HI,
did anyone notice that if you use more than 3 multisqueeze instances that instance 0 and instance 3 seem to be the same player but on a difirent output device.
if you change music or volume on instance 0 instance 3 folows the changes also.
i have tryed to change the 4 th instance to the default bcm soundcard and add a 5th instance with the same soundcard options that i wanted for the 4th instance and then again instance 0 and instance 3 seem to be the same player and instance 4 dous what it needs to do correctly.

even after updating all to Version 2.38 for Raspberry PI 3 the same strange link between instance 0 and 3 exists.
also after a few hours of continuos playing a network stream the sound plays double with a minor time delay on instance 0 and 3
no problems on instance 1 , 2 and 4 .

all tips are welcome.

P.S. in prevous post a little type error:
„type the command sudo nano asound.config (this opens the file in an editor)“
correct =
*install the multisqueeze plugin.
set in mediaplayer squeezelite any soundcard exept something from the logilink usb card
i used “equal – equal” (save)
* desactivate autostart squeezelite (save)
*now use a terminal program like “putty” to get acces to your raspberry pi.
*login as pi with password raspberry
type the command cd ..
type the command cd ..
type the command cd etc
type the command sudo nano asound.conf (this opens the file in an editor)

*just paste the next few lines under the existing text

pcm.dshare {
type dmix
ipc_key 2048
slave {
pcm “hw:1”
rate 44100
period_time 0
period_size 1024
buffer_size 8192
channels 8
}
bindings {
0 0
1 1
2 2
3 3
4 4
5 5
6 6
7 7
}
}
pcm.frontx {
type plug
slave {
pcm “dshare”
channels 8
}
ttable.0.0 1
ttable.1.1 1
}
pcm.centerx {
type plug
slave {
pcm “dshare”
channels 8
}
ttable.0.2 1
ttable.1.3 1
}
pcm.backx {
type plug
slave {
pcm “dshare”
channels 8
}
ttable.0.4 1
ttable.1.5 1
}
pcm.surroundx {
type plug
slave {
pcm “dshare”
channels 8
}
ttable.0.6 1
ttable.1.7 1
}

if you want you can change the names frontx centerx backx and surroundx to whatever you want (exept to back because this is seen as a command, just ad an x to be sure)

*save the asound.conf file
reboot
and magicaly the 4 names of the outputs are selectable in your multisqueeze player options.
