    edit – When starting the Player, the GPIO gets like expected „High“ – but when pausing, it doesn`t get „Low“ 🙁
    Only when turning the Player off, also the Pin gets Low.

    Is there a way to auto turn off the Player when pressing pause=?
    Or is there a plugin available to run a script on pause? – if not how could I write a hook?

    21. September 2018 at 21:57 #38005

    the error message was only like I wrote – see screenshot

    But when updating max2play as well as the Player, now I can save the -G Option & start the Service 🙂

    So solved – thX

    I have a cheap Suptronics X400.
    The volume and the sound quality is good – but is is not possible to get the speaker 100% silent without white noise on standby.

    So I would like to Mute the amp, or disable it when not used,…

    I don`t get how the su user will change my problem.

    My solution was that I gave the default Pi Home Playlist folder following permission

    drwxrwxrwx 19 pi pi 4096 Apr 27 15:05 Music
    so „777“.

    But why don`t you fix the problem of this default path and the running LMS is not allowed to write there in your installation?
    New users may also run into this problem, if they don`t use a NAS and reconfigure the path,…

    I want to post my feedback.
    With the latest Beta „Version Beta-170411 / v1.0.2 based on v1.8.4-726“ I got my Bluetooth Box playing from the Raspberry with max2play and the LMS.

    So I don`t know how you fixed it, but right now it is working when using the Pulse player.
    Confusing is, that you write something from „Pulse Bluetooth“ but in the player settings, never the word „Bluetooth“ is displayed,…

    next try will be to play music via Bluetooth from the Handy to Player 😉

    22. April 2017 at 11:53 #28404

    now I am 100% sure that this is a permission problem!

    Can you tell me under which user the LMS is running?

    The command

    b8:26:eb:c2:81:f0 playlist save RauteMusik
    b8%3A26%3Aeb%3Ac2%3A81%3Af0 playlist save RauteMusik writeError%3A1

    gives me a write error!

    Playlist path

    Thats the reason why I never see playlist files in this folder,…
    And then I understand that I can not load them,…

    I figured out by trying.
    You fist have to choose the right „mode“ on the IQAudio page.
    After choosing the Multiroom setup – everything was fine and the server showed up the player 😉

    12. April 2017 at 18:36 #28186

    I updated to Version Beta-170411 – hope this is the one with the additional debug infos.

    Your command is not working for me 🙁

    I have my IQAudio Soundcard as you noticed but want to use for testing my Bluetooth Speaker.
    So a Profile chooser would be great 😉

    Please tell me what to do neXt,…

    Good to know – the „Command Line Interface“ Documentation from the Server is great.

    I had to telnet to PORT 9090 – maybe you are wrong with 9000?

    Then the play and sleep command is working – but I don`t get the result I would like to, because it stops the music.
    So it doesn`t fade out the music to 30% volume and then fade in to 100%.
    It stops the music and then starts it.

    But let`s see what commands may help me out.

    So I would need a fade-in/out to a specific volume level.


    7. Februar 2017 at 22:30 #26742

    Thanks Mohammad
    your answer would be better in this topic

  • in this topic I would like to know if a fade-in / fade-out script would be possible for the squeezeplayer.

    So please forget about the 2 instances (they are working fine) – now we can focus on 1 player.
    Do you know if there is a fading option available?
    Lets say song A fades out and then song B fades in.


7. Februar 2017 at 22:19 #26740

Thanks for your help – only because of the support – my license fee is worth every singe cent 😉

with the HiFi Berry link you posted in my other topic, I could make it work!
Now I have Multiqueeze running and as Soundcard dmixer.

For sure your integrated dmix option is working for USB Soundcards for mixing 2 players into 1 output.

But like written, it seems that with DACs it is more complicated

The Raspberry Pi ASoc sound subsystem does not allow concurrent access to the sound card from multiple processes


6. Februar 2017 at 21:12 #26702

For me this is sadly not working

When I try to use in the options of the soundcard „dshare – dashare“ I get following error when starting the player

Thanks I will give it a try – with the DAC the sound is much better I can say.
The timeout option 4 sure will do a good job – nice to know this options exists.

6. Februar 2017 at 20:41 #26699

Thanks for your answers.

I would like to use Multisqueeze with 2 instances of players and the output of my DAC x400.

My command line option of the player always was empty.
your 2nd point I can not follow – I can not find „automatic Audio Switch“ 🙁

I am sure with the right asound.conf it is possible to use the DAC also for 4 sources as Output.
Like in Windows, where you can play a game and have a music player running at the same time,…

Would be nice if this configuration option would be implemented, in case it doesn`t already exist.

The HOPE that this feature will work with max2play made me buying a 5 year license 😉
So please help me out.
From 2 Days testing I have to say that I realy like max2play because I could setup things in 1 hour I was struggling around days with piCore or other free solutions,…
