Question: I can't connect to HomePod from my Mac Pro
It seems I have stumbled across a bug. Let me explain...
I have a Mac Pro, on which I have two networks, the physical one using Ethernet as well as a WiFi one. I usually have the Ethernet network set highest in Service Order in Network settings. I basically only use the WiFi to unlock my Mac Pro from my Apple Watch, and AirPlay (I was hoping).
Now I just got a HomePod, and it works great. I can connect to it from my iPhone, iPad, as well as my MacBook Pro. However, I cannot connect to it from my Mac Pro. My Mac Pro sees it, but when I select it in Sound settings, it says it cannot connect. But, if I select the WiFi to have the higher service order in Network settings (above Ethernet), it all works fine...
That MUST be a bug, right? It certainly is a MAJOR irritation. I have no wish to have all my internet traffic go through the slower WiFi, but if I select the service order to prefer Ethernet, I cannot use my HomePod.
