    I just installed the Max2Play image on the PI and it runs, no problems at all everything works fine!
    (except te lack of US keyboard configuration)
    I had connected a usb keyboard and HDMI screen for installation.
    But I like to use the configuration on my boat.
    Is it possible to startup the configuration just by power on, without interference of
    keyboard, screen or smartphone, only by use of the Duets remote??

    Hi Bob,
    Sorry about the US keyboard problems, we are working on it.
    Regarding your application on a boat, I would suggest using the Access Point feature if you do not have a local network on the boat. With this plugin and a WiFi Stick you can access the Max2Play device with any other WiFi-compatible device. The whole system is set up to be headless, so the absence of a screen and keyboard should not impede on any features of Max2Play. You can control the system in any browser or with any apps for the Squeezebox. The Duet remote unfortunately is not supported under Max2Play.

    On my boat I have a network,so I prefer using ethernetcables. A pity that
    I still have to use some browser or a smartphone or keyboard to start up
    the LMS server. At home the LMS runs on a QNAP NAS and with a simple power
    up the server starts. I hoped that this was possible with Max2Play too. I
    wonder if there is no work around to do that with the Raspberry (it is just
    passing the login info and starting up the server..
    Once this is done I can use the SQB touch or the Duet,no problem with that.

    Hi Bob,
    I do not really understand your problem with our Squeezebox Server’s autostart. It does start automatically when booting if you have the tick on the autostart in SBS-menu. In the newest version of M2P you can even designate a delay in seconds for the autostart upon boot for SBS.
