    I agree, it's a lot of work just to avoid a reboot about once a month.

    LUA_TINT seems to drive matters. It's in the LMS version 5.1.1, and 5.1.5, but not in the Lua 'stock' 5.1.1.
    Yes I ran into that when upgrading lua from 5.1.1 to 5.1.5.
    In the end I applied the 5.1.2-5.1.5 lua release patch sets to the logitech lua 5.1.1 sources with only a few conflicts to resolve.

    cant get radio firmware to update

    ive followed the instructions below but my radio never gets the new firmware - the update option on the radio only shows me the usual 7.7 release
    any advice?

    my cache folder is
    /var/lib/squeezeboxserver/cache

    and i put the 7.8 firmware files in /var/lib/squeezeboxserver/cache/updates
    ive rebooted the server many times, reset and restarted the radio, but no luck
    i also tried changing the file owner/permissions to rw and squeezeboxserver which is the owner of the other files already there


    You need a local LMS and the radio should already be connected to it.

    Find the cache folder path in the LMS settings->information tab near the bottom. Mine is /opt/logitechmediaserver/cache

    Unzip baby_7.8.0_r16798.zip into the cache/updates folder and restart LMS.

    I strongly suggest a factory reset of your radio BEFORE installing the custom firmware for the first time. After that, I've found it's not necessary.

    A factory reset will delete all settings, applets and patch installer patches including the lms 8 connectivity patch.

    Navigate to Home > Settings > Advanced > Factory Reset > Continue on the Radio to perform the factory reset.

    After rebooting and completing the initial setup the radio will eventually prompt you to install the 7.8.0_r16798 firmware.[/QUOTE]

    You can rename the new firmware files to custom.baby.bin and custom.baby.version and see if that works.

    (Note: I was going to point to the relevant documentation on the wiki but it seems to have disappeared ?!?)

    That probably wants to be in @ralphy's announcement post: https://forums.slimdevices.com/showt...l=1#post995413

    (It does work, I had forgotten too, so thanks for the reminder).
