View Full Version : My 2 Squeezeboxe Classic went suddenly "crazy" - they don't start a music title

Hi, I just ran into a strange thing. Both classic Squeezeboxen went out of order the same time, I checked them.
It's not a complete breakdown, which is even more odd. :confused:
Everything is fine... box is starting, connecting, displaying..., but when I try to start a title, they won't start :mad:
... and it's independent from the way of their connection, either to my server (@Synology) or th mysqueezebox.com.
I can navigate, either with the remote control directly or trough the webinterface or an app like squeezecommander - everything appears to be normal, but they won't start music.
Also changed the way of connection to the a/v receiver (analoge or digital), no sound, no vu-meter working, no time scale running.
I tried factory reset several times, different connection ways, different control ways ... it drives me crazy, since my daughter claimed the Touch and I have nothing for my listening room :(

So, what's the catch here?
Any ideas?

Try stopping & restarting the LMS program itself. Try connecting to MySB.com from the SB3 players themselves (not from web or phone control).
Tried rebooting router?

Thanks for the reply, Toby. Yes, I did eveything, you mentioned and I had really hope in that "manually connect to mysb.com thing" (because I thought, maybe it's the server), but it's the same result unfortunately.
I tried different stations, they connected, showed me the title playing, but again: no start!
Touch, Radio and Boom are working both ways fine - not even a slightly similar behaviour, like the classics...

On LMS WebGUI page Settings/Information page - check that the information about the SB3 players is "correct" - i.e. IP address, Mac address, firmware version and matches what the players say using player firmware menu.

After an unsuccessful switch to MySB.com try unplugging power to the SB3, plug it back in, re-connect to MySB.com, try playing again.

@ bpa
Ok, I checked this and the information in Setup/Information@Squeezebox Classic is exactly corresponding with the @Webinterface.
Firmware is 137
There are no problems to connect either with LMS or MYSB.com - everything is fine until I expect hearing something or see the clock starting

@ toby10
Tried your suggestion and it reconnects fine to MYSB.com (as it did before).
I can choose a radio station, display states "buffer filling", then the music title is being displayed, but the neither the clock is running nor a simple tone is coming out, VU-meter is somewhere in the middle.
:confused: :confused: :confused:

You could try a xilinx reset (sound chip) - same as factory reset, but press "1"

I'd suggest taking one of the SB3's to a different network (friend? neighbor?) see if it plays correctly connected to MySB.com.
My guess is a network/router issue on your end.

Is reported Mac adress the same as the sticker under the player ?

Really try the Xillinkx reset , it have saved many players
