    Duet stops playing (like Cybrand) but different, I think :-)

    My Duet stops playing after a while (no fixed duration of playing). It stops with internet radio stations and Spotify and others. It is annoying and my children keep saying: Yes, you shoud have bought another brand like Sonos. I read the problem of Cybtand (I am also from the Netherlands, maybe that's the reason?) very well and did not find anything that could help me (at least I think). Both the player and handset have the latest firmware, my.squeezebox.com is also up-to-date. The network (wireless) signal is good (92%).
    The remedy: when I touch on the handset the symbol for 'Next Track'(>>) it resumes. Is there somewhere as hidden cache that gets full? I have disabled all sleepfunctions on my computer, disabled the screen going black.
    In the advanced settings I have 'ticked' the box for 'preventing going on sleep'.
    So please give me some help and if you ask me if I am playing througt the Logitech Media Server or My Squeezebox, please tell me how I can determine that. I am using Windows Seven Home Premium.

    I am not a big internet listener myself, but to test out if it is the player stream your own music and see if the same results occurr. From reading the forums over the years, depending on the the time length of time listening what may be happening is a shift in the internet handshake protocal causing a loss of signal from the source. just my 2 cents

    Thanks, no I never play my own music through the Duet because I have no clue how to do this! 'Sorry for my ignorance in this matter, but that's the way it is. Though I would like to learn this.

    Try connecting the Duet directly to www.MySqueezeBox.com as a test (i.e. eliminate LMS and your computer as the potential culprit). In fact, turn your computer off when you try this. Now play some internet streams (can't play Spotify this way). If problem persists then you likely have a network or ISP issue. If it plays fine you likely have a LMS or computer issue.

    1. You do that by installing Logitech Media Server on for example your PC

    In browser go into LMS webGUI (right click on LMS icon in lower right tray, select web control), then lower right corner select SETTINGS. Then "basic settings" tab, then browse to the location of your music folder and select that. then LMS will scan your music files. When it is done, these should show up under ARTIST, ALBUM, etc. in the main LMS control page.

    Yes, I succeeded in playing my own music via the Duet: same thing happens, it stops after a while and pushing the 'Next Track' buttom (>>) resumes it.
    For Toby10: could you please talk a little more in the layman's way?
