View Full Version : all wireless SBs lost after restarting SC; wired SB ok

I just noted an odd thing here: I restarted SC, to enable a few plugins
(line in/out, I believe), and when it was up again I noticed that it had
lost contact with all my wireless SBs: two Receivers and a Boom.

The Receivers were showing the blue light, and the Boom was asking for
network settings.

[in contrast, my one wired SBR was unaffected by the SC restart]

Leaving all alone for some time produced nothing other than frustration.
Power cycling the boxes restored things to normality, and everything is
perfect again.

Is this to be expected? Anything I can do? Should I involve Logitech
support?


Even odder: the Boom was playing internet radio (via my local SC) and
this continued to work throughout, even whilst the Boom was asking for
network settings.

I am not knowingly using SN. I have an account there, and SC knows the
details. My players seem to have registered themselves there, despite me
knowing no PINs. Yet whilst the Boom continued to play, SN said the
players were all "not connected".

all a bit beyond me :)


thanks much for any comments...

cheers,
calum.

That doesn't sound 'normal'.

What OS is SC running on and how did you restart it?

quite.

apols. This is on Debian Linux, and I did the usual:

/etc/init.d/squeezecenter stop

/etc/init.d/squeezecenter start

That's an interesting one. A recent update to RHEL 5 changed my server from static to DHCP without me knowing! It took me a while to work out why I could not connect to it after a reboot because both SBs found it without a hitch.
