    Do I need to download fresh on a SD card or can I update to this latest Beta within my current Settings?

    • This reply was modified 6 months, 1 week ago by  dcsooner.
    10. Januar 2018 at 11:45 #33337

    Hi dcsooner,

    Sorry about the late reply.

    You need to download a fresh image as the Stretch one is completely new from the ground up. We included a new Kodi version, made new solutions for Access Point, WiFi, Bluetooth, etc.

    13. Januar 2018 at 14:59 #33393

    Hello Heiner,

    Has the fixed-LAN setup been fixed in the new image? I still have problems that I cannot always get back the current IP address after a shutdown.
    In addition, will it be possible (maybe in the near future) to add the ‚read-only‘ option for the SD card when using the Logitech server?
    That would be very useful to avoid corruption of the SD card when the power to the Raspberry is accidently cut prior to a proper shutdown command.
    Anyway, I will download and install the Stretch version, and I will notify you when ’new‘ problems are detected.
    Best regards from The Netherlands,

    Tom

    16. Januar 2018 at 14:55 #33476

    Hi Tom,

    First of all thanks for the support and active participation in our forums and in Max2Play! 🙂

    The fixed IP is something we do not necessarily recommend as a lot of parameters vary based on the network you have. But we hear your request and will look into possible improvements for future updates.

    The read-only for LMS is currently not achievable as the LMS needs to constantly have write access to function properly.

    Thanks again for testing the new image, I look forward to your feedback.

    Raspberry Pi Zero W
    Issue with Jivelite.
    Jivelite working correctly, but I cannot select option: „Autohide Panel (Taskbar) and set Jivelite to Fullscreen:“
    With this error: „Function not available – Desktop Manager Files not found – You need to start Jivelite once before this function can be used.“
    I tried insert this settings in to ~/.config/openbox/lxde-rc.xml, but it is ignored.

    startx was started from two sessions:
    1. rc.local (/opt/max2play/start_audioplayer.sh)
    2. /etc/init.d/lightdm (solved: touch /etc/init/lightdm.overide )

    22. Januar 2018 at 14:09 #33587

    Hi Arci,

    Thanks for letting us know, we will try to recreate the issue and find a fix.

    26. Januar 2018 at 2:33 #33659

    Hi I’ve tried new M2P Stretch image and it works great for LMS .. Much faster then before..
    But I wanted also install additional application to run alongside: Kanboard. (https://kanboard.org/)
    Any chance someone could guide me on how to install it on Max2Play Stretch?
    I’ve managed before on OSMC but instructions provided don’t work on this image..
    (https://github.com/kanboard/kanboard/blob/master/doc/en_US/debian-installation.markdown)

    Kanboard is supported on Linux Debian 9 and it works with :
    Sqlite >= 3.7
    Mysql >= 5.5

    I believe Mysql is used by Max2play already.. as is PHP and Apache..
    Any guide advice would be much appreciated.
    Many thanks

    I just gave it a test drive and I encountered 2 problems:

    I wasn’t able to install the LMS Shairtunes2W (fork) plugin on Stretch. Plugin page in LMS said „couldn’t load plugin“. Probably some dependency issue.

    I couldn’t restore the Squeezebox settings I had exported on my old installation. I just found out it doesn’t work on plain new Jessie Lite installation either. The max2play web-interface accepts und uploads the settings file on Strech (and Jessie Lite). After the upload no yellow status information is given. No settings are imported or applied at all. LMS behaves like a fresh installation. I tried uploading the prefs file without having installed LMS and also having installed LMS already as well as running and also not running LMS while uploading the prefs file. Didn’t make a difference.

    The Shairtunes2W plugin is a killer for me, so I went back to the Jessie Lite image.

    Hi,

    This beta has worked really well as a Bluetooth player connected to the Squeezebox server on my NAS.

    However, I installed Squeezebox server on the Pi, then added a mountpoint to my NAS’s music folder. Once I reboot, the Pi goes offline and I can no longer access it via the network, even if I pull the plug and reconnect it. This is over LAN. I’ve replicated the issue twice. I thought maybe it was just scanning the library for a long time, but even after a day of running it was inaccessible.

    30. Januar 2018 at 17:57 #33762

    Hi guys,

    Thanks so much for the feedback! I will keep updating the first post with issues we were able to recreate and are looking into. I will also try to recreate all your issues and give feedback as soon as I can. 🙂

    31. Januar 2018 at 15:59 #33776

    Hi guys,

    Some updates:
    – We fixed shairtunes2 and Jivelite issue in our newest beta, a beta update should fix both.
    – Squeezebox Server currently works with the version 7.9 Nightly, not 7.9 proper.

    @sf:
    Could you share the parameters of your mountpoint, tell us your NAS model and whether you had this issue with another version of Max2Play too?

    31. Januar 2018 at 19:53 #33778

    Hi,

    I have been able to recreate it on the Jessie build, too, so it must be related to a change on my NAS. Disregard. I will take that issue to the correct post.

    I will try this new Stretch Beta this week.

    Thanks for the update.

    1. Februar 2018 at 13:06 #33790

    @sf: Thanks for the follow-up, let us know if you find anything else.

