Hi all,

I'm a new user of the Duet system, actually I'm setting it up for my father-in-law who's music crazy (~50,000 mp3s!).

When I installed everything the 1st time I was using v7.0.1, but nothing seemed to work correctly, the server would hang, the scanner would crash, and the web interface would hang.

So, after reading some posts here I downgraded the server to v6.5.4, now the controller can't find any music sources apart from the SqueezeNetwork. However it sees the Squeezebox OK, and I can ping the controller and SB from the PC OK, and the firewall is off.

I've tried re-installing the server, I've tried updating the controller's firmware (which doesn't seem to work either), I've tried factory resetting the controller, I've tried inputting the server's IP into the controller but when I select the IP in the music sources list the interface just "jolts" (i.e. doesn't do anything).

Do I need to downgrade the controller to get it working with 6.5.4?

ETA: Environment desc.:
Windows XP Home SP2
Firewall off
SB connected via wireless network

Thanks,
Tom

Well, it appears I should have read the manual becaues the Duet won't work with v6.5.4.

There are worse things I could have done on a Saturday evening.

Just think on how much experience you are gaining. :)
