I've had the XR500 for about two weeks. I immediately white listed some friends and we didn't have any issues connecting through PSN chat or with them joining my party in CoD: WW2 on PS4. This was with Filtering Mode enabled and them being outside of the Geo-Filter range. We didn't have any issues for about a week. For the last week or so, we've had issues with both PSN chat and partying up in CoD: WW2. For us to be able to connect, I have to either temporarily enable spectating mode or expand the Geo-Filter so that they are in range. Once we've connected in PSN chat or they are in my party in CoD, I can then re-enable Filtering mode or un-expand the Geo-Filter and we can play as normal.
This doesn't appear to be working as intended as my understanding is that I shouldn't have to take those steps if my friends are white-listed or on the allow list. Am I wrong? Thoughts?
