ESP32-S3-BOX-3 Connection Error

I followed the procedure to set up the ESP32-S3-BOX-3 to use voice assistant. Everything seemed to go OK but the BOX-3 would not respond to a wake word. I went into ESPHome and saw that the BOX-3 needed to be adapted. I did than and again, everything seemed to go well but still no response to wake work. When I look at the logs in ESPHome, I see a warning that a connection error occured:

After this the log loops with connected and connection error messages.

I am running HA 2024.6.0 on HA Blue.

Anyone have any ideas on how I can troubleshoot this issue?

Thanks.

Yes! And I have yet to find a solution. There have been many helpful people with good suggestions but none of them have resolved this issue for my situation. I have 7 devices in esphome 2 of which are fully functional esp32 devkit v1 voice assistants but this is the only one that throws this error.
If I use Espressif’s LaunchPad, I can re-flash the demo firmware, then run the “ready made project” for the box3 but any attempt to update the yaml to add even 1 sensor after that and it crashes with this error. It continues to work after that but no sensors, sketchy microphone, and very low volume speaker.
I’ve read lots about the successes of other users but it’s not working for me.
By the way, I’m running HA on a Raspberry Pi 4 with 8 gb ram and a 5 amp official Raspberry Pi power supply.

im also having this problem. really dismayed that there seems to be no fix at this point.
