    After several cycles of download V 2.43 PI, format card, burn new image. I can’t seem to get the OLED display software to install under the Audiophonics section. The audio player shows squeeze player running with the audio card setting of “sydefault-snd_rpi_hifiberry_DAC” The power button works fine after installing it’s script. Each time I do the Display install, reboot, the Audiophonics page tells me the software isn’t running and that I should reinstall it. I have tried activating the software both before and after the display install without any success. Not getting any activity from the display at all. The Audiophonics pages shows the installed audio card as “Audiophonics I-Sabre-V3”. What am I missing?

    Hi Neil,

    Just to be sure, please have a look at our detailed assembly instructions for the bundle: https://www.max2play.com/en/gehaeuse-fuer-oled-display-mit-audiophonics-raspdac/

    Also, to be sure your image is correctly burnt, please try this burner if you are still stuck in the web interface: http://com.odroid.com/sigong/blog/blog_list.php?bid=144

    Furthermore, please check that your license is active in the Settings/Reboot menu. There, you can also check the load of your SD card and whether there is sufficient space in the debug info window.

    Thanks for the detailed response. We will try to recreate the issue and inform you of a solution asap.

    11. July 2017 at 18:10 #29887

    Hey Neil,

    I have tested your setup now and got the same error as you.
    Audiophonics has made some changes to the OLED Display support with the third generation of there I-Sabre V3 DAC, which is very new. But we have fixed this problem now.

    Please update to the latest Beta Version of Max2Play under “settings/reboot” and re-install the Display support. The installation should now take some more time.

    I hope this will also fix your problem.

    11. July 2017 at 18:52 #29889

    Dear Sir,
    Just started testing the “beta”. So far it seems to be working well.
    Kudos for your quick response and hard work.
    Thanks to all involved!
