Since I started using max2play I have problems with wifi setup on a Raspberry 3. Initally I started with release 241 and I couldn’t connect to a wifi with a hidden SSID. The issue was never solved.
Today I have downloaded 244 and I expected to have the wifi issues solved. I have discovered the new setup process with the hotspot mode and this is great, but the Max2Play cannot find the wifi SSID. The SSID is visible, but it’s not discovered by Max2Play.
As happened before with 421 release, Max2Play doesn’t work setting my wifi SSID manually.
This is very disappointing. The hardware works perfectly with other sw Raspberry free distributions, but not with Max2Play.
Thanks for your help.

Thanks for your quick answer. Finally I could set-up one wifi lan. Firts I shared my phone wifi and could use this network activate max2play. After that, I scanned wifi networks again and my 2,4GHz SSID was discovered. Not the 5GHz SSID.
Now I and using this 2,4GHz SSID. My phone discovers 4 SSIDs and Max2Play only 2. I do not know if the built-in adapter is compatible with 5GHz networks. Do you know it?
Now I am experiencing problems starting the squeezebox server. The message is always the same „Trying lo launch… NOT successful. Detailed information sudo: no tty present and no askpass program specified“
Thanks for your help.

I do not know what is the proper version. LMS v.7.9.0 OR Nightly 7.9. I have reflashed the SD card again but the result is the same. Furthermore I don’t know if I can install one version and after the other. I did this before with the same results. I am going to re-flash the SD card twice more, one trying LMS v.7.9 and the other Nightly 7.9
I have experienced the same issues with the wifi. It’s is not working fine. When I start, in AP mode, I can only join to my mobile phone wifi. My wifi connection is not showed after the scan.
After being connected to the phone wifi, I re-scan the networks and my network SSID is showed and I can join it. Clearly there are problems with the built-in wifi adapter and Max2Play.

Sorry about the inconvenience, obviously this should be much simpler.
– By proper I meant non-nightly. Both work fine but the nightly recently changed its repo which resulted in the first error message you posted. This is fixed now and both versions should install fine.
– The WiFi should work out of the box but the Pi’s antenna is not the greatest. Perhaps try connecting nearby your router for first setup. You can also try using WPS for connecting.
– There’s a difference between our beta image and our beta update. Beta version is based on Raspbian Stretch while beta update just adds our most recent bug fixes and changes which have not been officially released yet. However, LMS install should not even require a beta update at this point.
Please check your free space to rule it out as an error. You can see it in the Settings/Reboot Debug Info. You can also check the Health Checker there to make sure your Pi is running fine.
