View Full Version : Squeezebox Classic not retaining its name

2012-10-30, 04:16
I've just connected a Squeezebox Classic to my network. The Server is LMS 7.7.1 on Windows 2008 Server. I have repeatedly renamed the Squeezebox using the web interface, and the change seems to stick (i.e. the new name appears on the drop-down list in the web UI), but the next day it reverts back to "Squeezebox". The only thing that happens overnight is the rescan.
What could be resetting the name of the Squeezebox?
Other players are not affected (2 Booms and 2 PC's)

The SB Classic is probably registered on mysqueezebox.com. While you rename it, the “old” name is retrieved from mysqueezebox.com again.

Turn off MySB.com player settings sync, rename player on MySB.com the same as on your LMS.

You can also set its name in firmware (long press-left on the IR remote, there is an option in Settings)
The DHCP/DNS servers on the LAN will probably see the name set in firmware and use that too.
Then SBS/mySB.com should comply, absent of any preferences on that player.
