Time to Change

I loved my SB until it died one day, and I had concerns about the lack of ongoing development, so I moved to the Squeezebox, and haven't regretted it for a moment. The SB was good but for whatever reasons it appears to have had its day.

I think I finally solved my problem. At some point M/S had created a new workgroup - all my network places belong to another workgroup. I deleted the spurious workgroup and everything's back to normal.

I don't know how Firefly accesses the iTunes library, but it might be worth noting that in iTunes 7.6 the XML file is called iTunes Library.xml in previous versions it was called iTune Music Library.xml

It might be that Firefly is trying to access a file that doesn't exist.

Absolutely no system error reports. As far as using Firefly goes that's become problematic given the fact that it uses iTunes Music Library.xml If you change the name of the xml file that iTunes creates iTunes Librarty.xml to the old name of iTunes Music Library.xml then the moment you make nay chan...

I think we probably have related problems, perhaps showing some slightly different aspects as you're using Vista and I'm using XP. SB shows up in my DHCP Allocation Table and everything looks fine there, IP address in range etc. Funnily enough I've just switched the SB on and its found my server alt...

I've checked all my Firewall settings and all the exceptions seem Ok, but I have something very peculiar with my network. Not only is the SB not recognised as a device on my network, neither is my router (I'm not even going to consider the logic of that). The only other thing I can think of is iTune...

Further information (which may be relevant to Dono's reply). I've gone into My Network Places and the SB is shown there. I right-clicked on chose properties and came up with the message: 'The device you are trying to use is not currently available on your network. Check to see if the device is on th...

Answer to Dono: I pleased it's not just me. I'm using XP Pro, would you happen to know if this has a similar facility for discovering the network? I'm half convinced that it is something M/S has done during one of its (in)famous upgrades. Answer to RokuLyndon: No, I don't have to restart SB I just n...

Having to Restart iTunes

For no apparent reason (ie no change in system) SB suddenly keeps losing the iTunes server. I'll play some music and everything's fine. I switch off SB (to get some work done) and when I switch it back on there's no server. I stop and start iTunes and everything's back to normal. Anybody got any ide...

Live 365 VIP

I'm quite happy with the way that Roku works with Live 365 - I am VIP member and simply tell Live 365 that I want stations to play in an external mp3 player. I choose which stations I want to listen to play them and then save the stream as a playlist. Next time I want to play the station I just load...

One SB - Two Accounts

Is it possible to assign a single SB to two accounts. I've just introduced my wife to RadioRoku and she would like to sign in to her account and play through the SB, which is already assigned to my account.

If it puts your mind at rest I'm using iTunes 7.4.3.1 with the Roku beta that fixed the comma problem, and everything is working fine with my m1000 (which probably means it'll burst into flames the moment I post this).

And if Soundbridge suddenly stops working after a Windows automatic update, the chances are that Bonjour has been uninstalled - happened to me at least 4 times in the past few months (but as Microsoft also started to block its own ActiveSync software as well, you have to laugh - then install Linux).

I'll answer my own question, it looks as though it is part of the comma problem with the latest version of iTunes
