  1. I upgraded to a Klimax DSM/2 and am trying to figure out the best way to set up AppleTV (4th gen) with it. Initially the Apple remote conflicted with the DSM and so Linn support said I need to turn off ATV's control of TV's and Receivers. Linn responded.... "I have spoken to an engineer and he suspects that the problem you report is related to the Apple TV4 (The Apple TV4 is confusing the control and overriding the KDSM). He suggests to try the following: Go into the Apple TV4 > Settings > Remotes and Devices > Control TV’s and Receivers = OFF" BUT the catch is that now I need to keep the TV remote handy to turn on and off the TV. When I asked Linn about this further they responded... The engineer advises that the link I sent originally is the only option. When ARC is not being used the AppleTV will switch the TV OFF, when you switch on the TV then the AppleTV will force everything to go to ARC (this prevents from controlling the Linn DSM as there are effectively two controllers). The only option he can suggest to try is to wire the Apple TV directly to a TV HDMI socket (non-ARC) and have the KDSM on the TV HDMI(ARC) socket. This will probably allow you to have some control of the TV via the Apple and will probably allow the KDSM to work properly. Unfortunately, we cannot test this as different TV’s will respond in different ways. I didn't find this worked with my new Samsung UN65RU. Has anyone found a better way to set up the AppleTV (that avoids having a third remote on the table)? Thanks, John
  2. Hmmm.... maybe it's different on iOS devices. I still get "ERROR. We're sorry. An error occurred with this stream. Please try again later."
  3. Well I created a Premium account in TuneIn in order to Modify my favorites. I get an error message when I try to create a Custom URL pin the iOS apps with any of the Flac Streams--including the ICY versions. Bill did say on the Flac Forum in the RP website that TuneIn can't handle Flac streams :(
  4. Not to worry... it's been long out of warranty. And from a friend who had to send his Majik DSi in, there's a flat fee of $450 at least for repairs from the US.
  5. Unfortunately my meter is at my old house waiting for it to sell. Guess I need to get a new one 😊
  6. It wouldn't stay in the hole without solder, so I did solder it back in. Unfortunately no power still. How likely is it that the fuse has failed? Seems like I can only order 10 at a time and with shipping it'll run about $25 USD. Worth the gamble?
  7. Thanks everyone -- it does look like it needs to be soldered. I'll keep my fingers crossed that solves the issue and I don't have to send it in to the factory!
  8. iI just moved and when I got to my new home found my Sneaky DS is dead--no lights anywhere even after using the "Fallback" button. I decided to open the case and a red/maroon colored resistor fell out. Nothing else in the case looks like it. Anyone know where it would fit on the audio board or power supply? I hate to send it in for an expensive repair if it might be something that can pop back in. It looks like it might fit in the power supply board (see second photo). There's also writing on the case that says "Replace Fuse with Wickmann 372" -- I was trying to see if a fuse might be blown, but I can't see anything that looks like a fuse. Thanks, John
  9. I'm in need of a new TV. I found with my old TV and an AppleTV that there was too much audio lag (compared to the video) to send the audio from my AppleTV to my Klimax DS via Airplay. New Airplay2 enabled TV's are just hitting the market. Any thoughts on whether that might solve the issue or whether I'd still end up lag. I'm hoping to avoid going from a DS to a DSM as the only other source I'd like to run through my Linn system is TV audio. Thanks, John
  10. I just replaced my Apple TV 3 with the latest generation and am finding that there is still a synching problem when I try to Airplay the output of the ATV to my Klimax DS/1--namely the audio and video get out of synch. Is there any solution to this (other than buying a DSM or a Klimax Kontrol)? Thanks, John
