Occasional LMS issue - order of tracks gets screwed - any thoughts?

Hi All this is more likely an LMS problem rather than anything on my Jogglers, but I thought I'd ask here anyway... I have LMS on a server connecting to SqueezeplayOS on a couple of Jogglers. We have some audio books on my LMS which a grandchild likes to listen to at night on one of the jogglers. Oc...

SqueezeplayerOS: "Due to Rights Restrictions..."

Hi All quite possibly not a joggler issue per se, but anyway... I run SQPOS on a joggler; I've recently changed my home server but I imagine that is not relevant. Sometimes, recently, when listening to BBC Radio4 say, a male voice cuts in with a repeating message: Due to Rights Restrictions, this pa...

Re: SqueezePlay OS (Version 3) for OpenFrame

Update - I seem to have got this sorted. I did a more full clearout of LMS on the new server (dpkg --purge, and then got rid of /var/lib/logitechmediaserver IIRC), then reinstalled (7.9.4, good enough for me I think), and things seem to be OK. I will take a look at 8.x later, after I've moved everyt...

Re: SqueezePlay OS (Version 3) for OpenFrame

When LMS player connects to LMS it is told the version of the LMS it is connecting to. There is a bug in the version comparison check that is made by the Squeezeplay in SQPOS303 which leads to it incorrectly reporting that it cannot work with versions of LMS 8 and higher. I have posted a fix Squeez...

Re: SqueezePlay OS (Version 3) for OpenFrame

@jkn Maybe try pulling the power on the Joggler and leaving it for 24 hours, then power up and try again ? :geek: Hi - TBH I had thought of that, it's finding the right 'domestically acceptable' time... FWIW I also tried to remove the current 'active' server, so that I could start from scratch as i...

Re: SqueezePlay OS (Version 3) for OpenFrame

I have an associated question/problem to the one above, though not exactly the same... I have a couple of jogglers with sqpos303, connecting to a home NAS running logitechmediaserver. This all works fine, even though the server version is old: $ yum list logitechmediaserver logitechmediaserver.noarc...

Re: Joggler Problems (2 Jogglers, different prblems)

Nice one [emoji106] some people also put a usb stick internally in place of the usb wireless card which isn't the best then fit an external usb WiFi Dongle in the side port . There is a recommended supported one but I forget what it is at the moment. Sent from my VOG-L29 using Tapatalk I think the ...

Re: fitting/using an external I2S DAC rather than a USB one?

Yeah - given the lack of I2S in the system,. and having reminded myself of the differences, I don't think this is worth pursuing (for me, at the moment). I already have a cheap USB DAC kicking around, I was just wondering about the alternatives...

fitting/using an external I2S DAC rather than a USB one?

Hi All Apologies if this should be in the 'hardware hacking' board, or has maybe been done to death previously, but I couldn't find much on this with a bit of searching... I am thinking of getting another of my stash of jogglers up and running with SQPOS. I am already using a couple of these with an...

Re: Logitech & Joggler stuff for free

Thanks from me too for this. I live on the South Coast and used to occasionally listen to Radio FIP. It will nice to give that a go again on a Joggler!

Re: Trying to bring a car boot Joggler back to life - short somewhere?

Hi Pete Great news jkm. Yes what I replaced was a zener diode and I called it a fuse. Apologies. It was burnt to a crisp. I do not recall now what it was I replaced it with. That said just install a similarily sized zener diode rated at ~ 5VDC and low watts (well like 1 watt). OK, well that clears t...

Re: Trying to bring a car boot Joggler back to life - short somewhere?

Well, curious... I took a closer look at the black device: http://images.jkn.webfactional.com/2019-07-02-181452.jpg and it looked pretty suspect. In fact it crubled away easily under the slight pressure of a pair of pliers ... and now the Joggler boots up fine! So, two thoughts: - why is no-one ment...

Re: Trying to bring a car boot Joggler back to life - short somewhere?

Hi Pete There is a fuse near by the 5VDC input on the motherboard. Typically if the fuse is burnt up then you see it and there will be no power to the main board. Maybe the fuse shorted to ground. Take pictures of the board near the 5VDC input (both sides) just for some extra eyes. I have replaced o...

Trying to bring a car boot Joggler back to life - short somewhere?

Hi All I blew £3 on a Joggler at a Car boot sale at the weekend - no PSU but I have a surfeit of those... On powering it up, not a lot happens, so I've dismantled it to investigate a little further. I think there must be a short somewhere - the input voltage drops way down from 5V when it is plugged...

Re: Unable to connect to WiFi: CRDA error

Is the WNDA3100 (also dual band, I think) also supported in SQPOS V3, can you tell me? I have no idea, I'm afraid - a lot of Netgear drivers are in the kernel and I included as many wifi and ethernet USB devices as possible, so if there's any kernel support for it at all, it is likely to be there. ...
