    LMS 8.0 & SqueezeBox 2 - "Connection Timed Out"

    Upgraded to LMS 8.0 from 7.9.1 on a Synology - registered the private repository and it selected the version to download. Upgraded via Synology package manager.

    After upgrading:
    - ran a complete rebuild of my music library, my music is in LMS.
    - The screen plugins that I use all work.
    - My squeezebox finds the music just fine, but that's it.

    The Problem: when I hit play (either via the Squeezebox remote or via LMS) the Squeezebox says it's playing whatever song I've selected for a few seconds (but with no sound) and then reports "Connection Timed Out" and turns off to the standby screen. All songs are standard MP3.

    This same Squeezebox was working perfectly with 7.9.1 from the same server yesterday. I've done a simplistic reset of the Squeezebox and LMS but that changed nothing.

    Any ideas where to look? Was there some magic upgrade detail that I missed?

    Check out server.log (Settings/Information).

    I've been trying to do some troubleshooting, ended up re-installing.

    I shutdown the server, renamed the old install directory and did a fresh install of 8.0 from the repository (8.0.0-1594451286). Exact same result. Can play Pandora, BBC, but my own mp3s try for 10 seconds (exactly) then my Squeezebox 2 reports "Connection Timed Out" and skips to the next file (if there is one) and same thing happens.

    Here's the server log after trying to play some of my mp3s and playing pandora - don't see anything obvious re: timeout:

    Note that the silly is the automatic conversion of colon and the letter p. No idea how to turn that off in this message tool.

    I'm going to try 7.9.2 and pray.

    Otherwise, where can I get 7.9.1?
    7.9.1 isn't on the Synology EOL site since it was beta, and it's not on https://sourceforge.net/projects/lms...es/DSM6.x/old/ either - just 7.9.2

    Did the scan finish before you started playback?

    Yes. I usually wait a couple of hours before trying to play music. Settings->Information clearly states that the scan is complete.

    Anyway, just installed 7.9.2 and same result. Mmm.

    Nothing new in the server.log either. This is interesting if annoying.

    I've eliminated the Squeezebox 2 as the source of the problem since I also have a Squeezebox touch. Same issue, albeit it times out in 4 seconds. Both used to work fine, now not. So clearly this is something to do with LMS.

    Next step is to try the Synology EOL 7.9.0-062 version and see if I can make it work (again). I've found 7.9.1 but not in Synology format at http://downloads.slimdevices.com/Log...Server_v7.9.1/ ; if 7.9.0 works I'll research how to convert the format to .spk unless someone can tell me where to get 7.9.1 in .spk format (that would be nice).

    Thanks!

    Oops. Correct that. Not sure 7.9.2 didn't work. Stupid package manager automatically updated me to 8.0.0.

    Have to try that again and turn off auto-updates.

    If you haven't already it might be worth looking at this thread.

    Thanks. I've looked through it but don't see anything immediately parallel to my problem. Still no joy here.

    So far, I've tried:
    8.0.0
    7.9.2
    7.9.0 (old version - I had a copy of an old working instance of SqueezeCenter and so started it. Same symptom. Not a perfect test since it was 2 years old).

    None can play my mp3s.... yet Pandora/BBC work fine. This all worked fine before the 8.0.0 upgrade and NOTHING else changed. This is very interesting.

    Something in my environment might be the problem, yet nothing changed from before the 8.0.0 upgrade and LMS used to work like a charm.

    I'm doing a complete uninstall, reboot, install of 8.0.0 w/ no plugins added and I'll see what it gets. Sorry for not replying sooner, but a rebuild of my library takes ~3 hours.

    I'm going to look at possible permissions/firewall/network issues next. To that end, questions:
    1) Perl: What version of Perl is required? My system has 5.24.0-0074 which I assume is stock Synology, but worth asking.
    2) Ports:
    I have fairly tight firewall rules (no, not on the internet - you'd be amazed what IOT devices, TVs, Webcam try to do in your environment).
    From what I know, LMS uses ports 3483, 9002, 9090.
    a) Does LMS now expect any different/additional ports open ?
    b) LMS is on port 9002 on Synology. Does this LMS require 9000 as well?
    c) There are 2 Perl processes listening to port 3483 when LMS is running. Is that normal? One per client maybe? (Squeezebox 2, Squeezebox Touch for me)
    4) VLANs: Could LMS now possibly care about VLANs??? I have several on my system. Given that BBC/Pandora work, doesn't seem likely but you never know.

    Thanks anyone for any comments/ideas/answers/questions.
