    Hi Alex

    Thanks for your reply. Glad yours is still up and running/driving.

    Basically, I am thrilled with the Pi and Cirrus Wolfson setup. I just think that being able to run it without my home network would be the „icing on the cake“. I can’t say I’ve ever had any issue with pops or clicks, except when trying out Airplay. That was a stuttering disaster, and obviously needs more investigating by me. Even the built in Wolfson 2.4 Watt power-amp sounds fantastic. I have run it powering small DIY speakers using single 3″ ‚fullrange‘ drivers of about 86dB efficiency , and for the price the sound is amazing, if not a little under powered with speakers of that efficiency. All the other outputs DAC, SPDIF, Analogue and Headphone sound far better than my expectations. I use a 5v @ 4 Amp power pack.

    My Putty window looks like this, not exactly of course. Should it?

    Should I just be able to paste the code into it at the ‚Green Prompt‘ ?

    When I try to login to the ‚max2play‘ network, it asks me for the password, but doesn’t ever connect. When I setup Access Point, and because I cannot login to SSID ‚max2play‘ I get locked out of the max2play Gui until I reconnect with LAN, then I can remove Access Point and wireless returns. Before I remove Access Point all the settings and Passcode ‚mypasscode‘ look correct.

    Strangely, there was an occasion earlier today when a laptop I have running Windows 10 found the max2play Gui while Access Point was running. It found it all by itself at http:/

    No idea how! Cannot seem to reproduce it again.

    Hi Alex,

    Thanks for your brilliant instructions. Unfortunately, I am stuck at step 12.

    I have been able to log into the Pi with Putty using your instructions, but I am unable to paste into the DOS type window at the ‚prompt‘. I thought that I may have to start the desktop from the ‚prompt'(startx), but that just causes a fatal error. Should I type in the 6 lines of code that you list for step 12? I am not really sure how to do this while creating separate lines of code (as you show), or doesn’t it matter that it is typed in as just one line?

    To be honest, I am not sure I need to do step 12, as ‚everything‘ up to step 11 seems to work!? I have two USB wifi dongles, although one appears to be more suitable than the other. At step 11 both allow me to connect wirelessly to the Max2play Gui either by going to http://max2ply on my Windows devices or through 192.168.1.XX on my Apple and Android devices.

    If I install Access Point at this stage one of the dongles brings up SSID ‚max2play‘ as a visible network on all devices, but does not allow me to login using ‚mypasscode‘ on any of the devices. The other dongle, an Edimax EW-7811Un, does not appear to allow the creation of an SSID for the Pi.

    From your wording in step 11, „ONLY if there is a problem with the wifi, do the following“ it appears that step 12 is to help if you have no wifi, and cannot see the ‚max2play‘ Gui, which I can.

    From the short experience I have had, it appears that this Access Point problem could be USB wifi dongle dependent? Do you think that maybe only a few dongles may be totally Access Point compatible with Max2play and the Pi? Ahhh… I just don’t understand why I cannot login to the successfully created SSID.

    Thanks again for your time, help and any suggestions.

    Hi Alex, Noop and Fredly,

    I am having the same Access Point problem. I can see max2play as a network on my devices, but cannot login using ‚mypasscode‘. Noop, I will try your script, but as I am a complete novice with the Pi and programming it may take me a little time to work it all out. Hope the Max2play people can fix this in a future release for amateurs like me. I am on 2.27.

    Alex. Glad you got it working. Fredly, did you have any success?

    Alex. I have the new Cirrus Wolfson card, and have to say I am very impressed with the quality of all outputs. Well worth the money.

    Hi Mike,

    Thanks for your reply, and clarification. I am such a novice, that I wasn’t sure if a kernel update was a software or hardware update. Obviously it is software, and doesn’t permanently ‚change‘ the Raspberry Pi.

    Hi Mike and Heiner,

    Mike, thank you for the info. Bluetooth would be great.

    Please excuse my novice questions, as I am completely new to the Raspi and know nothing of programming. I guess the fact that the Raspi, Cirrus card, and max2play is all working for me is a testament to max2play, and it’s ease of setup. Especially, after reading of others problems with the setup.

    My question is, if I update the Kernel and it all stops working for me, am I able to go back, or is the kernel update a permanent ‚thing‘, like a bios update?

    Sorry Maximilian and noop, I now see the ‚run command‘ plugin link above in noop’s reply.


    3. Februar 2016 at 2:27 #18333

    Hello Maximilian,

    Could you please tell me where to find the plugin “Use Command” from “noop”. I cannot find it on your Addons/Extensions page. Is that where it would be?

    Hello Heiner,

    I have recently set up max2play (Premium) on a Raspberry Pi 2 with the Cirrus Logic card. My ‚install‘ of m2p shows Version 2.27 / Raspberry Pi at the top right corner. Does this mean that I can now ‚use‘ the ‚Kernel and Package Updates and Upgrades‘ options on the ‚Raspberry Settings‘ tab, even though it warns ‚Upgrade to latest Kernel (breaks Wolfson Audio cards!‘ ?

    Is there any benefit in upgrading to the latest Kernel?
