hi guys,

I have swapped out my ms600 for a 218 to use the inputs, but currently I cannot get on.
the mains is plugged in and the blue led on the rear is lit, but there are no lights on the front or by the network cable input?
it is plugged in to both 5200 also.

I assume you are plugged into the network port and not one of the speakerlink ports?
I would read and follow the 218 user guide.


If you give a man a fish he will eat for a day. But if you teach a man to fish he will buy an ugly hat. And if you talk about fish to a starving man then you are a consultant.

Also the inputs in the control app do not map the same as an MSR remote. I spent ages puzzled by that


No 18 in the Hall of fame smile I have simple tastes; I am content to settle for the best:
GIK monster bass panels, rear wall. QNAP TVS 471i3. Roon into DSP5200SE via 218 zone... Explorer 2. Bluesound Pulse 2, Mini & Flex. 596v1, 518, Foxsat HD, Sony BDP, Pioneer 5090, 2 Chromecast's for LRB videos. F80

Sorry for the delay

The lights are now on, but network problems again.

Meridian Sooloos config works, and I can connect via Internet Explorer and change the settings.
I have enabled 2 settings one for Roon and one for TV and both using SpeakerLink, but no sound currently. Do I need to change the speaker settings, and how?

Also Roon cannot see the 218, and I have done a full network reboot, I have also changed my router and switch as I think my first Cisco was faulty anyway, but nothing in Roon.

Thanks Russ.

I have sorted the speakers and sound is coming out, just nothing from Roon again.

For some reason the 218 is being set with a IP of 169.*** range, which the router says is out of range of the 192.***

169 is an IP the 218 assigns when it can not get an IP from the router. Further pm sent.
