I have a favor to ask of someone. I need a voltage and polarity measurement of the two pins of the charger. Looking at the front of the controller such that the screen is visible, which pin (left or right) is positive? We no longer have the charger base and thus I dont use the controller much any more, mainly because of great apps on Ipad and Android, but we have new security settings on the router and the squeezebox needs to be "re set up". I cannt find an app that does this setting up. If I knew which pin was positive I could hold a DC power supply on the controller pads to give the controller enough power to do its temporary job.

The right one is positive.
Itís 5V and a USB power supply will do. I know because I changed the connector of my charger to spare me the power supply brick and to just plug it into one of my 5V multi-charger outlets

Thanks for the quick reply! Holding a 5V supply on the pads is a great activity to do while watching the olympics.

You can also configure the receiver using the Net::UDAP tool. The windows exe that doesn't require you to install Perl separately can be found here

If you need another platform where you will require Perl can be found from here

The correct cradle plug top PSU (PSM11R-050) is listed as +5 Volt DC @ 2 Amp Max.
