View Full Version : Transport doesn't play...

My NAS server died a few months ago so haven't used my transporter for while, this evening I got around to installing the server on my PC (WinXP) so that I could start using the transporter again.

Everything installed ok, server scaned library and found tracks ok, server finds player, player can see server and music library but for some reason it won't play any selected track. Pressing play on a track results in the usual "now playing" and track name but the track timer never advances and the track doesn't play. When trying to play a track from the web interface the web interface shows the track advancing but the player doesn't and produces no sound.

The player did say it was updating firmware when it connected to the new server install, buthat seemed to complete ok (firmware version 82).

Kind of stumped, any suggestions?

Thanks in advance,
John.

try a xlinx update:
Disconnect power to TP, Hold down the "1" button on the remote, reconnect power while IR button is still pressed - you will see on screen confirmation

Hi John,

Glad to hear that your up and running again. Music is great with a Transporter!

I am guessing you have had good luck with Squeezebox and might even to fairly handy when it comes to PCs and Networking. I noticed that you joined the Forum in July 2007 and have just now completed your third post.

Can I take it you have been happy with your Squeezebox Experience?

Enjoy the Music. Regards,

iPhone

It's been a largely uneventful experience to be honest, yeah a few things could be improved, but I tend to not to fuss to much about details if something basically works.
