I have a few things that I have observed!
1. If I by Squeezebox have played a few numbers and then switch on airplay from an Iphone or Ipad, I get no connection to M2P! I have to reboot to get it working.
2. If I have airplay running from my Ipad and „Switch off“ for airplay and try to connect from my iphone, it says that another device is connected! Reboot of M3P is necessary for it to work.
3. When I play music via airplay, my rotary encoder does not work. If I turn the encoder the music stops. It looks like I still have a connection to M2P, but it does not help to disconnect and reconnect again. I have to reboot M2P to get it working again.

You might want to try out the automatic switch for Squeezelite and Shairport, detailed in our Top 5 Tweaks article: https://www.max2play.com/en/2016/11/top-5-tweaks-for-the-optimal-max2play-setup/
Regarding your other issues, please try to detail your steps you have taken so far and your setup so we can help you more accurately.3. Dezember 2016 at 23:42 #24529
Thanks for your help.
1. I found out what was wrong when switching between Squeezebox and Airplay. The case is that I use HW volume and when I’m playing Squeezebox I play with a Master volume setting = 25. When I use Airplay the volume has to be almost 100 on airplay device to hear anything. Then I have to turn Master volume up to 35 to hear airplay.
Now the problem is that when I go back to play on Squeezebox I have to remember to turn down the volume to 25 to avoid blowing off my speakers!
Can I make so that airplay is using HW volume too?
2 and 3. I checked the „Enable I2S-MMAP (Mixerdevice for Soundcards)“ i Raspberry settings and that made the trick:o).

Yes, this should work, shairport also has command line options in the Audioplayer menu. Try it out!17. Januar 2017 at 21:19 #26010
I tried the same settings (-o hw:CARD=IQaudIODAC -V Digital -Q) in Shairport command line option, but it don’t like the „-o“ parameter!
Actually these commands says nothing to me. I’m not very good at commandline programming and linux:(

Please try this command:
Set this dBvalue to use just a portion of the full range of
attenuation offered by a mixer. For example, if a mixer has a
minimum volume of -80 dB and a maximum of +20 dB, you might wish
to use only 60 dB of the 100 dB available. This might be because
the sound becomes inaudible at the lowest setting and unbearably
loud at the highest setting — indeed, many domestic HiFi
systmes have a volume copntrol range of just 60 to 80dB. Another
potential use might be where the range specified by the mixer
does not match the capabilities of the device. For example, the
Raspberry Pi’s DAC that feeds the built-in audio jack claims a
range of 106 dB but has a useful range of only about 35dB. The
setting allows you to specify the maximum range from highest to
lowest. The range suggested for the Raspberry Pi’s built-in
audio DAC, which feeds the headphone jack, is 35. Using it in
this case gives the volume control a much more useful range of
settings. If you omit this setting, the full „native“ range of
the mixer is used.
