COVR and Apple HomePods stereo
« on: April 28, 2020, 02:28:56 PM »

Hello.
Do you have any information on COVR working with Apple HomePods as a stereo pair, please.
They need a peer-to-peer network, I have heard.
Urgent request.
Thank you.

I think (do not know for sure) both should connect to the covr like any other wireless network and you can use 2 in the same room.

From google:
1. Make sure that both HomePod speakers are in the same room in the Home app.
2. Open the Home app, press and hold HomePod, then tap Settings.
3. Tap Create Stereo Pair.
4. Choose a second HomePod to use as a stereo pair.
5. Tap a HomePod on the right or left side to identify it. ...
6. Tap Back, then tap Done.

I have had two HomePods working fine with an Apple Airport Express Time Capsule.
I had to change to an ISP router modem and it couldnít handle the connection that stereo HomePods needed.
This isnít me asking how to set up HomePods. It is whether COVR supports the peer-to-peer communication (?) that they need.
I canít afford to buy them to find out that they donít.
Urgent request.

Thanks

The COVR is like any other wireless router (access point to client), not peer-to-peer or adhoc mode.
