Thanks for your replies guys. My Linn dealer has asked me to bring in all my kit and set it up there, to see what's going on with it. Maybe rule out a local network issue. Good excuse to catch up and play some tunes anyway. And I will re-read the Konfig manual with regards to source names. Thanks!
Yeah they are connected via an RS232 cable.
Hi all, I have a weird issue that has left me stumped. I have a Majik DS (latest firmware) and a Majik Kontrol. Everything worked perfectly. I swapped out my Majik Kontrol with an early Exotik to see if there was an improvement, given it uses the Akurate Kontrol board. After the Exotik was installed, I could never get the any control apps to work properly (Windows Kazoo, iOS Kazoo, iOS Linn). They would either show me what is playing but cannot control volume, or the opposite - I can control volume, but I cannot see/control what is playing on the 'now playing' screen. I read that early Exotiks did not allow that function, so it didn't bother me. This week however I have swapped out the Exotik with a Klimax Kontrol. I changed what preamp is selected in the Konfig app and rebooted, but still have the same problem. It's weird - I will be able to control the volume on my iphone, and then I will force quit the app and re open it. And then, I can see the 'now playing' screen but can't control volume! It just seems to swap whenever I force quit and re open. Or, I will be able to control volume on iOS Kazoo, and then I open the new Linn app and its the opposite there - no volume but can see 'now playing'. It is always one or the other. If I reinstall my Majik Kontrol, it all works again. Another weird thing - if, on Konfig under the Kontrol sources, I name the DS's input as 'Majik DS', it doesn't appear in the inputs list on the phone app. However if I hit the spacebar after typing 'Majik DS ' in the source name box, it appears instantly in the list. Bizarre!!! I should also mention... holy moley. The Klimax Kontrol pre has really elevated my system. I was not expecting such a big improvement. The Kontrol is on loan at the moment but I am really going to struggle to give it back.
