Bought a duet because the price was good, SEK 1795, but it was a huge misstake.
The receiver installed without a problem but when it came to the controller it all started.
1: The clock showed random time.
2: No option to upgrade the firmware, could only choose "cancel". Tried from a SD card, still only option "cancel".
3: Didn't show up in the server web interface.
4: Several time it got stuck, couldn't change player or music source.
Squeezebox was a good product before Logitech took over, the only product with the Logitech logo that works is the Boom but I reckon Logitech hadn't ruined it jet and it was still Slimdevices HW and SW.

What a piece of sh** the duet is.

Many SB3 units also have the Logitech logo.
The Touch works fine IME. As long as you stay away from TinySC/TinySBS/TinyLMS.
The Duet is fiddly.

I miss the Slim Devices days, too, but your chronology is a little off. The Duet was developed and released well before the Boom, and indications from SD people are that the Duet -- and especially the SBC -- were well underway before the acquisition.

The Duet controller won't show up in the webUI unless you've enabled the beta feature on the controller for it to be a player, only the Receiver shows up in the webUI. As aubuti says, you should do a factory reset on the controller and then set it up from scratch. Home -> Settings -> Advanced settings -> scroll all the way to the bottom for the Restore factory settings item.2 Duets - 1 for upstairs and 1 for downstairs
