 ====== How to set up Chord Poly with iOS ====== ====== How to set up Chord Poly with iOS ======
  
-===== Network Connections =====+Depending on what you are trying to do, different setups for better for certain ​ goals. Easy, right?
  
-The Chord Poly currently supports three main ways to connect to your phone in order to be controlled:​ +We will cover certain modes below that seem to currently produce ​the best results:
-  - Using your home Network +
-  - Using your Phone'​s Hotspot +
-  - Using the Poly Hotspot (Poly light flashes blue/green in this mode) +
-For the first two options, you essentially tell Poly the names and passwords of your networks, and it'll connect to whatever one it finds. Unfortunately there is no consistent way to prioritize one over the other, so when you are home and try hotspot things may be flakey. +
- +
-In hotspot mode the poly acts like a router and makes its own network you can join, normally named ''​Poly-123456789''​ - though the numbers for you will be different. +
- +
-In order to switch between Network mode, the first 2 cases, and hotspot mode, you must use the yet-to-be-released GoFigure app, or use a paperclip/​sim eject tool to press and hold the button hidden behind the "​Config"​ hole on the front of the Poly Unit for around 8 seconds. +
- +
- +
-===== Music Playback ===== +
- +
-There are also a variety of ways to play music on the Poly: +
-  - Direct from the inserted MicroSD Card using DLNA +
-  - From a network music source using DLNA +
-  - Direct from the inserted MicroSD Card using MPD +
-  - as an Airplay target from iOS +
-  - As a Roon endpoint +
- +

-Depending on what you are trying to do, different setups for better for certain ​ goals. Easy, right?+
