We have 4 Apple Homepod’s in our home.
Two of them are located in our living room and were set up as a stereo pair. This only worked occasionally. Frankly, we haven’t been using them at all lately.
My wife is traveling for the next couple of weeks. If bloody hot in Santa Barbara, CA and my office has turned into an oven. So I hijacked her office that has AC
Doing so I decided to give the two Apple Airpods another try. Reset them to default settings. Removed all configurations from the “home” app and did a clean set up as a stereo pair. Initially it works great but after a while the setup doesn’t work any more. They disappear or only one speaker plays etc etc
Things are worse when trying to use them with my iMac.
I have confirmed that all devices are on the same network etc
Waisted hours resetting and starting from scratch only to end up with the same disappointment over and over again. My conclusion is that using Apple Homepod as a stereo pair doesn’t work.
Hoping that the Airport Mini will come with a firmware upgrade that will solve this relatively simple problem to solve.
