Re: 24/96 Squeezeplay and External USB DAC

OK, so the XS is a very revealing DAC. However, my ears are bleeding a bit from the slightly excessively harsh treble. I'm using powered monitors that do have a high frequency attenuation option. With this set at max (-2db) there a still occasions where I'm wincing a bit. Perhaps the Behringer was n...

Re: 24/96 Squeezeplay and External USB DAC

OK, having switched the unit into mode 2 I can confirm it works OK. However, with no hi-res files or ability to audibly tell the modes apart I don't know which should be better for my use with normal flacs. I'll run it a while like this and see whether it sounds good over a longer run.

Re: 24/96 Squeezeplay and External USB DAC

Hi. I also got hold of a Dac magic in the current sale for £49. Even with only 16/44 flacs and no tweaking the bass seems more taut and separation better than the uca222. However, according to Cambridge audio's own info, using the xs inusb mode 2 further improves sound quality (as well as giving acc...

This joggler is just timing out trying to access the squeezebox.com site. I never get chance to check/change the details

Re: registering joggler with squeezeplay.com

Thinking about it now, would reflashing potentially solve the issue?

Re: registering joggler with squeezeplay.com

Yes, I think you're right that the spoofed address is preventing registration. However, I've no idea where to change it, or indeed what to change it to. The unit is useable when controlled from a phone app, but severely limited as a point of use as without registering to squeezebox properly it is un...

Only 'main'usb for audio adapter?

One thing I am finding is that the usb dac is only operational on the main usb port on the right of the joggler. Two of my jogglers have been modified (not by me) to have a usb port on a trailing wire. These won't work with any of the few dac types I have. Is this normal? I thought usb is usb is usb...

Beringer uca222

I just found what looks like an unused uca222 at a car boot sale. The guy wanted £3. I didn't even haggle. Unopened cds included! Seems like a nice neat little unit. 48khz Max is obviously sufficient for CD rips at full quality. Works out of the box with the joggler. Sorted. I love 'obsolete' tech. ...

registering joggler with squeezeplay.com

I've encountered odd errors over the years with my jogglers and their registration on squeezeplay.com. On occasions when I seem to be missing apps I realise there's some entirely unknown email address listed in the registration dialogue. Another issue I know others have encountered is simply being u...

Re: NEVER BIN A JOGGLER

Thank you Pete for the tip regarding how to force boot using the keyboard. That was critical to recovering this joggler.

Re: NEVER BIN A JOGGLER

I can't remember the history of this one. I think it was in regular use, then found hung one day and wouldn't recover. Now it's booting itself into it's internal image again OK and running sqpos. I'll monitor it. It has no WiFi card, so even if it needs an external image it can be physically interna...

Re: NEVER BIN A JOGGLER

OK, I managed to reflash it again. This time it automatically booted into the internal image. I will now reflash to sqpos I think.

Re: NEVER BIN A JOGGLER

OK, so now I can boot into reflash USB but obviously there's no point as that has already run. Trying to boot into internal memory (which should have been flashed now) just hangs. I'm making another external image to boot into. Although I wonder why I can't boot to internal. It did work once prior t...

Re: NEVER BIN A JOGGLER

OK, our posts crossed. So, you think even after a reflash, the thing might not boot as it won't know what to boot from?

Re: NEVER BIN A JOGGLER

Omfg! This time fs0:boot made it start the reflash operation (I think!).
Reflash underway.

Re: NEVER BIN A JOGGLER

OK, really not sure what/why this happened. With reflash USB in I managed to enter fs0:boot which actually brought up original open peak OS. At this point I'm not sure what to do. Recycling power may prevent boot again. I'd actually like to reflash to pnpiii I think.

Re: NEVER BIN A JOGGLER

Thanks Pete. I am sort of making progress. I am trying to 'boot' using a reflash USB. I have a keyboard that now allows me to switch num lock on/off. But typing fs0:boot (no spaces?) Or fs1:boot isn't apparently doing much although at one point I saw some messages flick past, just legible on the top...
