    Hi Yael

    You cannot play one Player's Bluetooth or physically connected external equipment on a second Player directly. The Player must be the primary (first) member of a group to play on secondary grouped Players.

    You will either have to have your handheld device within Bluetooth range of the PULSE FLEX 2i (which is about 10m give or take) and pair to that Player or you will have to listen to the POWERNODE grouped with the FLEX.

    If your handheld device is an Apple iPad or iPhone, you can AirPlay to the PULSE FLEX 2i.

    Thank you for this. I do have an older iPad that should be able to enable AirPlay. I have never used AirPlay before and I am following the directions from the Bluesound website but the AirPlay icon isn't appearing in my control panel, which I guess means that the Flex isn't being read by the iPad as networked. The Flex is connected with ethernet still, and I can control it fine with the blueOS app, so why isn't it visible to the iPad on the same internet system?

    The older iPad must be on iOS 11.3 or higher to use AirPlay. Perhaps your older iPad may be too old.

    Give your network router a reboot. Wait 10 minutes and try again. If the problem persists, check out www.apple.com/airplay for Apple Troubleshooting tips.
