    I am using a Raspberry Pi4 8GB model as a stand alone Logitech Media Server with USB HD attached . I use the Beta version of Max2play so that I could update the LMS version to 8.0 . However I have noticed that the current LMS Version is 8.1 (with 8.2 a Beta version) . Over the last few weeks every other day my LMS will advise there is an newer version of LMS to download but the only 8.0 version offered is logitechmediaserver_8.0.1~1608617100_arm.deb which was from 22/12/2020 . Is it possible to update the LMS version to 8.1 ? Can I just copy the latest 8.1 Arm deb and insert it ? Will I need to do this each time or will you be offering the 8.1 version as an addition to the nightly updates ?

    dpkg -i /var/lib/squeezeboxserver/cache/updates/logitechmediaserver_8.1.1.deb

    or Logitech Media Server Version: 8.2.0 – 1610082250 @ Fri Jan 8 07:26:02 CET 2021

    Thanks for that I was able to cut and paste this in to the update version bar on Max2play . Will I need to do this every time or will the versions 8.1 and 8.2 be added to the max2play update list ? If this is only done when using max2play in beta version that would be fine as those using this will know there may be issues .

    Also while I can see these updates under the slimdevices nightly downloads they are not the complete wget links you have added , where could I find these full links ?

    Hi Bencat,

    We have now made the other Squeezebox Server versions ready for installation again. You can find them when you perform a beta update of Max2Play. Please note, however, that some of the new versions have not yet been tested by us.
