One of the main reasons for this time out is normally that your router is under attack from hackers outside your local network:
Have you turned on the firewall on your router?
If you have port forwarded nr. 9000 and/9090 turn it off (delete)
Are you running any plugins in Logitech Media Server that needs access to the internet ( like Spotify)
– if yes turn them off one by one and reboot rms and check afterwards in lms log if the issues sill exist (after every plug in you turn off)
Let me hear if this solved your problem13. März 2019 at 22:32 #44767
The Raspberry does not have an internal clock (there is no battery on the Motherboard)
This means that you have to put in the date and clock every time you reboot!!!
You can set the clock manually by downloading the Remote Control Extension:
Inside the extension install shell in a box.
After the setup, login in with:
sudo date -s „Thu Aug 9 21:31:26 UTC 2012“
replace „Thu Aug 9 21:32:26 UTC 2012“ with actual time, timezone and date in your time zone.

Great that you found a solution that worked.
The Pi once needed to be activated before it supported usb. I think by copying the sd-card installation will work fine, but you might have to do that every time you need to reflash it.
Were as Pi3+ and a support a usb stick out of the box, for the Pi3 I would recommend doing an activation before use:
How to activate Raspberry Pi 3 to support Boot from USB Stick
Install the latest Raspbian on a SD Card
On Raspberry Pi:
sudo nano /boot/config.txt
scroll down to the bottom of the page and add the line:
Open the SD-card boot drive on your PC/MAC
open the file config.txt with you built in text editor
Scroll down to the bottom and add:
Inset the sd-card in the Pi.
Boot up the Pi
Reboot the Pi
after the reboot shout down the Pi.
You can now use the usb stick and it should work with out any problems.9. März 2019 at 23:55 #44723
Now I get it.
It is not possible to add the link for individual players to the main menu by default. The closest you can get is adding the „choose player“ menu to the main menu: press and hold the text in Settings: „choose player“, when settings screen pops up choose: „add to start menu“

I would like to come with some suggestions, however I need some info about your set up.
How do you store your music? (on a hard drive connected to Rasperry Pi or a NAS or ?)
It sounds to me that you only have one touch display with Jivelite but more than one child, were do you want to put the Jivelite control so your children has access to it at the same time??
What music setup does your children have at present ? (bluetooth speakers or a pi with speaker connected or ?)

Hi Dave Im sorry it’s not you it’s me…..
To do permissions you have to be in „system mode“ called root. let’s do it once again note my added line:
We change user from pi to root
chmod -R 775 /media/usb0
chown -R pi:pi /media/usb0
after the reboot; „notice you are back in „pi“ (user) mode“ go back to your usb0 folder
you should now se folders and/or files who are stored on your hard drive.
If this is the case open your Logitech media server and go to the settings page. Check that the server is set to scan the /media/usb0 folder and do a complete scan.
It should work now!!

Ok I leaned something here that I wasn’t aware of. drives formatted in fat has smaller identifying numbers than NTFS NFS formatted drives hmmm also fat formatted drives doesn’t really show that number.
Every partition (part of a drive) has a uniq identifying number called UUID. I wanted to see the distribution of all drives and their
id’s however your shorter UUID number turns out to be OK. I then wanted to hold your UUID up to the fstab to see in the drives registration had gone wrong which isn’t the case.
Your UUID doesn’t show up because linux hide fat UUID’s in the way we checked. I don’t think that there is anything wrong in this direction ….. let’s focus on what Heiner said about special rights or restrictions on your files.
In linux folders have to have permissions and a owner assigned to them before you can access them. Luckily we do not have to do that manually to every folder and file. In the following code we assign permission to the user (pi=the one you are locked into):
go to the Remote control plug-in
First we set the permission to allow all users to read and write (but only Adm to execute files by the number 775) in the folder usb0 and every folder and file with in that folder (-R)
chmod -R 775 /media/usb0
Next we tell the system who owns the folders and files with in the usb0 folder user (pi) aswell as group (pi)
chown -R pi:pi /media/usb0
after the reboot go back to your usb0 folder
you should now se folder or flies who are stored on your hard drive.
If this is the case open your Logitech media server and go to the settings page. Check that the server is set to scan the /media/usb0
and do a complete scan.
Let me hear if that worked!

