Hardware :: Airport Express, Airtunes, Unknown Error After Computer Wakes Up?

May 28, 2009

i'm getting message that says "an unknown error (-15006) occurred while connecting to the remote speaker" right after my macbook wakes up. i tried that solution, but it didn't help. It's not a big deal, cuz after i press OK i can select my remote speakers from iTunes again and it'll play, but the problem is that i'm using app "Alarm Clock 2" and i need it to play though my remote speakers. obviously, if that error appears iTunes won't start playing, and i won't wake up))))))))

My question: did anybody encounter that problem and is there any solution?

P.S. sometimes error window doesn't appear and iTunes app plays through internal speakers normally, although it displays that it plays through the remote speaker.

Hardware :: Using Airport Express For Airtunes?

Oct 23, 2010

My apologies if this is covered elsewhere, but I haven't been able to find a topic that answers my question - if there is one please let me know.

I would like to use my AE purely for remote speakers for itunes. This works fine if I select the AE as my network via Airport on my macbook, but then this means that I can't access my wireless modem and therefore the internet.

Any hints on how to select the AE purely for itunes and still be able to go only online?

Hardware :: Using Airport Express/Airtunes?

Aug 17, 2009

Ultimately the reason I want it is that I plan to do a lot of travelling abroad next summer and my only truly portable device is an iPhone. Which has no network port. Most of the hotels I'm planning on staying in will have free wired network connections but no wifi at all (I have asked) so I'm hoping that I can use the Express to get connected with my phone. I've checked online and found a few other people doing this too and I'm happy with setting it up, though any anecdotes about success/failure would be interesting to add to my mental list.

Since it's not a cheap device I thought about using it at home when I'm not travelling, and came across the Airtunes feature. Ports permitting (have to check tonight) would this allow me to use my TV's built-in speakers to play my music in my living room or does it have to be a standalone? I only have some very tinny USB speakers with my computer so this could be a decent alternative to my current setup, which is streaming my library to my PS3. Any suggestions here again gratefully received.

Final question - I'm not that knowledgeable about wifi. Is anything in the pipeline which would make an Airport Express upgrade in the next ten months likely, or should I be find on the current model? I'm happy with the spec as is, I just don't want to buy it then find out that some brand new wifi technology reaches the mainstream in a couple of months' time and renders my purchase completely out of date. If the only boosts are likely to be cosmetic/price then I will go ahead and buy now to give me plenty of time to get used to it and take it on test runs on trips.

Hardware :: Can I Use Airtunes Without An Airport Express?

Nov 20, 2009

My third Airport Express in less than four years has just given up the ghost which has made me realise that they're very cheap, badly made pieces of crap. I'm currently borrowing my parents' Linksys Wifi router which has much greater range (covering my entire house - suddenly I can check emails on the loo!) and has also confirmed that all the internet problems I was having was in fact the APE and not my MacBook Pro or Snow Leopard.

So my question is: can I send my iTunes music from my MBP to my hi-fi over my wireless network without the need for an Airport Express?

This is a pre airport express purchase question. Is airtunes software loaded on a computer, software in the airport express and is it included when you purchase an aiport express or is it software that is needed to be purchased seperately?

Software :: Using Airtunes (airport Express) And Video (MKV) Files?

Feb 20, 2009

I'm quite happy with all the apple products. Yesterday I bought the airport, for the reason to play video's (MKV format) visualy on my MBP, while i send the sound thrue airport express (airport) to my remote speakers.

I feel I'm "tricked", because this is the reason why i bought the airtunes. Only to find out it -like it actually advertises- really only plays sound thrue itunes. I do not want to trick my files to have itunes be able to play the MKV. (Besides, even if they play, the sounds stays on the laptop, whether i click sounds to the airtunes or not..).

