So Amazon Alexa is built in the Yamaha YAS 209, but to get it working, configuration is required via mobile phone. Alexa app tells you to first of all download the mobile Yamaha MusicCast app and from there setup the device.
Step 1, power on soundbar, success!
Step 2, press Connect button (the round circled one) for 5 seconds, success! (Wifi indicator is flashing)
Step 3, go to Wifi settings and connect to network "MusicCastSetup". then return to MusicCast app, FAIL!

There is no Wifi named "MusicCastSetup", the only one I see is called "SoundBarSetup_D1BD", and MusicCast app doesn't seem to accept this, just saying "not detected"

How do I proceed? I see other people on Youtube having Alexa working on Yamaha YAS soundbars. I am getting a bit frustrated being stuck at this step. On Youtube video Amazon Alexa was in the Yamaha Controller app, but i can only see Spotify, Blueooth, TV, HDMI....

Anyone got ideas? Thanks in advance!
