    Latest Firmware Update does not fix Airplay connectivity issues DS9800W

    Hi Philips Support,

    running on the new Firmware 3.8.88.1000 i still experience drops in the Airplay connectivity.

    I am 100% sure my network connection is set up correctly and fully functional.

    The DS9800W just "crashes" and forget it's network name and lose all connectivity to iTunes (mac), iTunes (PC) or iPhone4 (dock studio app, apple remote app and music app).
    After restarting e.g. iTunes the DS9800W shows up as "BridgeCo 047EB5" and i can access it again sometimes. Mostly i have to restart the speakers or worst case run through the set-up process again.

    I would be very happy if i can get some official statement from Philips about this issue and when to expect a fix.

    Thanks, Martin

    hey guys,

    this is what you call support? Not even a reaction, statement? Just nothing?

    Disappointing

    Hey this is really a helpful support forum.... 4 weeks and not even an Update? A hint? A wild guess?

    Customer obsession is something completely else entirely!

    Hey Remko, I am tossing up between the DS9800W and the Zeppelin Air. It would be good if you could provide information to everyone on this matter.

    I whish I did some more research before I bought theses speakers.
    I have the same problem. Randomly the speakers will go dead silent when playing music via airplay. They are still listed in my device/apps for a few seconds before they dissapear. Untill the device updates its information, I guess. It can happen after 30 sec or two hours or every 20 minutes. A reboot of the speakers is all that seem to work to get sound again. There are no significant additional traffic on the wireless network when it happens.

    IT IS VERY FRUSTRATING HAVING YOUR MUSIC CUT OFF ALL THE TIME AND HAVING TO GET UP AND REBOOTING. This is not how you are supposed to enjoy your new WIRELESS speakers.

    I use:
    iPhone 4 IOS 5.1 as source
    Airport Express, 2 meters from speakers. Serial 6F0233NT2UF, Version 7.6.1
    I dont know firmware of speakers. It is not listed in your app. You have the serialnumber of the speakers in my profile. You should be able to find out what firmware they were sold with.

    If your "fix" is a firmware upgrade that internaly reboots the speakers when they "crash", with a long pause in the music as a result and manually having to select speakers again, this is not an acceptable solution...

    I was in the hospital for two weeks the day after I got the speakers. Otherwise I would have cancelled the buy right away. Now I am stuck with a pair of defect speakers for a premium price. For me, at least.

    Thanks for sharing your information here. I was in doubt to buy this pair of speakers. But the lack of interest from Philips to solve this problem and inform customers helped to made my decision easy; I won't buy this speakerset.

    It's really a shame.

    Hi All,

    Can you please try the following:

    -Make sure that your Fidelio AirPlay speaker is located within the WiFi coverage range of the router by taking wifi signal strength as reference from iPhone/iPod/iPad
    -If there are other devices connected to the same WiFi network with AirPlay at the same time, it is recommended to turn off those devices that connect to the router, or minimize any other internet connections activities within the same network
    -If you detect that there are multiple SSIDs/WiFi network connections in the area where Fidelio AirPlay speakers are positioned, it´s likely that the network environment is crowded and cause WiFi connectivity interference. Connectivity can be optimized by enabling Auto Channel Scan option on your router (only applicable if supported by router,please check with router supplier for details). You can also enable Wireless Intelligent Stream Handling (WISH) option or Quality of Service (OoS) option on your router (only applicable if supported by router,please check with router supplier for details).

    Also could you inform what routers you are using.

    Kind regards,

    What you are describing is solutions to the problem of having stuttering in the music due to bad reception or low connectivity. What about when the speakers crash so that only a reboot is the solution? Is there a hardware or software bug that you are trying to ignore?
    My speakers have an excellent connection to my Airport express. Music isn't stuttering. The speakers just die...

    So you say they just die the speakers? That does not look good

    Hi,

    still no solution or wild guess from Philips about this Issue. My original request is over two months old. I exchanged PMs with Philips support but never got a helpful answer back. Your Support Forum is a Joke!

    By they way i now got the "red blinking led from hell"-Symptom and the speakers will be picked up from Philips repair service on monday. Hope they deliver a better pair back

    To all others in this forum waiting for help: It's useless, sorry. Philips is not customer focused, not responsive, not helpful. A waste of time and hope.