Is there a simple -FREE- way to do this? I feel scammed for using airfoil, since they charge money for this option

As much as I hoped i wouldn't be alone with this questions, i can find little info about this. I've searched the forum and couldnt find it, nor is there a clear answer thrue google)

Hardware :: Using Time Capsule And AirTunes With Airport Express

Jan 19, 2008

I currently use my Airport Express as my wireless router. It's also plugged directly into my stereo so I can take advantage of AirTunes, which I love to do.

I was thinking of purchasing Time Capsule, but I suppose there's no way I can take advantage of it's 802.11n capabilities and continue to use AirTunes on my network?

Hardware :: Fixing Airport Express Choppy AirTunes?

Nov 2, 2009

I've had an Airport Express streaming music to my kitchen for a good year or so, and it's worked great until recently. Now it seems that 4-5 times per song, the music will cut out for a few seconds!

The only thing I can think of that's changed lately is I installed the latest version of iTunes and Apple TV software on products.

Is anyone else having such a problem lately, or does anyone have any advice on a fix?

Hardware :: Airport Express/airtunes Support Broadband?

Jan 26, 2010

I'm looking into purchasing a modem through our phone carrier that will allow me to use internet at my house (much cheaper than the monopoly of cable internet). I was wondering if I can somehow make that 3g network modem wireless with my airport express so that I can use the internet wirelessly on multiple computers throughout the house (including appletv).

Hardware :: Using IMac As Base Station For Airport Express And Airtunes

Jun 26, 2009

I have a specific problem that I have tried to research and correct, but still no solutions. Here it is:

I currently have a wireless setup in my house using the IMac as a base station. I have this setup through the "Sharing" tab in System Preferences. I have an ITouch that I then connect to this network and surf the web downstairs, etc. It works great!

I purchased a new Airport Express that I want to plug in downstairs next to the stereo and then use Airtunes to play music over the stereo downstairs. This Airport Express would connect wirelessly to the IMac base station, just like the ITouch does. I also need to still be use the Itouch with this configuration.

Applications :: Unknown ITunes Error (-42408) Computer Authorization

Mar 9, 2010

I just plugged in my old iPod (a nano 1g) and iTunes said I need to authorize my computer or 15 songs would be taken off. So I chose authorized, typed in my password, and it gave me unknown error -42408. I tried again a few times with the same results. So I decided to look it up on Apple's support website, and it didn't have anything about it. I also couldn't find it on Google. What the heck does this mean and how do I fix it? Btw I just plugged it in a week ago and it worked.

Hardware :: Airport Express Works With WiFi Computer Only?

Dec 21, 2008

I want to buy an Airport Express to stream by iMac Itune library but not sure if it works as I want -

I have a normal Asus wireless route in my living room. My iMac is in my bed room and can only be LANed via wired connection. My home Hi Fi audio system is in my living room but there cannot be LAN cable between my router and Hi Fi audio system.

If the Airport is connected to my Hi Fi audio system, can I still also stream my iMac Itune libarary? Or Airport must stream a Wi-Fi connected computer?

MacBook Air :: Adding MBA To Wireless Airport Express As A Second Computer?

Jan 26, 2009

I have a problem I've been working on for over an hour.

I have a uni MBP that has wireless internet and printing through an airport express (just internet and printing, not using Airtunes feature).

I bought a MBA last night and am trying to get it to work as well. It works just fine as far as wireless internet, but the wireless printing simply will not work. I have the printer listed in my MBA and all airport express utility settings seem to be A-OK, it just will not print wirelessly from the MBA. The printer queue just gives me the old Error 300: The printer does not respond.

OS X :: Airtunes Blipping - Doesn't Stream Music Direct From Source To Express?

Dec 20, 2009

I have step up Airtunes (Express) and it works fine from computers on the LAN connected via ethernet, but the one PC it doesnt work well on is in the kitchen (wireless with a 90% connection N). The express obviosly has a good connection otherwise it wouldnt work on the other PCs. It seems that the way iTunes works is that if you play music from a shared location (we have a music server) it doesnt stream the music direct from the source to the express, the music travels via the PC with which is controlling the music (which is a bit silly?) Due to this, the Kitchen PC doesnt work well, but if when clicked play, the music went straight from the source to the express it would work fine

App Store :: Not Allowed To Download Previously Purchased App (Unknown Error, Error -4)?

