I recently received two N2's and I'm setting them up. Bluetooth seems to get confused when both are on - is it possible to have both N2's on and connect to each's bluetooth individually? I seem to have to turn one off to connect to the other...

Bluetooth is a peer to peer connection so you would only be able to connect to one at a time. A WiFi connection will allow multiple users to control multiple AxiomAirs simultaneously. Can you put your two N2s on your network?

Thanks for the reply, Ian!

Both N2's are on the network. I understand that I should only be able to connect to one at a time via bluetooth - what I was expecting to see what two's N2 bluetooth connections available and then I would have to pick one to connect to. Instead they seem to "switch names" depending on which one I last connected to and which one is powered on.

Worse, when both N2's are powered on, I don't see any N2's listed as available bluetooth devices. It isn't until I power one of them down do I see the other.

I did an experiment using my android phone, starting with both N2's powered down.

1. Power on #1
2. Scan for new devices and Connect bluetooth - it is called "AxiomAir-Brian" and it's Bluetooth address is 00:1A:7D:DA:71:13
3. Power on #2
4. Scan for more bluetooth devices - this is where I would expect to see the 2nd N2 but I see nothing
5. Power down #1
6. Scan for new devices - nothing listed
7. Look at existing devices - it now lists "AxiomAir-Lara" which is the name I gave to the 2nd N2 - I connect to it
8. It's bluetooth address is the exact same as #1!

So I can confirm that both of my N2's have the same bluetooth address which explains why I don't see two listed.

Is this normal?
