View Full Version : Radio acting up

After a Christmas Eve playing music synced to my living room Touch, my kitchen Radio started acting up. I can control it through LMS, but when I select music through the unit itself, it doesn't actually start playing the new music, but stays playing the original tracks. The power button turns off the display, but music keeps playing for quite a while. My other Radio is working fine, so it doesn't seem to be a LMS issue (and yes, I have unsynchronized the players).

Settings > Choose Player, is the Radio actually controlling itself?

Guess I would have noticed if I had started hearing music from the living room, but the amp was off.

Now how the heck do I explain to my wife what was wrong? "The display and keys in the kitchen were really operating the player in the living room. You see there is this feature..." :)

One idea to implement is to have different background pictures for every player it can control .
Yes you can change the background picture in every “controller state” so that you can have different background.
Probably a leftover from the controller software .

Prefrebly a mini version of the art you use on that player ( if it has one like a Touch or another radio ).

I did this a lot when I used my squeezebox controller way back , it then was obvious from across the room which player you’d selected .
