    Dear all,
    I recently installed max2play on my PI with Hifiberry Digi+. After playing an album I switched to a new one that the player started to play for 3 seconds after which sound just stopped. When I advance to next song it again starts for a couple of seconds and it stops again.
    When I enter into the logitech media center via web interface, I can see how the song time pointer is jumping back to the beginning, once more tries to play and jumps back to beginning.

    I tried everything from rebooting both the PI as well as the LMS up to upgrading to m2p premium. I get to run it again but when I switch to new album it starts all over again..

    What could the root cause be. Many thanks in advance for your help.

    Info on system:
    Synology with LMS installed
    PI with Hifiberry Digi+
    Controlled by iPeng9 or Squeezebox

    I have the same problem, and the only way to get music to play again is to restart the Pi and rescan the library.

    When I restart my Pi and then rescan the library I’m able to play music for awhile without problem, however if I stop playing music for an extended amount of time and try to play music from my library I then get the symptoms that Sheela described. *Note: Radio never stops working.

    Where is your music stored? I have my music on a thumbdrive plugged directly into the Pi.

    Mine is stored on NAS. Think I have a network problem though with Wifi so I move over to DLan. Am really getting quite tired about this and loose too many hours that I would rather invest in something with more pleasure.

    Hi sheela and funxer,

    how is the audio playback on your Squeezebox Server today? Have you realized the change to DLAN?

    I recommend to check if Kodi was enabled at the same time using the same audio output. Furthermore, you could restart the SBS.
