I just wanted to let you know that the LMS 7.9 was released yesterday (again, huge thanks to mherger for the great work). We implemented it in our current beta and it already works with the Max2Play OS!
If you want to install this version, first make the beta update in our Settings/Reboot menu. Then, head to the Squeezebox Server menu and the selection will be have added the version 7.9 to install.
Here are some of changes that come with this version:
More flexible access to your beloved music collection:
*Customizable browse modes
*Direct access to other source (LMS or UPnP)
*Playback of local tunes without adding them to the library
User interface improvements:
* Fast live search in the web UI
* Full text search: type the track name, find the album(s) it’s on etc.
* Play music which is not on your LMS system by dragging the music files to the web UI
* Allow browsing your music folder while the scanner is running
* Don’t stop the music when running a full wipe & rescan
* Increased scanning speed, in particular with larger collections
* „Don’t Stop The Music“: automatically continue the music listening when your playlist comes to an end
* Improved support for streaming from https resources
* Improved overall performances
* Tons of bug fixes
For a full list of all changes, head to the Change Log14. März 2017 at 23:52 #27739
Just updated to max2play beta and installed 7.9 with no problems. Works great!15. März 2017 at 12:19 #27743
Great to hear! If you encounter any issues or have any other feedback, please let us know.8. Juni 2019 at 10:56 #45637
Squeezebox is updated to 7.9.2, it seems. – is it possible to get this version on Max2play?
When I try to install latest nightly 7.9 all.deb package, it fails.
7.9.1 is OK, but I would like to try the new features 🙂

Thanks for asking, you can actually always install a new version of the Squeezebox Server if its compatible with our Raspbian (stretch with 4.19 kernel at the moment) and in the .deb format.
The 7.9.2 is still in the beta folder at the slimdevices ressources and I cannot find an official release thread in the forums either. So I think it’s still not officially out. However, you can try installing the new version by pasting the link in our installer in the web interface. Make sure you give the installer a lot of time (ca 15 minutes) to ensure it installs correctly. I check and this link worked for me with the newest version of Max2Play (2.48 image): Link12.

Odd, as I said it worked for me with a new test image (you have to wait a bit longer than usual).6. Juli 2019 at 14:53 #46173
I have succesfully updated to version 2.50 on my Raspberry 2, and then I tried to update my squeezebox server to latest nightly build by using the dropdown menu and this link: http://downloads.slimdevices.com/nightly/./7.9/sc/6a6440dc801e31915ec04df28e4c1494ec121931/logitechmediaserver_7.9.2~1562310110_arm.deb
.. but the pi just reverts to the old 7.9.1 when download finishes. Should I uninstall 7.9.1 before upgrading?
I have tried both arm.deb and all.deb packages, since you are linking to the all.deb in the post above.
Thanks, Lars8. Juli 2019 at 9:37 #46178
The download is just part of the install process. Did the whole process take more than three minutes? What were the final lines of yellow text?8. Juli 2019 at 16:30 #46199
Please paste the error message here.13. Juli 2019 at 19:17 #46307
Sorry for the response time, I have been away for a few days.
Please see screenshot here This is the message after the download.

You forgot the /./ part of the link, I tested it again with the link above and it worked again. Here it is: http://downloads.slimdevices.com/nightly/./7.9/sc/6a6440dc801e31915ec04df28e4c1494ec121931/logitechmediaserver_7.9.2~1562310110_arm.deb15. Juli 2019 at 15:59 #46317
Thanks for your help, but I think I have used valid links. This time I tried with your link and recorded my screen. Go to this link and skip the first 45 seconds or so.
It seems that the software downloads correctly but then something stops it from installing correctly?16. Juli 2019 at 11:03 #46328
You’re right, very odd. If you have a second SD, can you try recreating the issue with a fresh image to find out if the problem might be connected to your hardware or network?17. Juli 2019 at 13:16 #46347
If you want the newest version, we recently released a beta for the buster image. You can also use our standard image, both are as up to date as can be.
Our preconfigured images on Class 10 microSD cards (recommended speed class) start at 12,99€ and you can select which license and size you want.
Please use the shutdown button in the Settings menu before removing the power supply to make sure you don’t damage the SD card.21. Juli 2019 at 15:34 #46435
I burned a fresh image and managed to get the latest nightly 7.9 installed and everything seems to be ok except for one thing:
I noticed that the usb-harddrive is not powered down when squeezebox is idle . How can I fix this?
Sorry for hijacking this thread …
Thanks Lars22. Juli 2019 at 11:42 #46442
Idle default is 180 secs. However, Squeezelite does not access the HDD, only the server and it might be reindexing the library at the you would expect it to go idle.1. Februar 2020 at 11:25 #47975
I installed as lms the 7.9 nightly. Do I have also possibility like in normal 7.9 to add song files for direct play eg. from usb Stick without being them in library before?23. März 2020 at 14:39 #48211
Yes, the nightly does not have many differences from the official release of 7.9. However, we recommend using the stable, official 7.9 instead of nightly.31. März 2022 at 20:16 #52164
Perhaps I should add that in the M2P web interface, „Show available Versions“ doesn’t display anything. I have tried loading into the field „Alternative source from Slimdevices“ the address for builds for LMS 7.3 and for LMS 8.2, but neither of them installs successfully.
I see reference on the Forum to use of LMS 8 under M2P, but I don’t know if this includes the Allo Sparky. And the links to LMS 8 seem broken.
Any help would be appreciated. I have a bug with LMS 7.1 where the speakers go silent but the woofer continues playing.
