I run a couple of Radios & a Touch from 7.6.2 running on an HP Windows Home Server. Whenever the server auto reboots following a Windows Update, all of the players power on.

Is there any way to prevent this?

Is it just the screen that changes state or do hey start to play music

Screen powers on & Now Playing screen reverts to default. They don't start playing.

It's no big deal but it would be preferable if it didn't do it.

You might try different player settings for synchronizing power. That's all I can think of that might affect this behavior.

If you set the screen savers for both Off and Stopped to the same thing. and the Off and Idle brightness to the same level, then there's little difference between on/idle and off. This is how I've always configured all of my SBs, using the Date/Time screensaver. The player may power on and show a different screensaver and brightness, but it will soon fall into the idle state.

Thanks, but that would still leave the issue of the Now Playing screen setting being reset.

The player setting is being changed? The only way that can happen is due to bad synching between mysb.com and the local server. This synching never worked reliably, so your best bet is to disable it in Settings > mysqueezebox.com.

It's already disabled & always has been.
