The planned date was a few months ago. But we are getting close now. What is it with your current WiFi that is making your AA unusable?

Just to note, if a person has reset to factory defaults by using the 'reset' on a USB key, it goes WAY back to original firmware (or software?) installation.

I just finally plugged in my Axiom Air via ethernet and checked for updates. Only now can i see this 'force hotspot' option.
Until then i thought Ian had gone plain wacko.

Incidentally, the Air was still somehow trying to connect to my home router and i couldn't get it to stop. You can't contact it with a tablet/phone b/c it is not in hotspot mode, but without a password it also is not on my home wifi.
Hence, my only option was to take the Air out of range of my home wifi and reboot it.

Since the USB reset, it also will not save some past settings. For example, if i click on Analog input, it used to save that setting for the next time i turned on the Air but now i have to use the tablet/phone each time to access the Air and turn on that analog connection. Saving this setting was handy because my daughter uses that plugin all the time for hockey warmup and not needing to make that change two or three times a week is seriously convenient (waiting for bluetooth to make this connection for her easier and not need the analog plug hopefully except for on the deck with the Sonos system).

All the bugs aside, when it does get working, the max SPL and sound quality are top notch. The kids have tested the max SPL (and i did out in the yard for kicks) but listening to some FLAC Buena Vista Social club on the deck tonight was super smooth.

The convenience of having this out on the patio instead of the two speaker and AVR system i had in the gazebo is so much easier.

I'll be selling that spare AVR sometime soon.

This is something i haven't tried too much of yet, to directly hookup the Axiom on the home wifi and see about running my music from the base folders. I did give it a go though.

The main problem i had was finding a good rendering app. Of the ones suggested, I've found huge issues and difficulties with all of them including simple things like being able to make a play list more than 3 songs long (these are free apps after all so perhaps these limitations are gone with paid versions). It has been far easier to use the Sonos system and hook into the Air via analog jack. My daughter connects via analog but plays using her Apple phone which has a decent music renderer (i've tried some Android ones on my Pixel 2 and they're all shit, absolute utter shit).

Sonos is so polished compared to these other dinky apps for phones and tablets. It just doesn't make any sense for our home setup. I'll await better options as the future trods forward with better innovations.

Just noting that since the update process, the setting is now being saved again.

One other wacky note, just having hooked up the Air to my home system using the ethernet cable, my finger can't get in to reach the release tab for the ethernet plug.
The plug is too close to the frame of the Air and i'll need to get something thin like a ruler or tweezers so i can unplug the ethernet cable. I don't even have the fat Homer Simpson fingers either.

Design note for future editions of the Air.

Well it doesn't seem to like my Wifi Setup. Meaning I have multiple AccessPoint, to have a great coverage everywhere (same SSID) But no matter what it seems to have a mind of it's own and pick the weakest link.

So, so far, the only solution has been to use the analog output by hooking a cellphone on it to enjoy streaming services like Spotify

I'm trying to resit the urge of just buying some Google Home Maxs. Looking forward to the SW update....

Will the new firmware support playlists copied onto a USB?
