Re: Unable to connect to WiFi: CRDA error

Hi Roobarb In fact I'd quite like to try a more modern USB adapter but it's not yet such a problem that I want to take my Jogglers apart and try to find/build drivers etc...! The real solution for me would be to switch to 5GHz, and connect my 5GHz base station instead. I can highly recommend the Net...

Re: Free (broken) Joggler - Just postage costs

Hi I've found my old Joggler on a clear out. It's in good condition externally but doesn't come on. I see a flashing green light through the panel at the back. Searching reveals this is a known issue. I can solder so probably could fix it, but just don't have the time / wouldn't be able to mess wit...

Re: SqueezePlay for Joggler (Native, Ubuntu & SQPOS)

Hi Johnny Good that you got it going. I do recall reading somewhere that the wireless mac address is "derived" from wired mac address as the wireless card doesn't have one. Not sure how accurate this is as I thought all network devices would have their own unique mac address. Anyway, have fun with t...

Re: SqueezePlay for Joggler (Native, Ubuntu & SQPOS)

Hi All Well, I seem to have got things working at last, although I am not entirely sure what made the difference... I did a combination of: on the server, editing /var/lib/squeezeboxserver/prefs/server.prefs (after performing sudo systemctl stop squeezeboxserver ) and clearing out everything, or rem...

Re: SqueezePlay for Joggler (Native, Ubuntu & SQPOS)

Hi Johhny Weird isn't it. I do recall that some "jiggery-pokery" is done to MAC addresses by SQOS, to try and create a pseudo unique address. Reading your last post jogged (pun intended!) my memory in that I had some funnies when trying to use MAC addresses in my router configuration to tie down IP ...

Re: SqueezePlay for Joggler (Native, Ubuntu & SQPOS)

OK, some more real information - the plot thickens... == Joggler 1 only on == MAC address of wlan0 is 90:4c:e5:18:6d:60 My router sets this to 192.168.0.156 via DHCP ssh in, and ifconfig says: wlan0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 90:4c:e5:18:6d:60 inet addr:192.168.0.156 Bcast:192.168.0.255 Mask:255.255...

Re: SqueezePlay for Joggler (Native, Ubuntu & SQPOS)

Hi Guys Thanks for all of the above ... it's heartening to know that what I am attempting to do should be fine. I do need to check the MAC addresses, and in fact in my earlier posting I did notice that the MAC address shown on the server control panel (for the player) was not exactly the same as the...

Re: SqueezePlay for Joggler (Native, Ubuntu & SQPOS)

OK, let's start from the beginning. Hopefully this is more clearly presented information... I have Logitech Media Server installed on a home server (not sure of version, but < 7.8.0)). I do not use mysqueezebox.com (I don't have an account, even) I have two Jogglers on my home network. Both use wifi...

Hi All Volume of Squeezeplay 'jumping' when using SQPOS on Openpeak 7E as on a recent thread in 'Marketplace', I have just bought one of the OpenPeak 7E units, with better internal speakers etc. I've put Roobarb's SQPOS on it and is is mostly working.

Re: 4x OpenPeak 7E on E Bay Sold out

Will these take flashing squeezeplay OS to internal memory, anyone done this? Does the the wireless work in this setup? Wireless works fine. According to Rhubarb's page https://birdslikewires.uk/squeezeplay-os , yes you can use the internal memory. I haven't yet tried, ran it from a pendrive. The l...

Re: CRON

I noticed some discussion about cron (scheduled tasks) a while back, so I built Debian's cron and crontab for the Joggler OS as they appear to be MIA. I've not done anything meaningful with these yet, but attached them in case anyone else wants to do something with them. I'm thinking about periodic...