May 1, 2012

Trying to re-install Twitter from the Mac App Store. When I click "install" I get a prompt to type in my Apple ID (pre-filled with jonas.clement@hotmail.com; NOT ME). When I type my correct Apple ID and password in I get an "Error -4" message followed by "Unknown Error" message.  

I have NO clue who jonas.clement@hotmail.com is. My account has not been hacked (at least no unauthorized purchases have been made).  When I view my previously purchased apps, I see the whole list, Twitter, included...but I can't seem to download it.  

Here's what I'm running: 

Mac OS X 10.6.8
App Store 1.0.2 (63.1)  

Here's what I've tried. Signing out of the App Store and signing back in.Signing out of the App Store and not signing back in until I try to download the App. Signing out of iTunes (trying everything). Restarting. What else is causing these errors?

Hardware :: AirTunes - Error -3256

Sep 14, 2008

I'm having trouble getting airtunes to play to my remote speakers. It worked as of this morning, but I moved the box to the other side of the room and added a printer. Ended up reseting the airport express. It's set up with a green light, but when I attempt to play music I get "An error occurred while connecting to the remote speaker.... An unknown error occurred (-3256)" etc.

I've upgraded the airport firmware, reset settings for AEBS and the express, restarted the computer, and now I am out of ideas.

Hardware :: Won't Tether IPhone For Internet And Airport For AirTunes

Jan 27, 2010

I don't have internet access at home, instead tethering to my iPhone via USB when needed. However I do have a local Airport network set up for Airtunes streaming. The problem is that if connect to my Airport network, my computer no longer connects to the internet via USB tethering since it apparently expects to connect over wifi. Is there a way to simultaneously be online via USB tether AND stream music over Wifi? I'd also like to be able to print over wifi, but that's less of a concern.

Power Mac G5 :: Computer Now Wakes Up Immediately After I Put It To Sleep

Nov 14, 2007

I've got a dual G5 running Panther and I put it to sleep when I go to work in the morning. Last night, I wanted to try out Tiger (yes, I know - I'm way behind the times) so I installed it on a FireWire drive and booted off it for a couple of hours to see how things worked. I then went back to my internal Panther drive, and everything is ok except for one thing: when I hit "sleep", it goes to sleep, the screens turn off, and then for some reason I immediately hear the internal drives spin back up and the thing turns on again! Why can't it stay asleep?

Software :: System Goes To Standby And Wakes Up Automatically / Time Machine Error

Mar 20, 2009

Purchased machine in Dec. 07. All well till Nov. 08. Since then have noticed that it will go into standby then wake up. This happens regularly, sometimes after 1 hour, or 2 hours or a few minutes. Have tried to put it in 'sleep' mode but wakes up just the same. All day and all night. So tried "shut down' and it does it as well. Like a ghost is working it.

Have been in constant touch with APPLE CARE, and they made me get another user (test) and it did not seem to wake up in that user. Went back to my user and problem started again. Spoke with 2 product specialists and one said that it cannot be EYETV, as he had it on his Mac and it was fine. Second specialist said it is EYETV and I should contact Elgato. I did this and was sent a link to 'repair'. Followed the instructions and that did not help. 4 days later, my computer suddenly remained in stand by all day.

I was surprised and relieved. Than it started all over again. I am at my wits end. I can only make it stay shut down if I go to 'shut down' and wait for the screen to go black then turn it off at the power point. I am sure that I should not be doing this, but what else can I do? I will contact APPLE CARE again, but will wait for your reply first. Also, I get a little message saying...Time Machine Error. Unable to complete backup. An error occured while copying files to backup volume.
