My Beam has worked quite happily for over a year. Decided to add a Sub to the setup - and held off buying surrounds for now. It’s taken me on/off a day to get the sub added and connected to the Beam. Honestly, it’s an absolute dumpster fire of a setup process. I mean, I use lots of smart home gadgets, and this is definitely the worst setup process I’ve been thru. I’ve setup different Wi-Fi networks, changed settings as per suggestions on here, sometime I see the Sub but no Beam, then I see the Beam and no Sub. Then I see both but it says they aren’t on the network, and then the sub needs an update - which it subsequently says failed, and then “no update required”. Seriously folks, do you do any QA of the setup process at all?
It appears to be working, but I know as soon as I get a power outage or a network reboot, it’ll die and I’ve no desire to go thru this hot mess again. Whoever is responsible for software development there really needs to try and experience the setup from a consumer perspective. In the same time it took to get the sub working, i managed to install 3 Alexas, and 10 Hue lights all connected to Wi-Fi no issue.
