take up to half an hour. Rather than listening to music, I told it to go ahead with the update.
The front panel display of the M32 changed, and I started reading instead of tracking what was happening. After a while I noticed that noting much seemed to be happening. I looked closer at the M32 display - it is too far away for me to read clearly from where I sit. It said something like Stage 1 Error 1. I did not take notes or a picture, but I am certain that was the essence of the message. I went back to reading. Eventually the M32 powered down. I waited another 20 minutes, unsure if it might be Doing Something despite apparently being Off.
When I powered it up again I went through the M32 menus using the front screen and established that it was running 3.4.13.
When I started the app on my iPad I was given the same choice as before, upgrade or put it off 24 hours. I chose the delay, and then played some music.
After a bit of a search on the BlueSound web site I found reference to release 3.4.20, dated four hours old. I assume that is what my update experience was trying to achieve.
I am not sure if, having told it to delay for 24 hours, I can override that to tell it to upgrade immediately. I will try to get it to start sooner than tomorrow.
Just thought you should know.
