    Hi!

    I would love to update LMS to the latest version but there is no way to easily upgrade it.

    I’m using Max2Play 2.53.

    The „Show available version“ button from the web interface is always empty and putting the URL pointing to the latest nightly in the „Alternate source“ text box seems to download the package but still reinstall the already installed package.

    I can see the latest package in the „/var/lib/squeezeboxserver/cache/updates“ but the installer seem to ignore it.

    Thanks,

    Stéphane

    Another interesting side effect is that whenever I install Bluetooth, the headphone jack stops to work.

    I usually use Multisqueeze and both the HiFi Berry Dac+ Pro AND headphone jack are used. Once bluetooth is installed and „configured“ for the Squeezebox Server, the jack does not work anymore, even if I disable and uninstall Multisqueeze and just use plain vanilla Squeezelite.

    The only cure to gain back my headphone jack is to uninstall Bluetooth.

    Hi Mario,

    I have disabled the „Autostart Desktop“ but to no success.

    Also, I don’t have the sysdefault:CARD=ALSA – bcm2835 ALSA, bcm2835 ALSA – Default Audio Device as part of the available options for my setup. I do have sysdefault:CARD=Headphones - bcm2835 Headphones, bcm2835 Headphones - Default Audio Device which does not work either.

    As for „trying the whole thing without the display“, you mean physically disconnecting the display?

    Thanks,

    Stéphane

    Soooooo….

    I downloaded the latest Buster image and reinstalled everything. I still cannot get the „Stream to Squeezebox Server“ option to work.

    Again, the „Stream directly to Max2Play Soundcard“ option works perfectly fine.

    I’m really clueless and after hours of trying, I don’t know what else to do.

    What information can I provide so that you can help me out?

    Many thanks for your patience and support.

    Thank you for the advice!

    Knowing I have a Raspberry Pi 7″ Touch Display and the image that is suggested for it is Stretch, what am I looking to in terms of configuration to be able to make the Buster image on par with Stretch for touch display support?

    Thanks!

    Hi Mario,

    Those are the exact steps I’ve followed. My phone connects to the bluetooth interface with no issue and I can stream directly to the Max2Play soundcard with no issue. Only streaming to the Squeezebox Serve is giving me issues.

    The part I’m not following is when you say that „squeezelite must run with your sound card as output device“.

    All I can say is that my settings are working fine when listening music from my library or Spotty.

    My Squeezelite debug info is as follows:

    Hi Mario,

    Thank you for you reply. So I tried everything you proposed, namely:

    – Start fresh with the latest Stretch build for 7 inch Touch Display
    – Update all the modules I’m using
    – Install the nightly 8.2 Squeezebox Server
    – Install the WaveInput plugin fix for 8.x

    I have then again followed the instructions you are pointing to.

    Unfortunately, I get the same results as last time.

    The peculiar thing is that I can stream directly to the sound card but going through the Squeezebox Server is not giving any useful results.

    I posted all DEBUG info in my previous post. Maybe there is something that would make sense to in there?

    Thanks in advance,

    Stéphane

    Hi!

    Sorry to tag along this thread: this is my first post and I believe I cannot create a new topic.

    So I’ve spent a few hours trying to get streaming from my phone (Samsung Galaxy S8) to my LMS instance over Bluetooth on my pi to work with no success.

    Streaming directly to the Max2Play Soundcard works fine (using it as a bluetooth speaker) but streaming to Squeezebox Server does not work for me.

    When I click on “Bluetooth” in Favorites, nothing happens. The “timer” stays at 0:00 or goes up to 2-3 seconds and then stops and no sound comes out of my setup. See picture: No sound playing

    Also, instead of being named “Bluetooth – [name of my device]”, my favorite is just named “Bluetooth”.

    I believe my device is connected as it’s name is shown in green. See my debug info below.

    I’m running version 2.53 of Max2Play over the Raspberry Pi 7“ Touch Display Bundle with HiFiBerry.

    I deactivated Multisqueeze just to ease troubleshooting.

    Below is the debug info from Squeezelite:
