Scenes configured to play audio with a tunein station periodically lose all devices and sound and hide, which cannot be edited in the Home application.

Cupertino, November 18, 2021

I have a medium-sized network with two minis, an original homepod and a second-generation AppleTV 4k. Two sonos speakers and a few airport expressions (these are currently off). ** What I tried **: I tried this with different slices of hardware (without AppleTV, without og Homepod, without minis etc) and the behavior seems the same. It seems to happen most often after an update or when adding a device (Hue lights, most recently). I also removed everything, scrapped it and built it from scratch. It happens with or without connected Sonos speakers. ** What's happening **: I have several scenes set to play a radio station (via Apple Music, most are from Tunein) on three speakers (it also happens with scenes set on one speaker). These scenes are placed at certain times of the day with automation, one of which I use to wake me up. When he leaves, I go all the way. Scenes lose all audio devices, and lose the sound to be played (ie to fix it I have to reselect the station). These scenes actually have no devices or actions, so they are not even visible in the home application (although they still exist, making a new scene with the same name fails). To "find" them, I use Eve to add a light to each scene, then they are visible. If I leave the lights on in the scenes, they are easier to find once they are erased, but they seem to be erased more often. I probably have five of these scenes to mimic your own radio station while listening to certain shows (as well as news so podcasts wouldn't work). Has anyone seen anything like this and, if so, how has it been remedied?
