When the SAP announcement is invalid, no AES67 audio data will flow because the Q-SYS core processor is not the clock (PTP) grandmaster.

To solve this, open the Atlona app and configure the OmniStream device this way:

  1. Click on System information.
  2. Select Session
  3. Turn off FEC enable. This disables forward error correction (FEC).

  1. Select PTP
  2. Set Priority 1 to 255 and Priority 2 also to 255. This will assign the Q-SYS core processor the role of grandmaster.
