What happens if you turn OFF The RBS50 and let the devices connect to the rest of the system...?

Can you describe how you have your Satellites set up? If your phone is on the same subnet as your hompod, you should not be having this issues. Your satellites will all be on the same subnet as the router. So anything connected wired or wirelessly, will be pulling its IP address from the DHCP. Ping the IP address of the hompod and post your results.

I would check your network settings and WIFI settings on the phone and compare them to the hompod.

There's always a logical answer, if you have all the facts!

I use AirPlay no problem. Sounds like something is wrong in the satellites setup
