i see there is a new version of the "stable" to download. in fact i noticed because my SB Touch just demanded i download a new SW version, i could not click out of it, but it was still 7.7.3 (which i already had, i suppose it wanted new FW).

in any case, i see no documentation on what's new changed updated fixed etc in 7.7.4... any pointers?

Is LMS reporting itself as 7.7.4, or is it only new firmware (r16676)? If the latter, then it may be the new firmware to fix issues with Rhapsody/Napster (see http://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?100830-Rhapsody-crashing-Squeezeplay-devices/page9). If the former, got me boss.

I just upgraded 4 SB Radios (1 UE)to the new r16676 firmware without too much hassle. I'll report back if I notice any difference. I'm running 7.7.3 on my Win7 server.

7.7.4 ? I keep getting 7.7.3 r16676 wanting to install on all my devices since yesterday or thereabouts. I've now disabled software updates as I'm quite happy its already working ok and I don't want it broken :)

(I'm already running Logitech Media Server Version: 7.7.3 - 1375965195 @ Mon Aug 12 11:14:33 CUT 2013)

Is it worth the risk of upgrading??

Could this be the fix for Napster crashing has been released?

Edit to add: yes it is, see this thread http://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?t=100830

Indeed it it the 7.7.3. firmware update, the 7.7.4 is in the "nightly" beta folder.

Like another gentleman answering this thread, I have disabled updates.

Thanks!

Just a quick question about disabling software updates? Is that the setting in LMS? Would changing that to "Do Not Check" also keep the Radio's from forcing FIRMWARE updates?

I changed it under LMS -> Advanced -> Software Updates

If you get anything displayed on the players you can hold/press Home button on the remote to sidestep it.

But please don't call support if Napster or Rhapsody doesn't work...
