    It’s actually quite simple, only one server is needed. All the others can be players (the server can also run a player at the same time if needed)
    Every Pi has to have its own playername (can be changed in the settings / reboot tab.)
    max2playserver for the server
    max2playroom1 for the first player
    max2playroom2 for the second player
    Just make sure to choose a different name for each Pi.

    Once the server and all the players are up and running, go to the webinterface of the logitech media server.
    In the top right corner, there is a drop-down menu from where you can select each player.

    Thats it, all players are running with the same server.

    You can also choose to synchronise 2 players to play always at the same time.

    Found another small thing:
    After checking for an update, i got this message:
    It says May2Play, not Max2Play.

    (Latest version: 2.34, 2 x Raspberry Pi 3 with and without 7″ screen)

    Try a different browser, the IE won’t work for me either.
    Firefox (48.0 64-bit) and Chrome (52.0.2743.116 m 64-bit) do work.

    Nice addon, will for sure be usefull.
    Just a few things:
    The installation (normal, not the beta) would not update the website, after the click on „Install ShellInABox“.
    It just ends up looking like this:

    After reloading the page manually, it’s installed. (Worked on one of my two raspberrys at the first try, for the second one, i had to click „Install ShellInABox“ again)

    Once it’s installed, i had to open the console in fullscreen to get the button to add an exception. In the small box, the button won’t show up. After adding the exception, it also works in the small box.

    It’s working fine so far, i just noticed a small bug: Certain keys won’t work. For example the minus key left of r-shift.

    Just some info about my 2 systems:
    Testet in Firefox 48.0
    2 x Raspberry Pi 3, Max2Play 2.34 (non beta)
    Both with the latest kernel and packages: „Linux max2play 4.4.16-v7+ #899 SMP Thu Jul 28 12:40:33 BST 2016 armv7l GNU/Linux“ (Updated both from the „Raspberry Settings“ page.)

    Wieso muss es umbedingt das Squeezeplug Image sein?
    Das „Max2Play Raspberry Pi Image“ funktioniert einwandfrei mit dem Pi 3 und bietet ebenfalls den Logitech Media Server und Squeezelite als Player.

    (Alles über ein Webinterface leicht einzustellen)

    Wäre auch dafür. Hätte sogar schon etwas zum posten.

    Good idea. I could already post something.

    Raspberry Pi custom Case

    25. Mai 2016 at 21:05 #20296


    It’s quite simple, i’ll show you how to do it with a raspberry pi. Should also work with any other device running max2play, just the username / password might be different.
    Get the tool „putty“ and open it.
    Insert the ip of your device or try it with max2play or whatever name you have given your device. (Leave the port 22 as it is)
    If this is your first connection, you may have to confirm a message which might show up.
    A new window should now open up asking you for a username. Enter „pi“ (without „), hit enter and insert the password „raspberry“ (also without the „).
    Now you are almost finished. Just copy and paste (a simple right click will paste it into the putty window) the line you got in the update info from your server eg.:
    sudo dpkg -i /var/lib/squeezeboxserver/cache/updates/logitechmediaserver_7.9.0~1463151428_arm.deb
    and execute it. It may take a few seconds but once you can enter a new command its finished.

    I’ve updated my LMS a few times and it was and never a problem. In case you are afraid to loose anything, just create a backup-image of your SD-card so you can restore it anytime. (im using the „USB Image Tool“ for backups)

    Ja das klappt zwar und war mir auch schon bewusst, aber irgendwie ist es halt komisch, wenn das root Passwort nicht mehr das gleiche wie im vorherigen Image ist.
    Man braucht es zwar höchst selten, aber wenn es dann nicht klappt steht man nunmal doof da.

    Zumal die Doku bezüglich des root Passwortes ohnehin sehr dürftig ist.

    Gleiches Problem bei mir.
    Folgendes funktioniert nicht:

    user: root
    pw: max2play

    Bei der Version 226 auf meinem Raspberry Pi Model B hat es noch funktioniert, aber mit der 229 auf meinem Raspberry Pi 3 klappt der Login nicht mehr.

    Irgendwas läuft hier falsch.

    Die Antwort ist doch denkbar einfach. Hätte nicht gedacht, dass das hier wirklich keiner weiß.

    Da ich nicht so gemein sein will, hier die Info wie es klappt:
    Einstellungen => Anzeige => Bildschirmschoner => „Bei Wiedergabe“ / „Wenn angehalten“ / „Wenn aus“ => „Blank screen“ einstellen und schon geht der Bildschirm nach ein paar Sekunden aus. Die gewünschte Zeit kann unter „Verzögerung“ angepasst werden.

    Der Logitechmediaserver hat bereits eine Weboberfläche.
    Ich hab hier einen Raspberry Pi 3 mit dem LMS. Dient zur Steuerung einer „echten“ Squeezebox und 2 Raspberrys mit Squeezelite.

    Die Weboberfläche erreichst du einfach über die IP bzw. den Playernamen im Browser. also z.B. „http://max2play:9000/“

    Btw: Der Raspberry Pi 3 mit 7″ Touchscreen funktioniert ebenfalls, HDMI ist hier nicht notwendig.
