Anybody know whether there is an issue with the latest Duet controller software (7.2r2873)? - when I try to access "Artists" who have multiple album entries the controller freezes and eventually reboots - if not then it looks as if my controller is bust - annoying as all else works OK

I filed a bug reporting a similar symptom, but a different cause I think:

You could add comments regarding your situation. If you have an SD card, you could follow the log capture procedure they outline to capture any data that might be helpful to them.

I think it is a software bug and not a hardware problem.

I was having the exact same issue. In addition the controller wouldn't update past version 7.2r2847. I updated to 7.2r2920 today using the SD card method and everything is back to normal.

I can just second that you are not alone on that problem. Same firmware, exact same problem.

I found it here: http://update.slimdevices.com/update/firmware/7.2.1/
(although the version number may change if it's updated)

Edit: I'm using SqueezeCenter Version: 7.3 - 23220 @ Fri Sep 19 03:15:09 PDT 2008

I'm finding more locations in my library where the UI hangs and then the controller restarts itself. So far, I've identified it has nothing to do with my tags, artwork, or MusicIP. I'm at a loss as to what else to try. Logitech has been requesting me to try some things, but we don't seem to be getting anywhere near root cause.

I'm reluctant to move to 7.3 fearing instability. Though I guess it can't be any worse than it is now :-).

Those of you using 7.3 - are you happy with it? Is is stable at this point?

Thanks!
Rich

I wasn't able to update the controller firmware automatically but once done using the SD card my issue with the multiple album artists lock-up went away. I haven't noticed any other instabilities, can you elaborate on your findings? Something I might be able to try and replicate.

On my system, I have discovered 3 artists that if I browse their albums with the scroll wheel, the UI on the controller locks up (scroll won't work and the back arrow doesn't work) and eventually restarts itself. This is 100% reproducable for me with these 3 artists. There may be more artists lurking that have the same problem, but I only know of 3 so far.

I've gotten the UI to lock up while logged into the controller via SSH and I can still navigate the file system, so the controller isn't completely dead. I tried collecting log files to an SD card, but they they are deleted upon rebooting.

I removed the artwork for these artists and cleared/rescanned my library. No change. I also disabled musicIP - no change.

Does this seem remotely like the situation you were dealing with?

Thanks!

Not really :(.

In my case, the controller would work fine until I went to the Music Library > Artists branch. No matter which artist I picked (single or multiple albums) the controller would lock-up and reboot as soon as I when to the screen. The controller also would reboot when it came out of sleep mode.

There was no change at all with the tracks in my library; it started when I tried the 7.3 beta (although downgrading to 7.2 didn't help either). The firmware on the controller was relatively old (late August) and wouldn't update on its own. I haven't noticed any problems since going to 7.2r2920.

hi echo

tks for your input. i installed jive_7.2_r3070.bin on the duet trough ssh and now the artist bug ist gone:

scp jive.bin root@192.168.1.102:/mnt/mmc/.

very easy and straight forward, the manual for it is on the same article page your posted. thanks again ;)

Hi,

I'm afraid I can't help with your problem, but I was wondering if 7.3 has enabled the headphone socket on the remote ?

That's the one upgrade I'm really looking forward to.
