    I asked the same question on the Squeezebox forums and thanks to user ‚bpa‘ the issue is solved. In max2play ‚Audioplayer/Squeezelite/Edit advanced options/Soundcard‘ I needed to select one of the ‚hw‘ options. Now everything is working fine.

    Thank you for getting back to me.

    That’s where I thought it would be but there’s nothing displaying on my screen. Is it RaspberryPi only – I’m running max2play on Odroid.

    That may well be a recommendation but I did ask if it was possible to save that data to an off card USB attached device as it is already available with piCorePlayer. It can be and is being done successfully by other software, the object being to make recovery of LMS in cases of SD card failure much easier and quicker.

    So, is it possible and if so how?

    Thank you

    Just carried out the update and Equalizer now works. Can you let me know what the problem was?

    Thank you for rectifying this issue.

    Hi flysurfer,

    Way back in August I mentioned that Audioplayer/Equalizer on max2play Ubuntu 16.04 doesn’t work. Everything is visible but the sliders did nothing at all. This is still the case – I’m using the latest max2play beta version. Has there been any progress on this.

    In a similar vein, is there any chance of you developing a front end to brutefir in max2play even if it just allows graphic equalisation? Or, if the already included Equalizer can be increased from 10 to 16 channels – assuming it can be persuaded to function?

    Thank you

    I tried out your new m2p Ubuntu 16.04 image and found the same issues…

    1. Audioplayer/Equalizer sliders still not working.

    2. Bluetooth not installing from the plugin. Resolved by installing bluez-Utils from a downloaded deb package before installing the Bluetooth plugin.

    3. Filesystem Mount ’nobootwait‘ parameter has definitely been deprecated in Ubuntu 16.04. Can use ’nofail‘ instead. ’nofail‘ isn’t as good – if a mounted HDD has been disconnected the system halts for a time (I think up to 90 seconds) waiting for the HDD to reconnect. If the HDD is still not present system continues to boot/reboot.

    4. There’s definitely a problem using mate desktop 1.14! Tried installing it 2 more times onto fresh m2p images but each time the desktop became very unresponsive and some GUI’s were washed out and unreadable. Basically unusable so better to leave mate at 1.12.

    Hopefully you will be able to resolver the Equalizer issue.

    Thank you

    Hi again flysurfer,

    I’ve discovered a couple of other issues with the Ubuntu 16.04 LTS max2play install.

    1. After installing ‚alsa‘ in audio player, the graphic Equalizer starts but no adjustments can be made with the sliders.

    2. ‚Install Bluetooth‘ in the Bluetooth plugin errors with…

    „Package bluez-utils is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source
    However the following packages replace it:
    blues“

    So Bluetooth doesn’t start.

    Hope this is helpful

    Bob

    Hi flysurfer,

    I re-imaged an SD card with Odroid-XU4 Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, then, before doing anything else…

    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

    1. Using your latest install_max2play.sh script, installed max2play which then started properly.
    2. Registered max2play, updated to latest max2play then installed latest beta.
    4. Registered my local USB HDD
    3. Installed latest LMS 7.9 and started that without any problems.

    So everything seems to be working well. Thank you 🙂

    I did encounter a problem with a previous attempt at doing this when I updated Mate from 1.12 (which is installed by the odroid image) to 1.14. For some reason this slowed down the XU4 so much as to make it unusable. I didn’t attempt this the second time and everything works well. Don’t know if it was the update to Mate 1.14 that caused the problem but I’ll look at that another time. For now I’m happy with what I have. When I’m happy everything is stable, I’ll make an image of my SD card and burn it to eMMC.

    Many thanks

    Bob

    P.S. I did run into another problem! When I set up my USB HDD in max2play/filesystems my Odroid refused to reboot correctly. The boot process dropped out to the command line with an error stating that it didn’t understand the ’nobootwait‘ parameter. I had to vi /etc/fstab from that command line and remove the parameter and reboot. Then everything was fine. Not sure why because I thought ’nobootwait‘ is standard.

    Hi flysurfer,

    Many thanks for looking into this. Michael Herager (squeezebox forum) has said he put resources for perl 5.22 into LMS but I don’t know if he has done so for ARM or for 32 bit. I look forward to giving your Ubuntu 16.04 LTS image a try when it’s ready.

    Again, many thanks

    Sorry, no edit function for posts so had to add this as a follow up…

    The above question was for Heiner or flysurfer (are they the same person?)

    To reiterate… Where is Imageburner?

    I tried upgrading by selecting the 7.9 nightly from the drop down list. I discovered that it was not intended as a way of upgrading the 7.9 nightly so tried the „alternative other source“ and it worked fine.

    Thank you for your reply

    17. September 2015 at 12:48 #15724

    Solved this myself. Had to copy and paste the url for current nightly into max2play „alternative other source“ then start installation. Is this the way to update LMS or is it a bug?