    @jaca: we have not experience with this software but we would recommend using the Jessie-based current image and the Plugin Builder for further guidance.

    12. Februar 2018 at 0:55 #33947

    Hello. I’ve got a very simple setup – Squeezelite on RPi3, with streaming from LMS on another device, and the RPi3 playing to a bluetooth speaker. Wifi and bluetooth are onboard. I’m having a problem with bluetooth. I initially set it up with a particular bluetooth speaker and it worked fine when I specified the Soundcard option to „bluetooth – Your Bluetooth device ***“ where *** was the MAC of the speaker I connected. But subsequently no other bluetooth or pulse options are shown, and this stops me connecting to other speakers with different MACs, and actually squeezelite itself now won’t start the Soundcard specified as „bluetooth“.

    12. Februar 2018 at 13:46 #33958

    Hi majones,

    Are you using the Stretch Beta of Max2Play? BT is still a work in progress there. Generally, you have to select „pulse“ Bluetooth input and output. For discussing Bluetooth in general, please refer to a relevant topic.

    12. Februar 2018 at 15:02 #33960

    Hi Heiner. Yes, I’m trying the Stretch Beta of Max2Play and don’t get the Soundcard option „Pulse – PulseAudio Sound Server,“ per the stable Max2Play version. I do get „Bluetooth – Your Bluetooth device 40:EF:4C:FF:03:22“ but don’t recognise the MAC, but presumably it is the onboard BT chip? If I then pair with my BT speaker and try to start SqueezeLite, it won’t start and gives the message:

    Trying to launch … NOT successful Click here to show detailed information
    ../../../src/asound/../shared/ctl-client.c:102: Connecting to socket: /var/run/bluealsa/hci0
    ../../../src/asound/../shared/ctl-client.c:214: Getting transport for 40:EF:4C:FF:03:22 type 1

    [12:51:41.000552] output_init_common:382 unable to open output device

    Not sure if this is a beta issue or a BT issue?

    13. Februar 2018 at 15:53 #33983

    Hi majones,

    Thanks for reporting. It’s a little bit of both. We are also currently checking out another solution for BT under Stretch. 🙂

    User Nymphen96 reported issues with the RPi Camera Plugin. We will look into it.

    6. März 2018 at 9:26 #34234

    After a lot of issue trying to re install regular version, I tried the beta which works pretty well expected some points.
    I use it with a rpi3, official 7″ just as a squeezebox replacement. (wired, I do not use WiFi)
    I downloaded the last version and, sadly, Jivelite option “Autohide Panel (Taskbar) and set Jivelite to Fullscreen:” not working.
    Mounting a usb stick is not working too (just to show some pictures from the stick)
    And I tried the power button, not working too. Sadly, the lcd screen is always open.

    The library scan was much more speedy than the regular version. About 30% more speed to finish the scan :

    Here are my versions I use :
    Logitech Media Server Version : 7.9.1 – 1519287262 @ Thu Feb 22 09:23:41 CET 2018

    Version de la base de données : DBD::SQLite 1.34_01 (sqlite 3.7.7.1)

    Was is the next step, is it possible to use the „update beta of max2play function ?. How can I know if there is a new beta build ?

    Hi Phillipe,

    Thanks for sharing! We will inspect these issues and try to recreate and fix them.

    8. März 2018 at 14:48 #34281

    Thx.
    I’ve seen that in the next update, you fixed the screen which is in „full mode“ for Jivelite.What a good job. The power button doesn’t function properly right now, as well as the screensaver.
    Good luck, I will continue to test and let my records on the forum.

    Hi,

    I can’t get any version of Max2play, including the latest Stretch beta image to boot on a RPI 3 Model B+. A freshly downloaded version of Raspian boots just fine, and the beta works fine with my RPI 3 (as before).

    Any ideas what needs to be done to patch together a bootable version? I am keen to see if the Gbe interface boosts scanning performance.

    Thanks,
    Alex

    Scratch that – am trying a kernel update, and update/upgrade – didn’t realise that a new kernel was needed for new SoC…

    I just tried to install the max2play stretch beta on my pi zeroW.
    After 15 minutes there is still no max2play wireless network showing up.
    I can connect with an ethernet adaptor / cable plugged in to my mac and share my internet connection that way but I don’t see any info in this thread which says that the auto wifi max2play network doesn’t work.

    To make sure that the pi is behaving and that the wifi is within reach I burned an sd-card with the standard max2play image and that started up a max2play wifi network within 5 minutes.

    Sincerely,
    Hawley Waldman

    The newest beta image do not boot on pi3 b+.

    Boot the image in a pi2 and update all does not help.

    What can i do?

    Hi Frank,

    We will release the updated Stretch Image with updated Kernel for Raspberry Pi 3B+ very soon!

    I am putting together a blog article, testing the final version for any bugs and getting ready for release as we I write this 😉

    In the interim, my workaround was as follows:

    Download the current stretch beta image and flash to a card
    Boot the SD card in an RPI
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    Use the kernel update facility in the gui.
    Boot sdcsrd in RPI 3b+ – all should be well.

    Thanks for sharing, Alex!

    @philippe: Which Power Button are you referring to?
