    Hi Keith,
    I honestly have never had any issues with any of the V2.0 Polys I've been testing advertising themselves as render or server. I can leave a Poly for days then go back and when I turn on MConnect/8Player immediately connect back up. Of course none of this helps you. Do you get the same issue on your home network? This might all be related to the issue where
    Polys MPD server resets when you connect back to a new WiFi network. If your phone hotspot loses the 3G/4G data signal then it will drop temporarily and MPD inside Poly will reset
    causing the disconnect and stuttering. I'm getting this investigated next week.
    It might be worth doing a couple of things though. Firstly do a hard reset of your phone. Last week after an iOS update my iPhone was doing all sorts of crazy things with the hotspot.
    The reset fixed everything.
    The next thing to try if you haven't already done this is to delete the iPhone WiFi network in Poly and reconnect it. You can try this for your home network as well. V2.0 firmware is a complete OS update as well so it's worth clearing and starting again with any of the connections you used previously. Although having read your last post I guess as you have factory reset Poly then you have already tried this.
    As for Roon not playing anything then do you get any error messages in Roon - like transport loading slowly, or control taken by another device? Also I presume you are using the latest 1.6 (build 401) version of Roon as this is the version that Roon tested and certified Poly with.

    Matt

    Have you tried any other apps? Glider needs an update but I have not been able to contact Joe who developed the app. I had to delete and reinstall Glider to get it working again but even so the MPD player part will no longer work. Joe if you are on here somewhere please get in touch.
    As for having our own app then at the time it seemed like we would just be wasting development time on reinventing the wheel as there are already plenty of apps available and customers usually have a favourite that they already use. We will take the feedback though and re-evaluate this decision over the coming months.

    Hi, this is the one issue I am experiencing following the firmware update (MPD not starting up on boot up so that android MPD apps unable to connect and zero playlists in GoFigure. I've not found a consistent way to start up MPD. Last time Power Poly Off, eject SD card, Power Poly On, Insert SD card resulted in MPD up and running

    The update is worldwide and I'm not aware of any particular problem with Australia.
    Have you tried powering Poly completely down so P status light goes out and then turning back on again.
    Then just leave Poly to see if the update starts. If not press the update button in Gofigure again.

    If you are using Android Gofigure try hitting the switch at the bottom of the Poly search page to try again with alternate mode.

    Try alternate mode on the Poly search screen in Gofigure.

    Yes as per Mike's post please contact our support. Your Poly is not bricked but it is behaving like the battery is really low.
    I'm sure you have probably already tried but unplug Poly from Mojo and charge Poly on it's own until the P status light goes to solid or flashing blue
    then try again.

    Ok thanks for the feedback. I'll report this back to the team on Monday. One thing you can try is to delete art-cache, mpd and sd-free files from your SD card and then put it back in Poly
    so it can rebuild the database. It's possible the database files are no longer being recognised after the V2.0 update.

    Cannot for the life of me get this thing to update the firmware. I'm fully connected to my wifi network with a solid blue light. When I go to device settings on gofigure there is no option to update. And it cannot have updated it already because when I click on 'user' at the top it asks me to upgrade to the latest firmware. Please help.

    My Poly was replaced in waranty after it suddenly stopped working (out of the blue) but unfortunately I can't make the Gofigure app (latest version) recognize the new Poly (on my Samsung Galaxy S7 that i was using before). I've tried unistalling the Gofigure app, clear both the app and Bluetooth cache. I've managed to configure the new Poly to connect to the phone's hotspot (while the phone was connected to the Internet) and it even downloaded a new firmare version (I know that because Poly’s P-status LED cycled through Red, Green and Blue) but I can't see the firmware version on the Poly page when in Access Point Mode (the firmware version isn't displayed there and never was before the firmware update; i know that because I've checked before configuring the Wi-Fi settings and after the firmware update). I get a solid Blue LED when it's connected to the phone's hotspot and I can also see Poly connected in the Hotspot settings of the phone. But I can't see my new Poly in the Gofigure App (i've tried with both Normal & Alternate mode). I initially connected/paired Poly via Bluetooth (without using any PIN) but after failing to see it in the Gofigure app and reading on this forum that it might prioritize the Bluetooth connection instead of the wireless one, I've unpaired Poly and cleared the Bluetooth cache. Now it doesn't detect Poly when i activate Bluetooth...
    Also I have a problem with the new unit that I never encountered with the old unit, a problem that Malcyg & kierai also had with their Poly: the Samsung EVO Plus microSD card I've inserted in Poly without using any force is stuck and I can't remove it. The click is there when I push the card, but it doesn't eject the card.
    I will visit the local retailer on Monday morning too see what can be done but if you can give me an advice in the meantime, I would really apreciate it. Unfortunately I don't have an iOS device to test with (like stancorrected did).

    Thanks. I will try that next time if it happens (it occurred on 3 occasions since the update)

    I can't report any issues with Roon as I simply haven't used it since the firmware update. My preferred PC music manager / player is MusicBee and the UPnP/DLNA plugin is working a treat (it could not see poly prior to the firmware update).

    I tried an alternative mode. without success

    So I can now begin the firmware update process but gofigure is telling me there is a problem with my internet connection which there isn't. Does that mean I dont have a fast enough connection (35mb/s having just done a speed test)?

    I have to say this thing is superbly un user friendly in nearly every possible way they could have thought of.

    I am puzzled that we keep getting different suggestions to get poly to update to 2.0 and none of them seem to work for me (and seemingly many others)......CHORD recommends that I should just let the poly battery drain and then should be able to upgrade....not updating and cannot even get into gofigure because no longer accepts 0000 password.

    chord then recommends well if gofigure is asking for bluetooth password and wont accept 0000 then try alternate method.....NO SAME PROBLEM..........

    ok chord how about making a better suggestion .........

    Thanks Matt, anyway, I uninstalled the App and reset my poly and now I can connect it again. Thanks again, and I will not try to update the firmware to 2 at this moment
