I inherited a GC18 and after recurring problems with the ipod dock, I went to the airplay over airport express route. I got everything set up perfectly, but (and I don't think that its related to this hook-up) I am not getting anything out of my 5th zone.
I get Airplay over the other 4 zones no issues, full control.
Nothing out of zone 5.
Troubleshooting so far.
Connected speakers from zone 5 to zone 3. The 5th zone works fine, full volume control. This tells me that its not the speaker wire run.
Slaved Zone 1 to Zone 5 (through the Zone 5 wall plate). When I did this, I could control Zone 1 through the Zone 5 wall plate. This tells me the CAT5 run is okay...
So if both the CAT5 and speaker runs seem to be okay, I'm not sure what gives. One bit that I dont understand is if I hook up the speakers to Zone 6 and then move the CAT 5 to a different jack in the 18port e-net hub, Zone 5 still lights up on the GC. I'm guessing thats because the IP address is maintained and its port ambivanet, but I'm not sure where to go/what to do next.
Thanks in advance - cw
