Sound comes out of speaker on iPad remote rather than core output

I have a MacBook Pro as my core. I use the digital output from the MacBook to feed a signal to my amp. I use an iPad mini as my remote. For weeks all was well. However, today when I attempted to play music, my system suddenly had decided to default to the speaker on my iPad rather than the output of my MacBook. How do I reset my system so that It will play from the output of the core.

Sounds like you have the wrong audio zone selected

Hello @Clark_Varnell,

I just wanted to check in with you here and ask if your setup is now working as expected. As @wizardofoz mentioned, it is likely that you have a different zone selected. You can change zones using these instructions and you can use these instructions for a guide on how to enable other zones in case the desired one is not enabled in the Audio Settings. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
