Just got home tonight, switched my PC on and hoped to listen to the Squeezebox.

However, while Squeezecentre (v7.3.3.) is showing that the track is playing, and the track shows in the display of the Squeezebox, it will not start. At the Squeezebox end it will toggle between "Paused" and "Now Playing", but the track fails to start.

Internet radio will play ok.

So far I've tried:

Re-booting PC
Switching Squeezebox off at mains, disconnecting power cable and ethernet cable.
Re-loading firmware, to v127.


Any thoughts anyone?

Panic over!

My music is on an external hard-drive - this seemed to have "jammed" for whatever reason. Unplugging and reconnecting the power seemed to free it up.

Maybe it's about to fail!
