The new version is based on the latest version of Raspbian. So all advantages of the new device that Raspbian offers are included. With new version of Raspbian there is space for more improvement. The performance of SqueezePlug & MAX2Play is amazing! It all runs very fluent!bobbydriver wrote:Great news - is there any specific config in the new version to take advantage of the new quadcore CPU in the RP2?
You can't install SqueezePlug & MAX2Play on top of an existing installation. Kodi is running on SqueezePlug & MAX2Play so that's no problem. Because SqueezePlug & MAX2Play uses the latest Raspbian as it's platform you can install other things on top like on Raspbian. I can't say anything about Retropie.mjb152 wrote:If I wanted to install on an existing server, how would I go about doing that ?
I'm running Kodi & retropie , and would prefer to have squeezplug running on the same Pi.
Sorry, I did not get you! Do you use a multi boot system or all on one installation? If all on one, use SqueezePlug & MAX2Play as basis and install Retropie on top!mjb152 wrote:sorry, should have been clearer.
I'm running Raspbian, latest version, I manually installed Kodi and retropie on top, so I can choose which to start.
I'd like to also run my squeezebox's from the same server, so wondered if I could do that manually via an install script ?
Ups! On the boot screen? Both at the same part of the boot process? What Type of Pi do you use? I tested with all different types and even the old ones run. What about your LAN connection? Maybe apache need one, but I don't think so! Please give me some more information!atinkler wrote:Hi Thomas
Tried to use the Noob and the standard IMG but the install both got stuck on start web server... apache2... it wouldn't go any further and I left it for about 5 mins
That sounds very strange! The problem is, that you can't post the output of the boot process in here. And I can't assist you, cause it hangs while booting! So troubleshooting will be very difficult! What about this: Try the NOOBS card once more and press the Shift Key while booting. Overwrite the installation once more and try to boot again. If it hangs at the same place, there must be the devil in your Pi! Do you have the chance to boot it on an other Pi? Since yesterday a lot of people reports that everything is running fine! We've made a lot of tests in very different environments! Can you try to boot without the Hifiberry card? Maybe there is a problem with compatibility! We haven't test this card, because we don't have this card for the new Pi!atinkler wrote:PI B+
Yes exactly the same place
Just put the old SP image on and it works fine
Really need 3.18 version for the hifiberry.... the old SP is on 3.12 and this is causing me issues
Hi Thomas, I'm not using multi boot, it's all in the same raspbian base. I was hoping to just download a script or source code and then install on top of what I've got already, or even apt-get install the packages. Then I don't have to redo everythingtruehl wrote: Sorry, I did not get you! Do you use a multi boot system or all on one installation?

No, sorry SqueezePlug & MAX2Play is a complete distribution, not an installable package.mjb152 wrote:Hi Thomas, I'm not using multi boot, it's all in the same raspbian base.

Very good news! To get acces to the Samba Server you have to give the Samba User "root" a password (you see it at the end of the Site). Then login from your PC with user "root" and the given password! That should work!atinkler wrote:good morning.
So after a few hours of battling with my pi i took off the amp and it booted like a dream!
I then re attached the amp and rebooted and it worked again.
I also had a wifi adapter that hasn't been set up attached but that was removed and not put back on. . So i think I'll be buying a 12v 3a psu today (currently have a 2a) to ensure its getting t the juice it needs.
I think i got samba up and running but i couldn't get into any of the boot files via eees explorer or pc...ii can see the share but it's not accessible And i need to change a few modules for the amp. . Can you advise on this or will i need to create and amend using ssh?
Kodi and the other SqueezePlug & MAX2Play components are running simultaneously. If you start Kodi, it opens on the HDMI Output.mantekka wrote:Might be a stupid question but if I were to install, how would I switch between using XBMC and Squeezeplug?
Yes if you choose autostart Kodimantekka wrote:If I have it connected to HDMI of my TV, does it boot up as kodi everytime?
Yes, you can use the Squeezebox Server as a DLNA Server e.g.mantekka wrote:Can I access LMS/Squeezeplug via kodi ?
No, they use the sound output exclusivlymantekka wrote:If I played a movie on Kodi and selected some squeezeplug music to play via web interface, would both play

If you shutdown, you have to switch of power and then power it up again!hughmcnish wrote:Will reboot without a problem BUT cannot get Pi to restart after initiating a shutdown? Will initiate shutdown, let it complete, switch off power and back on but then cannot see pi on my network? help
It definitely works, can I assist you? Are you available via Skype? Pleas sen a PN.atinkler wrote:Hi Thomas
No luck getting samba shares to work with Windows.
Es explorer which always works for me is able to access the share but the files are
These are both locked drives
USB-drives should be recognised automatically and mounted to /media/usb0 /media/usb1 and so on. Some USB HDs need their own power. please be sure your HD will be recognised. From the console type: "sudo fdisk -l" do you see something with /dev/sda1 ???Verulamius wrote:1. My USB hard drives are not recognised by the RPI and so I can not access my music library.
That's strange! Do you have the same effect with a standard Raspbian image? I can't believe it's up to SqueezePlug & MAX2Play.Verulamius wrote:2. When I connect up the RPI to my home network, via LAN to my router, all of my devices on my network stop being able to access the internet, including email servers; this problem disappears when I disconnect my RPI.
