Once I changed it to 6 (even though I only use 3), it remains synced now. I just changed the names of the sources not being used to DNU. Not clean, but works.
    I find that you have to set that option to the same value that you have the Russound unit set to. I had the plugin set to 3 (like you), but the actual unit was set for 6 sources. Once I programmed the unit for 3 it worked. Like you, I first set it to 6 and it worked as well, but since I currently only use 3 I tried that (setting both to 3) and it worked great too

    The latest BLSpeech update fixed it. Thanks!

    I'm getting a debug log to you right now. I'm logged in to your site and filling out the report.

    I find that odd because I only changed the source options page

    This plugin is not working very well at all. Sources are out of sync and if you switch fast on the keypad the plugin makes the sources switch like crazy. It always seems to be one one source behind. If im on Source 5 it shows Source 4.

    Integration with BLSpeech is no good. Zones that were off stay on after an announcement. Zones dont return to the correct sources. Sometimes the announcement volume dont adjust, or sometimes the volume doesn't turn back and causes blasting music waking you up in the middle of the night.

    I have logged a ticket before and Blade attempted to do some fixes but its still not right. Im glad im not the only one that is still having issues.

    Also on the source pages where you set keypad presses to events. When you select an event and click save, the event is not saved to the key press. Also the events should be in alphabetic order as they are hard to find.

    Well now it would seem with the latest update i installed, the CAM6.6 is not changing sources at all for me. It changes on the screen of the keypad, but doesn't actually change.

    I have decided to just rebuild so that the regrouping of the devices is proper with the new update. It's slowly rebuilding, but taking a long time and I am missing a lot of controls. Assuming just leave it be?

    This has never happened for me. I have seen BLSpeech not return to the original zone properly though. That kind of thing has become fairly uncommon though with the recent updates.

    Prior to that, I used Vera for 4 years without any issues with Russound caa66 integration set up similar to how I have it now. My events are pretty simple zone on and off with motion.

    Issues I've seen:
    * Sometimes (I've seen this happen 5 times now), the source will alternate be my sources every second or so. I have no events that change a source, except a single off event that sets the default zone before turning off, and verified that that event is not looping/running).

    * When I had BLSpeech enabled, several times the volume gets stuck on down (even when you click it up, it will go down again) when speech was playing in currently on zones. I've disabled BLSpeech for now as that was the only thing I was using it for over a week and the volume down issue appeared.

    I tried restarting the Russound, but only restarting the BLRussound plugin fixes both issues.

    Issue 1 I've seen but it switches between sources MUCH more frequently than once per second.

    Issue two sounds like it might be a bug. Could you file a report for Blade?

    I just installed blspeech and noticed the same thing about the volume. Also if you change sources at the keypad, HS gets outta sync.

    If you can't find them on ebay you're going to have to go through a Russound dealer. If ou call Russound they can get you in touch with a dealer in your area or one who might be able to ship them to you. They don't sell anything as far as I know. They might sell you the ears but I kinda doubt it. Also, what about Amazon?

    Scratch that. Amazon has nothing.

    If you haven't tried already, you might be able to contact Russound and see if they will sell you some. I can't imaging they don't have some back stock somewhere.

    Alternatively, check Ebay:

    ST2 & ST2XM:
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Russound-Rac...cAAOSw9mFWMuLQ


    edit: You might find some better prices on Ebay, those were the first 2 results when searching for "Russound rack ears".
