    This is my hardware RPI 3B+ with HiFi Berry DAC+ Pro and 7” touchscreen and Max2Play v247.

    I am new to Max2play thanks for your help.

    Hi willytom,

    Do you have any open ports in your local network?

    Does your Max2Play Image have a Stretch-based kernel (check in Settings/Reboot debug info text, should say stretch instead of jessie)?

    The Max2play is behind the router, so all the ports should be already opened.

    Is a stretch version.

    #### KERNEL ####
    Linux max2play 4.14.76-v7+ #1150 SMP Mon Oct 15 15:19:23 BST 2018 armv7l GNU/Linux

    Sorry, I mean open to the outside. This is an issue for the LMS and we recommend closing any open ports to the internet when operating a Squeezebox Server.

    Does your Health Checker in Settings/Reboot indicate any red parameters?

    What are the ports needed to open for LMS? The health checker is all green.

    Okay, so there are different kinds of ports. For the Pi in the local network, the LMS usually uses port 9000.

    However, open ports, for example for VPNs and the like, are a danger for the LMS. If you have not worked with anything to route a connection outside your local network, you do not need to concern yourself with this.

    It might be, your installation was just somehow faulty. You can try installing anew and keeping the installation running uninterrupted for at least 15 minutes. Try selecting the version 7.9.1.
