If you are not having any problems, please post in the "fine" thread here: http://forums.slimdevices.com/showpost.php?p=647418&postcount=1

If you still have issues with 7.6.1 and you have tried the latest nightlies (listed below), please summarize your issues here.

SqueezeboxServer-7.6.1-32992 or later
Firmware-r9464 or later (not posted for Radio yet)

Thought this might help those of us who are still hanging back to decide if it might be time to take the plunge.

Where do I go to get the nightly and how do I uninstall 7.6.0 and install the new nightly?

Now I think I understand my problems with 7.6.1 I'll do that here as well as in http://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?p=647829#post647829

I've tried 7.6.1r33004 on a PPC Mac running OS X 10.5.8.

I can play anything on my Squeezebox Classic (i.e. with a VFD that doesn't display artwork). However as soon as I do anything that tries to display (or possibly resize) artwork in the web interface or on my Duet's Controller, the server crashes. Starting it from the terminal shows the following in the log when playing a file and then trying to display the artwork:

Bogus input colorspace

Other than not this stopping me from using the web interface Touch or Controller, it works fine!

Does anyone know how to prevent artwork from being displayed other than by deleting it all? I can't see a setting in the web interface.

Aaaagh!

I've been trying to sort out a new problem this evening, in that on some streams the '+' (More Info) button wasn't working ('Couldn't connect to a non http address' error or something like that). So I updated to the new nightly build and downloaded it onto the Mac. The Squeezebox didn't see the update as it was pointing to mysqueezebox.com. So I switched libraries to the Mac and it detected a new download of SBS (still labelled 7.6.0 followed by a build no - possibly the same one it was already using on mysqueezebox.com).

It all works beautifully when using the Mac LAN but can I get get it back to point to mysqueezebox.com? Can I hell! If I choose 'Favourites' or 'My Music' when the Mac is asleep it still tries to connect to the LAN. It then prompts me to either try again or switch libraries. If I choose the latter it tries to connect to the LAN again! So I can now only use the Squeezebox when the computer is awake, although it will continue to play any internet streams that are running. Not very helpful. I'm sure in the past it switched over to mysqueezebox.com.

Any ideas on how to get it pointing back there so I can run it independently of the Mac again?

Thanks in advance for any help on this.

Regards,
Nick

Found something in the Advanced menu mentioning an update for SBS Server on mysqueezebox.com, so downloaded it. When it restarted it prompted me with a message saying that a new download was available (the same one)! So I let it carry on and download it again and when it restarted for a second time I chose 'Favourites'. Couldn't find them so it then switched to mysqueezebox.com (hooray!) and appeared to connect although some of the icons were grey squares. Something's gone wrong though as it just says 'can't connect - failed to parse' if I try to go to Favourites. The whole thing is behaving as thought it's FUBARed. However, it works as it should when connected to my Mac library.

Why can't we have the ability to just be able to do all this from the Squeezebox itself and not have to keep switching libraries? I wonder if the fact that it sees different things depending on whether it's using the LAN or the WAN has confused it by downloading updates multiple times and it has now screwed something up? I also have a feeling that 7.6 is partially responsible as I've never had these problems before.

Next time I'm going to wait until the Squeezebox prompts me for an update. It's the only way to keep things working properly.

I wonder - would restoring the factory settings help?

PS - I've managed to get the Favourites (sort of) working under mysqueezebox.com but most other menu items like Shoutcast, and other radio streaming services are not behaving.

I think we could call this the redundant thread thread.

7.6.0 was so far from being ready for release that it boggles the mind. 7.6.1 has had some _major_ fixes areadly applied and it's STILL so far from being ready for release that it's not funny.

SW is never perfect, its constantly needing improvement. However, I would agree. 7.6.0 was not ready -- not even close. Like so many organizations, it seems the squeezebox development community is scattered around the globe. Still, it all has to come together and go through some kind of rigorous testing before release. Does that happen? It seems these gross library scanning issues would be caught by an even very modest amount of validation testing.

So what is going to be done differently before the next release is deemed ready?

Okay, I trust your judgement. It's hard to tell when there are so many threads, especially when this thread has less posts than the "7.6 is fine for me" thread.

Hopefully, that's the last of my significant problems with 7.6 sorted, and my Radios will stop turning themselves on.

I have three Radios. Two out of three firmware updates had problems. I got the "Unable to download update, please retry or contact support" screen, repeatedly, and couldn't cancel the update with the Back or Home buttons. Rebooting the Radios by holding the power button fixed it, and all three are OK. Please.

And all my Squeezebox-related problems have been solved by Andy's work to release 7.6.1 r33025 earlier today

I forgot to mention that my recent problems were caused by Logitech's servers playing up. The mysqueezebox.com page was either very slow or often came up with a 'Bad Gateway' error when trying to load using a web browser. Thankfully everything was back to normal by Monday morning.

what did r33025 fix? i have 2 booms and a transporter, and they seem to be working fine. however, i also have a radio, and it's behaving a bit wonky, screen won't auto-dim, for instance, and when an alarm goes off, you can't scroll from "snooze" to "off."

This problem - http://forums.slimdevices.com/showpost.php?p=647832&postcount=4 (and reported elsewhere by me over the last week or so) - where Squeezebox Server would crash on resizing artwork on a PPC Mac. It meant that I couldn't upgrade beyond v7.5.6 because every time I tried to play music on my Touch, the server crashed.

It doesn't now - and the changing library size reported by others doesn't seem to be an issue for me - so I'm happy. :-)