Go to the tab „Settings/Reboot“ in max2play.
Scroll down to the blue bar „A List of max2plays extensions can be found here“ and open it.
find the „Plugin Remote Control“ and open it
Click on Download to the right and copy the link
go back to „Settings/Reboot“ tab, below the blue bar
Paste the link in „Enter http-URL“ and hit install
go to the new tab on top „Remote Control“
In here you have to click somewhere to install it (mine is already up and running)
After that here is a window on the page or you can open a new page.
put the code from above in there!2. März 2019 at 8:46 #44604
I think your UUID is to short. Install the plugin remote control and set it up (if you haven’t all-ready done so.
copy paste the result in here
next: I would to se if your system has set your hard drive to properly start after reboot:
in the remote control plug in Type:
sudo nano /etc/fstab
and copy paste the results in here!

Custom Clock is one of Erlands many plugins.
All Erlands plugins are now free of charge, so you shall uninstall the license Manager check if custom clock works there after.
If that doesn’t help, visit the official support forum an make a search for Custom Clock: click here

You are not alone, I too would like a simple funktion to steam my Lp’s to the rest of the house. It has to do with the Logitech Media Server and the way it handles music in !! in your case it might also need a driver from HiFi Berry.
People over at the LMS Forum has have luck with streaming to the Server as a „Radio Station“ in Flac quality, there’s a plugin for LMS for wave in in LMS you can read an participate in booth here: Click and here click and there are many more under the topic: Waveinput

You don’t need a registration code your email is your code.
Download the max2play image and burn it to your SD card.
Choose if you want to login via wifi (access point) or lan or WPS. Read more here: Click
When you are in, find the Settings/Reboot tab and fill in the email you used for registration…. Here is a „Walkthrough for Beginners“ :Clik here
Ask here in the forum if you have any problems and we will try to help..

Raspbian which runs under max2play doesn’t support expansion of a USB Stick, therefore you will be stocked with a stick of 4gb (which) is the max size of the installation. You will therefore most likely run out of space sooner or later. There are 2 way to expand the second partition either run an app called Gparted on a SD card or 2nd usb (as it doesn’t work on the same drive were you system is installed so this is not an option for max2play. Secondly, the manual way which I have described below. As you can see it involves serval reboots and a knowledge of the size of the first partition….. It will take more than a plugin to get running. Maybe Heiner can confirm that !!
Until Raspberry PI fully support USB sticks you can follow the manual method below, if you want.
I haven’t tested all the plugins, I assume that the home-automation plugins wont work running from a USB Stick. You will need to check that with their homepage.
The Raspberry Pi 3b has indirect support for booting from a usb-flash. You need to activate it on the Pi first.
Follow this guy if you haven’t prepared your Pi 3b: Click here
After that you can install the max2play on to your usb stick with Etcher (balenaEtcher)
Extent your root directory
Make sure that you have no other flash devices connected
In the remote control plugin type:
sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade
sudo fdisk /dev/sda
type p (to list the partition table)
You will now see something like this:
Take a note of the number at column 2 (Start), row 2 (/dev/sda2)
type d (to delete a partition)
type 2 (partition number)
type n (to create a new partition)
For the first sector on the new partition set in the start number in column/row 2 you noted earlier
leave it black just [ENTER] (the highest end number will be auto added)
When it asks you something about not to keep the EXT4 format type no
type w (to save the changes)
After the reboot go back to the remote plugin and type:
sudo resize2fs /dev/sda2
sudo reboot (again)
with the command: df -h can you see the new size of your root device
