I just tried the "Virgin Radio UK" stream that is currently listed in the "Roku Online Audio Center" on my PC and it worked. URL is http://mp3-vr-128.smgradio.com:80/ I also tried it in a (different) preset I have for the same station on my Soundbridge; that succeeded too and the...

That's a good and positive example actually. You knew (before you upgraded) that you had a repeatably correctly-working environment with 2.5. I think a lot of people might _think_ that, too but because they haven't rebooted various boxes (certainly not *all* of them) for a while, then when the inevi...

Suggestion before 2.7 upgrade: Reboot everything first

Watching these forums since the release of the 2.7 firmware, I'm struck by the idea that in quite a few cases it isn't the upgrading to 2.7 which is causing the reported connectivity problems, but rather the rebooting of the Soundbridge device (done at the end of the upgrade) which might well be the...

I'm thinking the issue might lie along the lines of: * PC IP: 192.168.1.x * Gateway IP: 192.168.1.1 * Netmask 255.255.255.0 * Soundbridge IP: 192.168.0.1 That is, the Soundbridge appears to be on a different subnet from the other devices. If the OP is already setting a static IP on the Soundbridge, ...

Is there any way to trigger a rescan on launch - I have not found such a switch / option. Maybe have a look at the runtime switches listed on this page of the Firefly wiki: http://wiki.mt-daapd.org/wiki/Runtime_Switches NB: I don't know if these startup switches are still current (or still operate ...

Could it be related in some way to Firefly doing a rescan at the same time as you FF'ed the duplicate track? Looking at the times for the library rescans in your log extract, the amount they varied (with I'm guessing no change to the library content between those scans) makes it look to me like the ...

SORRY i forgot to add that the 2 units are located about 5cm apart on either side of a wall. So assume they are both in the same position in relation to wireless signals. etc. You're probably right but _something_ is making those two ostensibly identical units behave differently, isn't it... If one...

What I would suggest is to take Soundbridge "A" and swap it with Soundbridge "B", then see which of them gets a useable wireless connection (ie acquires IP address, etc, as well as able to play music + internet radio). If the problem is with wireless interference or range, then s...

Re: Changing channels

How do you change the channel on the router to stop the buffering problem??? It depends on your specific router. You will certainly need to access its browser-based management/configuration interface. From there if you can find a screen for wireless setup, it should have a "channel number"...

Working for me too - and the 64k AAC+ stream also - on my M1001 with the same 3.0.10 "Roku Audio Center Beta" firmware as wideasleep1 is using. NB: That 3.0.10 build of the firmware isn't as "new" as the latest 2.7 beta builds (eg 3.0.10 still has the M1001 random muting bug whic...

DNS 1: 192.168.1.136 This looks questionable to me. Do you intend for the computer/device at 192.168.1.136 to be the DNS server for your Soundbridge? What I would have expected is that that DNS entry would be either (1) your router at 192.168.1.1 or (2) the DNS server address of your ISP (which wou...

Just to follow on briefly from my earlier posting in this thread, as far as I can see the rebuffering issue for internet radio station on Soundbridges affects people who are a "long way away" from the streaming station. In my case, I am about 200msec ping time from http://www.radioparadise...

I am in Australia with a Soundbridge M1001, which I use about 1/2 for listening to Internet Radio (mostly Radio Paradise) and 1/2 local music (mostly MP3, served from Firefly running on a NSLU2). I use a wireless G bridge (Linksys brand, can't remember the model) connected to the Soundbridge, so it ...
