Thanks for the detailed feedback and sorry about the late response, I was on holiday until yesterday.
1. The Add-On works with all Pi images. The install link is:
We recommend running the Pi LMS continuously in your local network as the server unit. The Pi has no problem running 24/7 and the power usage is minimal (under 10€ a year with the 3B). However, if you want to securely shut down your Pi, you can schedule the shutdown command with any software you like through the Max2Play http request:
2. You need to reboot the device after renaming it. Is that the issue? Afterwards, your router should reassign the name if the device. If this is not the case, please try to reboot once more. You can also activate the network lookup (free feature in Settings/Reboot) to easily switch between web interfaces of your different Max2Play devices 😉
