Soundbridge and iTunes 8

Tue Apr 21, 2009 8:17 am

I presume the current version of SB (3.0.44) is not compatible with iTunes 8, since my SB cannot see any music libraries (although it is connected to the network and internet.

Is there any chance this might be fixed in the near future?

mac os x 10.5.6
iTunes 8.1.1
SB M1000 3.0.44

Welcome to the forums _ _ _

You will be pleased to learn that your presumption is incorrect. Which you would have discovered if you had bothered to use the Search button :roll:

Thanks, that's good news. I did use the search function and most of what i read was problems with IT 8 and SB

So how do I make it work?

Update the SB firmware to 3.0.52 beta and you should be back in business.

Tried that, but the SB says the software is up to date.

I do not own/use a MAC, but this will tell you how to upgrade to 3.0.52 :wink:

OK, I found it and upgraded to 3.0.52 - but no luck, still says 'No Music Libraries found'

Any other suggestions?

stolzy, dumb question but you do have iTunes Sharing checked in iTunes>Preferences>Sharing? Equally have you power cycled your Soundbridge & Modem/Router?

I'm on a Mac running 10.5.6 with M1000s running 3.0.52 & iTunes 8.1.1 (10) and I have no problems connecting.

Yes to all of the above.

I've tried connecting to two different wireless aceess points. iTunes' ports are open in the firewall.

and no doubt you've checked that you're definitely connecting to your LAN and not a neighbours'? (has been known to happen..)

and that the path to your library in iTunes prefs is correct?

Are you able to wire up your soundbridge to the router and check it connects ok? (remember to remove the wireless CF card before cabling it.)

The name of the lan is correct and I can connect to the library on a friends laptop (iTunes 7.x.x)

Yep, and iTunes plays perfectly on the local machine

It is connected. I can see its name and Mac address in the router's config page and I can ping the soundbridge from any of the connected computers

Thanks for chipping in.

to be honest then I'm stumped... pretty much the only other things I can think of are - are you using a crossover cable rather than an ethernet cable? and maybe it's a router issue, though if you connected fine before upgrading to iTunes 8... Have you changed anything recently on the router side of things?

You might try downloading the firefly server software and seeing if you can connect that way:

worth bearing in mind comments I often put in posts on the firefly forum (currently down) for Mac users about shortening the share name and other bugs on startup. Search under my username andyg if you decide to install firefly.

No the router is the same - I have two access points on the network and its the same situation with both.

I already have firely running on the mac in question.

Care to elaborate a bit.

Do you have one router (DHCP server actually) or does each AP have a DHCP server running?
iTunes shared libraries & Firefly rely on multicasting for client / server discovery.
It does not work across multiple subnets unless you configure it to do so.

Care to elaborate a bit.

There is only one dhcp server (the router). There is another wireless access point (not a router and no dhcp server) whic is connected to the router via ethernet.
Everything is on the same net/subnet
