Hi guys. I'm a new user to this forum as I just bought my Squeezebox Duet today. I bought it a shop, but when i tried to register the PIN I got a message telling me that "This player is already registered to another user".
Have any of you experienced this problem? I can see that the player has been given a name. Do you think the shop has sold me a used device?

Did your Squeezebox come in a sealed packaged. If yes, it's definitely not secondhand.

What is the MAC address of your Squeezebox? And of the Controller?

hi bob1

I wonder if this thread might apply to your situation?

It was a used squeezebox. I returned it today and got me a new one that works :)

Once we have the MAC address of a Squeezebox we could also have unregistered it from the old account, making it free to use in your own.

But as long as you have a unit that works, everyone is happy :)
