5. Phantom without internet

  • Create a network with an airport express

  • Wire Dialog to the electricity. Wire Dialog with an ethernet cable to your airport
  • Connect a computer or phone to the airport's wifi. 
  • Open Spark and follow the previous video that corresponds to your number of Phantom.

6. Switch a bluetooth Phantom to wifi

  • If a Phantom is for the first time set up in bluetooth, you will not be able to play it in wifi anymore. You will then not be able to use the sources such as Spark or Spotify.
  • Start by resetting Phantom
  • Download and open the application Spark from the Devialet website
  • Follow the previous video that corresponds to your number of Phantom.

7. Add a Phantom to a current set up

  • Wire  the new Phantom to the electricity.
  • Open Spark and go to "settings" and click on "reset set up"
  • Wait for all Phantom to play a sound loop
  • When Spark displays "start" Lorsque Spark affiche "start", follow the previous video that corresponds to your number of Phantom.

8. Questions & Answers

  • In Spark i have a screen "Do you have a Dialog" but the system never finds it (Dialog).
    1. This page "do you have a dialog" only appears if the Dialog is not connected to internet. 
    2. First follow these steps: 
      • Unplug and replug the electricity on Dialog and do the same with its ethernet cable
      • Try a different ethernet cable
      • Unplug and replug the electricity on you router
      • Try on your router another ethernet input to connect the Dialog. 
    3. If none of the previous worked, your router seems to block the Dialog's connection. This can be frequent depending on the router provided to you (due to their architecture and securities). You can then consider the following workarounds:
      1. Contact your internet provider and ask them to open the port that the Dialog uses, port 24242 (in TCP and UDP, meaning Dialog receives and sends information via your wifi network)
      2. In order to have an optimal connecte set up, it is recommended to complete a basic internet set up with some network devices such as Apple airport express. These devices can extend or create a network. Creating a network will bypass the limitation of your router.

  • In Spark, the system does not find one or more Phantom
    1. Temporarily plug Dialog and all Phantom on the same powerstripe/power extension, or on the wall plugs of one same wall. NB: the dialog must always be wired to the router. So it will be the Phantom that must be moved temporarily. 
    2. Do a reset of the system.
    3. Follow the previous video that corresponds to your number of Phantom.
    4. In Spark, à la fin de l'installation, vérifiez dans la partie settings > devices que tous les Phantom sont identifié. 
    5. Quittez Spark et déplacez chaque Phantom à la place de votre choix. 
    6. Attendez 1 minute et ouvrez Spark 
    7. Dans Spark, vérifiez de nouveau dans la partie settings > devices que tous les Phantom sont identifié. Un ou plusieurs Phantom peuvent alors être manquant car trop loin du Dialog. 
      • Une fois le Phantom manquant identifié, vous pourrez le rapprocher du Dialog jusqu'à se qu'il soit de nouveau apparent dans Spark > settings > devices. 
      • Vous avez aussi la possibilité de consulter notre article sur l'optimisation de votre installation.

  • In Spark I don't understand the page "Living Room" during the set up (choix des pièces)
    1. Phantom and Spark are a multi-room system, which means you can play in differents area set in your system such as Living room, Garden, Bathroom etc. This allow you to play the same or differents music into rooms.
    2. From this screen, you can configure your rooms and setup:
      1. Ribbon on top is used to swipe between rooms, and below you will find your Phantom
      2. If you have only one Phantom, select the right room and position your Phantom as "mix"
      3. If you have 2 Phantom in the same room, then position one in "left" and one in "right" (everytime you put your finger into the Phantom icons, the selected Phantom will make a sound and move to identify which Phantom you are currently setting up.
      4. If you have more Phantom in the same room you can drag and drop one in "left", one in "right" and one in "mix"
    3. To make the setup you just have to drap and drop the Phantom Icons into the place where you want to set it up

  • In Spark, the application comes back to the first page during the set up
    1. First try the following steps:
      • Unplug and replug the electricity on Dialog and do the same with its ethernet cable
      • Try a different ethernet cable
      • Unplug and replug the electricity on you router
      • Try on your router another ethernet input to connect the Dialog. 
    2. If none of the previous worked, your router seems to push out the Dialog's connection at a specific moment. This can be frequent depending on the router provided to you (due to their architecture and securities). 
    3. This issue is not usual, but if you are impacted, it is recommended to create a private network.

  • After a previous set up, Spark does not find my system (Spark asks "Start")
    1. First try to wire another ethernet cable between Dialog and the router. Quit Spark and retry. 
    2. If Spark asks you to do the set up again, your router pushed out the Dialog's connection at a specific moment. This can be frequent depending on the router provided to you (due to their architecture and securities). Often this happen because your internet provider updated remotely your router. 
    3. If you have this issue it is recommended to create a private network.

  • My network "Phantom set up" does not appear 
    1. Press quickly one time the button on the back of Phantom to force the network creation.
    2. When Phantom moves its woofers, that the signal that the network "phantom set up" is ready.  
    3. If necessary, quit and open again Spark. or try from a different phone/computer. You can also do a reset of Phantom

  • I can't connect to Dialog Setup XXXX
    1. In the list of the wifi networks available at your place, you will see 2 networks named Dialog (one in 2.4ghz, and one in 5ghz). These networks are only used by our systems (information sharing between Dialog and Phantom). Consequently you can't connect on it, and you must keep using your usual wifi network (even for the first set up of Phantom).

  • Is there a Dialog manual?
    • There is no printed manual for Phantom and Dialog, but our knowledge base has all the latest information.
