MusicCast does not work properly.

Please check that your Smart Device is connected to the correct network. If you still can't make any progress, please contact us and we will be happy to help you.

Playback briefly interrupts when rooms are connected.

This effect can occur with a bad WLAN network.

Solution: Activate the following setting: "Stability Boost" under Settings >> Main Room >> Link Control. If this function is activated, you will get a bigger buffer and you can listen to your music without interruption.

I get an error message when I use an iOS device for the initial configuration.

If the WIFI connection is weak or unstable, there may be a time error in the initial configuration. In the WIFI settings, make sure you have selected the Network Mu-sicCast Setup. Please do not close the WIFI configuration menu of your iOS device until the iOS device has connected to the network and the reception quality is visi-ble in the upper left corner of the display.

I can't find the room (device) in the room image.

Please check if the device to be used is connected to the power supply.
