I noticed that when playing music over AirPlay 2, the connection would frequently disconnect. So I started timing it from the moment it connects to the moment it disconnects, and found it to be consistently 1 hour exactly.
Has anyone else experienced this? Any ideas what might be causing it?
I strongly doubt that it’s due to wifi connectivity issues, because:
- it’s so consistent, and such a neat length of time, that it can’t be coincidence
- I have very few other devices on the 2.4ghz network (everything else is on 5ghz), so it’s not a crowded network, and the Arc has direct line of sight to the wifi router
The only other info I’ve found on the internet is this ancient post from 2014: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/6138924. The only comment on that post suggests checking the router’s DHCP lease, but mine’s set to 10 days - not 1 hour.
I also have a HomePod Mini in another room which I also AirPlay to from the same device (MacBook Pro 2019), and have never had it disconnect on me in the middle of playing music.
