    Hey Mario,

    by using a new flashed OS, I got the Squeezebox Server to run smoothly. It can be controlled via the Web Interface and an Android App I tried. I hoped to be able to use the MPD player, but I take what I can get 🙂

    THANKS a lot for your help,

    Hey Mario,
    thanks for helping me out.
    I installed Squeezelite and Squeezebox. But I cannot figure out how to use them.

    A) Squeezelite will start without any problems. I cannot find any (web) interface, that will allow me to control this. Is there any address like „“ or such, that I might use?
    I hoped there would be a big blue button, as there is with the MPD player. But I don´t see any. What am I missing?

    B) Squeezebox installs fine, but cannot be started. I get this error message:
    We trust you have received the usual lecture from the local System
    Administrator. It usually boils down to these three things:
    #1) Respect the privacy of others.
    #2) Think before you type.
    #3) With great power comes great responsibility.
    sudo: no tty present and no askpass program specified

    Unfortunately, I have no idea, what that is about. What settings do I have to change, to get it running?

    Hey again,
    this is the result of my tests:

    It looks like MPD has a problem with your sound card or the ALSA mixer.
    Please select the „sysdefault“ driver again and make sure that neither Squeezelite nor Shairport are running in parallel.

    => This did not change the outcome

    If that doesn’t help, please test whether playback via Squeezelite and the Squeezebox Server causes the same problems.
    => I Can´t install jivelite without a license. I have to admit, I am not willing to buy one, before I know it is working fine.

    In particular, please try to see if internet streams differ from your local music on the hard drive.
    => I installed the spotify plugin and connected my account. How can I control the stream, how do I start streaming?

    Does the Health Checker show anything special in the Settings/Reboot tab?
    => NO:
    Status Checker
    Internet: Verbunden
    CPU Load: 0.29
    SD Card Usage: 18%
    Temp CPU: 41.2

    Maybe your power supply is too weak or the Pi is overloaded for some reason.
    => I thought about the overload myself, but have no idea, what could be the cause for that.
    I hoped you guys might know more. Is there anything I should check?

    The power supply I use, was provided as a package with my PI. How much output should a power supply have?

    In the latter case, please burn a new image on the SD card and try again with the standard settings.
    => tried with new image 4 times already, this did not lead to any no change

    Hey MarioM,

    thanks for all these tips!! It will take me a few days to test them all. Once I am finished, I will give feedback.

    I am hopefull, one of these tips will work.
