    Hi,

    Thanks for the comment. I will pass this on to our development team for future consideration.

    Thanks for living HiFi.

    I've been requesting this for years and they've been "considering" it for years. It's been an incredibly frustrating process. I literally have a separate Bose bluetooth speaker in my kitchen, only so I can push LivePhish audio to a speaker.  I can't play Airplay anything from the LivePhish app to the NODE in my main listening room, or any of my PULSE 2i or Mini speakers I have set up in my house. Had I known this in advance of purchasing, I probably would have went with a different connected speaker option.

    There is no reason it should not be compatible given the Nugs.net compatibility and the Livephish platform is run by the same company.

    Yes, I thought the same when I submitted my initial support request for this over three years ago. I also reached out to LivePhish, who was actually quite responsive, but in the end they punting things back over Bluesound's way saying the issues weren't on their end. Still waiting...

    I struggle with the same thing.  I can't use my Bluesound speakers with LivePhish.  It is maddening.

    I have been asking for this as well. That said, I can tell you what I've done to support all of the services I want that aren't Bluesound native. I got a cheap gen1 Sonos Connect (can be had for $50 on eBay) and plugged it into one of my Nodes optical input. Boom. All Sonos services are now bluesound enabled. Biggest limitation was needing to set the zone master to the Node that has the Sonos connect attached to it, which is being solved by the HUB when it arrives later this week. It is not ideal juggling 2 apps, but it is far better than the Bluetooth speaker route some are suggesting. Also, all bluesound products support AirPlay and Bluetooth as targets... Why not just bluetooth / AirPlay to them?

    Bluetooth/Airplay on Bluesound devices won't play anything pushed from the LivePhish app. For some reason the connection freezes the player at the source, causing it to buffer non-stop. I could honestly care less about a full LivePhish app integration (although that would be nice) - all I really want is ability to play something from the LivePhish app through my Bluesound system via bluetooth/Airplay. That's currently impossible.

    I'm checking in with the same problem since my Sonos Connect died. Cannot AirPlay from LivePhish iOS app to any Bluesound airplay targets.

  • If Phish are not allowing their App to be cast by AirPlay or BT that is by design in their App.

    The app allows both options, but neither work with BluOS AirPlay targets specifically. It continuously toggles between a play/pause state. I sent a video of the behavior to your support team. Not surprisingly their first response was once again blaming my network.

  • Hi Craig

    I have taken a quick look at your history. Our Quality Assurance Department are also big fans of UniFi but have found some performance tweaks you may benefit from. Please review your Ubiquiti documentation;

    Since you have 8 APs, in the Ubiquiti App on both the 2.4 and 5 networks, please disable Minimum RSSI to prevent devices from hoping from AP to AP on borderline devices located between APs.

    Also on the Site settings, please disable Auto-Optimise Network

    All of my BluOS devices are hardwired. I understand that tons of your customers have problems that are directly related to their network's inability to handle the way that you have decided to implement mDNS discovery between players, but that is not the problem in my network. My network is also not the reason that I and user Joonathankeller cannot AirPlay or bluetooth from the same specific iOS app to a Bluesound endpoint, even though that app works fine with other bluetooth devices and AirPlay endpoints from different manufacturers.

    @Tony - The LivePhish App DOES allow casting via Airplay and BT!

    I can cast to ANY BT enabled speaker I own. I can also cast to ALL my Airplay devices (Sonos speaker, AppleTV, TV Soundbar, etc...). 

    For some reason, the Bluesound devices are the ONLY devices that don't work! It is not the App. 

    Is it too much to ask for someone at Bluesound to actually download the LivePhish app (they offer a free 7-day trial) and then attempt to push the music to your own devices?

    What is the point of having LivePhish HIFI if I have to play over Bluetooth?  I want to be able to stream the full lossless sound through my Bluesound.

    I have been following this issue for years now. I have the same exact issue as everyone above. Livephish works on BT and airplay, all devices, just not airplay to bluesound. It has been incredibly frustrating, and I really hope someone from tech support will download the livephish app and see what we are talking about. I am also very disappointed to have set up my system around bluesound only to never hear my favorite band hifi on my awesome home stereo system.
    Please! ..and thank you for working on this issue.

    David
