Hi, I’m having issues with a Play:5 dropping out. It is part of a stereo pair and also has a sub connected. Both play:5’s sit either side of my TV but I’m frequently having dropping issues. I’ve tried changing from channel 11/6/1. Just wondering if someone could have a look at my diagnostics and see if there’s anything I can do?

TV sound is uncompressed PCM audio up to 1411,2 kbps. A Play:5 is not designed for use as TV-speaker. In order to prevent dropouts hardwiring both Play:5s to the router would be required.

So what you’re saying is... I need to buy a play bar...? Good. I thought so. 😉
LOL!

Yes I'd agree with Smilja for sure. You need to get a PLAYBAR.
