    Duet receiver keeps restarting

    After coming back form a two week trip I was able to play music for 2 seconds then receiver appears to restart (Wifi button goes to red, blinks, eventually back to white). However, when I hit play again, I get music for 2-30 seconds, same cycle.

    Is this a HW problem?

    That is very likely a power adapter that's past it, third party replacements can usually be found on Amazon, Ebay and such. With a bit of care you kan often use a universal adapter also as long as you ensure to get one with the correct voltage, power output, connector size and polarity. Note that the Receiver has a different power adapter than the other models of that era.

    I agree that it's a failing power supply.

    Cabin system - Rock solid with LMS 8.1.2 on Win10 Pro - 1 RPi 3 Model B/Hifiberry DAC+ Pro/PiCorePlayer and Squeezeslave

    However, I am not sure if this website is still active? Formatting seems a bit strange

    I just went to Radio Shack with my old power supply and said I needed a 9 volt power supply with a connector like the one on the OEM power supply. They have a power supply that you can set the voltage between several choices and it has swap-able connectors. The connector doesn't quite fit as tightly as the OEM connector, but it works. The power supply is rated at up to 1 Amp so that more than covers the power needs of the Duet Receiver.
