I have been trying to figure out why my Subs will not connect to the playbars in my rooms. I have two subs and two playbar that used to all work. I moved and had to set it up with a new router. Playbars, plays 5, play ones all work wireless. When I try to set up the subs.. I can detect it set it up, but adding it to a room with a playbars it fails. It gives an error about unable to find sub. If I factory reset and add it to a room without any devices, I can add the sub, but it comes up as unassigned. When I assign it to a room, it fails again. If I do it directly, plug it into Ethernet, it works fine. It updated, and when I unplug it, the sub disappears. I then retried again after the update, and no luck. Same error when adding it to a room. Help? Any ideas?

That’s okay as a temporary test, but having a Sub or surround as the only wired device will lead to intermittent problems, which is why
- The wireless connection to home theatre satellites fluctuates from time to time, as it changes channel.
- Loading the satellite connection with internet traffic could impact latency, causing the satellite to drop.
BTW, if you can wire the Sub surely you could wire a Boost instead? It could be hidden out of the way.
