    Hi guys,

    the default persmissions on the current release (244) are not set correctly and the RADIOs would for example fail to play.
    A chown and an update of the DB seems to fix the issue:


    sudo chwon -R mpd:audio RADIO/

    mpc update

    I suspect the same happens also when USB are mounted. Hopefully you can confirm this.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi JustBoom,

    Thanks for the heads-up! We definitely test this and let you know whether we can recreate the issue.

    However, as a moderator, we would advise you to post in the specific mod’s forum in order to get a direct response from us and have a more open, direct communication.

    Thank you.

    Although default installed radio stations should work, there might be issues when adding new stations. I added the fix to the current Beta and it will also be set automatically in version 2.45.

    Thanks for the report!
