Dutifully updating everything to 12.2. I had 2 homepods as a stereo pair in my living room. One of them was on apparently permanent standby, no longer paired. I unplugged it and tried to set it up again, but once I tried to pair it, it threw up a “set up failed” error message.
I gave up and moved it to the bedroom where it set up after two tries.
Then HomeKit showed both homepods as not responding when they were both working. I closed and reopened the HomeKit app and it’s showing them now, but I’m afraid to touch anything else so I’m just quitting while I’m ahead.
Sad that I don’t have a stereo system anymore, but I guess now I can listen to music in my bedroom. Seems like this should be easier. Any HomePod gurus know what’s up?
