Firstly, apologies for jumping straight in with a question! I have done a search and cannot see anyone having quite the same issue as me. It’s a little complex but here we go…
The basic version is:
My Uniti Nova is available as an AirPlay device when using my computer. It is not, however, showing up via my phone, nor can I add it to the Home app.
What is odd is that this was working fine until recently. The Nova was part of my ‘home’, and could be controlled via Siri etc.
OK so this is where it gets a bit more complex…It is wired, as is my computer, to a power line system. This means that it is not on Wifi. To complicate things even more, the wifi within the house is via a second router as the Sky one I have is totally awful and in a terrible part of the house for signal. So the network in the house is more complicated than usual.
However, as I said it was working fine until recently. The only recent issue I have had is with the unit not powering down properly. A call to Naim support suggested turning off UPnP, which on rare occasions is known to cause this issue. I cannot honestly say whether the issue started with this change or not, but I cannot see why it should. I have tried reenabling it but that hasn’t fixed the issue.
Another odd thing is this: I tried resetting the unit to factory settings but had to manually enter the IP address to get it to show up in the app.
So to recap: I can ‘see’ the unit via my computer’s AirPlay function. I can ‘see’ it via the app. I cannot see it through either the Home or Music apps on my phone…HELP (please…it’s driving me nuts).
