    I installed max2play on a rasp pi3/ hifi berry DAC+ setup. After following the instructions I have still trouble in connecting both to wifi and to bluetooth.
    I have installed the bluetooth addon and choosen the option „Stream to Squeezebox Server“, which I also installed. Following the instructions I activated bluetooth on my mobile and pushed „Scan for bt items“. Under „Known items“ my mobile is listed. My moblie found the bluetooth of the rasp (max2play), but after pairing the build up connection collapses after a few seconds.
    It should be no antenna issue, because the phone is lying close to the rasp.

    Error discription:

    If you connected a Smartphone to stream to Squeezebox Server, NO further setting to your soundcard is needed (do NOT set your soundcard to bluealsa)!

    Hello Mimi,

    This should be a bug which we fixed in our beta. The bug fix will go live soon.

    For now you need to do the following to get it working (announcement):

    thanks for this piece of advice. Now I’m able to connect, but still not perfect. Do I need a internet connection (either via wifi or via cable) while using m2play?

    I did the compleet routine and although green LED on my Hifi Berry shows that it is working, I’ve got now music output to my AV. Any ideas what can be the issue? Any basic settings?

    Thanks and greets

    Hi Mimi,

    You can use it without internet but it needs to either be in Access Point mode or connected to a local network to reachable.

    I assume you mean you have no output? What solution are you using and which documentation did you follow?
    Make sure your audio player is running and has the HiFiBerry selected as output.
