Another reboot of the system hosting SqueezeCenter and another reboot of the Squeezebox and the firmware updated. I'm not sure why it suddenly started behaving properly.
For some reason v7.4 won't display my network drives in "browse" - only local drives. I could not type in the FQDN for the NAS hosting the music. It did allow me to put in the IP address which is actually better since now I no longer need a persistently mapped drive.
Getting the upgrade to v7.4 was a tad more painful than it should have been but I am happy with it now.
I did the upgrade from v7.3.3 to v7.4 this morning and now my Squeezebox is down. The install appeared to go fine but the Squeezebox would not update the firmware - nothing happens when pushing the brightness button. The circular icon just spins and the upgrade never starts.
I deleted the cache and preferences as was recommended in other threads - same behavior. I uninstalled Squeezecenter, deleted the directory, rebooted, and then reinstalled v7.4. Same behavior - the Squeezebox won't update and hangs indicating the need to do an upgrade.
I also noticed when setting up the new install that it is no longer possible to map the music library to my mapped drive at Z:\Music.
Before I roll back to 7.3.3 do you have ay ideas?
