After all the Smarthings server outage issues yesterday:
I have done a factory reset on the Smarthings hub, and rebooted my router (Netgear X8 8500). The Smartthings hub has current firmware.
Re-added your SM and DH for the Samsung speakers.
Re-added speakers to Home things, etc
Followed your instructions for setting surrogate speaker for tts in automation and Home GUI’s. Settings saved.
Set up the Speaker Companion weather announcement Smartapp.
Re-saved settings in the Home and Automation for the speaker.
Played Iheart on Samsung Multiroom.
Checked Home Device speaker using your Gui and refreshed display. Looks good.
Went to automation and triggered the weather announcement on that speaker. The announcement played and the music restarted. Success!
Then I changed the Samsung Multiroom to play a Pandora station. I triggered the Weather announcement and it successfully played. But the Pandora station would not restart. I checked Samsung Multiroom app and the Pandora station that I selected was no longer playing or selected. I tried this with several other stations with the same results.
